Summary: Cheaper than high street retailers. Good sound good bass long wire But the battery compartment for noise cancelling tends to pull out the headphones unless you clip it onto your clothes. Ps very comfy too!
Summary: I saw some negative reviews of these after I purchased them so was a bit apprehensive when I received them. I am presently travelling on large noisy aircraft a lot and I cna say the noise cancelling definitely works for me.
Good passive headphones, active noise cancellation non-existent

Summary: First impressions are very positive for the price. These are pretty good quality headphones for 35 quid, even forgetting the noise-cancelling feature. They are comfortable. Then the best feature of all is that, passively, they do a great job of blocking out noise.
Summary: Not being a fan of big over ear headphones, I gave these a go. I use them mainly when travelling on trains or planes which I have to do frequently with work. They are a good comfortable fit and they will block out any chat from other passengers or PA announcements.
Summary: Amazing quality sound, great noise cancelation. The only downside is the length of the cord. I found myself literally tripping over it sometimes. This is probably the only reason that led to its downfall of 2+ years of use. Decrease the length of the cord and we have perfect headphones
Summary: When I was considering buying these I read the reviews and saw there are different views on how effective the noise cancelling is (as opposed to the noise isolating which all seem agreed is effective) I think mine have got better with a few weeks use - not sure if there is a rational explanation but...
Summary: The sound quality from these head phones is good even with my wide taste in music (Enya to Heavy metal). However the ambient noise cancelling is questionable. They quoted an 87% reduction. My guess is this is a literal 87% reduction in sound pressure.
