While Bose's noise cancelling headphones have proven to be a travel essential for many, they aren't exactly compact and easily packable. Bose finally addresses this with their first noise cancelling (and much more compact) in-ear headphones, the Quietcomfort 20. Available this summer, one of the headphones' big features is an "aware-mode" that trickles in environment noise when you need to pay attention to your surroundings. A slim remote holds the battery that gives you 16 hours of juice and the headphones can still be used without noise-cancelling when the battery runs out. $299, Bose
