Here’s a great Father’s Day gift.
If dad travels a lot for work, he deserves a nice set of noise canceling headphones. Yes, these headphones are expensive, but they ease the pain of jet-setting like nothing else. The PS 300 NC’s are Phiaton’s first stab at noise cancelation technology, but the company got it right: The sound quality and ability to mute unwanted sounds compare favorably with Phiaton’s number one competitor—the Bose QuietComfort 3 headphones, which cost $349. We’ve used both during air travel. Here’s what you won’t hear with these on: engine noise from any vehicle, snoring, wind, and quiet conversation. Here’s what you will hear muted variations on: laughter, the *ding* of pilot speeches to the cabin, and babies shrieking (nope, nothing anybody can do about that one). – From Tom’s Guide
