Excerpt: These did help reduce the lower frequencies on a transatlantic flight. They fit on the ear quite well and were not too uncomfortable. But I think that the Bose Noise cancellation is better although I only tried it in store, but for the price I am happy with these.
Excerpt: great sound but VERY uncomfortable if you wear glasses or wear them for long period. I wish I had returned them; but too late now. If earpieces fit AROUND the outer ear would be better, As it is they smash your outer ear against you head and cause a great deal of pain.
Excerpt: I get this product to listen to my Android phone on the road to work. It has a good balanced frequency response. Noise reduction function is OK. It was defined as 85% noise reduction. That's quite acceptable for comfort. However, there is one important thing I have to mention.
Excerpt: Maybe I was expecting too much. I was disappointed with the noise canceling. I thought it would block out much more than it did. Not great for airline travel all it did was just slightly reduce the sounds.
Excerpt: Music is very good with noise cancelling on. Does not completely block ambient noise. Bought for college student to use while studying in dorm common room. Does not totally block voices when cancelling is turned on. Disappointed, as I understood it to be highly rated for that purpose.
Excerpt: I bought these for use on the plane while traveling. I have experience with the earlier model of Bose Quiet Comfort 15's and thought they were amazing. I didn't want to spend 300 dollars so I read reviews and opted for the JVCs for best all around features.
Summary: Haven't had an opportunity to try these on a turbo-prop plane for a thorough work out of the noise canceling feature.
Pros: Lightweight, and the noise canceling feature works adequately for office environments. Comes with a nice, compact travel case so your cans don't get mashed in your bag.
Cons: Definitely not circumaural, unless you have ears the size of a newborn babe (big minus for me). The cable is both short and flimsy, which is ok if you're traveling, but for home/office it just doesn't cut it. Make sure to pick up a 3-6 foot extender for practical use.
Summary: Good but not great - the noise cancelling is just OK and the actual ear pads are quite small (No, I don't have massive ears). At this price, I did expect a far better noise cancelling operation. Without the NC turned on, there is little or no sense of NC.
Would recommend these "as they are" howvever don't expect miricles in the noise cancellation effect.

Summary: I bought these headphones for one purpose only and that is for "dampening" the noise on aircraft. You would be surprised how noisy they are nowadays (mainly people i think). However i have not had the chance to try them in this area as yet.
Summary: As good as I thought they might be, but a little large for my head so dont feel too secure. And although took out most of nearby noise of cellophane unwrapping and chomping from nearby passengers could still hear it. A good buy.
