Definitely ideal for travel. Lightweight, no chords bugging you and sound quality is great. very comfortable and easy to store and very durable. The only downside is the fact that these have a small blue light on the right side that is actually quite bright so if you are on a plane in the dark it might really annoy your neighbor. That is the only thing I did not like, but overall great headphones and for the price these are top of the line.
