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.
Summary: These worked really well on the plane and allowed me to watch a film on my tablet without noise from the engine. In fact my partner says they are better than the ones he paid eighty pounds for!
Good sound quality. Could be a little more robust.

Summary: Overall, I am quite happy with the purchase. I use the headphones practically everyday when I commute to work. The noice-cancelling works like a charm and even the most noisy train carriage magically becomes silent when you switch the amp on.
Summary: I bought a pair of these last week, I have never had any noise cancelling headphones and I am not big into music. I bought these based on the whathifi recommendations, like most people I really want the Bose ones but am too tight to pay for them.
Summary: I recently used them on a UK to Australia flight and they worked well for the money. They didn't mask all of the engine noise but they made a noticeable difference - around 80% if I had to estimate.
Summary: I've been using this headset for about a month at the time of writing, and they really are good. They don't cancel out quite as much noise as the Bose QuietPoint 3, but for the price it presents a way better deal.
Summary: Bought these headphones as a christmas present for myself and have used it on a number of occasions both in quiet and very noisy environments (in-flight,house full of noisy toddlers). I am very impressed with the noise canceling abilities leaving a beautifully balanced sound to enjoy.
Summary: I did a lot of research before purchasing a set of noise-cancelling headphones (goes to show these reviews do make a difference!) I have to say, I am very impressed the the quality of these headphones and the ability to provide good noise-cancelling abilities as well as portability.
