Saying I work in a noisy office is an understatement. In fact, it can get downright loud. When I'm trying to get my "geek on" and focus on my work, I often pop on my iPod and try to tune out the hustle and bustle around me. Until lately, I was using the regular Apple iPod Earphones because they are easy, light and always wrapped around my iPod. I may have been missing out. The Clear Harmony Noise Canceling Headphones from Ableplanet, $299, are an audio dream come true. Sure, they aren't as bling-bling or humongous as some of the other giant DJ headphones we've seen, but they do feature great noise canceling technology, in-line volume control for easy adjustment to safe listening levels and a removable cord.
They work with stereos, computers as well as CD, DVD and MP3 players, but sadly do not work with my new iPhone, which has a recessed headphone port and requires an adapter.
