IN-EAR OR OVER-EAR HEADPHONES?
POST K1ngston DATE August 1, 09:20
When I was in Singapore Changi airport yesterday I bought some Bose in-ear sports headphones built specifically for training purposes as they are sweat and rainproof. I spent a long time looking at the different options. When you’re on a plane, what are your headsets of choice?

I’ve always had trouble keeping in-ear earphones in my ear (they are forever falling out). While I wouldn’t wear them to the gym, I have a pair of the Bose Quiet Comfort 35s, which are excellent. Two minutes searching online (in the UK) produced a number of different suppliers, all less expensive than purchasing so called tax-free at Heathrow.

On business, when hand luggage space is at a premium, I use Audio Technica in-ear. For long-haul leisure travel I take Bose Quiet Comfort 15 (over-ear), which are comfortable and have great noise-cancelling. The Audio Technica noise-cancelling is not as good as the Bose, but it is good enough.

I have used Bose for years and nothing performs better. I am currently using Bose Bluetooth over-ear noise-cancelling headphones – the rechargeable built-in battery has excellent life and the sound is first rate.
