These have a major flaw and Asus don't want to know

Summary: I decided to give these a go as an introduction to noise cancelling headphones. While sitting in the garden they worked great, for the price I was happy with the effect. A month after buying them I used them on the train for the first time during the morning rush hour and this showed up a major...
Summary: I wanted some noise cancelling headphones, but was not prepared to part with the cash for some Bose. I know that they are a great product and have brilliant sound quality, but for the number of times I use them it was not cost effective. Then I found these on Amazon and what a bargain they are.
Summary: I bought Asus NC1 and found them to be of very poor quality. The product I received was faulty - The left side was not working properly. I also found that when you turn on noise cancellation it produces a hissing noise which was not expected from a noise cancelling product.
Summary: Have a pair of expensive Sony but these knock the spots off them.Would like Bose but in my mind over priced and these are not far off them plus a hell lot cheaper. I wanted these for longhaul flights and the sound quality brilliant PLUS the noise cancelling superb cancelling all aircraft noise.
Good sound quality but noise reduction suffers intereference

Summary: These headphones have a lot going for them, they are lightweight and compact and have a good sound with decent passive background noise reduction. The noise cancelling can be effective but seems prone to electrical interference from devices such as mobile phones or laptops.
Summary: Recently indulging in audio books, but often having trouble listening to them on the noisy underground, I bought these headphones for the "active noise cancelling" feature and have been pleasantly surprised by it's effectiveness.
Summary: I have just come back from a round trip to India and used these in flight. The noise cancelling really does make a difference. I would however make two points: First the quality of the sound is not particularly special. If you want really good quality with great definition look elsewhere.
Summary: Right first things first these are not a £300 set of Bose noise reduction headphones. But pound for pound they punch above their weight. I use them in a noisy office and on the plane and they are excellent. Well made and comfortable.
