Top positive review
Not the cheapest by very well worth the price.

I bought these despite neg aspects to other reviews as regards one side failing after a few months. These are still going strong as you would expect. They are very comfortable. Most if not all the headphones I have ever owned have become uncomfortable to wear after long periods of continuous use. These phones remain comfortable for hour after hour on long train journeys. The external noise dampening is second to none in my opinion, and I have had a few. Even though I generally listen to dialogue and not music it is still pretty good. Only downside is you still get wind noise if out in a stiff breeze. It may be something that is unavoidable. But if other's don't suffer from the problem, I'm afraid these do. Sometimes I forget to switch dampening on and it is still pretty good. I will say that when the battery gets low the dampening cuts in and out until you change it. The trouble with that is, with dampening switched on and a not enough power the sound virtually disappears when dampening fails. So carry a spare.
