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

Works as advertised, very satisfied


Very useful for traveling, when I fly I like to use a small bag that detaches from my backpack. When I board the aircraft I put the backpack in the overhead bin and stow the small bag under the seat. These earphones are more compact than headphones and...

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

Consumer review by:

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

Consumer review by:

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
