I bought the Klipsch Noise Cancelling headphones back in August 2013... best money I ever spent. I travel internationally a lot and after having these, I don't know how I ever flew without them. If you put in some ear plugs, put these headphones on, and turn on some music, there could be a crying baby in the seat next to you and you wouldn't know it. The only downside is they seem to be built overly snug on the head. After a 10-hour flight, it can feel like you've had your head in a pair of vice grips. But I'm sure they weren't designed to be worn for 10 hours at a time either. If you take them off every so often and give your head a chance to relax, these are a wonderful buy at this price.
