Fell apart


Dont buy if you travel a lot and need them for plane rides, they dont travel well.

Reasonably priced, lots of good reviews on newegg

Fell apart in about 3 months, literally. base is distorted when noise canceling is enabled. They are junk, wish I would have spent a little extra on a nicer pair

Great for Price!


If looking for a a decent priced pair of noise cancelling headphones, these will definitely do the trick!

First time using the Audio-Technica brand, but very impressed. Sound becomes very clear and does a great job drowning out most noise. Case and removable headphone cord has already came in handy a few times

The 'lock' headphones got tricky a few times, and if wasn't hooked up correctly, was only playing out of one ear ; When not using the noise cancelling feature, sounds seems to be dampened a little bit

Noise cancellation works fairly well with constant sounds like jet noise, but does not screen out changing sounds like talking. Most of the external sound reduction comes from the cushions.

Just finished putting them through their paces. Sound is very good as I write this. It is better than a cheap pair of Logitech USB ones I have , which lack the deep bass, and somewhat better than an old Radio Shack set of comparable price

If you set the bass too high with noise cancellation on, it apparently feeds back through the headset and distorts badly. Some distortion with booming bass without noise cancellation. If you listen to real rocking bass, these headphones are not for you

Some people say the bass is lacking, i think they didn't plug in the jack ll the way. When I first hooked up these headphones the sound was bad then I pushed in the jack all the way and it was awesome, plenty of base and clarity.

Makes my noisy as poop computer quite

Great quality, and it really does block outside sound. But I've used cheaper headphones without noise cancellation that sound better purely for the fact that they have more bass. I'm not some bass junky that needs my ears blown out either. I'm...

Dampers outside noise ; Good quality ; Comfy

Short cord. Not a problem for me, but I mean, it's like...1-2 feet long. I've never heard of a company providing a cord that short. Clearly for personal, MP3, computer and CD use. Nothing far ; Lacking Bass in my opinion. Music just doesn't have as...

Exceptional Sound AND Noise Cancellation


I purchased a pair of ATNC27s approximately 20 months ago and they are still going strong! I have not had any issues with the cord( as you may read in other reviews ) but as it is very thin I take extreme care not yank or snag when in use. I keep it...

Great set, better Noise Cancelation than SOUL!


I love these! My big issue is the cord, it's rather stiff & not a universal size. The ends are different sizes. The cord broke after 6 months of constant use the cord broke inside somewhere. I started using my husband's SOUL noise Cancelation...
