Sitting next to a computer, you no longer hear the fan noise, however you can still hear people talking - which is to be expected.
Your ears get very warm due to the large pads, however there is virtually no noise leakage even on high volume. They offer very good sound, with good bassey tones, and crisp vocals.
They are fairly lightweight, even with the AAA battery.
Even though they are sold as Noise Cancelling, the writing on the headphones is mis-spelt as Noise Canceling.
Overall, a great value product.
2. The cable is quite short if you intend to use these with a home hi-fi. Looks like you get about a metre - which is fine for travelling or a portable device, I guess.
3. The noise cancelling works. In an office environment, it completely blocks out the background rumble of the air conditioning. Flick the switch, and about a second later there is silence. Doesn't work on fast changing noise though - colleagues chattering etc.
4. No battery included in the retail packaging: needs a single AAA 1.5V. You do get an adapter for use on aircraft though (double 3.5mm jack plug).
5. If I had paid High Street retail (£50) I'd be a little disappointed. But for £35 delivered, they represent pretty good value.
6. Sound quality is perfectly acceptable. I'm no audiophile, but the overall experience is good.
7. Overall: recommended.
If you've ever wondered how the Berlin Philharmonic would sound if they were playing Ride of the Valkeries while Miami is being flattened all around them by Hurricane Harriet then reach for your wallet now. Otherwise ...
Maybe they'll work better in a windless environment but these are essentially useless outdoors.

Had this a while before I rated the product - I think its rubbish, and broke some while ago. The noise cancelling was not that great either.Published 3 months ago by Umpa
These headphones are brilliant but battery for noise cancelling died very quickPublished 23 months ago by Mr. K. M. Groves
Good name, not the best cancelling as they fit too much on the outer ear, not very forgiving on adjustment, hard band. Read morePublished on 13 Jun. 2013 by Suddie00
For some reason the cables were irresistible to a house mouse. Cables chewed through so very limited use of these head phones.Published on 1 May 2013 by dr jeffrey m bateman
When I think of noise-cancelling headphones, my mind always conjures up the wonder Bose headphones that they demo in their stores that miraculously make all loud sounds disappear. Read morePublished on 28 Sept. 2011 by Mr. G. Manning

Quite expensive as they actually are better with noise reduction off.. With it on they simply emit a low hum and amplify the strangest frequencies.. Read morePublished on 21 April 2010 by Mtr Percival
Not 'noise canceling' but noise 'reducing', but well worth the money. Worked great on the 4 long-haul flights I made to Australia and back!Published on 31 Mar. 2010 by Mr. J. T. Cutforth
