Excerpt: I bought these because the Staples price was just too good not to try. They will be replacing some Maxell noise cancelling phones I had been using for years. The Maxell were reasonably good at blocking some of the airplane noise and improving the audio.
Excerpt: These headphones were on sale and out of stock online, so had to go to the store to pickup. Was worth it! The sounds is great and the noise reduction appears to work very well. I have not traveled on an airplane yet, but other reviews said they were also good for air travel.
Excerpt: Because my son loves his Audio-Technica ATH-M50 headphones, and after reading a few reviews of the ATH-ANC7b headphones, I thought I would give them a try on a recent trip. While both the noise cancelation and sound were excellent, the fit for me was rather tight - tighter than the M50's.
Excerpt: These headphones are comfortable to wear and easy to operate. The noise cancelling technology effectively blocks outside noise when active. They fold up into their compact carrying case, which makes then convenient for travel or office.
Excerpt: I use these at the gym to listen to podcasts and the noise cancellation feature really works. I compared them to older headphones that didn't fit over the ears very well and I didn't need to raise the volume as much.A little bulky but that's necessary for noise cancellation.
Excerpt: I'm very happy with the noise cancellation and the sound. These headphones do not have an exaggerated bass ( which for me is a good thing). Rich tones throughout the whole range. I bought similar headphones for our two teenagers in an earlier model, and finally treated myself.
