Win Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones Ends 23rd Nov 17

Win Sony Headphones

The first time we found out how great it was to use a pair on a flight was when we flew upper class with Virgin Atlantic. If you fly upper class, you get the use of noise cancelling headphones for free. Noise cancelling headphones are brilliant for drowning out background noise like people talking, and aircraft noise so you can listen to your music or watch the films on the plane with the minimum of disturbance.


Unfortunately, most of the time we fly economy and if you do get a pair of headphones for use on an economy flight they are usually pretty useless and do not block any noise out. So we decided to buy our own noise-cancelling headphones like the ones above. The difference really is incredible and we are so glad we bought them now.

Today on our blog we are giving you a chance to win the exact same headphones we both have – the Sony MDR- ZX110NA RRP £55. These smartphone-enabled headphones have an in-line remote mic, are lightweight and have up to 80 hours of battery life.

Entry is simple through the Gleam application below. Good luck!

    All of it! I love that I can sit back and relax watching movies – it is the start of my holiday and time to get into the mood of relaxing and enjoying myself. Returning home, I am able to reflect on all the fun times we had. Oh and watch movies, movies and more movies uninterrupted!

    It used to be the take-off, but I haven’t been on a plane in 17 years as I got taken really ill on the way back from Jamaica in 2000 & spent my time lying down on a special bed & the crew had to ask the captain if they could open the emergency medical box to try & hydrate me as they had run out of bottled water. I have been nervous about going on a plane since.

    November 16, 2017 at 7:29 pm

    My favourite part of flying is probably stepping off of the plane at the other end…I don’t really enjoy the flight – I’ve had too many very turbulent rides in my time 😉

    Love flying. My most favourite part (although like every bit) is when you are close to landing and you can see land. 🙂 Even enjoyed the 2 hours “sat on the runaway” in Canada a few years ago. We couldn’t see anything as it was pitch black and raining though.
