Best Noise Cancelling Earbuds Reviews

Earbuds don’t block as much annoying airplane and other sound as headphones.   So if it’s all about noise cancellation for you, please see the Best Noise Cancelling Headphones Comparison article.

Don’t get me wrong, earbuds still do their part in cancelling noise.  Plus, earbuds can enhance your music or movie and help make your flight enjoyable.  Eearbuds won’t give you embarrassing “headphone hair” and they take up a tiny amount of space in your travel bag.

Best Noise Cancelling Earbuds Reviews

iFrogz EPD33 EarPollution Plugz Earbuds

The audio quality is surprisingly good for around $10.  The iFrogz are pretty trendy too.  I like that they come with 3 earpiece inserts so you can choose the best noise cancelling fit.

JVC HA-NCX78 Earbud Headphone

Moving up the ladder, these JVC earbuds give you more noise canceling than the iFrogz.  About 88% of background noise is blocked by a noise canceling audio signal.  They also put out a better sound quality for around $60.

Denon Ah-nc600k Noise Canceling Earphones

Again another step-up the quality ladder.  Denon rocks even better sound quality, and matches the noise cancellation technology of the JVC earbuds.  But you pay for the extra sound quality ~ $125.

Shure SE530PTH Sound Isolating Earphones with Push-To-Hear Control

Ah, the best of breed.  The Shure earbuds fit perfectly in your ear.  In fact, the Shures come with a button that you can push so you can actually hear that outside world for a moment when you have them on (like the flight attendant asking what kind of wine you’d like).  The sound quality is amazing – the best of the bunch.  You pay for it too – $290.

Remember, you look like an amateur business traveler using airline provided earbuds.  Those earbuds really suck.  So get one of the earbud pairs mentioned above.  It’s worth it.
