Regardless of what you buy, don't have it loud enough so the person next to you can hear it.

How big is the aeroplane?
I think you may struggle to get a pair to fit a plane! X)

How about the ones in business class?

Depends on what you call cheap...I recently used a pair of Sennheiser HD25 (about £120) on a long haul flight...and was told by one of the flight crew that they are the best headphones in the world

Not sure I would go that far but they were great, small enough to be quite portable but great quality too.

not cheap and not want you want hear but bose make a long haul (12 hours plus ) so much less tiring
sony noise cancelling is pretty good
avoid Philips nc headphones
and do not fall for noise isolating marketing

Bose Noise cancelling have always served me well - they are comfortable on the ears too, which is important if you are a regular traveller/travel long haul.

it all comes down to how often you travel and therefore cost effectiveness

I highly recommend the AKG 451s

Thank you. We're off to New Zealand over Christmas and the rest of the family seem to be sorted, I thought I might invest.

They say a plane with the constant background noise is perfect for noise canceling headphones. They work the best with the same constant level of noise you find on a plane. The next best is in ear as they block background background noise by design, and I have bought ok sounding in ear buds from about £6. Loads listed here. Depends what you want to spend

We got a couple of these for a recent flight and thought they were really good so we got more.
They are small compact and good sound, much better than the earphones they provide.

Oh thanks, I just love that price, will give them a go.

Not sure if you'll need one of these too.
