scam

 

None. They work like standard ear buds, which you can get free when you buy an mp3 player

Noise canceling doesn't work in any way shape or form

Consumer review by:

Good ear buds at a fantastic price.

 

Initially impressed... they're not perfect, but they work well.

After opening the package, I immediately went and stood by my woodstove, with the external fan turned as high as it would go. The earbuds fit snuggly in my ear canal, blocking a good amount of noise on their own. I then cycled the power switch for the...

The compartment for the battery should be further up the cord, or further down. It has a clip on it, but it is too short to reach your beltline, so it hangs and tries to pull the earbuds out

Sounds great!

 

Really good audio right off the bat ; The long thick barrel buds (one of the many that come with it) are perfect in terms of comfort and blocking out noise ; Noise reduction is hard to notice until you get on the subway and find yourself not having to...

The heavy dangly battery pack is an inconvenience, but you can clip it to your jacket. I guess it is a trade off to not wearing bulky headsets with the battery in one ear

These are okay.

 

They fit well, and the rubber pieces you can attach for securing the phones over-the-ear is useful. The sound is fine

I was unimpressed with the noise reduction. I got these to use on airplane flights, and I found the noise reduction barely noticeable. A better choice for noise reduction is the audio-technica ath-anc3

Consumer review by:

Not very good

 

Build seems ok

Very short cord from the main section (battery/electronics/clip) ; If this was meant to be a belt clip, you would have to be 3 feet tall. The noise reduction is negligable. I bought this instead of the Sony. I got cheap, WRONG! Sony sounds better with...

Impressed

 

Overall I love these headphones because of the active electronic noise cancellation. I basically only use these for yard work (Which I do a lot of). These buds allow me to hear all frequencies of my music without cranking up the volume. I would not...

I love these headphones. The standard earpieces are very comfortable and stay in my ears very well. I like the detachable ear loop too ; The electronic noise reduction is really pretty impressive. It cancels out almost all engines or motors. I use...

Like all noise cancelling headphones they don't do a very good job of cancelling out human speech. Don't expect them to silence everyone around you. These headphones are best with low frequency and repetitive noise like engines and motors ; I...

Works

 

Better than my Bose. Lighter too

A bit strident in the higher frequencies, but these ain't for critical listening
