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.
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.
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!
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.
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 get the tube to work each day so noise cancellation is important to me and these headphones lower the background rumble of the...
