Good sound quality weak noise cancellation

Qifeng W., Newegg
17 July 2012
  • Pros: The headphone has good build quality and reasonable good sound quality. The noise cancellation works on low frequency noise, but it cannot block people's talk.
  • Cons: Noise cancellation feature is weak.

Not impressed

Jamin M., Newegg
15 July 2012
  • Summary: Got it on what was apparently clearance sale, and I'm glad I didn't pay a dollar more. I hardly ever use them thanks to the aforementioned noise.
  • Pros: Relatively comfortable, work to some extent.
  • Cons: Active noise canceling adds a hissing noise, not static really, but a very noticeable and ruinous noise for someone who wants to hear nothing but music.

Great alternative to the bulky over ear headphone

Kenneth N., Newegg
4 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this because some time my Audiotechnica noise canceling headphone get in the way and some times hot. These are small and light but do not cancel noise as much as the over ear headphone but I already expected that.
  • Pros: Smaller, light, great quality
  • Cons: does not cancel as much as the over ears headphone but that is expected, the wires are not detachable so if damage you can't replace it

Warranty Info...

James S., Newegg
4 July 2012
  • Summary: Everybody is different in terms of fit and preference- for me though, I really like the sound and fit of these (with or W/O the noise cancelling turned on). I prefer a moderately heavy bass with good mids and highs that are not overpowering to the point of being shrill and "hissy" (w/o equalization). These fill the bill quite nicely. I must admit, now that I have heard these, I would be tempted to pay full price, but the 90 day warranty would make me nervous.
  • Pros: Nice balanced sound. Comfortable. Noise cancelling works well for mid/low freqs. Good as normal buds (w/o NC turned on). Monitor button to cut sound and NC (to hear somebody).
  • Cons: 90 Day Warranty per Pioneer Customer Support.

Good quality

Bradley W., Newegg
11 May 2012
  • Summary: Do not use noise cancelling in quiet environments since you hear the white noise.
  • Pros: Very clear sound compared to cheaper brands. Isolates most sounds even without noise cancelling. Long cable. Noise cancelling works in constant loud environments.
  • Cons: The battery compartment is placed in a none optimal location. It will hang unless you clip it to your clothing.

Very Impressed

Clint R., Newegg
11 May 2012
  • Summary: Amazing sound quakity for the price, add to that anc and you have one hell of a deal. Sound compares favorably wwith my S4's and my Sennheiser iem's.
  • Pros: Noise cancellation was much better than I had anticipated. Extremely comfortable. Got them for $35 with an eggsaver deal, much better sound quality for that price lin addition to having anc included also.
  • Cons: Minor point, I would have preferred if the battery compartment/control was located at the end of the cable, more towards the source so you might be able to put it in your pocket along with your audio device. Definitely not worth deducting an egg over though.

User Review

adam a., Newegg
24 January 2012
  • Pros: These work great, bought for use on planes and in server room at work. In both situations they do their job just as expected.
  • Cons: Not the greatest sound quality, then again they are small in ear canal buds and were quite cheap for active noise cancelling so I can't complain.
