Excerpt: Very good quality, I like them a lot. Even my 19 yr old daughter who only uses ear buds, turned a new leaf. She says she doesn't like "cheap" headphones. Now she always wanting to use mine. As, for noise cancelling, use only for "trains and planes". Otherwise, turn up the music, they will do some "noise cancelling.
Excerpt: Comfortable fit Good sound. Noise canceling? Not quite sure about that one. I was very excited when we went on vacation to bring these headphones on the plane To help keep out the sound of the engine. NOT! Even with a fresh battery they did Very little. But for every day ,Yes they're pretty good.
Excerpt: The key thing to note about noise cancellation is to understand how it works. Most noise cancellation systems are tuned to cancel out droning, repetitive white noise such as caused by trains and planes. They don't cancel out too many other sounds that you might actually want to hear.
Excerpt: I would call these noise "REDUCING", not noise canceling headphones. But they are really comfortable, reasonably priced, and work well. The cable is a tad bit short, but one can always purchase a replacement.I use these to reduce the amount of noise in my workplace while I grade audio assignments. The sound quality is really quite transparent, neither adding or taking away characteristics inherent in the sound.
Summary: I picked these up from here for about 110.00 total, well worth it. At 195 i'd cough up the extra dollars for something that fits better/more comfortably.
Pros: Great sound, Good noise cancelling. Even without noise cancelling on they still sound pretty good. Noise cancelling is robust, took them on a plane and they really helped with the ambient plane noises.
Cons: Ear Fatigue, a bit of cut out if jostling too much with noise cancelling on. My major gripe is that the pieces don't fit over your ears and rather press into them which can become uncomfortable after extended listening. In addition, I found that If I shake them around too much with noise cancelling on (example walking) that the sound cuts out periodically sometimes.
Excerpt: My husband had a pair and loved them. Used them for plane rides and just listening to music over his computer while the TV was on in the room. Said they cut the back ground noise just as well as my Bose did. Then the new puppy got hold of them. Pooch will be gifting him the new ones for X-Mas. Happy holidays.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: The sound on these headphones are great, I just wish that they were either wireless or bluetooth. I am currently using them on my computer and they are comfortable for hours and do a great job with canceling out the noise from others.
Excerpt: I bought these phones to listen to music and podcasts on my iPhone while train commuting. It's a terrific set of headphones with good clear bass response. The noise-cancelling can be turned on and off with a switch located on one earpiece. While it doesn't completely cancel out the noise (trains can be really noisy!), it does a good enough job that one can easily concentrate on the audio and 'lose' the extraneous sounds.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight
