ANNIE40YELLOW The earphones keep cutting off in one ear and you have to move the battery wires on the ends of the box that the batteries are in that are not connected to the earphones. They are very comfortable and when they work the sound is noise cancelling for the price but not the greatist.

Hairy Harry I've been using mostly in-ear buds, and the sound quality of this product does not compare. The bass is not there and it lacks rich tones. When I saw that these "noise-canceling" headphones were for [$] I knew it couldn't be true. It was cheap, so I decided to buy a pair since all of my earphones have broken. It didn't come with a AAA battery so I had to purchase some myself. Roughly $15 spent (headphones + 5 batteries). I tested out the "noise-canceling" function and discovered that it does NOT noise-cancel as it should. It merely amplifies the sound so you hear less of the background. Sure it could be because the ear cups only sit on top of the ears rather than covering them, but I seriously doubt that it uses any type of destructive interference that real noise-canceling headphones do.Then again, it is cheap, pretty lightweight, foldable, and confortable. It does reduce the background noise a bit, but definitely NOT noise-canceling. Not for audiophiles, maybe alright for easy listening.

On The Road I bought a pair of these last year to listen to audiobooks and music while driving. I was very pleased with the reduction of ambent noise and the quality of the sound. Also, the battery seems to last forever. They even fold-up for storage, which now leads me to the only drawback (which is the deal breaker, unfortunately) - its flimsy construction in the hinge on top. It is plastic, and unless they have redesigned these (the photo looks identical to mine) you will have unusable (and unrepairable) headphones sometime between the day you get them and next Christmas. It never ceases to amaze me that with all of the advances they can make in technology, they still resort to using such poor construction in things. I was very sad the day mine broke (and I was very careful with them), I'd have to say stay away from these.

bekitty I bought these headphones on sale, and am disappointed with the construction and noise-canceling ability. They don't cancel noise, and the sound quality is poor.

asufan i wanted these for running and they were a bit too bulky for that maybe good for computers etc the volume was not quite load enough for someone who has ear damage from led zeplin in 1977 I picked them up for [$] so the price was good

Kel The headphones don't completely eliminate all background noise but are comfortable, compact, and sound good.

nothing Good product, comfortable, could use more noise cancellation. Good for its price

Deanna This is pretty much exactly what I wanted. The headphones seem to cancel noise even when the noise canceling feature isn't on. I use these headphones pretty much every day.

Zooot Does not cancel noise.
