I bought these the last time they were up as I travel a fair amount. Firstly, it is tight. I fly cross-country and I do have to regularly re-position them to keep them comfortable as they are really tight. I question how comfortable they would be for longer flights. They do sound great, but I am also not convinced the noise cancelling works properly as I could still hear the annoying woman in the seat next to me yapping last flight. Given the opportunity again, I would probably drop the extra hundred for the Bose.
