Pros: The noise cancelling works pretty well which is why I gave these 2 eggs. The mid and high end sound ok but is tinny.
Cons: After trying these out in multiple devices and listening to different types of classical and rock music I was very disappointed with the low end. It just doesn't exist. I'm not after bounce my brain around type of bass, but you need something there to support the structure of the music and it was completely lacking.
Summary: These were unavailable from NCIX when I ordered them, so I actually got them from another source, but thought I'd write a quick review anyway. I buy Sennheiser headphones exclusively because I've never been let down by their sound and build quality. These headphones were worth every penny. The sound when you get them is very flat, as it should be. Not heavy on highs or lows, just flat across the board.
Pros: - sound quality, - noise cancelling, - comfortable for long periods of time, - don't have to listen to screaming neighbour kids anymore, - sennheiser
Pros: High quality sound across all frequencies. Not just a lot of bass like some companies make for the new generation. These also have a response from 8-28000 Hz, which is just way beyond what others are doing. These may be better than Bose at noise suppression, but they definitely beat Bose at quality, even when in passive mode and the noise suppression turned off.
Cons: If you don't intend on using these for listening, and only for noise canceling, Bose may win in that category. These need to have music going through them to really make them shine.
Pros: Very Very nice noise canceling. I live in the city and i always here cars and what not. These make it like im in the country again no noise! I can smoke my cigars in peace! Plus very good audio quality! must buy!
Summary: Bought these headphone because i have heard them before and also liked the fact that they are noise canceling. The noise canceling works really well on low frequency sounds like plane engines and car noise. Used these just yesterday on a 3 hours car trip with noise canceling on and it creates a sense of space making you feel very comfortable, when i eventually took the headphones off the road noise was deafening because i didn't realize how well they canceled the sound...
Pros: Can be used without batteries when they run out, Great sound quality in bypass mode, Great at noise canceling, Build quality is amazing, Ear cups are SOOO Soft, Detachable Cable
Cons: Not to blown away by the look of them, but some people like them.
Summary: I got these as an early Christmas present and wore them for the first time on a 14 hour flight from Australia to Argentina, the comfort factor was exceptional I never took them off and even slept in them, the noise reduction provided made the flight so much more comfortable.
Pros: Excellent sound quality and good comfortable over the ear fit.
Summary: Every time I flew I used these headphones on the flight to listen to music, watch films etc. to pass the time but never for just 'noise cancelling'. I am really pleased with the quality of sound. However, I recently did a red-eye flight and wanted to sleep, so I unplugged the lead and switched on the headphones and used them for just noise-cancelling and I was amazed at how good they were.
Pros: 1. They work really well., 2. The position of the headband allows you to lay back without knocking them off your ears.
