These saved my life.

  • Feb 24, 2009
  • by
Seriously!  Last night while boarding a red eye flight from LAX to JFK, I was right in front of a large man talking very loudly on his cell phone while boarding the flight.  He should of been wearing a tee shirt that said, "I'm sort of a big deal."  You know, he needs to cry out for attention.  I'm tired, I just want to get to my seat and get to work on falling asleep.  I'm thinking to myself, "Oh God, please don't let this clown sit next to me?"  Yeah, it's not the first time God has ignored me. 

The guy sits down next to me, fumbles with his paper, and bags (BARELY fit in overhead), continues current conversation on cell phone...and then takes another.  During this time, I am scrambling to get my Bose Noise Canceling headphones out of my briefcase.  I put them on, pump up the volume to the point that I no longer hear the jackass next to me.  If I would have had to listen to this guy another minute, I would have grabbed his hair with my left hand and pulled his head to my right elbow...at least a few times.

No doubt, I would have been arrested, jailed, and eventually shived.  So, you see, these headphones truly did save my life.  Pick up a pair if you travel more than twice a year, they just might save your life, too.

What did you think of this review?

I wanted to talk to you that whole flight. Now I understand why you were ignoring me.

My computer blew up on me earlier and I need to reinstall it, but haven't gotten admin approval.

I will never fly without them. The noise cancelling technology opens new vistas in air travel.

Don't forget to turn off your headset. And, always keep an extra set of batteries in the case.

I love my Bose Quiet Comfort headphones.  They're enjoyable to listen to and provide incredible sound quality at any time, but when flying, they are a godsend.  With one flick of the on switch, the background noise that you normally find on a plane quickly melts away and you feel like you're in your own little cone of silence.  They allow you to keep your iPod at reasonable volume levels and actually hear your music.       Even better than listening to …

I highly recommend these. Took the red-eye back east and was able to sleep the entire flight. Thanks Bose.

I like to surf, ski, golf, play volleyball - basically anything outdoors. I don't like playing pool, golden tee, or shuffleboard (during the day) in dank bars.
