Summary: I bought these to replace some previous JVC headphones. I do a lot of international travel, so wanted something small and compact, with good sound quality for long-haul flights. After trying many different travel and sound cancelling headphones, I picked these as the best. They fold up really neatly, into a compact bundle that its into their own soft carry case - ideal for slipping into a bag or briefcase. Sound is deep, warm and truly excellent.
Summary: Husband loves them - he is quite fussy when it comes to headphones and speakers so I was pleased he was so happy, Uses at the gym and seems satisfied with the fit and the level of noise cancelling. More importantly he says the sound quality is great and better than the previous sony noise cancelling headphones.
Summary: I read that they were the best cheapest alternative if you can't afford Bose and I was very impressed. You can still hear the plane engines and underground train but anything I am listening to or watching on a plane or train is now thoroughly enjoyed, without any hinderance of outside noise whatsoever.
Summary: These headphones are brilliant, I use them every day, their sound cancellation is perfect for drowning out the sound of bus engines, I have yet to use them on an airplane. Well worth the money. They muffle low voices, but not high ones- that's not a big issue though.
Summary: I bought these headphones to wear on plane journeys in order to listen to music on my Ipod. They fitted comfortably on my ears and the sound quality was good with good stereo separation. The retractable lead is an excellent idea because it stops the lead getting knotted. The noise cancelling works well when switched on in the plane, it reduces thd background engine noise considerably making listening to quiet sections of music a more enjoyable experience.
Summary: Have now been using these for a few weeks on frequent flights on a turboprop plane - and the noise cancelling does what it is supposed to do! Sound quality across the frequency range is very good and headphones sit comfortably on the ears. Retracting lead is also very useful - partial retraction of lead especially useful when using the headphones while working on a computer. At £45 these are fantastic value.
