Sound was great but not a durable design

RonA, Crutchfield
28 April 2013
  • Summary: These headphones delivered the sound quality and noise cancelling as advertised. I particularly liked the rechargeable feature but the design of the plastic piece that connects the ear cup to the headband is poor. This plastic piece simply snapped while I was wearing it on a flight. The Crutchfield support team was great and facilitated the return and replacement with another brand. Dissapointed with the product but very satisfied with Crutchfield.

Noise canceling weak

KarlL, Crutchfield
20 June 2012
  • Summary: Nice enough headphones. But for the money, I would have expected noise canceling beyond reducing backround hiss. There was no noticeable reduction in noise from others' speech or music playing. These were bought after reading many glowing online reviews, but I thought they performed substantially less than the price would have led one to expect. I returned mine after a week trying them in various situations.
  • Pros: Good sound, comfortable, not off-putting appearance.
  • Cons: High price (yes, I think this price is high for headphones even though there are some astronomically priced ones out there), weak noise canceling performance.

  • Excerpt: Perfektně detailní zvuk. Výhodou je dobíjení přes USB a to, že fungují i vybité (bez potlačení hluku, samozřejmě). Tím, že nezakrývají celé ucho bohužel "prosakuje" více hluku než u uzavřených sluchátek. Dodávaný kabel je dobrý, ale mohl by být delší. Celkově jsem spokojen.

Heikko rakenne

JKKKKK, Verkkokauppa
3 January 2014
  • Summary: Itselle kävi samalla tavalla, kuin JJJJ(montako niitä nyt oli..?)T:lle, eli kuuloke hajosi nivelen kohdalta. Muovi halkesi ja metallinen sarana tuli ulos lokerostaan. Todella heppoisa rakenne tämän hintaluokan kuulokkeessa, eikä sovellu sen takia suunniteltuun käyttöönsä.
