Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"I called Able Planet & they ran me through a diagnostics to ascertain whether it was the cord or the headphones themselves, & PROMPTLY resolved my problem!"
_
"The cord is removable from the headphones, which should reduce the cord getting broken where it attaches."
_
"I personally really liked how they designed the cable (which is a mediocre grade cable) and how it inserts itself into the headphones."
_
"Included in the box:* Headphones* Connection cable* Jack adapter (if your sound source doesn't use the standard mini-jack)* Carry bagBenefits:* Nice noise reduction (mostly through superior fit, not noice canceling technology) - I was wearing them at my computer listening to music, and my wife was standing behind me talking away - I didn't even hear her, so I got in a bit of trouble* A nice rubberized, grippy, flat black surface* Lots of flexible (but firm - not floppy) joints for finding the perfect fit* Light weight* Soft padding around the ears and across the head rest* Being so light and comfortable, you hardly notice them once they are on* Full, around the ear seal* Internal volume control, located on the connection cable - many bad reviews from people that have failed to find this feature ...* The connection cable disconnects from the headphones for easy and safe storage - with less pulling and stretchingCons:* the true audio-philes will be less than satisfied with the sound quality, mainly, you are talking about just adding extra volume and reducing exterior sounds with a quality physical build and fit."
_
"Oops forgot to mention that while they were helping me ascertain what was the source of my trouble the technician mentioned that IF you have a cord issue they ALWAYS will have the cord available for YOUR model, no problem!"
_
"I really love the 1 4 jack to the headphones, it seems that is where cables always tend to break down."
_
"Comes with a nice long cord, so you can use it at your desktop comfortably7."
_
"I personally really liked how they designed the cable (which is a mediocre grade cable) and how it inserts itself into the headphones."

Headphone

Headphone:
"So, buy at your own risk because if your headphones fail, you can't count on this company to honor their warranty or to act in an ethical way."
_
"I received these headphones as a gift and after using them 3 times they broke: The connection between the ear phone part and head bracket was no longer intact so the ear phone part now makes no contact with my ear and swings off at an angle."
_
"Can't believe how great it is to have a good travel headphone that is now perfect for XBox, Skype and Laptop comference calls."
_
"I called Able Planet & they ran me through a diagnostics to ascertain whether it was the cord or the headphones themselves, & PROMPTLY resolved my problem!"
_
"The hard case was also very nice, it's often hard to protect a nice set of headphones with only a soft case."
_
"The cord is removable from the headphones, which should reduce the cord getting broken where it attaches."
_
"Other than that, these headphones still sound the same--very good."
_
"This is my second pair of Able Planet headphones."
_
"I've had my NC200 headphones for a year and highly recommend them for sound quality, durability and comfort."
_
"Able Planet NC200 Foldable Noise Canceling Headphone is a decent product both for music listening or for use as noise reduction."
_
"With SUPER comfortable foam cushions built into the headphones at key contact points where the headphones rest on your head."

Noise

Noise:
"Music sounds good, not great, noise canceling is pathetic at best."
_
"Plus in the noisy inviroments that I work in, they just didn't hold up as well."
_
"One criticism is that with the noise reduction mode on, there is variable crackle particularly with the low frequency sounds."
_
"LOLPROS:+ EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE+ GREAT FEEL+ PRICE+ QUALITYCONS:- NOISE CANCELING FEATURE NOT PERFECT BUT ACCEPTABLE FOR PRICERECAP: If you're looking for comfortable, quality headphone that won't break the bank, these might be what you're looking for."
_
"The second pair worked for quite some time, a month or two, and then it began emitting a terrible clicking sound every time a loud noise in the outside environment came about--an utterly terrible sound, not acceptable by any means."
_
"*BIG PROBLEM: when the noise cancelling is running, a very noticeable crackling static sound--similar to the sound waxed paper makes when it is crumpled--is generated."
_
"Do not buy this one, noise cancellation is, well, noisy, and the sound quality is similar to listening to music in a bathroom!"
_
"I recently added a Linx Microphone from Able Planet and now have Linx Audio and Noise Cancelation in my microphone in addition to the NC200."
_
"The Panasonics were a wonder and I was happy when I recieved another pair of noise canceling headphones."
_
"Able Planet NC200 Foldable Noise Canceling Headphone is a decent product both for music listening or for use as noise reduction."
