Excerpt: Very good noise reduction. Folding feature enables them to easily fit in a computer case. Very comfortable and good sound quality. I prefer clear trebles rather tha booming base, and these deliver. Great headphones at a fraction of what Bose would cost with nearly the same performance. PS, these replaced an identical set that I had. They broke on an overnight flight to Europewhen I fell asleep with them on. So they are a bit fragile.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Excerpt: A bit bulkier than my old Senheisers but very serviceable. More compact than the Boise headphones that I see other people with on planes. The retractable cord is a plus. Overall good noise canceling on the plane.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Got theses for my partner to use with her iPad mini, and can report that they sound really good and feel very comfortable on-ear. My one concern is the retractable wire for plugging into the iPad headphone socket, which is super thin. About half the diameter of the same wire used on my own JVC headphones. Hopefully, with gentle treatment, it will last well enough. But it does seem flimsy.
Summary: These are good headphones. The retracting cable is ideal when you're cramped in an airplane seat. Good battery life and good noise reduction for the price. Recessed on/off button means you are unlikely to turn them on by mistake (has happened on my old units and find the battery is flat as the flight starts) which is a good feature.
Summary: Thought this could do with a review from a less casual listener. I do a fair bit of sound editing as part of my career so I'm fairly picky when it comes to sound equipment. My general impression is that for the money these are a solid purchase, *but*, they do need a fair bit of tweaking with EQ to get the best out of them in terms of sound quality. Noise Cancelling: People expect far too much from noise-cancelling headphones.
Summary: I bought these a couple of years ago at the full price of about £80. I've always been an audiophile but always lacked the budget to get top of the range stuff. To me, these headphones still have that top of the line quality and comfort to a degree but their cheaper price tag makes them a solid buy. The wire is thin but very strong. I've dropped phones and the headphones before and nothing came of it at all.
Summary: I was looking for a pair of NC headphones as I had a lot of airline flights coming up. Since these were reduced and had generally good reviews I thought I'd give them a shot. They are comfy to wear and around the house are excellent. A few of the other reviews say the noise cancelling is rubbish. I wouldn't say its rubbish but full over-ear headphones will obviously be better.
