Can't drown out coworkers without them getting peeved

William W., Newegg
19 August 2013
  • Summary: While I liked the ability to change the wire connector, I hated the sound when I first turned it on. On further inspection, I realized it needed a battery. If you tend to keep a battery charger around, I suppose it's not that big a deal for many, but the one and only reason I got these was to drown...
  • Pros: replaceable audio wire (since that's what breaks most of the time anyway) decent sound decent fit
  • Cons: requires a battery to have any kind of decent sound sound bleeds out REALLY bad

Nicholas G., Newegg

  • Summary: Great for gaming/music!
  • Pros: The sound quality is extraordinary! I haven't heard a dirty sound yet!
  • Cons: The noise-cancelling can indeed get a bit annoying but I would argue that the noise is easily ignored.

Great Headphones!

Eugene Y., Newegg
30 August 2012
  • Summary: Unfortunately, replacement ear cup pads don't seem to be available.
  • Pros: The noise cancelling works really well. Well padded, very comfortable. The inline volume control is a nice feature as is the detachable cord from the headphones. Yes there is a hiss sound if you're not listing to anything and have the noise cancelling feature turned on. But once you turn on any m...
  • Cons: None.

Equal to or better than Bose

Ron W., Newegg
19 August 2012
  • Summary: I came across these at Costco next to some Bose headphones and a boombox booming across the aisle. The AblePlant phoned shut down the boombox noise like an iron trap. The music came though sweet and clear, an easy match for the Bose phones--at a third of the Bose price.
  • Pros: Great noise cancellation Excellent range with little distortion Collapable Comfortable Usess standard battery
  • Cons: Cord is too short

NC200 - Bass that Thumps

matt m., Newegg
8 October 2009
  • Summary: Try listening to Jay Z/ Alicia Keys song Empire State of Mind, if you really want to hear the power of these headphones. Im telling you: They hit. And they dont cost hundreds of dollars. Im happy to have found this hidden treasure.
  • Pros: The noise cancellation on these headphones is pretty amazing - I have a home studio where I produce music for upcoming artists. Its important to isolate all the noise from around you when recording so that you can clearly hear the beats you have to hit. I also use the same set of headphones for p...
  • Cons: I only wish that these had an automatic shut-off on the noise cancel. Im finding that no one remembers to switch em off, so I have to keep throwing in new batteries. No biggie.

Awesome Headphones!!

Kyle F., Newegg
25 December 2008
  • Pros: The headphones are super comfortable, sound awesome, and cancel noise great! While the noise canceling is not 100%, it drowns out surrounding sound really well. They are also really light. Overall, they are perfect for my needs.
  • Cons: None at all!

The Noise Canceling is HARMFUL!!!!!!

Kim N., Newegg
20 December 2008
  • Summary: It has been one day since i have owned these and I do not think that I can justify owning them even to use test them in the long run.
  • Pros: -Comfortable- The padding is awesome both around the ears and on the top for the head. -Volume control is a useful detail -Folding design is useful -price is decent
  • Cons: -Average quality sound- compared to other headphones of the same style and price -Design does not provide noise canceling- with this style of headphones with the cushion and everything it DOES NOT block out any noise with its cushioning and design like other headphones do -----*Noise canceling de...
