OK, this one is not for everyone but if you travel a lot (like I do, unfortunately) then you probably want some noise cancelling headphones. I tried several NC headphones by Philips, JVC, Sony and Panasonic and in my opinion it didn't really worth money they asking for it. Of course, YMMV.
Anyway, Dixons Tax Free shop at Heathrow Terminal 2 (not sure if they also sell it elsewehere) offers Altec Lansing AHP712 (see full spec here
) at a bargain price of just £25.52. I have to say that these are the first headphones that really got ANR (Active Noise Reduction) working well, IMHO. These phones aren't the smallest and not the prettiest, but it is really a bargain, compared to competition.
Package comprises of:
2. cables (2 lengths - short one is about 15" and a long one is roughly 6'.
3. In-flight adaptor
4. Thick adaptor (for Hi-Fi)
Note that no batteries (1xAAA required) are included.
I am not sure whether this deal is available in "normal" Dixons or is it limited to airport branches only. But these headphones are normally sold at 50 quid in other shops, so Dixons' offering is quite good.
