With seemingly countless noise-canceling headphones on the market, it can be difficult to choose the best pair to make travels more enjoyable. CNET is making the decision a little easier having recently rated Bose QuietComfort 35 as the best overall wireless noise-canceling headphones to date.
The Bose QuietComfort 35 combines top-of-the-line, active, noise-canceling technology with wireless Bluetooth operation in an extra-comfortable fold-up design. The sound is excellent for Bluetooth, and it doubles as a great headset for phone calls. The headphones offer optimum quiet while making music sound better, all without the annoyance of a cord. The headphones also work in wired mode and include cords if the battery dies, ideal for travel if you don’t have access to a power source. QuietComfort batteries last about 20 hours.
The headphones were engineered to travel with impact-resistant materials and corrosion-resistant stainless steel, and the headband is wrapped in Alcantara for an exceptionally comfortable fit. These best-in-class headphones come in around $350. Add them to your gift wish list and enjoy a more peaceful flight next time you travel.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
Scrolling through social media, reading magazines and seeing images online of far-off destinations just feeds the need for travel. Some of us have a healthy dose of wanderlust already, but the added visual reminders can really set plans in motion — or at least plans for a plan.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Nestled in the South Pacific, right about where you might expect to find Skull Island, is French Polynesia and Tahiti. Tahiti was also made into a meme with the recent release of Red Dead Redemption II, as the main characters work tirelessly to make it to the carefree islands.
