Good background noise filtering, OK fidelity."

 

For office use, or airline use, thumbs up. 

This is the only set of noise-cancelling headphones I've used. That said, I put them on at the office, where I sit near a refrigerator and a microwave, and switched them on. Magically, the background drone disppeared

Musically, these lack depth and bass. But for my purposes, just listening to music to drown out hallway conversations, these are great. Even with the music off, it's much quieter around me with these on

Still sold at Dixonx in the UK for 60 UK pounds. Not worth a penny. Returning mine after 48 hours & 2 flights
