I was on a flight once and when I pulled out my own noise cancelling headphones, I realised that the guys sitting next to me and across from me were also using the same one.

Mine's a SONY. I find it looks like any ordinary home stereo sized headphones and it sounds a lot better than the ones they use on Singapore Airlines or Lufthansa. There is only one AA battery and it fits on the right side of the headpiece. You'll never even notice it cos it's so light.

Retails for around US$130, I think. I also bought one from Sennheiser. Mistake. There is a seperate amplifier piece that is really annoying as I really didn't know where to put it. Sound quality too is inferior to the SONY.
