Sennheiser CXC 700 premium traveller?s headphones featuring NoiseGard are a must.  Besides a highly advanced acoustic system, compatible with in-flight entertainment systems and  MP3 players, iPods, iPhones, and iPads, the CXC 700 headphones offer a unique and traveller-friendly ?TalkThrough? function that mutes the audio input. This lets you listen comfortably to the flight attendant, the inflight announcements, your seatmate or the guy beside you on the lift ? all without removing the ear canal phones. Volume, NoiseGard and TalkThrough controls can be operated with one hand, even in low lighting. A single AAA battery provides up to 16 hours of continuous listening so your sound system won?t die on long trips or during a full day on the hill. Includes a sleek storage case and handy cleaning tool.
