The headphones are comfortable, dampen external noise and sound great on my computer or MP3 players. Great price!@
Good for the price, but the cord is short & thin.
Excellent value for Noise Reducing headphones2/3/2014
I have been using Able Planet headphones for years now. They are good quality and performance for the cost. Really can't beat these for $40.
These are very comfortable. There is a slight volume boost overall when switching on noise cancellation, quite useful if your mp3 player or Ipod has a volume/power limit. The in-line volume control is also very useful. The sound quality is great, much better than I expected for the price I paid. Noise cancellation is effective. Case and accessories are of high quality. You will not be dissapointed.
Was very surprised in the the quality for the price:)
very comfortable headphones1/3/2014
The headphones are very comfortable with good sound quality. They seem to be pretty sturdy and light in weight. The noice cancelling does reduce outside noise. another review mentioned that the volume does increase when the noise cancelling is turned on which is also true. I would buy this again.
These headphones are great.1/1/2014
Sound is terrific. Very comfortable fit. Volume control is a nice feature.
Excellent headphones, but....12/25/2013
The headphones are excellent and the noise reduction works great, but over 50% volume and they bleed out the sound, so you might annoy others nearby. So if you travel on a plane and like to crank the sound, might not be an good choice. But for watching movies on a plane at normal levels, these work great!
Value for money and best performance12/20/2013
I am extemely satisfied with the sound quality of this head phones. Noise cancelling is pretty good. It will cancel the ambient noises such as sound of A/C, flight engine etc. Overall a good ANC headphone.
The NC300B are Black high performance audio. Noise Cancellation is good quality and blocks most surrounding noise. I like that the headphones work whether or not the battery/nc switch is on or off. Very comfortable for long or short flights. Strong Bass. High frequencies are crisp. I highly recommend these Able Planet NC300 headphones.
Great sound, terrible materials and bad customer s8/3/2011
I owned these headphones for 9 months and was generally pleased with them. The sound is great, the ear coverage was good, and the noise cancelling seemed to do the job. Honestly, it mostly seemed like it made the headphones louder but it also removed background noise. I even wore them on a 14 hour flight and the battery never needed changing. However, they broke under less than average wear and tear after those nine months. There was a symmetric and identical failure of the earpieces that caused them to be uncomfortable to wear. I contacted the customer service department and was told that they would not honor the warranty as the plastic failing had somehow been my fault. Needless to say, I will never purchase these again nor another model and I suggest you do the same.
Just tried these out on long flights to Europe. Perform very well with good battery life. Comfortable. Probably not Bose quality but for the price, a good value. Comes with nice case and accessories. Only issue is that the on/off switch can easily be flipped on by mistake in a brief case.
