Excerpt: These are going to save my sanity on an expedition in the arctic circle. I've only had them a short while but I am already pleased with how well they work. They are a bit firm on my ears. I'm hoping that doesn't become a problem. There is a very slight hiss when the Noise reduction is turned on but it is barely audible.
Excerpt: I use it to sleep for its noise cancelling feature since I can't use earplugs. I cannot sleep without them. I use them on planes as well where they improve the quality of travel immensely. Sound quality is good too. The price is good and since I use them every night, I can afford to replace them easily. They do break but I put them through a lot of strain by sleeping with them on.
Pros: Compact, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: Able planet headphone has the best quality sound and perfect to hear any kind of music. Last time i bought for my wife it was wonderful...........love it...... worth to buy this than others headphone.
Excerpt: Nice sound, but low quality. Had one side crack and contacted B&H, but because it was after 30 days, they could do nothing. Then the right earpiece BROKE OFF! I use them everyday, but I take care of my stuff. Not very happy...
Excerpt: Bought these headphones mainly to use on plane rides. Haven't had a chance to use them yet for this purpose, but can tell the noise cancelling feature works well. They fit nicely, and like the way they fold up. Seem sturdy & well built. Only complaint is the sound quality, which is average at best. Expected this for the price. I plan to only use them a few times a year. Price & quality works for me.
Pros: Added features, Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use
Excerpt: The quality was good when using them in a home environmnet. However, I use these headphones for their noise cancelling feature on a bus. During my commute to/from work, the music from my iPod skipped. It is not the iPod; those same songs were fine when played from home. I am deducing that the vibrations from the bus in conjunction with the noise cancelling technology caused the sound to be like continuously riding over RR tracks. I returned this product.
Excerpt: Got these ot watch movies on my IPad on the plane. They worked great. Flight out I was in back and the flight back I sat by the wing. It was so load I could not hear myself think..but when turned on all I heard was the movies. Felt a little pain around the ears, but I think that may go away as I use them more. Great headphones for the price.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: I use these headphones everyday at work. I sit at a desk for most of the day and get easily distracted when others are talking around me especially when I am trying to read or calculate. When I turn on the noise canceling function and then play white noise, I feel like I am by myself and my concentration goes through the roof. : ) I also took it on the plane for my business trip and when I watched a movie, I couldn't hear hardly any of the jet noise.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: Often times when you read these types of reviews, the reader doesn't get the benefit of sizing up the product in a direct comparison to a peer product/competitor. This review will be a little different. My wife and I recently purchased two pairs of noise canceling headphones for use while traveling on planes. My wife purchased Able Planet's NC200 headphones, and I purchased Audio Technica's ANC1 headphones.
