Help me out here.

I see people using those noise cancelling Bluetooth headphones on flights and don't understand how they're working with the Bluetooth turned off?

I'm flying loads for work and want to get some but don't know if that's defying the point of them if devices need to be in airplane mode?

Am I being a Gabby about this?

Nobody does flight mode anymore ffs

Just leave it on, checks have gone slack.

This is another reason not to fly.

It's because the microphone plays a negative Soundwave to the ambient noise in your ear, cancelling the noise. Pretty handy on trains and planes.

Anyway, I've got these and they're very good.

They're about £50 cheaper in most places.

Thanks, but I meant how are they connected via Bluetooth on a plane as I thought it had to be turned off.

Or is it via a USB/charging dongle?

Definitely going to buy some.

I've got Beltron ones I use for work, cheap cheerful and do the job.

Got some serious Bowers and Wilkins bins for home, which are brilliant, but not cheap

The noise cancelation is in the microphone part of the headphones.

Most Bluetooth headphones come with a wire too incase the battery runs out, however they are fine over Bluetooth on a plane.

If you have yer Spotify/whatever settings set to high quality, yer can live without adding about with DAC. Depending on the quality of yer players. No point paying high end prices and then playing heavily compressed strrams
