Excerpt: Got this to use in a noisy area with the iPad Air. Works great. I have an older pair at home that I have used for the past 8 years without problem. I use them when I mow the lawn and they work great.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Excerpt: This headphone is sufficiently quiet for me. I can listen music in the metro without been too disturbed by the ambiant noise. This is usefull to avoid putting up the sound level. The inconveniant is the fact we receive some radio channel when there is no input sound.
Excerpt: I have not traveled with the headphones yet, but they seem to do all I have been looking for to date. I hope they do cancel the ambient noise and engine noise in an airplane like I think they will. They are light, compact, comfortable and seem to deliver good sound from my recorded music.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Excellent Alternative for Bose Quiet Comfort 15 or 3
31 March 2013
Summary: My wife asked for the Bose Quiet Comfort 15 for her birthday. I'd never heard a pair of active noise cancelling headphones but we travel a lot and the drone of jet engines is a nice thing to escape so I was curious. When I received it, I opened i up and tested it out.
Pros: + Great sound, + Noise canceling is excellent, + High quality construction, + All you need accessories included, + Case is very durable
Cons: - They make my ears sweat, - Headphones are not very convenient to transport because they are so big
Summary: I've tried several noise cancelling headphones - these seem to offer the best balance of noise cancellation with awareness of one's surroundings. I personally do not want a headphone that will completely eliminate external sounds - I want to know if someone is trying to get my attention, but I also...
Pros: Noise cancellation is excellent for removing aircraft engine sound, mutes but does not eliminate voice sound
Cons: These won't eliminate all external sound - they simply eliminate more constant sounds, like jet engines. People trying to get your attention will be able to get your attention.
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.
