Cheap option for noise canceling headphones...
on 26 September 2011
I didn't expect much of these, as in my experience the cheaper a set of headphones is, the greater the decline in sound & manufacturing quality. I was pleasantly surprised by these. They are proper noise canceling 'phones. I tested these at nearly full volume; no noise leakage (until, obviously, you take them off your ears. Then, everyone within a 10ft radius can hear that you're listening to Ice, Ice Baby).
While these are not professional standard, they're perfectly fine for commuting, in the office, flights, etc.
Lookswise, the color runs true (I bought turquoise), and they look very clean & simple.
A couple of other reviewers have noted that these are very tight; they're right, they are. To the point where your ears feel a little tender after a certain period of time. A reviewer said these loosened up after a little time and I'm hoping mine do the same (FYI, the circumference of my head is 56cm, or 22.04 inches...).
