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
Summary: The sound of these is amazing. But, my ears are a little larger than average and these headphones hurt when I use them for a extended periods. The noise canceling works well. With it turned on and you have music in the headphones, you can't hear any other noises. When music is not playing in the headphones you can still hear stuff going on around you, but it's drastically reduced.
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.
