I had Bose, got stolen on a plane, Sony MDR-NC500D cans now for travel, wired cause no wireless NC then... Bose excels in noise canceling and not too shabby in performance For this use. If I had to quickly, right now, buy NC cans for travel I would get the QC 35's. Tried them extensivly in a Bose mall outlet store.... to the point of annoyance to the sales guy, while waiting for some Chinese customers shopping for bargains, I had tons of time... But your question was the reason (excuse) for me to look because the damn wires on a plane are a pain-in-the-ass, but would want the option to plug in as well for a bit better quality, why not. Will try to find out what Seinheisser puts in for SoC's, Aptx HD is where you want to go.
