I'm looking for a pair of reasonably priced ANC headphones (read not over $150) for our trip to Hawaii.

Yea, Bose is out there but some of the reviews I see say they are the best at NC but cheap construction and the wires to the earphones break with minimal handling. Besides, they are pricey!

Any recommendations from the consumers here on the FDP?

I bought a pair of these almost two years ago. I’ve used them a lot on planes and I recommend them.

There's a pair that always intrigued me, but I have never heard them. It's the Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC. With an MSRP of $199, you may be able to get a better deal. I've always enjoyed Sennheiser headphones. I have a trusty pair of HD600 for home and HD1 Free for portability.

I once bought Monoprice noise cancelling headphones for my wife and they were very well-built, but the sound quality and noise cancelling were mediocre. They were under $100. She ended up with Sony MDR 1000X. The noise cancelling on these are absolutely phenomenal! If you read around, these are equal to or better than Bose in terms of sound but probably better built. But, like most of the better ones they were ~$350.

Sennheisers for me. HD 280 Pro. High attenuating for studio and live monitoring. Obviously these are not wireless. They seem to do a nice job and they feel nice on the head. Picked them up for $150 or so on sale at Sam Ash. Hope this helps.

Thanks all. I'll check these out. I hate to drop a whole lot of money on these as I don't fly that often but my next trip is about 12 hours in duration. Wired or wireless is not a point of contention.

One more quick question, any problems using the iPhone to play music?

I ran across the Sennheisers mentioned in my above post at Sam Ash this weekend. They were priced at $99. Not a bad deal at all.

I have a set of Sony noise canceling ear buds. they have a little box for a AAA battery on the cord along with a couple of control switches/buttons. They were about $100.

I like the fact that they are easy to pack as they take up no room in my laptop bag. They really do a good job of cutting jet engine noise and passenger clatter on an aircraft. Two thumbs up. I real help in catching a nap.

I've had these about 6 years now and they are still going strong. I don't really treat them kindly sometimes. Newer models are Bluetooth although I like the cord personally. Less chance of loosing something.

I usually use an ipod with the phones for a larger selection of music.
