Pioneer SE-NC31C-K

 

Pioneer claims that 90 per cent of external sounds are blocked out simply using the 'noise cancellation' technology built into these headphones. The earphones have 14.2mm drivers and the cable is a nice 1.4 metres in length. The in-ear design is...

We were a little apprehensive they wouldn’t work at first and that the noise cancellation housing was simply too big. However, get out on the street and it’s all forgotten as the sound quality more than makes up for it. For a truly immersive sound...

Good sound quality weak noise cancellation

 

The headphone has good build quality and reasonable good sound quality. The noise cancellation works on low frequency noise, but it cannot block people's talk

Noise cancellation feature is weak

2nd Pair Very Good

 

Good job with noise cancellation. Sound good. Come with different ear bud fittings and fit my ears well. Comfortable ; Got a good deal on them

1st pair had to be exchanged because of faulty wiring. Triple AAA batteries are not cheap

Pioneer SE-NC31C-K 3.5mm 3P mini Connector In-Ear Noise Cancelling Headphone

 

These work great, bought for use on planes and in server room at work. In both situations they do their job just as expected

Not the greatest sound quality, then again they are small in ear canal buds and were quite cheap for active noise cancelling so I can't complain

Poor Wiring

 

For the MSRP price of these the quality should be higher. Doesn't take much to improve manufacturing process to ensure better product.

Was on sale

Didn't work right. Left speaker crackles. Found a kinked wire close to the left speaker. Called Pioneer customer support for warranty service and they were closed for the holidays. wiring is super cheap

Very nice

 

Got them on sale, can't beat the quality or sound.

These have to be the best sounding ear buds I have heard. The noise cancellation works very well. Excellent bass response along with exceptional high and mid tones make this the best pair I own

great noise-cancelling buds

 

I bought these headphones because I spend a fair amount of time in an electronics lab environment at work which has a lot of background white noise. I wanted a way to protect my ears, and have the option of listening to music while doing so....

compact size / easy to travel with ; excellent sound quality ; good noise isolation even with active cancelling disabled ; noise-cancelling very effective in white-/brown-noise environments ; extremely long battery life (>3 months averaging 5-10...

battery compartment a little bulky and somewhat awkwardly placed - if you don't have a button-up shirt or a shirt with pockets, it's hard to find a place to clip it. Clipped to my belt it will pull the buds out of my ears if I move in certain ways....

I was expecting more...

 

I am not an audiophile. * I am 6ft tall and the length from the earphones to the sound cancelling compartment reaches my waist with an inch to spare so it can be clipped to my jeans belt loop. I don't usually have a shirt pocket handy. * The earbuds...

Can't argue with a half price shell shocker ; Solid sound, good bass ; Light earbuds, feel cheaper than they look ; good length cord between earphones, noise cancelling unit and the 3.5mm adapter ; Good noise "isolation" with the noise cancellation OFF

Compared to my Sennheiser CX300's which were a fraction of the price, the Pioneers didn't fit as well and I had to crank it up around 20% more for the same amount of music volume ; I barely notice a difference with the noise cancelling on/off. I get a...

These work great but...

 

portable earbuds cancels out low frequency rumble sounds. Nice and compact, fits easily in shirt pocket. Quality of music is good for the price ; I got these for using on my long flights overseas to drown out airplane noises. I use these as my regular...

does not filter out middle or higher frequencies like voices. I have to increase volume to drown out those types of ambient noises
