I'm going to be traveling for 3 months in Europe, and I will be taking the train through about 15 different countries, even to far off places like Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and Greece. My point is - I will be spending a lot of time on trains. Therefore I want some really good earbuds to listen to both podcasts and a couple of audiobooks that I've downloaded. Currently I just have the regular earbuds that come with iPhone, and they're not very comfy for my ears at least :)
What earbuds would you recommend for train traveling in Europe? I suppose some trains will be rather noisy, so I'm thinking that I might need some noise canceling ones. The Bose QuietComfort 20 seems to be one of the best earbuds choices in terms of noise cancellation according to different sites like http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2423090,00.asp and http://www.headphonesunboxed.com/top-10-earbuds/. Only thing is that it's rather pricey. Any other earbuds you've used for travel that you'd recommend?
