Hey All.

A few messages have actually inquired about headphones for flying and also I just wished to upload my.02.

I acquired AirBuds (www.air-buds.com) after reading a testimonial on ladiesgadgets.com seeking a gift for my partner. These have actually truly revolutionized my traveling experience. I used to utilize Bose powered audio canceling headphones. Not just were they somewhat vulnerable and also cumbersome, I really just didnt think they shut out all noise.

AirBuds are small, made from memory foam, as well as block out sound extremely well. Just intended to conserve you from spending a ton of money on Bose like I did. I think the airbuds ran for around 40$.

Anyone have any kind of other in ear headphone recommendations as I am always on the hunt for another great set of earbuds.

Many thanks

Many thanks for the head's up. Just ordered a number of pairs. I additionally talked with AirBuds client assistance and they showed that they are beta testing a smaller earbud for those people with pathetically small ear canals that they enthusiastically accepted include with my order.

If these work, they will certainly be a blessing.

I acquired myself some VSonic GR07 in ear earphones this previous summer season and they're great. Excellent sound top quality (I had some higher end Shure in ear headphones prior to and these are a good bit better) and also they feature a number of various earpieces, so you make sure to locate one that works well for you. I can use them for hours at a time and do not even see them. They additionally do a great work of separating noise so you don't get much ambient sound.

The unfavorable - they set you back a great little bit greater than the Airbuds.

Sony XBA-1. The foam-filled silicone pointers obstruct sound virtually along with ear plugs, they are comfy enough to use all the time, and also the sound is great.

Need to echo the OP's sentiments. Simply obtained the Airbuds in the mail today, and also they are outstanding. They really felt so light in my ears that I nearly forgot that I was wearing them a number of times. Or it can have simply been that I was very right into the songs being served up by Pandora.

I have actually always listened to that earbuds were inferior to noise-canceling earphones because of their design. I have actually had only a little experience with earbuds and also I've found that to be sort of true, though all of the earbuds that I have actually ever before attempted were less than $30. I'm currently checking out some testimonials regarding AirBuds and they look respectable. I'm gon na need to examine them out and hopefully shatter the rumors.

Really comfortable, as well as, after a little difficulty, fit and remained in my pathetically-small ear canals.

Happy you like them as long as I do! I have not gotten on the online forum awhile because I have been, well, taking a trip

The customer care was also excellent via them, did you share the same experience?

You're dead-on, niceflyer. The consumer solution was even far better than the product, as well as the product was quite darn excellent.

Schure and Bose

I have the higher end Shure earphones that were massively marked down a few years ago (thanks FEET) as well as they are a lifesaver for sleeping on airplanes - truly obstruct out most every little thing even when not playing music. I hate the overear bose - would never have the ability to side sleep with my head stabilized on among those pups.

These look interesting, possibly worth a shot esp. if they additionally obstruct noise.

I use the Shure in ear earphones, they are wonderful, I have the ones that support a Mic as well as I use them daily for phone telephone calls.

I additionally have the Bose Noise Canceling Earphone (QC-15?) they are terrific, yet you can not copulate them on, in Y or J.

Likewise take a look at Etymotic's in ear displays. They have an even more neutral/analytical audio trademark than others, yet have possibly the most effective isolation beyond personalized in ears. They additionally have children' versions of their earphones that will certainly fit smaller ear canals, and additionally with reduced sensitivity to safeguard your ears from high degree result.

Do you assume the erymotics would have much better isolation than the memory foam airbuds?
