Style Name: Noise Cancelling Verified Purchase
I looked at a lot of noise cancelling headphones and choose these based on price and reviews on the internet. I recently used them each way on a four hour flight to Turkey. You can only use them for about three hours because of restrictions on take off and landing but they proved comfortable during that time and I have a large head and large ears. When I first put them on I disappeared into my own peaceful world. I could listen to my MP3 player without turning up the volume. You can still hear a faint background noise. I could still hear my family and stewards speaking to me but occasionally had to take them off if they were not close to me. I could hear the announcements over the speakers clearer than without them. After a while I wondered how much effect the noise cancelling system was having compared with the natural over the ear effect. I switched off the power and was amazed how much noise came in - almost as much as taking them off. The sound quality was probably not as good as my old hi-fi headphones at home but was fine considering what I was listening to and where. I have a couple of problems with my hearing and usually take a few hours to recover after even a short flight. Having used these I was in perfect condition at the end of each flight and can recommend these to everyone.

I bought these for situations where I need wireless - listening in bed, gardening. My comparison is with my beloved Bose Quietcomfort 25 noise cancelling wired headphones (three times as expensive). I listen almost exclusively to classical music.
These are excellent for the price. They come in a well designed and nice case. I found them easy to set up (Bluetooth on both a windows 10 tablet and iPhone - you do have to re-register them when you switch devices and don't try that with the one that it is connected to nearby as I did at first).The noise cancelling works well. Not as effective here as the Bose which achieves surreal levels of quiet (i have tried a direct contrast with my washing machine on noisy cycle and on a train) but very effective, particularly when the music is playing. The phones were a little tight on my head at first but they have worn in after a few days use. The Bluetooth works at a reasonable distance; this depends on the device. I find the connection with my tablet breaks up only a few feet away but the iPhone stays connected about twice as far.

Sound quality: clear and attractive middle sound, very good playing soloist, small ensemble. Excellent stereo separation. I particularly like having a volume control on the phones. This makes them my preferred choice on the iPhone (the Bose have no volume control and the iPhone is very volume restricted even with volume restriction turned off!). There are some price effects: the stereo is a little one dimensional, at very high volume with full orchestra there is slight distortion. But the sound is enjoyable to listen to: for the price, very good indeed.

It's difficult to give a full review for noise cancelling headphones without trying the competition, specifically the Bose Quiet Comfort line of headphones which seem to dominate the market. However, it's easy to compare on price - these Lindy headphones are 6 to 7 times cheaper than the Quiet Comfort 25 model.

I'd never heard of Lindy as a manufacturer before, and initial impressions weren't too promising. The build quality isn't great. I would describe the feel of the headphones as 'plastiky', and I suspect that their life expectancy will be limited by part of the structure breaking.

The headphones come with a detachable 3.5 mm cable, a 3.5 to 6.3 mm jack adapter, an airline headphone adapter, and an AAA battery. The mechanism to release the battery cover on the right headphone is stiff and tricky to open, further adding to the negative initial impression.

When plugged in to an audio source, the sound isn't great, sounding very muddy with little contrast. However - and this is where the review goes from two stars to five stars - when you turn on the noise cancelling, controlled using a simple toggle switch, it's an entirely different experience.

The sound becomes a lot brighter and punchier. Furthermore, there's this odd feeling as if the noise is being sucked out of your head. I've had this experience before, testing a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 25 headphones briefly in a well-known UK department store, and it's an odd feeling. Without testing them side by side it's difficult to tell, but I would say that the Lindy does pretty much the same job as the vastly more expensive Bose.

The effect is more pronounced when you're in a continuously noisy environment.

They're ok for the price, but not great.

good points:
- they're blocking out a lot of sound already when just putting them on in passive mode without any music
- very good sound in active mode
- reasonably comfortable, with large earparts, so they don't squeeze your ear
- you can unplug the cable at both ends and replace it completely. Most headphones I went through over the years I had to throw out because the cable got dodgy
- comes with a nice bag and adapter
- relatively cheap

bad points:
- enclosed cable is quite short
- headphones are very heavy
- in passive mode the sound coming out of the speakers is noticeably muffled, which I didn't expect
- in active mode if you move around or chew something and your ear touches the membrane inside the headphone, it makes
- active mode burns through the batteries quite quickly
- even in active mode you can *still* hear people talking around you, it just makes everything sound tinny and distant.

Conclusion: You get what you pay for. If you just want to lower the noise around you it's fine. If you suffer from APD, you'll want something stronger.
