The price value is good for these headphones. They are larger than I had expected so they are not good for exercizing/jogging etc. However in a car or airplane they were very good.

The sound produced by these headphones is terrible. I get better quality sound from $10 headphones. Also, the noise canceling is non-existent. This is a very poor product and is not up to the standards of

Great noise reduction at a low price

by Heath on 6/2/2007

I purchased two of the HN-505 headphones from Since I do not see the 505's here, I am adding my review to the 605's. I hope they are of the same high quality as the 505's. I am very pleased with the 505's. After rebate the 505's were $15 each. For that price I did not expect much. When I first got the headphones I tried the noise reduction feature by standing next to my noisy dishwasher. To my amazement the headphones eliminated most of the dishwasher noise. On my recent road trip they eliminated most of the wind and road noise. My six year old daughter commented that she liked wearing them because they "made her ears comfortable." She said this while she was not listening to anything, just enjoying the noise reduction. I did the same and enjoyed the quiet. They were very comfortable to wear and easily adjusted to fit my big head as well as my kid's little heads. We also enjoyed wearing them as we listened to music, a book on tape, and DVD's. They worked very well with all three types of media, eliminating the road noise while delivering clear audio. I also bought a pair of $30 Audiovox noise reduction headphones (model ACC114) for the trip. The Creative Lab headphones beat the Audiovox headphones in all areas. The noise reduction was much more effective. The Audiovox headphones reduced the road noise, but seemed to introduce a bit of their own noise in the process, so the overall effect was less reduction and more remaining white noise. The 505's were much more comfortable to wear and they folded down compactly while the ACC114's did not. Based on the assumption that the 605's have the same noise reduction technology, and the fact that they look similar to the 505's I intend to buy two pairs of the 605's so the whole family can enjoy them on the next trip. Also, I received my rebate checks from Creative after about 5 weeks with no hassle. Get a pair and try them for yourself!
