    Noise cancelling headphones?

    I'm sure this thread appears every now and then. But I want to make sure what I get fits my requirements. I work on an ambulance that can be very noisy... Diesel engines. Combine that with partners who like to blare the radio... No thank you. I really do not want to fork over more than...

    Buzzing in one side of Noise Cancellation headphone?

    I have never used a noise cancellation headphone before, so I figured I would ask you people who have.  In the left side, I'm hearing buzzy outside noises being reproduced by the driver. Is that normal? I'm also not hearing the 'fuzz' that I can hear out of the right side, but the NC feature...

    Which is better for blocking out low frequency engine noise: IEM's or full-sized noise cancellers?

    hmmm... as title says really.     I've got no experience with noise cancelling headphones, but even deeply inserted IEM's such as Etymotic ER-4P's I found lost a significant amount of bass (not that they had much to begin with) to low frequency engine rumble in planes, trains and buses...

    Best for airplane use?

    Going to Hawaii. Long flights. Looking to reduce or eliminate engine noise. Hate in-ears. Down to JVC has600 or has700, Philips $30 active noise cancelling or any other suggestions at the $30 price point. These will only be used on planes once or twice a year. I have Senn pc360 that I love...

    Inexpensive noise canceling headphones for school

      Need recommendations on an inexpensive set of noise canceling headphones for school.  Will be mostly used for listening to lectures, not msuic so sound quality isn't that important. Want something that doesn't require an amp.  Does not need to be portable. Any suggestions?  Thanks :)
