I fly. A lot. I gave my Bose Quiet Comfort 3 's to my wife a few months ago and have been using stereo ear plugs. I want to go back to a noise canceling/reducing on-the-ear headset. I like the Bose, but their stuff is all I know. My criteria is Small, easy to deploy and pack case and cables Well made Long battery life Good sound Great noise reduction Very comfortable Bluetooth? I'm not shopping price at all. I like buying great stuff, infrequently. But I'm not an audiophile either, since my ears are as old as I am. I'm a bicoastal guy who doesn't get upgraded to Business enough and consequently sits in the back with the amateurs and their noisy, snot nosed offspring. Too often on redeyes, dammit. I need my solitude. Is there anything better for the traveler than the Bose? Cause it's pretty good. Thanks.
