Pluses but also serious minuses


I only use this headphone for long distance plane travels. Sound is great with and without noise cancelling and headphone, case and accessory are clearly designed for travels. The first major issue is amplification of plane vibration through the noise...

Better keep looking


They were comfortable to wear and produced decent audio, but they are the the worst pair of noise cancelling headphones I've owned. They were not able to eliminate hardly any noise. I have already returned them to the store.


Too Much Ambient Noise


Consumer review by:

not bad at all


for the price, you can't go wrong.

lightweight, comfortable headphones and thus far seems to be built very well. for the price i didn't expect something mind blowing, but the sound has been very good for the price, good high and low sounds in my opinion

the cord is shorter then i would have liked, since i like to walk around with them on, it only measures about 4 ft, so i had to get an extender unfortunately. also the noise cancelling feature on the headphones doesn't do much in my opinion if you have...

Very comfortable but so so noise cancellation


Overall I'm pleased, mainly because of the comfort and low price (you can get 10 of these for one Bose!). I tried several other brands and returned them because they were either uncomfortable, had ineffective noise cancellation or were too expensive.

Quality build and good materials ; Very comfortable over the ear design with large earcups. I'm sure you can use them for 10+ hours without pain, since there is no pressure on the ears ; Lightweight ; Folds to a compact size and stores in an included...

Noise cancellation is not very good. It does drown out very low frequencies on the airplane but you can still hear the jet engines and everything else. I tried the Bose QC2 and QC3 on a trip and their noise cancellation works much better. When you...

Product Specifications

As surrounding noise is captured by the microphone, the electronic circuitry generates a signal of the opposite phase which causes destructive interference to occur, that is to say, a sound wave is generated with opposite amplitude and the signals cancel. The sound with the reversed phase is emitted by the driver and cancels out the noise as it enters the ear. Noise is kept low at the ear, making it possible to enjoy music without raising the volume unnecessarily These headphones are designed to attenuate low frequency inconsonant noise of 1,500 Hz or less. They do not have great effect on relatively high frequency components such as automobile horns, telephone rings or the human voice. PRODUCT FEATURES: Cancels ambient noise; Designed for in-flight use; Travel-fold design for easy carrying; 2 level noise canceling effect; Separate controller; Plug adaptor for aircraft included; Frequency response 10Hz-22kHz; Long battery life - up to 50hrs.
