Hey All.

A couple of posts have actually inquired about earphones for flying and also I just wished to upload my.02.

I purchased AirBuds (www.air-buds.com) after reading an evaluation on ladiesgadgets.com searching for a gift for my spouse. These have really changed my travel experience. I utilized to make use of Bose powered sound canceling earphones. Not only were they rather fragile as well as large, I truly simply didnt believe they blocked out all noise.

AirBuds are tiny, made from memory foam, and block out sound very well. Just intended to save you from spending a ton of money on Bose like I did. I assume the airbuds competed about 40$.

Anyone have any kind of other in ear headphone suggestions as I am always on the hunt for an additional good set of earbuds.

Many thanks

Thanks for the head's up. Simply gotten a couple of pairs. I also talked with AirBuds consumer support and also they indicated that they are beta screening a smaller sized earbud for those of us with pathetically tiny ear canals that they graciously concurred to consist of with my order.

If these job, they will certainly be a blessing.

I acquired myself some VSonic GR07 in ear headphones this past summer season and they're wonderful. Fantastic sound high quality (I had some higher end Shure in ear headphones before as well as these are a good little bit better) as well as they come with a bunch of various earpieces, so you're sure to find one that works well for you. I can wear them for hours on end and do not also discover them. They also do an excellent task of separating audio so you do not get much ambient sound.

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

Have to echo the OP's views. Simply obtained the Airbuds in the mail today, and also they are superb. They really felt so light in my ears that I almost forgot that I was using them a number of times. Or it might have just been that I was really into the music being served up by Pandora.

I have actually always heard that earbuds were inferior to noise-canceling earphones by merit of their layout. I've had only a little experience with earbuds and also I have actually discovered that to be type of true, though every one of the earbuds that I've ever before attempted were less than $30. I'm now reading some testimonials concerning AirBuds as well as they look rather excellent. I'm gon na need to check them out and hopefully wreck the rumors.

Very comfortable, and also, after a little difficulty, fit and remained in my pathetically-small ear canals.

Thankful you like them as high as I do! I have not gotten on the online forum awhile due to the fact that I have actually been, well, traveling

I have the higher end Shure earphones that were greatly marked down a few years ago (thanks FT) and also they are a lifesaver for resting on planes - really shut out most everything even when not playing music. I despise the overear bose - would certainly never ever have the ability to side rest with my head stabilized on one of those pups.

These look intriguing, perhaps worth a shot esp. if they additionally block noise.

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

I additionally have the Bose Sound Canceling Headphone (QC-15?) they are excellent, however you can not rest with them on, in Y or J.

Also have a look at Etymotic's in ear displays. They have an even more neutral/analytical noise trademark than others, yet have most likely the very best seclusion beyond customized in ears. They additionally have kids' versions of their earphones that will fit smaller sized ear canals, as well as additionally with minimized level of sensitivity to safeguard your ears from high level output.
