The headset folds quite well without the construction feeling flimsy. There aren't any cushions on the headband, so if you don't have hair that might be something to think about. These headphones are lightweight, and the compartment that holds the on-off switch, battery and the noise cancelling circuitry is also lightweight. The placement of the compartment on the cord keeps it quite close to my mp3-player, and long enough for a person of 5'11" to keep in the trouser pocket, if you don't want to use the clip-on to fasten it to your shirt or something. The battery life is truly excellent, after a month of using the noise cancellation for maybe 2-3 hours a day I'm still using the battery that came with the headset!
The noise cancellation works even if you're not using a music source, and you can use the headset without the noise cancellation as well, which is to be expected but not always found on comparable noise cancelling headsets. All in all, one of my best purchases this year.
I have to say, I am very impressed the the quality of these headphones and the ability to provide good noise-cancelling abilities as well as portability.
Apart from that, it comes with an airplane socket and battery life tends to be a few days if left on.
For the price point, I think they are excellent - but I do sometimes fear for my 'phones as the provided carrying case is a light flexible rubber, and wouldn't protect them at all. They fold inwards nicely to save space (perfect for travellers such as myself) - but a hard /rigid case would make me feel a lot less nervous!
The bad - there is a serious design flaw with these headphones. The battery pack for the noise cancelling circuitry sits about 1 foot up the chord from the headphone jack (which used to plug into a phone) to the actual headphones. So, when I put my phone in my pocket for example, the battery pack hangs loose (there is a clip to attach this to something, e.g. ones's shirt). However,the join between the bottom end of the chord and the headphone jack is NOT strong enough to take the weight of the battery pack and hence starts to fray after a while. See photo.
Other noise cancelling headphones (e.g. Bose QC25s) have the battery pack for the noise cancelling circuitry in the headphones themselves.
I returned two headphones in less than 3 months each.
By the way, if you check the reviews on the Audio Technica website, you will see that I am not the only one who has had this problem.
