This is my first post,and I'm just a basic listener w/o sharp ears.
I own an old Senneiser PXC310(china made), and a Bowers & Wilkins C5(again china made) underway to me.
I fly pretty often, and sleep with my headphone while working on ship.
The PXC310(non-bluetooth) works fine less the issue with hissing sound when NC is turn off, but due to its age the batteries seems to hold less. Biggest issue is I woke up in the morning with "red-ears" and my client is starting to get suspicious that I have been drinking onboard( in fact I did ;-\ ).
I ordered the B&W C5 w/o reading the spec thinking that its a NC headphone... guess its not going to work well for me.
These are the spec of the next headphone I'm looking for( yeah I knew its rather impossible ).
Player : Samsung note 10.1
Price : US$250 but willing to pay more
Manufacturing country: Anywhere minus China ( Labelled me as a xenophobia if you wish, I'm trying my best NOT feeding the communist)
Noise Cancelling: Yes, Must
Connectivity: Wireless if possible
Batteries: Non-rechargeable... AAA or AA its fine.
Microphone : Non!
Form: IEM (if possible) as small as possible.
