Good value for money. Recommend.

  • 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. They are comfortable and I have not much objections. I would prefer hard case, but travel bag works fine as well.

  • Summary: It doesn't compare with the Bose QC - but, then, neither does the price. Good enough to listen to movies on plane and keep out the aircraft noise.

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. Battery consumption is not too bad: 1 lasts roughly a month. Sound quality is good, too. The only downside: they feel a bit 'light weight' and fragile..

  • 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!

  • 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. I was a bit unsure when I got these as while they are well made they dont look much, also when I first put them on and hit the noise off button I could hear a hiss and I thought this was a bit rubbish.

Value for money is excellent

  • 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. Apart from that, it comes with an airplane socket and battery life tends to be a few days if left on.

Good Value

  • 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. All in all they're well worth the price though I have never tested more expensive headphones against them.

Very decent noise cancellation

  • 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. The cushions are very soft and mold quite well to the ears without feeling much pressure. I can easily wear these for several hours.

Great product

  • 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. With little hair on top I would have appreciated a bit more padding but nevertheless: Great value for the price.

  • Excerpt: Блок шумоподавления не только собственно давит шумы, но и выступает усилителем и улучшателем звука, тем самым пытаясь скрыть средней паршивости динамики, которым красная цена в базарный день 500 рублей.
  • Pros: + Неплохое шумоподавление. Хотя о тишине говорить не приходится ни в метро, ни в электричке, тем не менее с включённым шумодавом заметно комфортнее. + Лёгкие и удобные (основная причина почему брал именно их).
  • Cons: - Посредственный звук, обязательно нужен эквалайзер в плеере чтобы хоть как-то звучали. - Звучание сильно разное при включенном и выключенном шумоподавлении. - Как всегда, провод рядом с джеком при ношении в кармане быстро ломается, причём он несъёмный (намертво вделан в блок шумоподавления).
