http://www.dailysteals.com/ is selling 2 Pack Eco Trends Custom Fit Noise Isolating Earbuds Black & Red for today only (1-24-10) as a daily steal. I thought that was a cool steal to post.
Includes a 1-yr warranty from Sakar.

I saw bose has such ones, and made a crazy lot of publicity.

Does that really work well?

Yes, the Bose ones are very good, I've tried them out a few times and they have excellent noise canceling as well as crystal clear sound. As for these, of course they don't compare to Bose, or any headphones in that range ($200-300), but for this price I don't think you could go wrong. Heck, you could hardly get regular (decent) earphones at this price....

I've bought these kinds of headphones before.  They're a joke compared to Bose.

If you fly a lot it's absolutely worth buying the $300 Bose 15 headphones.  It's kind've like spending money on a good pillow or mattress to sleep on, divide up the cost by the number of times you'll put it to good use and you'll see it's a no-brainer.

To sleep, I lie on the side of my head, so I believe those bose will bother me, right.

I had the QC3 and returned it for the QC15's.  I much preferred the QC15's design over the QC3's, but it's a matter of personal preference.  You feel the QC3's more because it rests on your ear, whereas the QC15's aren't felt as much and don't apply as much pressure to your ears over time.

The QC15's actually block out more noise because they both have the same active noise cancellation, but the QC15's have more passive noise cancellation due to the around-the-ear design.
The other difference is that the QC3's have a rechargeable battery with a life of about 20 hours and the QC15's use a single AAA battery with about a 40 hour battery life.

To sleep, I lie on the side of my head, so I believe those bose will bother me, right.
Try it and find out, I find that I sleep better with them on.  There's a 30 day return policy (90 days with Starwood/Chase Sapphire Preferred)
