Summary: Not sure I am going to keep these headphones. Direction said to turn input to lock, but it doesn't lock and often came loose during the flight when I tried to watch a movie. I will continue to play around with these.
Excerpt: Reasonably priced. Work well, definitely reduce noise on aircraft. Frankly, I never realized how noisy it was until I put on and used the headphones. Using alkaline batteries seem to provide good service and lasted through trip both ways to Europe.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound
Excerpt: Sound quality is very good, but ear pads are a bit small and fit on, rather than over, the ears. Adequately comfortable, but larger ear pads would be much more comfortable and also improve sound quality. Head band is adequate, but padding there could also be improved.
Pros: Good Noise Cancelling, Good Value, Great Sound
Excerpt: The stereo sound is actually better than the sound of my Yamaha digital piano. The noise cancelling feature works for some noises, but not for others. The weight of the headphones is a little too heavy and tends to make the top of my head sore if I use them too long; not a big issue. Overall, I'm satisfied with them for the price.
Excerpt: These headphones are great at cancelling out ambient noise. I wore them when placed in the back of a plane near a noisy engine, a crying baby, and an arguing couple - nothing disturbed me! My only complaints are about large case they come in, which didn't fit well in my carry-on bag, and the fact that they get uncomfortable after wearing them for 3 hours (although perhaps that's true of any headphones!). They seem to be better suited for slightly smaller ears than mine.
Excerpt: I purchased these to use when mowing the lawn, so I could listen to the FM radio on my phone, and so that I could hear my phone ring while mowing. The outside noise is muted more than enough to hear the radio. The only weak spot I can see is that the chord between the headset and the phone is pretty flimsy; I hope it holds up. Now I've only had it a couple of months, but is seems to be a good value.
Excerpt: These headphones sound horrible and have terrible sound quality. They do not block outside noise. These normally retail for around $100.00 but were purchased on sales and with some bonus dollars. They aren't even worth that much. DO NOT buy thenm. There are better ear buds out there for less money.
Cons: Poor Sound, Poor Value, Too Much Ambient Noise
