Great Travel Over-Ear Headphone
I received these on Friday, and was testing them the very next day in airports and on airliners. The sound quality, with the on-board battery-operated amp, is exceptional. Bass response is especially full, compared to standard earbuds. These over-hear phones also don't have the current "ghetto" look of many newcomer headphone companies. The collapsable design is innovative, and does not really sacrifice comfort or performance. Makes you wonder why all phones aren't created this way. Minor Cons: The noise-cancelling feature is marginal, as it does mask about 25% of the ambient white noise, while not really reducing the screech of crying babies, etc. But at 1/8 the price of Bose Quiet Comfort Noise Cancelling Headphones, that's an acceptable trade-off. One note about the size. The phones feel a bit snug on a larger head (my head is 7-5/8) over long trips. However, the detachable single audio cable, travel bag and gold-tipped airline adapter are nice and classy accessories that are included. Overall, a good buy.
