Sony’s noise-can­celling head­phones have been con­sis­tently good, with its en­gi­neers aim­ing to cre­ate a quiet place as sub­tle as a mo­ment’s pause in a con­cert hall – that is, a live, res­o­nant si­lence, un­like the dead space some noise-can­celling de­liv­ers. The lat­est WH-1000XM head­phones use a sig­nif­i­cantly en­hanced pro­ces­sor to quell voices as well as engine noise. When you touch the right earcup it lets in the out­side world, so you can hear the ques­tion: “Chicken or beef ?” When you’re done rest­ing and want to lis­ten to mu­sic, the head­phones can re­pro­duce a full range of fre­quen­cies up to 40kHz, and they are com­fort­able to wear for even the long­est jour­ney. Plus, though they are wire­less, they can be con­nected to in-flight en­ter­tain­ment sys­tems with a sup­plied ca­ble. £330,
