Summary: The noise cancelling generally works well, but towards the end of the battery life, the quality does severely suffer. For some reason, the plating on the headphone jack has become worn down (I guess) as it can take a while to manouvre the cord to the sound is good.
Excerpt: I absolutely love headphones. I have about 30 of them at home, mostly I just use the for testings and resell them but sometimes I keep the ones which stands out. And this was the case of this Panasonic RP-HC700 Noise Cancelling. I bought them back in 2012 for something over £100.
Summary: The headphones themselves seem to be pretty good but within a few weeks, the plug connecting the headphones to anything else broke in a misshap which didn't involve much force. It seems that the socket was fragile (far too fragile for a reasonably pricey headphones).
Excerpt: It was a couple of years ago when my husband declared that he wanted to buy a good pair of headphones. We do a fair amount of travelling and I think he thought that they would come in handy on those occasions when we wanted to relax on a flight and zone out the noise from other travellers.
Pros: Good quality sound, silence background noises, comfy fit
Acceptable noise isolation, but the sound quality isn't amazing!

Summary: I've owned a variety of different headphones (grado, ultimate ears etc) over the years and was interested in trying these out for the noise cancelling feature. The product claims that noise is reduced by upto 92%, so I thought it would be interesting to test their capabilities.
Summary: I've been using these headphones for 4 years, with only minor problems. I originally purchased them for air travel, where they perform admirably. I've been using them daily in the office for the passed 2 years, the noise cancelling isn't much use in this environment but the isolation of the ear cups...
Summary: Pretty good. I bought these for a long flight and they make a big difference. They actually do cancel noise. The sound output is fine. They are a tad uncomfortable after a couple of hours but that may just be because I have big ears.
Summary: Apart from one thing, I recommend these. They are well constructed, the sound quality is decent and the noise cancelling is excellent. The noise cancelling requires batteries which don't last long but you can use them without the noise cancelling and make sure you have batteries when you are going...

Summary: These ear phones have a good sound. I travel on planes a lot and the noise cancelling feature work well. Overall I am very pleased with the product....except that when the cable stops working it is very difficult to get a replacement.
Summary: These Panasonic HC700 headphones made a recent trip to New Zealand so much more bearable. As I had never owned a pair before, I only had reviews and recommendations to help me make my choice. I couldn't afford those from Bose and I didn't want anything from the cheaper end of the market.
