Which Noise Cancelling Headphones Are The Best?

Listening to music or watching films or TV shows while on the road is a good way to pass away the time.

At the moment, however, I only have the standard white Apple ear buds. They're functional, but they're not exactly the best earphones on the market in terms of audio quality.

I've been looking into getting something better, but I'm really not sure which brand and model is best.

Bose have some very nice models and there's also a nice linkup for Flying Blue members.

There's also a few from Dr Dre that look pretty good.

So which ones would people recommend and why?

Ideally ones that have a proper carrying case ie. are airplane friendly, as that's what I'll be using them for most.

    a personal drooling point for me has always been sennheiser,and these ones seem to cover all the bases, for not too bad a price, also, sennheiser are built in ireland so supporting irish jobs, more so!


    personally dont recommend Dres, over priced for what you get. bose though as well are good,

    I have a pair of Sony MDRNC7B that I bought in South Korea http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B001TUYQRS/ref=asc_df_B001TUYQRS8070226?smid=A28K49HTOPFIM6&tag=mneylon-21&linkCode=asn&creative=22242&creativeASIN=B001TUYQRS&hvpos=1o4&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=253803711478525618&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt= and they have served my well for many a long distance trip and they fold up nice and small.
