Protect your ears from loud noise the next time you fly
1. Bring earplugs
Earplugs are a great way to protect your hearing, and it’s a nice, soothing way to travel by plane. You can get earplugs at your local drugstore that are made specifically for flying. If you’re unsure about which ones to get, you can find a list of the best earplugs for flying here.
2. Use noise cancelling headphones
Noise cancelling headphones will protect your ears and your hearing, while making your trip more comfortable. With noise cancelling headphones on, you get the added bonus of being able to hear music, radio, video – whatever you’d like while you’re up in the air.
3. Choose an aisle seat close to the nose of the plane
The quietest spot on the plane is the popular front rows, because this is the farthest from the engines. However, you should know that the front galley is usually also where the crew prepares for meals service and chats during the quieter times of the journey. So there may still be some noise – just a different kind of noise. Aisle seats are also several decibels quieter than window seats, so if you’re not excited about the prospect of a view anyway, you should opt for the aisle.
