There's another new pair of noise-canceling headphones to add to the mix. Panasonic's RP-HC700 headphones don't exactly have the coolest name but they do cancel noise by 92 percent.
Panasonic dubs their latest audio headset as "the perfect travel companion." I will admit, having a pair of noise-canceling headphones on a plane, especially long-haul flights, does make the experience of flying more bearable. And for $199.99, this pair isn't terribly priced - so long as it does what it says.
Powered by a single AAA battery, the RP-HC700 should reduce how much you have to suffer near loud drones, like those come from an old AC unit or a plane engine. Or you can just leave the noise-canceling function switched on without any music playing at all if you just want some much needed peace and quiet.
The Panasonic RP-HC700 headphones are available now and include a carrying case in the box.
