Able Planet True Fidelity NC300B Headphones
15 April 2010
Summary: If you’re looking for a personal listening solution that eliminate background noise, we’ve found in-ear monitors that physically occlude sound—versus masking it with noise of their own—to be a far superior solution. And while you can turn off the JC300B’s active noise cancellation, you lose a lot of volume without gaining any improvement in audio fidelity. In short, we’ve heard plenty of comparably priced headphones that deliver much better performance.
Excerpt: It's always nice to review a product that performs exactly as advertised, and the NC300B headphones not only lived up to, but exceeded my expectations. The more I used them, the more I liked them.It's always nice to review a product that performs exactly as advertised, and the NC300B headphones not only lived up to, but exceeded my expectations.

Able Planet True Fidelity Active Noise Canceling Headphone Review
20 November 2009
Excerpt: I write this review as I fly at 35,000 feet in the air.Â I thought this would be the ideal place to review and test the noise-canceling feature of theÂ Able Planet True Fidelity Active Noise Canceling Headphones (NC300B).Â Technology used in high quality hearing aids is implemented in these headphones to enhance sounds and reduce external noise. The result is a full rich sound that is pleasure to my ears, especially in an airplaneâ€™s cabin.
Excerpt: Colorado-based manufacturer Able Planet specializes in audio devices designed for people intent on preserving their hearing. To that end, their new True Fidelity PS500MM multimedia stereo headphones are geared specifically for gamers who want to be able to hear those crafty Call of Duty players sneaking up behind them, but would rather not blow out their eardrums with explosive machine gun fire the rest of the time.
Pros: Terrific detail at low levels; virtually no distortion at higher volume; surprisingly comfy; mic captures spoken word with a warm, earthy quality
