I bought a pair of B&W PX 'phones six years ago to listen to music whilst flying.
Whilst they cancel the rumble of the aircraft engines effectively, the SQ falls off a cliff.
As an improvement, I’ve been considering changing to a pair of Sony WH1000XM5 cans.
I’m assuming that technology has progressed enough since I bought the PX’s to make it worthwile?
Any Sony users around to advise?
Sony and Bose both sell noise-cancelling headphones, which you may want to investigate.
I have no personal experience of them.
Take a look at John Darko’s YouTube channel. He’s made some really good videos on ANC headphones with side by side comparisons.
When I fly I now use Apple AirPods Pro, the ANC is the best I have ever used and the sound quality is exceptional for the price.
I have the previous model, sent them “free” with my last phone upgrade (Xperia). I love them, battery lasts ages, sound is fine, noise cancelling does a great job. I don’t fly much these days, but this summer the family holiday involved one. They were great on the plane too.
The Sony ones are pretty good. Had a quick listen to the Focal Bathys in the local hi-fi shop this weekend and they excellent. Better than I expected.
Finally went for the Sennheiser Momentum 4’s.
