5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good! 14 July 2011
Colour Name:Black
I was a bit skeptical of purchasing this product as I had not heard of this brand before and also because there are a number of products with perhaps more recognizeable brands competing in the same price range. After searching the Web and coming across a number of positive reviews, I thought, what the heck - let's give it a shot.

I'm glad that I gave these a chance. For others who may have similar doubts, here are my thoughts for your consideration.

Sound quality: Good, decent bass and the highs are crisp. The sound quality is better than I had expected and comparable to much expensive headphones that I've used before. I listen to a fairly wide range of music - classical to rap to house. It all sounds good on these headphones.

Active Noise Cancellation: Very effective, I've tried these on the street, bus, tube and overground in London and have to say when activated, it cuts out a lot of the background noise. As expected with ANC, there is an audible hiss when activated but it's barely noticeable once the music starts. I can listen to my music at a lower volume now that the sound doesn't have to contend with all the extraneous background noise.

Design / appearance: Better than I expected. It's not the most streamline or sleek looking set of headphones but it's not an eyesore to me either. The clip is handy, especially since the ANC unit adds a bit of weight to the cord so you can limit the pendulum affect by affixing the unit to your jacket or shirt.

Fit: I wasn't sure what to make of the rather strange-looking earbuds but I have to say they fit quite snug and are comfortable to wear. As expected, they are shipped with the standard 3 sizes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ordered my second pair 19 April 2013
By Lambrin
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I've used this regularly for more than one year now, detecting their good and bad points.

- Very good noise cancelling, much better than heard on some much more expensive sets
- Light and portable, unlike the sets which use AA or AAA batteries
- Very good battery life
- Sound quality comparable to a much higher price range
- Price (is this real?!?!?!). One of the top noise cancelling sets on the market for just £10? I initially paid £30 and it still was an amazingly good price!

- The only flaw I found so far is that the earbuds fall out very easily. Extra attention is needed and I guess the pouch for keeping the headphones in does have its meaning...

I would certainly recommend and in fact, I have already bought them for others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb music and good cancellation 24 Jan 2011
Colour Name:White
I've been surprised by these since first trying them. The music reproduction is superb and the ambient cancellation is much more impressive than any other units I've tried. Battery life is excellent too - it laughed at a 12h flight and was an absolute godsend throughout.

By pieter
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Very good music quality, crisp highs and adequate bass.

But, noise cancelation is almost non existent as soon as the earbud(s) are not perfectly fitting. As soon as the slightest amount of sound creeps in due to not fitting right, almost the entire noise cancelation is lost. The only way i can achieve a tight seal in my ear canals is using the largest bud rubbers and putting the buds upside down in my ears and really push them in. Not only does that look odd, it stresses the cable where they atach to the buds, and the length of the cord between the right earbud to the conrol module is too short to clip the control module to my shirt pockect. All in all disappointing due to not being able to get a perfect fit, considerng a refund if possible.

update: they fit my wife ears perfectly well and she is stunned by the noise cancelling. For me, the angle in which the buds protude from the earphones is way off. My ear canals point upwards & forward, while the buds point downwards & forward when wearing them. For me, they should be rotated about 90 degrees, pointing forward & slightly upwards when the cable is pointing straight down. So its design doesnt suit me, maybe it suits your ears. Too bad the design doesnt allow to rotate the angle of the buds (contemplating cutting them open and glueing them back together rotated right now :-) )

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection, at last! 20 Aug 2011
By Optimus
Colour Name:Black
I tried them all. Audio Technica (ATH ANC7), Sennheiser (PXC 250), Bose (Quietcomfort 3).

All of them good, but all of them BIG. As a result, they would all spend most of the year in a drawer, and when ready to go on holidays they would be left behind because of their size. Kind of defeats the point, really.

But not anymore. These little Wolfson beauties are small, therefore portable, so they slip in your pocket / bag / cabin luggage effortlessly.

And because of their size, they can also be worn in public, in any and all situations, all year round.

Did I mention the sound quality? Just as good, if not better than all the others mentioned above. Just as efficient, if not more, in the noise cancellation department.

So all in all, a pair of noise cancelling earphones that you can actually carry with you at all times, and which sounds gorgeous! It even comes with a pouch for transport, and an adapter for those who wish to use a mobile phone instead of an mp3 player (yes, it also has a mic so you can take phone calls with it!)

Definitely five stars. Highly recommended!
