Good headphones for a great price
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I recently purchased these headphones for around ~$50. You have to be willing to shop around, but you should be able to find it for right around that price range. Ok, the price is great, but that's relative to the sound quality and noise canceling features that you get with these headphones. You have to understand that headphones with noise-canceling and great sound quality (like a Bose or Sennheiser) will typically run upwards of $300.
Summary: I bought these for an extended airline flight for my son. When I first received the package, it put in the battery and turned them on. I could barely tell the difference on or off. Once placed in precisely the correct position on the ear, there was a difference, but still not much. I'd pass on these and get the ATH-ANC7s - I have these too and they are great for the price.
Summary: There were were no reviews on the internet of this headset, that's why I decided put this one. I was looking for portable headphones below $100 for my mp3 player (ipod clasic), with sound better than Sennheiser PX 200 (not enough bass). I tried couple of sets: Sennheiser HD25SPII has excellent sound but (for me) has too long cable and is too big to walk around with.
Pros: Well built, pretty comfortable, good noise cancellation, price below $40 with free shipping.
Cons: For some people they may be too tight, but for me were fine. For audiobooks they are OK, but otherwise no. If you care for sound quality I suggest to look for something else. In my opinion, these headphones delivers horrible sound - comparing to - see below.
