Excerpt: I've already passed the advertised battery life and they are still working. I will switch to rechargeable batteries when the one that came with it expires.
Pros: I use a treadmill for an hour each morning. With a regular headphone, I had to keep the volume very high to hear over the noise of the treadmill. With these noise-cancelling headphones, I was able to lower the volume of the TV from about 56-60 all the way down to 20.
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.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound
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.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Lightweight, Makes Me Look Good Too
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.
Excerpt: I use these headphones at every opportunity I can, which usually means in the office or at home. I listen to indie/alternative rock and EDM, and I think these headphones are versatile enough to provide me with the sound I'm looking for in both genres.
Excerpt: Very comfortable. They goes over entire ear, so they block large chunk of noise just by that. NC is not intrusive. Compare to headphones from company which "makes better sound through marketing" ATH sounds superbly. If you do not want to sacrifice sound quality for NC, this is perfect choice.
