Only like 7 months late with a NC headphone note, but here it is: I prefer Sony’s NC tech to Bose, and I own the newest Bose and Sony sets. Sony is quite a bit better on the plane, vacuuming…well, for every case so far.
Barstein, sounds like they wouldn’t fit your use-case, but I have 5 different bluetooth headphones, and my Samsung Level-U (I think that’s the name) Pro ones have just become my default, to the point that they’re the only ones I use for calls. Mainly because I can wear them around my neck without them getting all tangled, as they have those magnetic ear buds that naturally clamp together when not in use. I can mostly wear them underneath my collared shirts without people taking notice.
