Summary: For me they are very comfortable and don't irritate my ears like earbuds do . Makes my old music that I transfered from my records sound just as I remembered them from years ago. The quality of my record albums sound clear again which I was unable to hear using other headphones. Subtle background music came in clear. No instrument over powered the others unless orginally in the recording. I love these headphones!!
Excerpt: I bought these headphones for air travel, they work great for noise cancelling on the plane. When you are listening to music or watching a movie, you hear very little white noise in the cabin. As far as the audio quality, they are pretty good, I'm sure you can find better headphones if you want excellent audio quality but my primary goal was the noise cancellation when flying. I will use them from now on whenever I travel or want to listen to music.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: Top-notch in every way. Most comfortable pair of headphones I've ever worn, too. These are excellent at noise cancelling from the moment you place them on your ears, without even turning on the noise-cancelling feature! That's how well they fit and seal out noise. Fabulous sound.
