Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones

We’ve all been there, those long haul flights with the noise of the engines. Those long train journeys with the clack of the track and roar of the engine. Even those car journeys where all you can hear is the road noise. The solution? Noise cancelling headphones, they promise peace, but do they work? Short answer yes. The long answer? The rest of this review!
“Tune into a universe of music with the Philips SHB9850NC headphones. Boasting up to 99% noise cancellation, they are your ultimate travel companion. Enjoy music easily with smart touch control and one-tap NFC pairing with Bluetooth devices.” – Philips
London to Taiwan and Back
I got this headset in my hands the day before a flight to Taiwan for Computex 2017. With a total of 9 hours on the train and over 30 hours of flying there and back. I didn’t even have time to photograph this sample before I left, I opened the box, charged it, and left. Overall, I have battle-tested the headset thoroughly.
