Compact and lightweight, won't break the bank. Good Value!

  • Summary: I saw these at the duty free in the airport and decided to look into them after I got back home. I was initally a bit apprhensive about buying these but I'm glad I took the plunge as they are certainly good and not as flimsy as some people say the are.

The good - good sound reproduction is terrific

Mr Michael Clive Gibson, Amazon
27 December 2014
  • Summary: The good - good sound reproduction is terrific. Noise cancelling is quite good for this price point. The bad - there is a serious design flaw with these headphones. The battery pack for the noise cancelling circuitry sits about 1 foot up the chord from the headphone jack (which used to plug into a...

OK - but uncomfortable

Alan George "AlanG", Amazon

  • Summary: They are very good at noise cancelling be it on a plane, in the car or on a train. The issue I have, and perhaps it is me, is that they are very uncomfortable. After 45 mins, that is enough and I have to take them off.

Sadly a real disappointment

Jo Bunker, Amazon
7 September 2014
  • Summary: Having read so many reviews I really thought these headphones would work for me. They were to replace a JVC HA-NC250 headphones in which the noise cancelling had become intermittent. I wanted to try another brand, hoping for a longer life to the headphones.

Great value for low price

Joris Lammers, Amazon
24 June 2014
  • Summary: I'm a sporadic airplane traveller that did not want to spend the money on the excellent Bose QuietComfort NC headphones. Instead, these Audio Technica NC headphones are everything I looked for: small (easy to carry on the plane), lightweight, decent NC and fair price.

Ineffective

Richard FFord, Amazon
9 June 2014
  • Summary: Anti-noise (or noise cancellation) is used in military headphones (for aircraft etc.) Theirs works, hopefully. This example does not. I tested it in front of a television - made little detectable difference. Waste of money - I sent it back

Average

Ronan Sheehy, Amazon
2 April 2014
  • Summary: They worked well at first however they didn't last long as the quality wasn't as high as the price tag on this item. I would only recommend if you are extremely careful with them as they are delicate.

Good value for money. Recommend.

zlatibor1963, Ebay
4 March 2014
  • Summary: I wanted noise canceling headphones to use when flying and didn't want to spend a fortune. I can't compare it with others (as I didn't try any), but these are working fine. I was skeptical about the the size that sits on top of ear rather than surrounding it, but it is OK.
