Summary: This is my first pair of noise canceling headphones so I don't have much to compare them to.
What I do know is that I wore these for two 14-hour flights on a C-17 cargo plane, and two 2-hour flights on a C-130 cargo plane.
Summary: These headphones were a great choice! From my perspective, all positives and no negatives. I almost purchased the Bose headphones at more than three times the price I paid for the Panasonic product but I'm sure glad I didn't!
Summary: These even make low quality encoded mp3s sound very clean and rich (*>128kbps). Great value for just about any audio lover. If you travel a lot these are perfect. I have tried BO$E's noise canceling headphones and they are flimsy junk and don't even sound close to these and lack tons of features.
Pros: SOUND! Such rich, deep bass. These headphones can really bring out your music. Sound is so clear and clean. COMFORT! These are easily the most comfortable cans I've ever owned. TRUE NOISE CANCELING! Putting these on with N.C. turned off with no music at all will cancel a bit of noise. Turn it on ...
Summary: Even without music turned on, I like these headphones on the airplane, just to reduce the noise level. The airplane adapter plug worked swell, but I didn't care for the quality of the sound of airline's music. At least it allowed me to listen to the audio for the on-board movie.
Pros: Tried it on an airplane, and it worked quite well. Putting the headphones on reduced the higher-pitched ambient noise level a lot. Turning the NR on, the low-pitch hum of the engines nearly disappeared. I could actually hear my music's treble and bass fairly clear. I was duly impressed.
Cons: I couldn't hear the flight attendant; that's bad if she's cute, right?
Summary: I was minutes away from buying a BOSE noise canceling headset and then decided to take the plunge buying this instead. I have been pleasantly surprised with the quality and bought another set as a gift for a relative. Works brilliantly well on airplanes, drowning out the drone of the jet engines!
Summary: Great Review. The lowest price found on the net. More than 50% saved on the final price. Delivered quickly. The noise cancelling system works very well. When activated, you're completely isolated from outside.
Summary: These are my first noise cancelling headphones, and I must say I am very satisfied with this product, considering its price. They are very comfortable to wear, you can keep them several hours without feeling any pressure on your ears.
Summary: I bought these headphones mainly for listening to music and movies on aeroplanes (and occasionally trains). I'm very very pleased with them. It's not until you filter out the background noise that you realise just how much of it there was.
