Product Description

Product Description

The world is so full of noise that it can be difficult to find the quiet you need to concentrate or to enjoy your favourite music. When you need to block out the sounds of the world, you need a pair of Noise Cancelling Headphones. Monoprice Noise Cancelling Headphones have been designed to provide superior noise cancellation, leaving a quiet, empty soundstage in which to experience your favourite music. Additionally, they can be used without any musical or audio content when what you need most of all is peace and quiet. The Active Noise Reduction circuity will eliminate almost all external sounds, giving you the quiet you need to think and concentrate.

The ANR circuitry is powered by a single AAA battery (included), which can power it for up to 50 hours. The headphones can also be used in passive mode, without the ANR circuitry enabled, which gives you excellent musical reproduction, while allowing you to hear some of the environment around you. The headphones come with 55" audio cable with an inline microphone and control module, a 58 inches standard audio cable with a 90-degree connector on one end, a headphone/microphone splitter for use with PCs, a 3.5 mm to 1/4 inches plug adapter and airline plug adapter. They are packaged in a luxury "hardshell" zippered nylon storage case, which includes a nylon mesh internal pocket for the included cables and accessories. The carry case includes a D-ring, which can be used to attach a strap (not included) or to secure it to a backpack.

1x Noise Cancelling Headphone
1x AAA Battery

packaging is first class. bought this one because it was a 'generic' of bose qc15's. (Reviewed by cnet.com)
Sound- well respected and can handle most genres.
Built- looks durable enough as i use it on a very loud environment.
earcups/headband.- very soft. the headbands however is a bit stiff on top compared to the very soft qc15's... Give it a day and you'll get used to it.
Noise cancellation.- says 92%. in reality i can honestly say its around 65-75.
lastly- very minimal sound leak.
for the price its a good everyday substitute from bose QC's!

I give these 5 stars on balance with the price as a factor.

I expect the Bose version is better. But for the money I have no complaints at all. OK - pointwise:

Noise Cancelling: Powered off, these knock out about 50% of the background noise just by passive muffling. Powered on, I would say they knock out 90% of the "background drone". You can still hear people talking and car engines and other specific noises. But the reduction in the background drone of the train ride and the traffic in London is amazing. This background noise is what grates so I'm very happy. This is not a full sensory deprivation experience - but i think it does the job.

I have not noticed any "hiss" generated by the noise cancelling circuit as another reviewer mentioned.

The sound quality is OK. Again, no complaints. I have no better headphones to compare against and I'm not a music buff. The only complaint I have is perhaps they lack sensitivity - on full volume with the circuit powered, I cannot blow my eardrums out - but it is sufficiently loud most of the time. With the circuit shut down the volume drops back quite a bit and that might be a problem.

I do also notice that the local circuit changes the characteristic of the sound quite markedly - this can be compensated for with the MP3 player's equaliser if you have one - but I would have expected a flatter response.

Comfort - very good on the head - sits lightly on the ears with a good padded head band.

Storage - very nice semi-hard case to store them in.

Overall, I rate these as excellent for the money and probably good enough for a lot of usage scenarios. If you are super fussy, you'll probably want to look at something costing a lot more, but I personally could not justify the extra for Bose or Sennheiser.

Before I start this review I want to point out that I bought these with my own hard-earned beer-chits and have not been asked to make this review by anyone or been given these headphones by any company or third party.

I can say I am very impressed with these headphones.
They come in a nice quality zipped semi-rigid case with a separate internal bag for spare batteries and cables that can be removed (held in the case by Velcro).
They're very comfortable to wear (I have a small head but still needed to extend the well-made adjustment slightly. The headband adjusters are strong and do not show any tendency to 'self-adjust'! I am quite careful with all my gear, but I think the headband might actually stand up to a certain amount of abuse.
The cups sit around the ears neatly and comfortably - I have small ears and they are a close fit - it does make me wonder if someone with elephant ears would find these to be more of an 'on-ear' headphone.

The battery fits easily in through a rotating ''panel' on one of the earpieces. Hopefully the panel will not 'self-open' during use by leaning on a pillow during a flight etc and the hinge will stay attached - if there is any potential area for a breakage it might be that panel hinge, but overall these headphones strike me as being well built with nice materials.

The leads are very good quality and fit into the earpiece with a good positive 'click' ...And stay there.

The sound quality for all genres of music (Classical through Jazz to Heavy Rock) stored on my iPhone is very impressive right across the board, with a full rich bass and good detail.

I was very happy with them until the ear pads started to tear open.
The sound quality is fairly good, and the active noise cancellation is also good enough (have not tried other more professional ones).

The down side is, after 6 months of use, the ear pads started to tear open and the memory foam from inside would be visible. In the beginning I thought I must have forced one of the pads ... but when the other one started to tear open, I stopped using them all together.
The results can be seen in the photos.

Even worst is that, after contacting "Monoprice" support, they told me there is no replacement pad, they don't sell any ... so what am I supposed to do now, throw them away?
The ear pad is mildly glued with double sided tape, so I took them off, I thinking maybe some upholsterer may help me ... I not really sure.
