Excerpt: It’s been kind of a long wait for the downright sexy Klipsch Mode M40 to show up at our review desk. Klipsch got them out the door to us in relatively short order, but nearly four months of anticipating giving these full-size, active noise-cancelling headphones a proper listen bordered on torturous.
Pros: Excellent noise-cancelling ability, Superb treble, and ample bass, plenty dynamic, Look terrific, lots of extras, Long battery life and plays without battery
Cons: Fit may be too tight for some listeners, Inconsistent midrange response, boxy sound on some material
Excerpt: They come with a straight 3.5mm audio cable, another cable with iPod/iPhone volume and Play/Pause buttons, an airline adaptor and a 7.5mm audio jack adaptor. The iPod/iPhone cable includes a microphone so the M40s can be used to take calls as well. All of this can be easily carried in a solid case that will easily fit into a traveller’s backpack.
