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 don't often write reviews, but these headphones are AWESOME. The sound canceling is great already without activating the active mode ( I use them like this most of the time and usually don't here people coming in my back). When activated, such as in a train, you're back to silence again... The battery lasts very long, and charges pretty fast. Nothing bad to say.

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: 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.
Solid, well designed, sound great.. and £90 cheaper than QC15

Summary: These are better than the QC15s in several ways. A headphone snapped off my pair of QC15s. So I replaced with these. They're classy, metal, solid. And, to me, they sound great. I know about treble, bass, and loudness. I don't know about top heavy or other nuanced terminology. Importantly, these are rechargeable. The QC15s ate batteries, as if you're busy, like me, you put them down and forget to turn the noise cancelling function off. Bingo.
Summary: Man kann nicht viel sagen, weil man einfach beeindruckt ist. Fangen wir bei der Qualität des Kopfhörers an sich an: Die Materialien sind hochwertig und sehr gut verarbeitet. Selbst das sparsam verwendete Plastik an der Außenseite der Hörmuscheln wirkt hochwertig und elegant. Alles in allem sieht der Kopfhörer wertig aus, was man auch an seinem Eigengewicht merkt.
