When we landed in Zihua, I was oh so happy to be back in sunny Mexico again with the sea to swim in and our cozy hotel to hang in. BUT I spent the next two days in bed with severe migraines which didn't respond as usual to my abortive meds. While, of course, there is no proof, I know that the headphones were the trigger. Sadly, they are now up for sale on Craigslist. I know there are people with severe headaches, migraines, etc. who can use these things just fine without the repercussions that I had. However, if you're thinking about getting a pair and you have chronic headaches, try them out first if possible.
I now use Shure noise-blocking earbuds for my iPod, the same ones my son Ben prefers. He also has migraines, and he rejected the noise-canceling headphones after one try in the airport. He immediately found the background white noise hard to handle. He and I tend to have some of the same triggers.
The pain eased off on the third day, and I finally got to BE on vacation.
