Might as well have speakers in the room!

Christopher Brown, Amazon
31 May 2012
  • 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.

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.

The battery case spoils this

MR LEE WILLIAMS, Amazon
31 May 2011
  • 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!

They do about 10% maybe 20% not 90% noise reduction.

Alex Biggs, Amazon
31 May 2011
  • Summary: These do not block out 90% of the noise at all. They do about 10% maybe 20%. The sound is average and hisses a bit when you switch it on. There must be better ones out there.

Don't believe the hype

flowa, Amazon
31 May 2011
  • 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.

Weak Noise cancelling

Mr S F Gibson, Amazon
31 May 2011
  • 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.

I expected better, considering the price

F. Eagles, Amazon
31 May 2011
  • 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...

Not great I'm afraid.

Alex Biggs, Amazon
31 May 2011
  • 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.
