Manufacturer's Description

Noise Cancelling, the smart way.

With excellent sound quality and first class active noise-cancelling, these earphones enable you to enjoy your music on the move without having to raise the volume in noisy places such as the tube, trains, buses and airplanes. These earphones are equipped with a microphone that picks up ambient noise and shuts out up to 90%. A handy "monitor" button temporarily turns off the noise-cancelling effect to enable you to hear your surroundings when needed and the bullet type ear chip further reduces external noise. 1 AAA battery (which is included) is enough for up to 120 hours of noise-cancelling playback. If you can't replace your battery right away or don't need to cancel noise, you can turn off the function and use the SE-NC31C as regular headphones.

These are great quality headphones. The sound is deep and rich and really clear. I've heard things on favourite tracks that I'd never heard before - they're that good! The noise cancelling is great and works surprisingly well. You can happily block out the background noise on a busy ferry and the sound of a TV in the same room. Overall, I would highly recommend these to anyone.

Pioneer SE-NC31C Fully Enclosed Dynamic Inner-Ear Noise-Cancelling Headphones - Black

I rarely endorse products but am enthusiastic about these Pioneer SE-NC31C in-ear noise-cancelling phones which are excellent.

The AAA battery lasted much of the time from Manchester to Australia (i.e. it wasn't switched on quite all the time and was still working when we arrived) and decisively cut out much of the jets' noise to make flights more comfortable.

The first thing I discovered is that you don't even need to connect it to anything: insert the earpieces, switch on, and the jet noise fades significantly! The earpieces do protrude slightly (the microphones are located there)so you can use the gadget to lower sound levels while you doze, but you couldn't fully sleep with them except on your back. But with music or speech of course it does the job excellently - allows you to hear details at a much lower volume which can't be heard otherwise.

If you have no background noise, then you don't need to switch them on. The sound isn't degraded and they work as straightforward earphones.

Quality of sound? Not as good as true hi-fi headphones such as my Grado ones, but to me perfectly acceptable on mainly classical music plus some jazz. But I'm getting on and my hearing's diminished, so let me quote my son-in-law who considered they were fantastic quality for his taste in pop music.

The control unit with its battery has a clip on it which is convenient.

These headphones do what they are supposed to, which is playback audio and reduce background noise. However, they are fairly poor at the former and just OK at the latter.

I get the tube to work each day so noise cancellation is important to me and these headphones lower the background rumble of the train by around 50% - however, for over £60 I would expect a better job. I used to use a Walkman with built in noise cancellation (NWZ-X1060) and it did a much better job than these headphones do (when paired with my Xperia Ray).
I have also used the headphones on a transatlantic flight and I must admit they do a very good job at blocking aircraft noise (better than on the Tube).

The audio quality is below average; again I expected much better considering the cost. In fact, my £7 Panasonic headphones provide much better sound quality - it's a shame that they lack noise cancellation.

The battery enclosure is also awkwardly placed for tall people - I'm around 6ft4 and it does not reach my waist so I can't clip it onto my belt and am only able to use it when I have pockets at chest level.

Battery life is excellent. I used the headphones for around 90 minutes every weekday for about 3 and a half months before needing to replace the single AAA battery required for noise cancellation. Of course, the headphones will still work without the battery as standard headphones.

In short, avoid these headphones unless you are planning to use them solely on airplanes which is where they are in their element.

My last two sets of earphones have been Shure sound isolating SE210s, which were great but both failed with the same fault (reduced volume in one ear) just outside the two year warranty period.

Based on the reliability issues I decided to try the Pioneer SE0NC31C earphones, which have some great reviews on this site.

The sound quality of these phones is superb. Low, mid and high end sounds are dealt with equally well and, initially, I was really pleased with them. I got on the train the morning after I received them, switched them on in noise cancelling mode and was immediately impressed by the reduction in the background noise. I was seriously happy!

Unfortunately my wife was sitting next to me and was less happy - she told me she could hear everything I was listening to. Not just the "sh sh sh" type sound that you often get with earphones, she could hear the actual lyrics. And no, my volume was not that high. We tried them again when we got home and, quite frankly, the level of sound leakage was ridiculous. We tried them with the three different ear piece fittings and pushed them right into our ears but it made little difference. These sound great but must be the most annoying earphones on the market for anyone sitting nearby!

I returned them to Amazon and have now invested in a pair of Shure SE215's. These seal external sound and sound leakage completely via the tight ear piece fit, rather than electronically like the Pioneers. Their sound is marginally inferior to the Pioneers, but I know which I prefer overall - so long as the Shures don't fail again!

Incidentally, I mentioned the Pioneer sound leakage issue to a hifi dealer the other day who said it's a known design issue, so I don't think my set were faulty as such.
