Bose QuietComfort 15
Whether you’re traveling by plane, train, or automobile, you’re sure to encounter some background noise that makes your listening experience less than ideal. Instead of cranking up the volume, use noise-cancelling headphones to, well, cancel out the roar of a jet engine or minimize the screams from a crying baby.
Our top-rated pick are the Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones. They’ve been around for years, and for good reason -- they’re one of the best pairs of noise-cancelling headphones on the market. They’ll cost you around $300, but your frequent flyer will love them.
- Overall score: 8.3 (4.0 stars)

The good: Extracomfortable design; improved sound; highly effective noise-canceling circuitry; device folds for compact storage in included carrying case; 30-day home trial.
The bad: Expensive; when the battery dies, so does the music.
The bottom line: While they're no bargain, the Bose QuietComfort 15s currently offer the best sound and silencing capabilities in a pair of noise-canceling headphones.
