Whether for commuting or for long-distance travels, headphones are an essential source of music and entertainment. Smartphones have made it easier to store huge numbers of music and movies, but without travel headphones that could cancel out sound while providing a maximum definition of music, travel entertainment would be lax. Here are a few worth trying out.

You have just made the perfect soundtrack to your summer but the right headphones should deliver the playlist straight to your ears and into your heart. According to Travel and Leisure, the Bose QuietComfort 20 is one of the best ways to reduce the noise coming into your ears when you listen to music. The tips are made of gentle silicon that is more comfortable than typical in-ear monitors.

Beats by Dr. Dre studio is a bit expensive but their convenience is in its noise-cancelling features coupled with its wireless Bluetooth connection to one's smartphone. It needs to be recharged every now and then, but it would remain comfortable and less tangled especially if you can wear it around your neck.

Forbes recommends the Audio-Technica 33iS QuietPoint as they are affordable yet they deliver an amazing sound. The price of the A-T 33iS is about average and it may underperform against its other in-ear competitors from the same brand, but of course, Bose is the only master of noise canceling headphones highlighting musical details perfectly. However, the A-T 33iS works for those traveling with music on a budget and those who need something clearer than the cheapest headphones out there.

Phiaton are noise-cancelling earbuds made for traveling and even for running given its ear clip and earbud design. Phiaton's focus has always been about innovation and of course, reducing the noise from the outside world. The sound from these headphones is detailed with enough bass to cancel out the noise from the world of music you are about to partake.

Over-ear headphones, with headbands and messy cords, are still great for travel especially if you intend to take them out only in transportation or in the hotel. Audio-Technica's ATH-M40x is well made and has a fair price. Most professional DJs use it but it works best with travel too.
