"For example: Skullcandy's Hesh 2 (with a microphone for taking calls).PRO:- Price Inexpensive- Light Weight- Stays on your head- Includes Noise Cancellation- Noise Cancellation can be used while headphones are not plugged in (reduce ambient noise even when not listening to music)- Headphones can be used without a battery- Durable & extremely flexible- Folds to a small size for easy storage & travel- Includes an airplane jack to be used for in flight entertainmentCONS:- Sound quality does not impress- On ear design reduces comfort and limits the ability for the noise cancellation function to be truly effective- Ear cups are covered with a thin faux leather material that can crack & flake- Does not include a microphone for taking calls- Does not include any controls (such as volume up down, or track forwards back)"
_
"In summary I would not hesitate to recommend these headphones, they fulfill the specific needs of what they were designed for, they exceed my expectations at a price point that makes them very attainable to any consumer."
_
"These headphones barely are mediocre."
_
"These are decent headphones but the noise cancelation is not very impressive."
_
"Last week the little elastic strap that bridges the headphones and provides the only holding pressure broke at the attachment point on the right side."
_
"Today the band, which sets the headphones on the head, broke."
_
"As long as you're not going to invest a few hundred dollars in noise cancelling headphones these are the perfect choice."
_
"I shopped around for headphones for about a week before buying these, and they were perfect."
_
"If your goal is to limit the sound of students or co-workers talking around you - over the ear headphones (hopefully with a noise cancellation feature as well) are your best bet."
_
"The trouble is that it seems most of the cost is going towards the Noise Cancellation feature and not into simply making the headphones sound good."
_
"While these headphones lacking in any sense of style, they do a great job of staying on your head even when you move around."

"If you are trying to use them as a secondary headphone set for producing listening to music, they are not adequate."
_
"This is annoying and detracts from the quality of the music."
_
"People who use it to listen music, won't recommend."
_
"Treble was missing as if it wasn't in the music itself."
_
"Not for professionals at all, but to study or just listen a good music it's perfect."
_
"When combined with music, amplified by the headphones, they create a pleasant bubble of audio privacy that allows me to concentrate on my work and tune out the background."
_
"I haven't had comparisons, but music sounded surprising good given the low price."
_
"They work very well with voice and music, and seem to represent a good value for the price."
_
"If you play loud music, you may be able to drown it out, but anything softer than metal and you'll hear the buzzing and distortion."

Noise

Noise:
"Mediocre job at reducing noise."
_
"Noise cancelling isn't perfect no matter what the pair, but the dampening of sounds is significant enough to improve my focus... of course, I still have internal distractions such as writing this review instead of writing for my work..."
_
"The only reason this didn't get 5 starts was because the noise cancelling is good, but not the greatest."
_
"These are decent headphones but the noise cancelation is not very impressive."
_
"The battery didn't last a week even though I turned them off every time I went home, except once -- next morning the battery was dead and noise cancellation wasn't working."
_
"When these are turned on the noise became much less irritating than without them."
_
"Pretty good noise reduction, absolutely lousy for sound quality."
_
"As long as you're not going to invest a few hundred dollars in noise cancelling headphones these are the perfect choice."
_
"If your goal is to limit the sound of students or co-workers talking around you - over the ear headphones (hopefully with a noise cancellation feature as well) are your best bet."
_
"The feature does work, but is best suited for limiting the ambient noise on a bus, or airplane."
_
"Very clear sound, noise cancel feature works great!"
