Noise-Canceling Headphones

Frequent travelers quickly learn that time spent on a plane can be agonizing. Noise-canceling headphones block out the crying baby three rows back and the chatty fellow sitting next to you, giving you some time to yourself. There are plenty to choose from, but two of the best are the QuietComfort 3 line from Bose, retailing for up to $350 — or, if you'd prefer to spend less, Logitech's Ultimate Ears 600 Noise-Isolating Earphones, which run about $100.
