Sure they cost $300 before tax, but if you are looking to be able to completely ignore the world around you as well as listening to your favourite sounds then the Phiaton PS 300 Noise Cancelling headphones are what you need.  Sure the economy might be suffering from a horrible disease, it won’t matter so much if you can’t hear the constant bad news.  Head on over to ExtremeTech to see how these headphones became their favourites.

“Phiaton. It’s a name unfamiliar to a lot of people who should be swimming in its amazing product line. Phiaton makes high-end, high-quality headsets, and with its latest offering it’s outdone itself by many orders of magnitude. The PS 300 NC noise cancelling headset is a modern wonder.

We’ll be honest. Our computer, with its four heavy-duty 120mm fans, sounds like an air conditioner. While wearing the PS 300 NC with its optional noise cancellation circuit turned on, the computer is barely audible. While reviewing this thing, members of the family had to make extra effort to get our attention. The world simply goes away.”
