These are pretty comfortable headphones. All these dual line monitor phones are the rage these days but I got them cause they looked good and I am happy with the purchase. The able planet logo on the headphones could look less cheap.
The earphone is well made; I had bigger ear and the cushion is comfortable even after wearing it for a couple of hours. Without noise cancellation the sound is clear, and when turned on the sound becomes sharp. There is some background buzzing noise but it does block external sound quite effectively. I don't plan to fold the headphone all the way in often as it doesn't look that durable. Overall I'm happy with it in office or while mowing the lawn.
I bought it when it was on sale. Can't beat the price and quality of this product. Very happy with the purchase as my wife loves it. It cannot compare with my Bose in term of noise cancellation but no big deal here as the quality of sound is great. The shipping was quick as usual from buy.com.
