    We have and LOVE a set of Bose noise cancelling. I can't remember the model but they were in the low $200 range.

    Worth every single cent. I use them for travel, with my laptop at home, and anywhere else I want private sound. :yes:

    We do try to share them, but ermmmm...I end up with them most often. :spring:

    I have also got a set of Bose headphones and they are really,really good. I definitely recommend using them as they do make such a difference by cancelling out the noise. :p015:

    BOSE here for me too!

    I tried other makes but BOSE were the best. I've gone through the version 1s to the Version 2 and a friend has the version 3 and says theyre better again!

    For UK visitors there's a great orlando bose shop in the premium outlets where you can buy them FAR more cheaply than in the UK

    Are they first quality there, Keith? I don't trust those "outlet" places much as often their merchandise is imperfect.

    yep, it's not an "outlet" store, it just happens to be in the outlet mall :) you CAN I believe ask specifically for seconds quality from there and they'll be a bit cheaper, but the standard merchandise is full price, proper quality stuff

    BOSE in the UK is silly money though.

    Think twice the price of the US and you'll be about right
