After a recent trip to the Far East I noticed a lot of people using the noise cancelling headphones on the plane (mainly Bose by the looks of it). I now understand why they are popular on flights
To be honest I have never been a fan of Bose and also baulk at the price of the QC15's for something that will e for occasional use. I have been looking at some other contenders and wondered if anyone had some recommendations (from these or others):
Panasonic RP-H700 - these seem to get rave reviews from users but again I am unsure whether cheap is better? The attraction is that they are over ear rater than on ear but that's not a deal breaker.
JVC - HA-NC250 - Ditte re reviews but these are on ear rather than over plus the batter compartment seems to be a bit troublesome.
Goldring NS-1000 - these look good but apparently they leak sound - are they that bad?
Audio Technica ATH-ANC7B - I nearly pushed the button with thses until I read the WHF review......
There are other cheaper offerings from players like Sony which I wouldn't rule out but am looking for that nirvana of decent cancellation and good sound quality. Apart from the first 2 above all the others I have researched seem to have these 2 mutually exclusively.
All help and views much appreciated in advance folks. Budget max of about £150.
