Excerpt: Here’s the kicker — they’re only $350. Yes, I know, “ ONLY $350? ” But that’s actually a very good price for noise-canceling travel headphones this nice. It’s the same price as the mega-popular Bose QuietComfort 3s , but these sound better and have a sturdier build.
Pros: Handsome design. Strong noise canceling with only a dribble of audio artifacts. Two lengths of detachable braided cable, one with an in-line remote. Fantastic sound in passive mode, too.
Cons: On-ear design leads to fatigue after a couple of hours, and plastic parts inside the earcups can dig into your ears. Metal headband is sharp and snaggy. They don’t stay on your head as well as over-the-ears.
