Good engineering, excellent build quality, and superior sonic performance makes them a better alternative to the noise-cancelling models from Beats or even our beloved...
Conclusion: The Polk Audio UltraFocus 8000 headphones feature better-than-average noise cancellation and powerful audio performance in a very comfortable design.
Pros: Powerful audio performance with deep bass and no distortion at top volumes. Active and passive noise cancellation. Quite comfortable. Detachable cable, plethora of adapters add value. On-ear Apple remote control and microphone for iOS devices, phone calls.
Cons: Doesn't output audio in passive mode. Noise cancellation adds audible hiss. Uses AAA batteries rather than a rechargeable option.

Pros: Absolutely superb audio performance, Effective active noise cancellation and passive isolation, Extremely comfortable for long hauls
Cons: On-ear controls are nifty but require a bit of practice, Won't work at all without the noise cancellation, or without batteries
Summary: I n today’s world, especially in Mumbai, where everything produces noise and absolutely no care is taken to reduce it, portable entertainment manufacturers are the ones left to finding the solutions.
Excerpt: There’s been an explosion of options in the headphone world of late. It’s not that long ago that you pretty much bought Sennheiser for audio quality and Bose for noise- cancelling (NC) models, but now every man and his dog are making headphones and earphones.
