Fantastic for long flights,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic RP-HC700 Noise Cancelling Headphones (Electronics)
I bought these as I was about to fly to Australia from the UK, and wanted something to break the monotony of the engine noise.
I was considering the Bose alternatives, but at 300 quid couldn't justify them.
The 700s performed admirably - the sound quality is top notch, not far behind my Sennheiser HD-280s if at all, and the noise cancelling reduces the engine noise down to the point where you can actually hear the music without having to turn it up to deafening volume.
The batteries were nearing the end of their life after 2x11hr flights, but always carry a spare set anyway. The headphones work without batteries anyway, just without NR.
I also like the hard case that they come with - it's small enough not to take up too much room in your hand luggage, but protects your investment.
Finally, I found them extremely comfortable, even when wearing glasses - 4/5hrs at a time was no problem.
