With planes continuing to fly at capacity, noise-canceling headphones are fast becoming a necessity. Bose has been the category leader for noise-canceling technology, but several others have entered the market. There are trendy options from Beats and Ludacris, but there are also more affordable options from Sony, Monoprice, and Audio-Technica, whose entry level option starts at just $79. NoiseHush i7 has all the premium features for just under $100. The headphones create a sound wave that effectively reduces ambient noise, allowing you to unplug from all the flying distractions. The earpieces have leather and memory foam for increased quiet and comfort.
