For listening to movies on a MacBook Pro inside a loud jet aero-plane 35,000 feet in the sky. They do not need to be wireless or inexpensive. Thanks for any recommendations for ones you have used IRL.
  1. My boyfriend has the Bose over-ear noise canceling ones. They are awesome! You switch on the noise canceling function and it is almost scary how much of the outside noises you can't hear. I'm also pretty sure these are the same ones that Jimmy Fallon plays that whisper game with.

  2. Beats studios or solo2s.
    If you're predominantly listening to rap or bass-heavy music. Still great quality and noise-cancelling as hell though

  3. Pioneer HDJ Series
    I prefer DJ headphones. I have worked as a DJ (and dated a couple of DJs as well). In my experience, DJ headphones are going to give you the truest sound, while also cancelling out surrounding noises. Pioneer is my preferred brand.

  4. I have the Parrot Zik 2.0 and they are stupendously lovely and nice looking. Also quite often they are on Amazon for $260 down from $400.
