Excerpt: I use these while playing/recording drums. It is heresy to some to use noise-cancelling headphones while tracking. I don't care. I love these. They isolate me very well from bleed-through from the drums as I'm playing. Through the headphones I hear what's getting to the microphones much better because they isolate so well. And I don't have to turn up the volume on the headphones near as much because they cancel out the external drum noise so well.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound
Summary: The flimsy cord is the only conceivable setback of these headphones, in all other respects they are top notch.
Pros: -Great noise cancelling, audio quality, and bass -Very nice build quality considering the all-plastic construction -Comfortable! I have worn these non-stop on over a dozen 8-10 hour flights and never had any aches or strains. I also have a big head (7-1/2) -Nice carrying case and all the accessories you'd ever need are included -Good battery life, maybe 20-24 hours on regular alkalines
Cons: -The included cords are kind of squirrely and have too much memory. -The mic cord was $20 to replace from the factory after my cat ate it, but as a major plus the accessories include the non-mic cord as a spare so if you're on a trip there's a backup -The power switch is loose so I have had to send them in for a warranty repair. Funcionality wasn't impacted but for a $200+ set of headphones it should be right.
Excerpt: These Audio-Technica work better than the Bose. We have 3 loud rotory drive chillers in our power plant. We bought the Bose noise cancelling head phones 8 years ago. Now we have the Audio-Technica noise cancelling head phones, and there is a difference. Also the price is a whole lot less than the Bose.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Lightweight, Makes Me Look Good Too
Excerpt: I bought it right before a 5-hour flight. I wore it all along and they fit comfortably. I did feel the urge to lift them from time to time to refresh my ears, but I guess that is normal when you enclose them with something for that long. The sound was really good, though I am not an expert in the field. The one thing I can definitively say is that the investment was well worth it.
Excerpt: I am no audiophile so take this for what it's worth. I was using UE6000s, which are great-sounding but the NC is poor. These destroy the UEs in NC and might sound a little better (wider soundstage). They do not match Bose in NC. The case is large and I'm unsure I would carry-on such large item on a flight just for the NC.
Excerpt: The noise cancelling works okay, but on a recent flight I could still hear people. When I put my ipod on and the noise cancelling, it was amazing, I heard nothing. These are also great for making phone calls with, the sound is great.
Pros: Extremely comfortable, Great carrying case, Music Quality Excellent
Cons: Little bulky, Sound Heard Externally, Noise Cancelling Okay, Can Still Hear People
