Defective unit? Had to return it.

  • Excerpt: Main problem was a low but audible background hiss when the noise reduction circuit was activated. Noise reduction also was not as effective as expected. Perhaps a defective unit?
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use

Do not buy these under any circumstance

  • Summary: The noise cancelling on these Audio_Technica Quiet Point ATH-NAC7b headphones is indeed excellent, but there is a reason why they are so cheap. They suffer from RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) when in noise cancelling mode.
  • Pros: Great noice cancelling and good quality sound. When you turn on the noice cancelling you can hear the background noise dissapear. And then the RFI kicks in and you have to turn noise cancelling off!
  • Cons: Suffers very badly from Radio Frequency Interference., Suffer from presure build up.

  • Cons: So I previously had a pair of noise canceling headphones of another brand I bought on another site. Come to find out, they had a manufacturing defect that caused the plastic on the headband to crack with use over time (reason they were on sale). I disappointed and took over a year to make that in...

  • Summary: I returned these headphones with regret. They are not as good as the Bose and they have the same flimsy feel of the Bose, but with using my phone as the sound source a lot of cellular digital noise piped into the headset. And for this reason I returned the headphones
