Not great I'm afraid.

Alex Biggs, Amazon
10 January 2014
  • Summary: I got these because of the Gadget show review which I obviously trusted. They are okay but they don't cancel out anywhere near the noise they say they do. You are better off getting some outer ear ones, or normal ones as they are just as good, but much more comfortable. I won't believe anything I see on the show now, which is a shame because I did like that show.

Not tight seal

  • Summary: The headphone does not have a tight seal. A cheaper headphone (Sony MDRNC13) had a tighter seal than this headphone.

The battery case spoils this

MR LEE WILLIAMS, Amazon
20 July 2013
  • Summary: Battery case is too big, heavy and cumbersome. Not bad headphones otherwise, though one earphone has stopped working (prob more to do with my man handling and/or it getting tangled or bashed on the battery case!

Weak Noise cancelling

Mr S F Gibson, Amazon
15 July 2013
  • Summary: Noise canceling only removes some low frequency notes, ie any humming, droning etc. You can still hear people talking, doors closing, and your other half snoring :) Also wire between headphones and battery module is too short, i'm just under 6ft and can't stand straight with it clipped to me. Standard sound is good though.

I expected better, considering the price

F. Eagles, Amazon
27 August 2012
  • Summary: These headphones do what they are supposed to, which is playback audio and reduce background noise. However, they are fairly poor at the former and just OK at the latter. I get the tube to work each day so noise cancellation is important to me and these headphones lower the background rumble of the train by around 50% - however, for over £60 I would expect a better job.

Don't believe the hype

flowa, Amazon
8 June 2012
  • Summary: I read all the reviews and thought these would be the ear phones to replace the Sony MDR-NC22's that have been really great for the past 5 years. On first try in the kitchen they didn't block the noise of the washing machine at all. Next day on the tube, minimal reduction compared with the Sony's. These only cancel a very specific frequency - the droning air-con frequency - so they'd be ok on a flight but really not brilliant and definitely not worth the price!

Might as well have speakers in the room!

Christopher Brown, Amazon

  • Summary: My last two sets of earphones have been Shure sound isolating SE210s, which were great but both failed with the same fault (reduced volume in one ear) just outside the two year warranty period. Based on the reliability issues I decided to try the Pioneer SE0NC31C earphones, which have some great reviews on this site. The sound quality of these phones is superb. Low, mid and high end sounds are dealt with equally well and, initially, I was really pleased with them.

Ok, But flawed

Lyndon, Amazon
5 May 2012
  • Summary: The reason I wanted a pair of noise cancelling earphones was because I do a lot of travelling on the trains and tube and although the earphones I have at the moment are good, I still have to turn the volume up quite a lot to drown out any outside noise. Anyway, the reason for choosing these ones was because I had read an excellent review of them on the gadget show website. Great, I thought, if they like them, then they must be good.

Der Klang ist ok, Rauschunterdrückung funktioniert leider so gut wie gar nicht

Rolf B., Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: Hatte mir die Kopfhörer für den täglichen Arbeitsweg im Zug gekauft. Der Klang ist ganz ok. Leider ist die Rauschunterdrückung nicht dazu geeignet, die Umgebungsgeräusche (Handygequatsche etc.) effektiv zu unterdrücken. Ist eines der wenigen Produkte, die ich umgehend zurückgeschickt habe.

störendes Geräusche wenn Handy Netz sucht

cat, Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: wenn das Handy im Funkloch nach einem Netz sucht, dann koppelt es leider in den Kopfhörer oder das Kabel ein und es ist brt..brt..brt.... zu hören (nur wenn die Rauschunterdrückung angeschaltet ist). Dieses brt..brt..brt.... tritt auf einer Zugfahrt leider sehr oft, meines Erachtens ist dieser Kopfhörer für den Zug nicht besonders gut geeignet.
