Summary: Bought these on a recent wootoff because I wanted some travel headphones that were lighter and easier to carry with me than the Bose. The sound quality of the PXC 150 earphones is very good, but not excellent. The noise canceling capability is good and under some situations, very good. But using an on the ear design for noise cancelation is doomed to failure under high noise conditions.
Summary: Overall quite an excellent overall performance! Used in on long flights and they noise-cancellation in very good. 2xAAA last for more then 20hrs, although once the red light starts blinking the performance is slightly decreased. Used them in a car, 1.9L TDI continuous churning at 160km/h.. makes a car quiet as a Rolls or a Caddy. Once you take them off; sounds like you are in a middle of a busy machine shop. Therefore, Great automotive noise-cancellation as well.
very decent noise cancelling, prone to interference

Summary: bought this headphone for clearance price tested it right away on subway ride, and heard the instant noise cancelling effect, the roaring noise is blocked out, but you may feel some pressure in your head because of noise cancelling this has a dongle, which has battery box and electronic circuit, and, if you use AT&T and T-Mobile, make sure your phone stays away from this battery box, because the box is prone to interference, and it's very loud it's not foldable makes it...
Summary: I bought these headphones so I could watch my dvds on the plane from Nashville to LA. Last plane trip I couldn't hear any of the dialog with my earbuds. With these headphones I could hear everything except whispers. After getting the size adjusted, these were pretty comfortable. I am buying another pair for my daughter for our next long plane trip.
Summary: The headphones have clear sound and I could hear notes throughout the range. I would have liked more bass but didn't notice any improvement with another brand name headphone I tried in the same price range. I wear these when running and wasn't bothered by the noise cancelling attachment that some others noted. The attachment clipps comfortably to my shorts, is light enough to clip to my shirt, and long enough to clip to my messenger bag while walking.
Summary: We also have some premium Bose noise cancelling headphones. The Bose are far, far superior to these cheap Sennheisers. The Sennheiser blocks basically all noise, and leaves somewhat of a high pitched hum. Nevertheless, in an airplane, it does help reduce the annoying noise and let you hear your music. What more would you expect for such a cheap price. The sound quality is fine.
Summary: These headphones sound great and the noise cancelling works well. If you are expecting headphones that will eliminate all the noise on a plane trip, for example, then these headphones will not do that. For that you really need the big, cushioned headphones that completely cover your ears.
Summary: I am going my 2nd pair of NC that are non-Bose. I think 3rd time is a charm and I am going to finally learn my lesson and get the Bose. I do a lot of air travel so the 2 things I try to look for in a pair of NC are: 1)Compact and easy to store 2)Decent NC to reduce plane noise I feel the NC part of this works fine. What bugs me about this pair is the cord that is attached to the battery stick. It gets tangled and trying to pack this in the laptop bag isn't the best.
Summary: i like the sound, crips high's and mid, not a lot of bass, but sounds very nice, however, this baby is going back because the three drawbacks: 1) it's a mini headphone, my ear hurts after wearing if for extended time, this is more apparent if I compare it with my other headphones. 2) the noise cancellation unit is a pain, make the headphone only useful i I am stationary.
