Able Planet Clear Harmony NC200 headphones offer noise canceling on a budget

Frequent fliers on a budget might want to consider the Able Planet NC200 Clear Harmony headphones for their comfort, but serious connoisseurs will be unimpressed by the lackluster sound and questionable build quality.

Flying the friendly skies has sure gotten a lot more enjoyable with the advent of portable media players, but frequent fliers realize it takes more than a decent MP3 player to deal with nuisance-ridden travel. A good pair of sound-isolating earbuds or noise-cancelling headphones can do wonders when it comes to escaping into your own world of personal entertainment.

Of course, active noise-canceling sets can cost a pretty penny, which is where the Able Planet Clear Harmony NC200 headphones come in. The pair is sold on for around $60--a palatable price if we ever saw one. You'll sacrifice top-notch sound and build quality, but the portability and comfort may make it worthwhile for some.
