Battery

Battery:
"Not worth the need for batteries and an annoying little box in the middle of the line."
_
"The power unit containing the battery is not placed well."
_
"The battery pack is in a horrible position."
_
"Good noise cancellation and battery life."
_
"* The battery connector is heavy, the wire from the battery to the connector is only about 2 feet, and they're clumsy and tangle easily."
_
"The battery life is pretty good."
_
"On the Bose Quiet Comfort headphones, if the battery dies and you don't have a replacement, just put them away because they are useless."
_
"The battery life is amazing."

Cable

Cable:
"Even though they still have the weird cable length which makes it awkward to carry and listen to I still think it's the best bang for your buck."
_
"The connection cuts out when you hit the cord and it's hard to listen to music or have a conversation using them."
_
"The battery compartment is right in the middle of the cord, so it is kind of in the wrong place."
_
"The other negatives are that the cable is full length and is too long for airplane seat use."
_
"My only complaint is with the cord length before and after the noise reduction module."
_
"I thought it was a cable connection problem."
_
"Bose uses a rechargeable battery that needs a micro usb cable (included) to charge it, so if you have a phone that uses the same cable to charge then its pretty convenient and you will most likely never run out of power as most international flights have a usb charging port in the seat infront or next to you."
_
"While the battery box has a clip on it, it is too far down the cord for me (a pretty average 5' 11 male) to clip it to any reasonable part of my clothing (like the waistband or collar), and still have enough cord remaining to be able to reach to the phone in my pocket."
_
"My only gripe is the location of the switch battery pack and or the length of the cord as you pretty much have to clip it somewhere on your abdomen for the cable lengths to work out."

Music

Music:
"The connection cuts out when you hit the cord and it's hard to listen to music or have a conversation using them."
_
"Holding it is a bit less convenient if you have a music player in hand, so I recommend assessing your wardrobe situation before considering using these in public."
_
"In my case, I didn't insert them fully into my ears to improve comfort, but the noise cancelling worked very well, reducing background noise at home (e. g. dishwasher) and aircraft noise enough that I could turn the volume down a lot and still enjoy my music (classical, jazz, Hawaiian, etc.)."
_
"If you're listening to a good track with lots of frequencies, it does a good job of blocking the rubbish music that the gym plays."
_
"Easy to carry, works well with noise cancelling and music and my video player and my laptop."
_
"Noise canceling is adequate which helps understand voice and enjoy music while in noisy surroundings."

Noise

Noise:
"Reduces the wind noise some, not as good as earplugs, but it helps."
_
"The noise cancellation is somewhat weak (I can clearly hear my mechanical keyboard typing this review while playing Queen through them)."
_
"Does not reduce much background noise, and not comfortable."
_
"So I'm stuck with uncomfortable earbuds that cancel no more noise than my regular Sony earbuds, which are much more comfortable."
_
"Not as effective as Bose over ear noise cancelling headphones, but the Audio Technica's are very good and not as bulky as over ear headphones."
_
"* Not effective at cancelling keyboard clatter or machine noise."
_
"Excellent noise cancelling, incredible price for that."
_
"I use these now in noisy coffee shops to be able to focus on work."
_
"The passive noise isolation is critical to these things working well -- what good does it do to try to cancel noise if the noise is entering your ear outside the damping system?"

Price

Price:
"NOISE CANCELLATIONThese aren't as great at cancelling noise as the Bose QC25, but at the price I would say they do a pretty good job."
_
"These QuietPoint headphones aren't the absolute best out there, but they provide decent performance at a great price in a very small package."
_
"Though it is probably not as good as normal non-noise-canceling at the same price, I think the sound quality is good enough for me."
_
"Excellent noise cancelling, incredible price for that."
_
"Audio quality is quite good, especially for the price."
_
"Great and affordable!"
_
"These are the best noise cancelling headphones for the price, you will find."
_
"Works well enough, especially for the price."

Quality

Quality:
"Given how i mostly listen to podcasts talk-radio, i will not want to comment on sound quality, but the noise cancellation is miserable."
_
"The sound quality is mediocre at best, I have had headphones like the apple one that's got way better sound quality."
_
"I'm happy with them - plenty comfortable, noise cancelling works well enough, and sound quality is better than most but not the best."
_
"I also don't expect good audio quality on a loud flight anyway."
_
"While the Bose are not perfect, their NR qualities are amazing."
_
"I listen mostly to old time radio shows (half hour show length matches my half hour walk), so I can't speak too much to the amount of base they put out, but I can tell you that the shows I listen to are pretty easy to understand, and the quality of the original recordings is not the greatest."
_
"Audio Quality:A tie in my opinion, both are great for what they are!"
_
"Overall audio quality is good."
_
"Audio quality is quite good, especially for the price."
_
"You can spend 3-4 times as much and get better sound quality and noise cancelling, but I find this quite adequate and satisfying."
_
"BUILDThe ATH-ANC33iS have a good build quality."

Size

Size:
"My ear canal is very small which may be the problem but even the foam buds would not stay securely in my ears."
_
"The only downside to noise-cancelling earbuds is that they all have a small amplifier box that hopefully you have room in your pocket for."
_
"It is much more comfortable than wearing a large full size set for a 10+ hour flight."
_
"The amplifier box is pretty small compared to others I've seen, which is good."
_
"They are really great as a travel companion due to their small size and great noise cancellation."
_
"They fit well, come with several tip sizes, and are nice and lightweight."

Sound

Sound:
"Sound: Not the best but for NC headphones they are pretty good."
_
"These ear buds didn't sound good at all."
_
"These do not do as well cancelling out voices and one off sounds as they do for repetitive or underlying noise (AC, fans, engines etc.)."
_
"I'm going on a 19 hour flight and I needed to be sure these would drowned out the most annoying sounds on earth."
_
"SOUND QUALITYThe sound isn't the best I have heard from AudioTechnica."
_
"Makes it easier to hear other sounds like sirens and horns better."
_
"To top it all off, the sound is great!"
_
"I run live sound and have a set of ATH-M50 over the ears which are the best sounding pair of headphones I have ever heard."
_
"They aren't unpleasant and they will end up sounding better on an airplane than a pair without active cancellation."
