oise Canceling Ear Buds -- Will They Drown Out a Screaming Baby on a Plane?

Jump to last reply

Well, my subject line pretty much covers it! I'd love to be able to get some sleep on my upcoming long flights (including Ireland and Hawaii) . . . but I seem to be a screaming baby magnet.

I'm considering buying a pair of noise canceling head phones -- (the kind that fit inside your ear, because I think I'd be able to sleep better without bulky headphones). But the sense I get is that they simply make your music sound better.

I don't necessarily want to listen to music--and if I did, I'd want very soft, instrumental music. I WANT TO SLEEP (and I don't take drugs or drink alcohol--so please don't suggest a sleeping pill).

Any thoughts?
