Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"Sony headphones has1) Wireless headphone2) Noise cancellation is pretty good than Audio Technica (not as good as bose QC25)3) Rechargable battery (Even bose QC25 doesn't have one)"

"To explain the caveat and why you should be wary...These headphones pivot at the ear cups (which feel flimsy), and while they are wireless; it means that the wire to stream audio, calls, etc is DETACHABLE."
_
"Audio quality (8 10):From my use (only on airplane) they do sound decent."
_
"For my taste the audio quality is great, but that's where your personal taste defines what is suitable to you or not."
_
"I fly ~200k miles a year and bought the Audio Technica ANC7b with which I'm very satisfied."

Fit

Fit:
"At the maximum extension the headphones did not fit comfortably over my ears."
_
"They barely fit my head (That may be my head's problem)2."
_
"The caveat is that technically these headphones fit both of those requirements: they fold (sort of) and they're wireless."
_
"She was disappointed that they didn't fit well because she liked the way they sounded."
_
"Unfortunately they fit her poorly."
_
"The ear cups are small; my ears will fit inside but are scrunched up a little and this becomes uncomfortable over time."
_
"Great sound, doesn't fit larger head."
_
"Because of the fit issue I returned them and bought a pair of Bose QC15's, which are very comfortable and no fit issues."
_
"I liked everything about these headphones except fit and comfort."
_
"I'm comparing these to the Moment Of Revelation I had when I tried on a pair of Bose at a local big box retailer -- those immediately wiped out the store and fit comfortably."
_
"The band didn't expand enough to comfortably fit my ears (my head is big -- I wear a 7 5 8 hat -- but it is not THAT big; it is just within the normal range of hat sizes) and the noise cancellation was pretty average."

Music

Music:
"Use them primarily on flights in a turboprop airplane... yep that is noisy when you are sitting in the wrong seat, but these headphones do a great job of lessening the sound down to a level that lets you enjoy the flight and listen to your music."
_
"Would recommend to anyone looking for a great headset for noise canceling, music and calls."
_
"Also, other people would be able to hear your music with these, as my girlfriend sitting next to me could hear it just fine when i was testing it."
_
"Sound quality is good if you want to listen to music."
_
"PROS:- Excellent sound quality- Noise cancelling function (can be used with or without music)- Sturdy storage case- Comfort level (I use these 5 days a week for 4+ hours day)- In-line remote and microphone (I have an iphone and can pause, play, ffw, rew, skip music)CONS:- BIGGEST CON: The in-line remote and microphone does NOT have a volume adjustment function."

Noise

Noise:
"Not great for noise canceling."
_
"Use them primarily on flights in a turboprop airplane... yep that is noisy when you are sitting in the wrong seat, but these headphones do a great job of lessening the sound down to a level that lets you enjoy the flight and listen to your music."
_
"Not comfortable design, and also the noise cancellation is not good."
_
"I bought them in a attempt to try to isolate myself from my noisy work colleagues, but it seems their noise is not continuous and they are very loud."
_
"The noise cancelling feature is super weird at first, but makes for a much better listening experience in loud environments."
_
"Now just outside the 1 year warranty period after replacing the battery the noise cancelling function has failed."
_
"The noise cancelling is very evident when you turn them on and it does a good job of cancelling the droning of an airplane."
_
"I tried a two other brands, short of buying Bose's, this is my preferred devise and really selected based on balance between best prices vs noise cancelling and sound quality as I usually will listen to a movie or music on my flights."
_
"I've been using for about 8months, have been flying frequently lately and has become essential to reducing stress of flying- such as engine, noise, etc..Works great at reducing noise, allowing you either reasonable quite or hear just your device."
_
"Noise cancelling works great!"

Noise-cancellation

Noise-cancellation:
"It only happens when the noise-reduction option is on, but it happens often, unfortunately."
_
"Also, some people complain that noise-cancelling reduces sound quality but I guess this isn't studio headphones so I didn't notice any difference.."
_
"The button that switches the noise-cancelling function on and off has become faulty over time resulting in intermittent operation of the right earpiece."
_
"After a long search for headphones earbuds that are both comfortable, noise-blocking, and relatively affordable, I ended up ordering this pair of Audio Technica headphones based mostly on the positive Amazon reviews."
_
"I'd read reviews suggesting that the noise-cancellation was pretty great (while not top-tier, where the nod almost always goes to Bose's QuietComfort series, with the Audio-Technica ANC9 an also-ran) and that they were good for those of us who are cranially-endowed (aka have big heads) -- and since the latter is definitely me, I nabbed a refurb pair from another retailer which are currently winging their way back there."
_
"Noise-Cancelling feature works well! "
_
"The difference is amazing - the noise-cancelling is excellent and the sound quality is as good, although better with the noise-cancelling activated."

Price

Price:
"I wanted the Bose but the price was hard to swallow."

_
"I tried a two other brands, short of buying Bose's, this is my preferred devise and really selected based on balance between best prices vs noise cancelling and sound quality as I usually will listen to a movie or music on my flights."
_
"just as good as Bose..got them for a great price too."
_
"I compared them directly to the Bose display in the store before purchasing and I must say these perform just as good as the Bose for less than half the price."
_
"The price is reasonable and they are good."
_
"Not like Bose but is very decent for it price, feel very comfortable wearing it for a long flight"
