Noise Canceling Headphones for Business Travelers

Noise canceling headphones are a must for frequent travelers. They are the best way to tune out obnoxious passengers or crying babies when traveling or simply tune out everything going on around you to focus on a report or catch up on sleep. According to Wikipeida, noise canceling headphones are different than passive headphones because they reduce ambient sounds using active noise control.

There are number of noise canceling headphones on the market. Our top noise canceling headphone picks for 2016 are:

Bose QuietComfort 25

The Bose QuietComfort 25 is ranked the Best Noise Canceling Headphones by CNET. Bose noise cancelling technology monitors the noise around you and cancels it out, helping you focus on what you want listen to. Headphones work the best with Apple. Some remote features do not work with Android or Windows phones.

Features travelers will love include:

  • Fold up, compact carrying case
  • 35 hours of use powered by AAA batteries
  • Ability to keep running (a bit lower quality) after the batteries die
