I do a fair bit of long-haul air travel. I'd like to get a decent pair of headphones or earphones or whatever that I can use on the plane.

Desirable features:

  • Small (I'm traveling)
  • Robust (I'm traveling)
  • Block out or cancel noise (I'm traveling economy)
  • Comfortable (I'm traveling economy for about thirty hours door-to-door)
  • Work without power source (thirty hours, dammit)
  • Plug into those two-prong things they have in planes
  • Can be used as a skype headset (this is a bit of a long shot)

Any recommendations?
