Excellent value!

by on 10/11/2008

I'm very happy with this product, having used them on several long flights as soon as I got them. I found the Bose prices too high for my intended use, but do not feel that I have traded down at all. Frequency response was very good, though it seemed a bit weighted toward lower frequencies, despite the Linx Audio feature designed to enhance high frequency and speech clarity. (Maybe I had just grown used to the "thin" sound of airplane headsets and forgot what that richer bass -- and even mid-range -- response sounded like!) It wasn't "boomy" or "tubby", however, just strong. Overall comfort and ease of use was excellent, though I did want to give my ears a short "breather" after about 90 minutes of continued use. Still, quite comfortable. Noise cancelling made for a much more pleasant flight. I plan to try them for some more critical home listening soon. Nicely-designed storage unit.

I'm pretty darn fussy about premium sound and willing to pay for it. Something special in the recipe in these Able Planet headphones. Very competitive noise cancelling and reasonable comfort ... but the sound is awesome! One of the better deals I've encountered in personal audio products in a long time.
