Excerpt: I edit videos in an office environment with a noisy A/C unit. These noise cancelling headphones do a great job of blocking out the rest of the world and allow me to focus on my work. While they are a bit bass heavy, the sound is quite clear and they have a great dynamic range.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight
Excerpt: While these may be one of the top noise cancelling headphones based on reviews online, their sound quality is nothing exceptional. Based on my own tests, they sound about the same as a quality pair of earbuds that come bundled with a decent cell phone.
Pros: Good noise cancelling for low frequencies works well Solid construction Sound quality is OK: the sound is pleasant and not fatiguing but it is not neutral and natural (sound quality is "boosted" with exaggerated lows, somewhat weak highs)
Cons: Bulky On the ear design (around the ear/bigger cups would be nicer) Cord too short White noise (hiss) in powered mode Noise cancellation for mid and high frequencies is perfect
Summary: The flimsy cord is the only conceivable setback of these headphones, in all other respects they are top notch. Get these and skip the Blose
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 accessor...
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 se...
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.
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
Excerpt: I've used this only on the airplane so far, but it has worked well. It lifts from my ears sometimes, if I tip my head and I hear outside sounds when this happens. There is some noise bleed at louder volume levels, but nothing bad for a plane ride that already has plenty of noise from the engines.
Excerpt: I started looking at these after years of looking at Bose, which seemed to have the best performance for value. However, the sound from the Bose units was, in a word, horrible. In addition, I was looking for something that went around my ears, instead of on top of them.
Pros: Great noise cancellation, Good sound
Cons: Lightweight Build, No Replaceable Cushions, Bass And Treble Humps, Huge
Excerpt: Overall, this is a nicely made product, well packaged and easy to use. I like the idea of being able to chose different levels of noise reduction based on my location, though I'm not sure I could identify a great deal of difference between the three modes in my limited use thus far, but changing...
Pros: Big Case-lots Of Storage, Well Made, Lightweight, quite comfy
Excerpt: I WEAR THEM EVERY HOUR I AM AWAKE DUE HEARING DAMAGE FROM SERVING IN THE U.S. AIR FORCE DURING THE VIET NAM CONFLICT. I COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT WEARING THEM. I WORKED UNDER THE ENGINES WHILE THEY RUNNING AT CLOSE TO TAKEOFF POWER. MOST OF ALL THEY HELP ME COPE WITH MY HEARING INJURIES AND DISORDERS.
Pros: Larger Over The Ear Pads, More Versatile Than Anc7b, I Own Both
