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. I also had used the Bose whenever I flew business class on American, so I have some comparison.The Audio-Technica headphones look and feel very much like the Bose unit.
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. I like that the audio cord connects on both the device and the headset, so the cord can be replaced if necessary. Also it comes with a nice case, and adapters for other devices types.
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.
Excerpt: I have been pleasantly surprised by this product. I did a fair amount of research comparing the AT product with Bose and Sennheiser noise cancelling offerings. The price for the AT (thanks to a very generous Staples discount) was less than 1/2 of comparable price for Bose and there is no way that the sound quality is twice as good with the Bose. Also many people comment on the flimsy construction of the Bose..
Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Stylish
Excerpt: I bought these for my graduate student son while working in a very small office with two other people. He wanted to block out others in the office and traffic sounds. He said they work great and was the best gift he could have gotten.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Lightweight
