With excellent sound quality and first class active noise-cancelling, these earphones enable you to enjoy your music on the move without having to raise the volume in noisy places such as the tube, trains, buses and airplanes. These earphones are equipped with a microphone that picks up ambient noise and shuts out up to 90%. A handy 'monitor' button temporarily turns off the noice-cancelling effect to enable you to hear your surroundings when needed. 1 AAA battery (included) is enough for up to 120 hours of noise-cancelling playback. If you can't replace your battery right away or don't need to cancel noise, you can turn off the function and use the SE-NC31C as regular headphones.

Quite light and portable, the packaging includes a pouchette and an airplane adaptor.
Quite good audio quality; lacks a bit on the basses, but they still sound great and they never get muddy. The audio profile seems best for pop music, but I got a good quality response from all genres.
The noise cancelling is better than I thought; it produces an audible white noise (kind of a hiss) but halves or silences everything else. I honestly thought this would not work with voices etc but it has changed my office experience. It's of course more effective with low pitch noises, i.e. the cancelling effect on female voices is not as good as the one on male voices.
At the current price, you can have beetween 4 and 6 pairs of these for the same price of the premium Bose solution.
Very long run time off a standard and easy to replace battery.
Very light, and not really premium materials - it looks all but sturdy. Cables are kind of rigid compared to other brands and unluckily not replaceable.
Earbuds are kind of big and stick out of your ears. Also, the rigid plastic shield to which the rubber tip is attached can be pretty uncomfortable after a prolonged use, I'd suggest to try moving it around your ear to find the best fit for you.
There's not a long cable between the battery holder and the earbuds. I'm 170cm and I can easily have the earbuds in and the battery holder attached to my belt, but taller people might have some trouble with such a setup.
No sound isolation at all. The tips are not designed to be stuck into your ear channel, but just to sit next to it. I can see the advantages of this for comfort, but it also means that even in low noise environments you may still want to activate the anc circuit, which of course will decrease the sound quality. With high volume, audio leakage might be an issue for some too (but if you go full volume, why did you get anc anyway?)
No volume control or microphone, the only controls are anc on/off and a push button to temporarily stop it.
It's not flawless, but considering the alternatives on the market, the sound quality, and the current price drop I think this seriously is a best buy! Of course if you are not into compromises on audio quality or anc effectiveness, Bose wins - but you can get several sets of these for the price of a single Bose set, and these have a very long running time and standard batteries!
However, they are not suitable for a daily commute as there is no control for use with a phone, all control needs to go through the device as well as answering calls, which is a pain. So for noise cancelling and a decent sound, these are great but if you want controls these won't be suitable. Also the noise cancelling unit is quite bulky and the clip broke after about 6 months of continuous use, making these unusable as the unit is placed high up in order to clip onto a shirt collar, and it is heavy, so without the clip it pulls the pod right out of your ear.
I rarely endorse products but am enthusiastic about these Pioneer SE-NC31C in-ear noise-cancelling phones which are excellent.
The AAA battery lasted much of the time from Manchester to Australia (i.e. it wasn't switched on quite all the time and was still working when we arrived) and decisively cut out much of the jets' noise to make flights more comfortable.
The first thing I discovered is that you don't even need to connect it to anything: insert the earpieces, switch on, and the jet noise fades significantly! The earpieces do protrude slightly (the microphones are located there)so you can use the gadget to lower sound levels while you doze, but you couldn't fully sleep with them except on your back. But with music or speech of course it does the job excellently - allows you to hear details at a much lower volume which can't be heard otherwise.
If you have no background noise, then you don't need to switch them on. The sound isn't degraded and they work as straightforward earphones.
Quality of sound? Not as good as true hi-fi headphones such as my Grado ones, but to me perfectly acceptable on mainly classical music plus some jazz. But I'm getting on and my hearing's diminished, so let me quote my son-in-law who considered they were fantastic quality for his taste in pop music.
The control unit with its battery has a clip on it which is convenient. A small button on it allows you to mute the earphones temporarily to allow you to hear people, though of course the inserted earphones do inevitably slightly hinder hearing.
No I rarely endorse products, but I was so delighted with these, chosen after reading reviews here, that I decided I ought to let others into the secret. There's only one snag - I left them in Australia for my son-in-law's commuting so I now need to buy another pair, that's how impressed I was.
