wish list - Travel headphones
Written by Oryx
High-end headphones for the ultimate listening experience wherever you are.
PSB M4U 2 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones
With ingenious ‘RoomFeel’ technology, the M4U 2 brings the experience of listening to high-end HiFi loudspeakers into headphones. While the active and active noise cancellation uses a sophisticated built-in amplifier, there’s also the option to use an external amplifier in passive mode, and even when the batteries run out the M4Us continue to deliver amazing sound. The added option of connecting the headphones to two devices (one of which can be a phone, as there’s a built-in microphone) makes for a very worthy travel companion.
Bose Quest Comfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones
A series of microphones inside and outside the earcups measure unwanted sounds and send these measurements to a digital electronic chip that precisely calculates the appropriate noise cancellation signal. A single AAA battery allows for up to 35 hours of use, while an in-line remote and microphone allow for use with smartphones. For travel, the Quest Comfort 25s also fold into the smallest carrying case available in the industry.
Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2
These sleek over-ear beauties feature a cutting-edge new drive unit that delivers an open, spacious sound with precise bass that’s powerful yet not overpowering. Crafted from supple sheep’s leather, the specially designed ear pads minimise acoustic impedance, and also make these the most comfortable headphones to fall asleep with.
What makes these headphones truly special is the fact that, for every pair sold, LSTN helps restore hearing to a person in need. Troubadours are crafted with reclaimed wood (beech, zebra, ebony, or cherry) and come with a handy drawstring case. An in-line microphone makes them ideal for use with any smartphone.
