Summary: I dumped my JVC HANC100 Noise Cancelling Headphones (Not Recommended at all) and bought these Audio Technica ATH-ANC23. I shopped around and found that Amazon had the best price (great shipping service and excellent customer care.) I am writing this review after using these Audio Technica ATH-ANC23 during a 16 hour flight to Australia. Here is the rundown: 1.
Summary: Really excellent for travel, as they're quite comfortable and have excellent noise cancellation for the price. My one complaint is that the cable is a bit short, and makes a good deal of noise. Furthermore, the rubbery plastic coating makes awful tangles in your pocket. Otherwise a fantastic IEM, especially considering the $50 price tag on Amazon right now.
Pros: Very good noise cancellation, relatively little background hiss, great sound.
Cons: Bad microphonics, and the cable has a mind of its own.
Summary: Recently purchased a Skullcandy Titan after researching in various websites. The sound was very good, but ear started to hurt and when exercising had to continually move them back to the right position. I bought the AT after reading some of the reviews, paid a little more, but I tell you, they sound great! I didn't even have to change the ear pieces, they fit perfectly. The NC is excellent! I listen to a lot of contemporary jazz, smooth, fusion, etc.
Summary: these have been great ear phones. i work in a lab so we have a constant hum from fans, pumps and instruments. i was amazed at how much sound these cancelled out. i don't have to crank up the volume just to hear the music. do they block 90% as claimed...i don't know, but they work great. they come with different sized pieces to customize the fit which was nice. i've used them on flights and won't fly without them again.
Summary: I have tried to listen to movies/music on planes in the past without much success. These seem to do exactly what they're suppose to do. Since I would never buy a large over-the-ear set, these are just what the doctor ordered and at a great price.
Summary: The audio performance is great. Volume level good when watching movie. ANC works well. Able to cut out large portion of the simulated airplane cabin noise. This should be good for air travel use.
Summary: I purchased this product for the primary purpose of listening to my television and stereo. Having a problem with neighbors in a thin-walled uninsulated apartment, their constant loud music, games and television are a nuisance I cannot seem to remedy. Which is why I shopped for a pair of these noise-cancelling headphones which have a tiny microphone for listening to all background noises and configuring a blocking sound to vanquish such.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
