Summary: Comfortable fit, come with nice carrying case. I am extremely sound sensitive and wear these at work to help block out distracting noises. I like that they are able to cancel some background noise while still able to hear some speech. In a perfect world they would have bluetooth capabilities rather than wired, but I don't use them frequently for anything other than noise canceling.
Summary: 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. The sound is good and clean. I much prefer these that I picked up for far less than the Bose that everyone told me get.
Summary: 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. That narrowed the field significantly, but cost remained a factor, and most of the offerings of note are somewhat expensive.
Pros: Good sound, Great noise cancellation
Cons: Bass And Treble Humps, Huge, Lightweight Build, No Replaceable Cushions
Summary: Comfortable with a good cushion seal around the ear. Good noise suppression, particularly good on trains and aeroplanes where you can really notice the difference. Excellent sound quality - bright and with presence even with the noise cancelling on. Can be used without turning them on. I like the ability to remove the cable so you can use them for sleeping on aeroplanes. Personally, I'd like to see them with Bluetooth.
Great headphones, but just short of being excellent

Summary: Bought these at the beginning of 2013 and have used at home, walking in the street, on the tube, train and bus, as well as on aeroplanes. Pros: - Very comfortable, with soft memory foam ear pieces. - Lightweight, so doesn't feel like you are wearing large over the ear headphones. - You can listen to music without the use of the battery, a key reason why I bought the ATH-ANC9s (surprising that not more brands offer this functionality!
Summary: Honestly, when it comes to comfort, build quality and noise cancellation - there isn't that much between the Bose QC15 headphones (Colleague who sits next to me has them) in terms of effectiveness. Where these cans set themselves apart is in flexibility and sounds quality. Firstly, you have 3 cancellation modes which is a nice touch, I won't go through them as its in the product description, suffice to say they are pretty good and do what they say on the tin.
Summary: Le son est très bon, la réduction de bruit fonctionne très bien. Le câble "standard", et la possibilité de couper la réduction de bruit pour écouter la musique sont de gros plus par rapport à son équivalent chez Bose.
