    Hey hows it going, i am looking for the best wireless headphones for an Ipad 2 that i can use on an airplane. They have to be noise canceling and as comfortable as possible since i will wear them for 8 hours or so, price is no object. Thank you for your help i appreciate it.

    I just ordered the nokia bh-905 and from what I've read theyre a pretty good wireless headset (they also come with a wire to allow for wired connection that provides even better sound quality). They also have a feature called "active noise cancellation" and it's supposed to cancel out a lot of outside noise like noise from airplane rides, car rides and background city noise.

    Hey thanks for the reply, i was thinking maybe a bluetooth headphones would be better, just not sure how long the battery lasts on them compared to regular batteries.

    Music (Bluetooth): 25 h
    Talk (Bluetooth, with active noise cancellation): 15 h
    Music (Bluetooth, with active noise cancellation): 16 h
    Music (Wired, with active noise cancellation): 40 h
    Hands-free phone calls and music listening (without active noise cancellation) possible even with empty battery (wired connection)

    These specs are from the nokia website. Yeah these are Bluetooth and I think there's an upgraded version called the bh 905i. Both can be found on amazon and eBay

    I just found out that you cant use wireless headphones on an airplane, they don't allow it =/. Thank you though appreciate the help. Also any idea on a good surge protector which i can use on a cruise ship/hotel, that is small in size, does the ipad usb charger have built in surge protection? Thank you again.

    Actually, you CAN use Bluetooth devices on most airlines. You just need to check with the airline. Here's British Airways policy on this, for example. As with all airlines, there is a restriction on using any electronic device during takeoff and landing, but in-flight use is permitted.

    There was also a very good post from an experienced airline pilot about this, in which he explained why Bluetooth could not possibly interfere with any of an aircraft's systems. I'll try to find the post later and put a link to it here.

    The best BT headphones I have found are the Sennheiser MM-550 ones. The battery is a rechargeable one that lasts about 8 hours when using BT, so you might want to consider carrying a spare battery with you, or a portable power supply to recharge it.

    Headphones

    I'd be careful if you want to use these on an aircraft. Wifi is still a big no no with many airlines, and if you have to put your ipad into "Aircraft" mode, a wired set would be better:)
