pretty good headphones
on 8 October 2011
Sennheiser has always been a good brand for headphones and I wanted to have noise canceling option since I take the plane regularly so I went for this model (without bluetooth called "BT"). The headphones are comfortable, I wore them for a ten hour flight straight, sure it hurts a little when you take the off in the end but it's ok. There is no bluetooth so the battery is used fully for noise cancelling and it lasts over 24h when fully charged. Noise canceling is pretty good by the way, really reduces the plane noise. The general sound is good as usual with sennheiser, except maybe a slight lack of bass when noisegard activated, not much though. Now for the bad points : at max, the sound level is not that high when turned off (better when "on") but still definitely ok for average users like myself, the worst point is the red blinking led light. Light which can be turned off on the BT model but not on this NON BT model, the option is not available!!! I had to put some black stupid tape on it to hide it from my neighbor commuters/passengers.
Anyhow, I would still recommend this headphones especially compared to Bose models (who cannot be used when they run out of battery) because they work with or without battery and sound and building quality is good as usual with this brand, but I would also recommend maybe to add a few more money and get the BT model in order to be able to turn off the led and also get the bluetooth option.
