Summary: Great headphones. Highly recommend.
Pros: Light and compact. Great sound and NR. Use w/or w/o NR. Long battery life on NR. Can find good price. Detachable cord. Monitor feature. Extra battery, cord exten, ipod nano w/ strap, 2-pin adapter fit in case. Comfortable on a 12 hr flight.
Cons: They aren't made by Bose so now I need to figure out what to do with an extra $200 in my pocket.
Summary: Very good noise cancelling with a nice unique design along with deep bass, however without the battery/noise cancelling the sound is totally different..... There are better choices but this would be good if You're looking for active noise cancelling at a good price.
Pros: Bass, Comfort, Noise Cancellation
Cons: Price, Some static noise, No battery no quality, Bass kind of distorts mids and highs
Summary: I've used Bose noise canceling earphones for years. When the outer ear cups on my last pair inexplicably peeled off when I laid them on the cover of a paperback book overnight, and Bose only offered to sell me new ear pads at full cost, I decided to look around for an alternative.
Pros: Comfortable on-ear fit, great noise cancellation, neatly folds into compact case
Cons: Annoying monitor button easy to accidentally push
Summary: I bought these on a sale price match without being able to try them first. Very comfortable, good solid build, and good overall sound. There is good bass and sound stage. The noise canceling is pretty good. Cancels out most of any droning/humming background 'white' noise effectively. My only complaint is while it's convenient they work without batteries, the non-powered mode is substantially less impressive than the 'on' mode. At least you have the option.
Summary: I like almost everything about these headphones. The sound is great; the fit is comfortable; the look is thought out and stylish, they are very light; and $100 cheaper than the Bose QC 15. What has caused me to return these headphones only after 4 days is that when I have them powered on, I pick up radio stations (2 at the same time to be exact). If I move around the reception raises and falls in strength; the cable acts as an antenna.
Summary: Bought these after christmas and they are amazing! Sound is great, Noise-cancelling works great! I travel to work from the east coast to Fort McMurray so a great pair of headphone is important to me and their cheaper than the bose QC15. I love the fact you can still use it without the NC or when the battery dies. 1- AAA batterie so very convenient. Nice case that came with it. No complains at all!
