Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Otherwise I would probably be more irritated about the times I've found the batteries dead in the morning and realized I forgot to turn them off."
_
"The battery cover was a bit lose and unfortunately, I lost it."
_
"They are really wonderful but I cannot give them 5 stars as the battery compartment cover does not stay on well and I actually lost it on the plane trip I was on."
_
"I will agree though, that the battery compartment is very hard to open the first time."
_
"I can't really give these a good rating as I purchased them for my wife and she was unable to open the battery compartment."
_
"I got a set of Eneloop rechargeable AAA batteries for these, which work great."
_
"-easy to open battery cover and install batteries, presuming you are careful and delicate with pushing the cover open."
_
"Battery life is really good."
_
"As soon as I got the headphones, I tried them on and found it very easy to get the battery in and check out the noise cancelling aspect - I was quite pleased."

Cable

Cable:
"First, the earphone cable broke."
_
"I think the problem is its cable."
_
"Besides that I have horrible static and my cord stopped working for no good reason."
_
"We had a pair of these used for a couple of trips and then one day found the earpiece broken off and dangling by the cord."
_
"UPDATE:Now the flimsy cord it came with is starting to mess up and do that thing where you can only hear it in one ear."
_
"The cord is thin and flimsy but it it detachable, so you can sub your favorite quality 3.5mm cable of choice, just be aware it foregoes your remote phone functionality (mic and skip)."
_
"I was able to replace it with a similar cable from a Beats headphone and it worked fine after that."
_
"Nice sound but the cordwire is very cheap and at times I have to push and twist the cord to get the contact where the sound is good."
_
"These headphones also amplify vocal tones when you turn on the noise-cancellation feature, something I've found extremely useful on conference calls in busy places as the cord has a microphone on it so they work great with my phone."
_
"The cord is also something to improve but the good thing is that you can replace it in case it gets damaged... Music quality and comfort which are the most important features in headphones are 5 stars! "
_
"The replacement or repaired item came with a non-functioning headphone cord (which the company replaced)."

Comfortable

Comfortable:

_
"The cord is also something to improve but the good thing is that you can replace it in case it gets damaged... Music quality and comfort which are the most important features in headphones are 5 stars! "
_
"Noise canceling is mediocre (compared to Bose Quiet Comfort 15) - vocal frequencies pierce right through, any noise with variation in frequency will be too much for the 'active noise canceling', including voices, washing machines, even wind...Build quality is not amazing either."
_
"The quality is not so good, although is super comfortable."
_
"Pretty comfortable but painful after an 8 hr flight."
_
"I bought these headphones a few months ago and I was very pleased - great sound, overall very comfortable, and it came with a neat little case."

Music

Music:
"They also have a slightly noticeable tone that would probably not be pleasant to listen to without any music playing."
_
"They've worked well for noise canceling (I'm an editor who shares an office with a person who talks on the phone sometimes), but after 5 months the sound blew out in the left ear and a painful high buzzing pitch now accompanies all music and podcasts."
_
"The cord is also something to improve but the good thing is that you can replace it in case it gets damaged... Music quality and comfort which are the most important features in headphones are 5 stars! "
_
"The product does a good job of cancelling loud music I experience on Sunday mornings."

"The cord is also something to improve but the good thing is that you can replace it in case it gets damaged... Music quality and comfort which are the most important features in headphones are 5 stars! "
_
"These headphones work well for airplane travel, with them switched on, they do cancel out quite a bit of the background drone, and make it easy to listen to books, music or watch movies."

Noise

Noise:
"Without the noise cancellation, the volume had to be turned up and the overall experience was not pleasant but with noise activation on, the voices were clear and intelligible"
_
"Also, the noise cancelling does not work that well either."
_
"i tried almost all of them- for the money this has best balance between cost noise cancellation and comfortthe headset volume wheel is a real plusthe sound quality is very good at this price ...you can spend a lot more and get lessgood comfort - i can wear 4 hrs no problemdecent noise cancellation - not outstanding ..but not 200 dollars either!"
_
"Noise canceling is mediocre (compared to Bose Quiet Comfort 15) - vocal frequencies pierce right through, any noise with variation in frequency will be too much for the 'active noise canceling', including voices, washing machines, even wind...Build quality is not amazing either."
_
"Plus the active noise cancellation is not that great."
_
"I'm one who needs 100% complete silence for sleep, and failing that, a steep amount of white noise."
_
"It will dull the sound of the air conditioner and the background noise, but voices are still pretty clear."
_
"Great noise cancelling headphones for the price."
_
"This is the first pair of noise canceling headphones I've owned, and I'm pretty happy with them."
_
"The sound is ok and noise canceling is almost good enough but I have mild hearing loss so who am I to judge."
_
"They're lightweight, comfortable, and of course, cancel out most of the ambient noises around me."

Noise-cancellation

Noise-cancellation:
"The actual noise-cancelling is mediocre and doesn't work well for low-frequency notes (such as bass from a neighbor's stereo)."
_
"The noise-cancelling function of these headphones works quite well - I'd say easily superior to either of the two pair of noise-cancelling headphones I've previously owned (one by JVC and one by AblePlanet)."
_
"These headphones are decent for a cheap pair of noise-cancelling headphones but you get what you pay for."
_
"As much as I was wondering if I should have spent more for the Bose, I haven't regretted my decision to go with these and I would buy them again and or recommend them for anyone looking for a quality set of noise-cancelling headphones at a reasonable price."
_
"excellent noise-cancelling head phones for the price"

Performance

Performance:
"-audio cord has a mike so this unit can be used three+ ways: for making phone calls with noise cancelation, listening to music with NC, or enjoying quiet in noisy places using NC (performance to be determined).Negatives:-headphones are still a bit bulky and will be hard to carry in a small shoulder bag."
_
"Other than that one design defect, the actual product performed well."
_
"They perform well enough in commercial aircraft that I can't see using other headphones."
_
"Very happy with performance."
_
"Have to say they performed well and for the price, I am extremely satisfied."
_
"Headsets performed very well for the price."

Price

Price:
"Good compromise and decent price,."
_
"I was originally going to give it two stars because it was my bad for failing to read the previous reviews, but considering that this is not a $20-30 product, the level of quality is inexcusable and for the price I bought it at, I basically rented it for $15 a month."
_
"They're cheap, Bose knockoffs and I wouldn't recommend them to anyone."
_
"For the price these are hard to beat."
_
"They're not perfect, but for the price, they're as good as anyone has any right to expect."
_
"I'd say avoid these headphones if you plan on walking at all with them, because I feel I may have to replace them soon, so this was not money well spent."
_
"This is my third pair of inexpensive headphones and they are quite good."
_
"Great noise cancelling headphones for the price."
_
"Very good good for the price."
_
"For a comparatively inexpensive price these headphones work surprisingly well especially with the noise cancelling feature turned on."

Quality

Quality:
"Not good quality."
_
"Sound quality has deteriorated in just 4 month and the ear piece broke at the headband."
_
"I was originally going to give it two stars because it was my bad for failing to read the previous reviews, but considering that this is not a $20-30 product, the level of quality is inexcusable and for the price I bought it at, I basically rented it for $15 a month."

_
"The audio quality is not the greatest."
_
"I used them to play both music and audio books and have been pleased with the sound quality."
_
"The noise cancelling feature was great, however the chord that they give you is of the cheapest quality."
_
"The Bose headphones are perhaps more comfortable and look better, the sound quality is maybe a little better, but I have had my Noisehush for 6 months now and I can say that with noise cancelling the sound is better than any other headphones I have tried (beats and such)."
_
"Quality seems to be very good, the carrying cases are convenient (and also hold the iPods and extra batteries), but extra batteries aren't really needed since we are still using the original batteries."
_
"As much as I was wondering if I should have spent more for the Bose, I haven't regretted my decision to go with these and I would buy them again and or recommend them for anyone looking for a quality set of noise-cancelling headphones at a reasonable price."
