American Airlines is running a holiday shopping promotion that allows you to purchase either the Bose QC3 or QC2 noise cancelling headphones and get credited $4 for every $1 spent. These are the ubiquitous headphones you see on all the guys up in business class. Said to the best the in the industry, I haven’t tried them myself, but I know that Bose makes quality speakers so I have high hopes. Compact and easy to carry they fold flat and fit easily in your carry on. I’d definitely advise you to check it out.
