      Hello guys,

      I'm looking for a pair of noise cancelling headphones to plug on my ears when I'm playing in a band and near loud speakers.

      It should come with a neck mount like in the attached picture.

      Without audio input.

      If someone knows of headphones like these, please tell me.

      What are you trying to do? NC headphones don't attenuate sound the same way ear plugs do.

      Hi Greg do you know how much they attenuate noise on average?

      Attenuate the sound while I play in the band.

      The earplugs are not comfortable for me.

      Hi @Candy,

      The attenuation varies by frequency. See below:

      What instrument do you play?

      Do you perform on stage?

      Instruments: Drums & Synthesizer periodically.

      I stopped perform on stage, now want to come again.

      Even playing on drums out of stage without loud speakers sometimes spikes my ears.

      Have you tried an e-drum? That's what I use (I'm also a drummer), obviously with headphones, so I can control the volume I want. You can mix-in the rest of the band, and still control your overall volume.

      I don’t know of any NC headphones with a neck band, but you could get earmuffs with a neck band and wear earphones under them.
