I was shocked what a difference they made. I put on my noise-cancelling headphones as soon as I got on the plane and had the great sound quality I expected to watch a movie. But the bonus is I also felt less stressed without all that ambient noise from the airplane.
And I’m not just talking about the crying babies, the videogamer who doesn’t use earbuds or that chatty couple behind you. During takeoff the noise in an airplane can reach 150 decibels; a loud rock concert is only 120.
