Genius GHP-04NC review: Genius GHP-04NC


Genius is known for making budget computer peripherals and other accessories, and it's nice to see the company making a foray into the world of noise-canceling headphones. The big headline here is the price: The GHP-04NCs only cost $50, which is $300...

Affordable noise-canceling headphones; strong bass; carrying case included.

Lack sonic detail; not very comfortable; design looks a little cheap.

The Genius GHP-04NC noise-canceling headphones deliver strong bass and OK sound in a $50 package that includes a carrying case, but they a look a little cheap.

Genius GHP-04NC


unexpected that that same pair outputs thunderous bass response. The Genius GHP-04NC blows my mind. I'm not sure anyone who buys it to reduce airplane or train noise will be all that thrilled, but for bass lovers on a budget, this is a great option....

Outstanding bass response. Extremely affordable. Quality audio performance overall for price. Can be used in passive mode

Weak noise cancellation. Somewhat uncomfortable to wear. Cable not detachable. Runs on AAA batteries

For the $50 purchase price of the Genius GHP-04NC, you get only so-so noise cancellationand tremendous bass response.

They're cheap, but are they cheerful?

Genius GHP-04NC review


28 is a remarkably low price for noise-cancelling, over-ear headphones. The design looks more PC peripheral than personal audio, but it does have a well-padded headband and two comfy, properly articulated ear cups. It's powered by two AAA batteries,...

Comfortable noise-cancellers, but the sound just isn?t up to much

Great noise-cancelling ability; comfortable

Poor hazy sound; lack clarity

Earphones from Genius : Genius GHP-04NC headphones


While earbuds are popular, my travels around London still see a lot of people preferring Earphones and in fact it seems to me especially in noisy environments that such items are in fact more popular than they used to be.

The Genius GHP-04NC Earphones are available from the link below for £27.59 plus delivery (£3.99 when I entered my post-code)

GHP-04NC review


Noise-cancelling technology usually costs an arm and a leg, so we were intrigued to try the Genius GHP-04NC, which offer noise cancelling for £39.99

Excellent noise-cancelling for £40

Poor comfort, sound quality is only OK

Sound-wise, the headphones are OK. You sacrifice fidelity for the noise-cancelling tech - music quality is a bit muddy but perfectly passable for casual listening.
