Inexpensive earphone for airplane?

We're looking for recommendations of inexpensive earphones we can use when we watch in-flight movies. Last time we used the ones the crew handed out and all we could gear was the engine noise.

We travel maybe once a year so we're hoping there's something inexpensive out there that would do.

Thanks for any advice,


P.S. We found Monoprice 109927 on Amazon, and they are inexpensive and have giod reviews...

Your choice looks reasonable...

Will you need an adapter?

I'll be back later...

I have been doing a lot more traveling since we have a plant in the UK and also opening a office in Germany. My wife treated me to the AKG K490 headphones. Might be a bit out of your price range but they are really comfortable to wear, for long plane rides, and sound great to me. No plane noise!!
