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
Excerpt: The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7b QuietPoint Active Noise-cancelling Headphones are just what i needed. I use them for work, mainly for transcribing and translating. The audio file I usually work with are low quality recordings of police interviews and the like. Using traditional earphones or earbuds usually there is about 5% of the recording that is considered inaudible due to background noise or other conditions.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
Excerpt: Not being a music afficianado, I was very hesitant to spend this much money on a pair of headphones! However, I gave in owing to a need/desire to listen to noise-free sound! It works like magic. Very impressed and very happy with my purchase. Just hope it lasts long for all the $$ spent on it.
