Noise

Noise:
"The reason I gave these 4 start and not 5 is because there is a good amount of cable noise, but I guess you have to sacrifice something to get headphones that sound this good at this price point."

_
"I would return them, but for the money they will serve their limited purpose - for airplanes where open ear phones just don't work well due to background noise."
_
"This pair has similar bass, good enough , but the highs are terrible(too noisy)."

"Budget noise canceling as they fit so well they block out most everything."
