Look, we all know flying isn’t exactly the most fun and exciting of things. Planes are generally crowded, stuffy, cold, and most of all, noisy. Between seatmates chatting, excited children, the clanging of food or drink service carts up and down the aisles, and the noise of the plane itself, it can be quite hard to hear.
So, it shouldn’t surprise you that more and more people figure there is at least one problem on that list they can solve: cutting out the noise. That’s why headphones are on the rise on airplanes, especially noise canceling headphones.
Carry a pair of these, pop them on once your flight takes off, and you’ll be enjoying the in-flight movie, your own music, games, or video on your mobile device in no time.
