Performance

I have been through three sets of noise cancelling headphones trying to achieve that delicate balance between maximum noise cancellation, accurate fidelity and long wear comfort. The Sennheiser was tops for comfort (not best for noise cancellation with the open-air design); the Sony had great cancellation and fidelity, but I could not keep them on for long flights (pinched); and the always over-priced Bose doubled and distorted on some bass input. Upon seeing a positive review in one of my professional audio trade publications about the Audio-Technica, I decided to try one more time. They are awesome on all counts.

I love these headphones! They are extremely comfortable. They perform great in all ranges and the noise cancelling feature is amazing. You can also go 'cordless' if you want to utilize the noise cancelling feature alone. I am so glad I found these while I was looking at the much more expensive Bose headphones.

Better than Bose

on 6/18/2007

I've tried the Bose headphone and found this one to be much better. The noise canceling feature is about the same as the Bose when not listening to music - but when music is added the sound quality is far more superior. Read More

The Sound of Silence

on 9/24/2007

I bought these after reading the New York Times article by David Pogue where he reviewed a dozen or so brands of noice cancellation headphones against the industry standard Bose. He recommended the Audio Technica saying they basically work as well as the Bose at half the price. Not having tried the Bose, I can't compare them, but having just gotten back from a cross country plane trip, the Audio Technica headphones work great. Can't imagine being on a plane without them. Glad I bought them and saved the money on not buying the Bose. Also, they are great for listening to music and other programming while in the noise cancellation mode-you move into a flow space unlike standard headphones. Do they cut out all sound, no. But the advertised claim of reducing noise by 85%, I think they do. Kudos to Audio Technica and thank you to Davide Pogue. Read More
