I'm wondering why planes do not allow noise Cancelling headphones at any stage, and get restricted between take off and landing on Qantas. Air NZ allows them at any stage, and have stated this on their website; I can't post the link (haven't submitted 10 posts yet), but if you go to the australian website, the use /electronic-equipment you will see it.
I'm hoping that someone from Qantas can answer this.
This is the link to the NZ site:
Electronic Equipment - Travelling - Air*New*Zealand - Australia Site
It clearly states usable at any time.
The link to the QF equivalent:
Personal headphones used onboard for Inflight Entertainment
If connected to the IFE NC can be used at any time. If not then can only be used after take off until prep for landing:

Qantas want passengers to be able to hear crew announcements on arrival and departure. Seems reasonable to me.If connected to the IFE NC can be used at any time. If not then can only be used after take off until prep for landing:
although last week on a re-fitted 737 (with in seat IFE) i heard one of the FA's saying you could use your own headsets as it could short it out - never heard that one before and i am sure that is incorrect info. i had mine plugged in and it kept working.
I love my QC15 but the problem with plugging in to the IFE systems is when an announcement does come on they are incredibly loud despite the volume being turned down, to the point they hurt your ears from the volume. Others found this? And you get little warning they are about to make an announcement.
