Summary: I have had these headphones now for 4 months now. I am really satisfied. I must say that I was very close to buying one of those Bose QC15 but then eventually decided on this one and boy I am glad I did that !
Pros: - Passive noise cancellation when the battery dies. For me this feature was perfect. I did not prefer another gadget which needs charging !, - Noise Cancellation : Very very decent and all that I wanted., - Design : Really a head turner.
Cons: - what I can think of is probably after listening almost 5-7 hours continuously, one might feel a little bit pressure on the ears but I'd guess it would be also be dependent on the music that you hear & the volume levels as well.

Summary: I got the bad boys for the looks and also because I have been a fan of HK for a long time... True these are not Bose QC15, but then every one knows that... I have had the pleasure of using the HK NC for over a month now and I am impressed with the quality (both sound & build). I have worn them on the roads, on the train, on the tube and in the house with the noise cancellation ON, and it has been "Legen-" (wait for it) "-Dary"...
Summary: Firstly, important to note that I am not a "headphone geek". Have been perfectly happy with £10 headphones for a while...but felt like treating myself. Wish I'd gone for the Bose! Remember that comment, because you'll see it again at the end of this review. Pro's: Look the part Comfortable Good all-round sound quality Cons: No way near bass-heavy enough They creak constantly The chord rustles loudly on your body As I said, there's zero denying these look awesome.
Summary: I am very impressed with these headphones could sound quality, does not distort at higher levels and good amount of bass. Nice comfortable fit on ears, feel secure not like it will fall off if you turn head quickly and comes with another size band so you can adjust according to your preference . Even without the noise cancellation on these headphones isolate outside noise nicely but all the better with the cancellation on.
Summary: The good: Unique design; excellent fit and finish; impressive sound quality for a noise-canceling headphones; built-in rechargeable battery to power the noise cancellation; fold flat (a nice carrying case is included); work without the noise cancellation on (when the battery dies, they keep playing); include Apple-friendly inline remote and microphone.
Summary: I bought these for my son for Christmas - he wanted noise cancelling headphones as he travels by train and plane so much. I did some research and so did he and these looked good. He reports they are better than good, they are fantastic and the bonus is they still give great sound even if the battery runs out, unlike some of their expensive competitors.
Summary: They look great. They are integrated with the iphone so you can adjust volume, skip tracks, pause, even answer calls. They charge via USB and still work, albeit without the noise cancelling function, when the batteries are flat. They sound fantastic... for a while. But there is clearly a manufacturers fault. I've had two pairs now, and in both cases the left channel has developed problems with high frequencies within six months of new.
