Fragile

  • Conclusion: As noise cancelling headphones they are awesome. Unfortunately, the second time I went to use them the right side ear piece was broke. I would recommend buying them.

  • Summary: Works well. Good though not complete noise suppression. Good sound. Recharging cable replacing normal cable for listening is a bit of a nuisance.

  • Summary: Fantastic. Only pblm: they're smaller than I thought; so using them for a long time becomes uncomfy.

good value portable

  • Summary: Good sound, though bass is a little light, but well defined. not quite up to Bose standards though much cheaper. You have to be careful with the folding parts which look a bit fragile. The noise cancelling is fine for most situations, trains, planes and automobiles etc.

Noise cancelling really works

  • Summary: Bought these in preparation fro a long haul flight. Have used them at work in large open plan office and they kill the general background noise well. Comfortable to wear for several hours. Music OK when traveling on buses/trains where noise reduction also good.

They do the job

  • Summary: These have excellent noise reduction for the plane, train and also an open plan office. Great fit, not too heavy. Not experienced the noise interference mentioned by others of the cord cable but then again I use them whilst sat rather than on the move.

Amazing sound quality, but some leakage

Tim Dee, Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: Fantastic noise cancelling, and probably the best alternative to the Bose Quiet Comfort 3 as far as noise cancelling headphones go (rechargeable by USB too, beat that Bose), the only downside is that your neighbours probably won't appreciate the music leaking from your headphones.

Overall a great pair of headphones for the price

  • Summary: I've had these earphones now for 5 months and they are still going strong. I've only had to charge them twice so far! I use these about 3 hours a week when commuting on the tube, and so far they have very little wear.

Great product

TechGuy, Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: Nicely balanced sound, noise cancelling very effective and as other reviews suggest, does not take away or add to the sound when listening. Very comfortable. Pouch a tad small and the stainless surfaces do rub against each other when in there. Very pleased with purchase and would do so again.
