It is a while since last reviewing any noise cancelling headphones, and so here is a review of a new model in the Plane Quiet series of headphones, these ones being the Plane Quiet Platinum with Solitude Technology Active Noise Reduction Headset.
Listing for $100, and available for slightly less on Amazon, the headphones are more attractive and better designed than the previous model Plane Quiet headphones (which remain also on sale, albeit at a reduced $60 price point). The provide reasonably decent noise cancelling, have almost no perceptible electronic hiss, and provide average sound quality.
So how do they compare to the reigning champion noise cancelling headphones, the Bose Quiet Comfort 15? Well, the most obvious comparison is the Plane Quiet headphones cost only $100 (or less) rather than the $300 that Bose demands from you. In most other respects, the Bose headphones are better, but do you really want to spend three times as much for only a little more?
