The easiest way to ruin a red-eye flight across continents and oceans is to be seated next to a noisy neighbor, in front of a crying baby or adjacent to a loud snorer. Noise-cancelling headphones have become ubiquitous in the travel scene as travelers seek more peaceful ways to zone out during long flights. One such example is a leading set of headphones from Sony that take peace and quiet a few steps further than the standard models.


Sony’s WH1000XM3  noise-cancelling headphones employ Ambient Sound control and high-resolution technology to block out sound. The wireless headset drapes over the head and lasts for up to 30 hours. When the battery dies, it can be recharged in just 10 minutes.


Various extra features of the headphones include Sense Engine smart listening that lets the wearer tune in and out of audio, touch-sensor controls to adjust the audio coming through the speakers, a voice assistant that can shut off audio and answer phone calls and Quick Attention Mode that switches off media to allow human conversations.


These Sony headphones, available in silver or black, can be stored in its own travel-friendly carrying case and can be purchased on Sony’s website or through most other online retailers for about $350. While this may seem like a splurge for headphones, you can’t put a price tag on peace.

Ristorante Consorzio, Turin, Italy

Ristorante Consorzio is almost as famous for its selection of fine cheeses as its delicious wines. After one evening dining here I understand why. The selections of both are extensive and top-notch, and feature a variety of each from around the country.

Work and Play in Italy

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.
