Philips SHN5500 noise cancelling headphones

 

Good price, nice sound, but the Philips SHN5500 is not so strong on the actual noise cancellation.

Although Philips claim the Smart noise canceling technology is good at eliminating low level noise found for example on an airplane, they did little to help with regular ambient noise as other noise cancellation headphones do. But at a budget conscious...
