Summary: I purchased this headphone set for my son at a local electronics store, and am sad to report that they charged me $69.99 for a rather disappointing set of headphones. With the first use, the headphones seemed to work well, blocking out most ambient noise in the room, but as soon as we boarded a plane, my son plugged the headphones into his IPOD, and reported that there was a constant buzzing/static noise coming through the headphones that got worse by turning the sound...
Summary: I bought this product that it would have good quality, but no. There is a lot of background noise, which probably means poor materials. Also the noise canceling is weak. I can still hear a lot of noise in the background. I should have shelled out for a more expensive one.
Summary: These headphones are lightweight and comfortable, and the cord is long enough, and they came with an airplane adapter included. These are the good things I can say.
Unfortunately, the bad outweighs the good.
The cord is very thin and flimsy, and I'm afraid it would not last very long. I bought these at a store and they are going back. The noise cancellation does not work well.
Summary: I didn't notice a difference between puting them on and putting my hands over my ears.
Want one for cutting out/down the background noise of the TV so I can concentrate on reading. Don't want to listen to music, want to hear nothing/little so I can concentrate on what I'm doing, so I never tried listening to music through them.
Summary: Here is my review on these inexpensive headphones after one 3 hour flight:
- Quality build and good materials
- Very comfortable over the ear design with large earcups. I'm sure you can use them for 10+ hours without pain, since there is no pressure on the ears.
- Folds to a compact size and stores in an included leatherette bag
- Sound quality seems good although I'm not an audiophile to make a good judgement on this
- Only little hissing when...
