Noise Cancelling Headphones

Ponzi purchased the world’s most expensive noise cancelling headphones from Bose the other day… which cost as much as her second iPod (actually, third – if you want to count the Shuffle). I gotta admit, they’re quite comfortable on the ears. I’ll have to give ’em a good spin to decide if I’m going to pick up a pair, too:

QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones deliver acclaimed Bose performance in a new on-ear design. Just slip them on and experience the difference our proprietary technologies make. Enjoy full-spectrum noise reduction that fades background distractions. Rich, clear audio that reveals nuances you might have missed. And a compact, lightweight, easy fit for hours of comfortable listening.

I hate earphones – I don’t care how much “better” they are. When I was a kid, my mom told me never to stick anything in my ears – especially if it does nothing but collect wax and make my ear canal sore.
