Solitude Noise Cancelling Headphones. What makes these interesting is that they were developed by a pilot, Captain David Dillinger. Apparently he got fed up with hearing gun shots in his ears….what? Ah, wrong Dillinger. OK, well the good captain is a bit of an engineering geek, so he ups and creates these things which boast ‘18 dBS of Active Noise Cancellation – the highest of any headphone on the market.’ Which sounds good. Or not. Geddit? $199.00.
Detachable cord lets you use Solitude as a noise reduction headphone only — without the annoyance of a dangling cord. Or plug it into your iPod or airline sound system (all cords and adaptors included) — generous 40 mm Rare Earth Neodymium drivers provide full-frequency response, while masking annoying engine cacophony. Completely self-contained, with volume control and noise reduction switch right on the earpiece.
