    "Sony WH1000XM2 Bluetooth Headphones are the best noise cancelling headphones. They are pretty expensive but work very well and are worth the price if you want real noise cancelling technology. They are comfortable, over the ear headphones, but they fold to fit in a case so they aren't as bulky as other over the ear headphones. There is touch control on the right ear pad, which is a great new feature."

    "These headphones are great if you want to shut out the outside world for a while. Yes some sound does get thru but that is always ok with me just in case I need to hear something going on around me"

    "I could not deal with my many plane trips without these. It is no issue with overnight flights any longer. I went to Japan for work and was able to listen and hear my movie on a busy plane. Plus, when an overtired toddler next to me had, had it with the long travel, I didn't even hear the poor tike as he gave his mother issues with crying. I slept and was comfortable hearing nothing. "
