Noise cancelling Headphones for travel

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My creative headphones have partially died and the battery life wasnt great anyway so time for new gear.

I was thinking of getting Sennheiser PXC450 headphones for travel.

Any experience with these? Any recomendations?

I can't speak to those particular headphones but every Sennheiser product I've ever owned has always been great quality materials and sound.

I would recommend the Ultimate Ears Triple.fi 10 IEM's.



I own these and they're great. I just find IEM's better for travel. The sound quality is great and any review will tell you that. Some people have reported fit problems with these, though. I have smaller than average ear canals and the smallest set of rubber tips (the IEM's come with multiple sets of tips, including a set of Comply Foam tips, to get the best fit) works well for me. There's also a piece that wraps around your ear, which works well for keeping the IEM's in place.

Been hearing lots of good things about ATH headphones. And there is a link to good refub's of them here on the site Link Been thinking about the A700's myself.

Thanks I shall look into all the options provided.

Edit: I should add these will be for travelling on long flights, watching movies and music more so than gaming. Great noise cancelling is a must.

I don't think you need something like the PXC450. I would just choose something with good isolation such as the Audio Technica A900s or Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
