" ...  The noise cancelling light was on but I could not hear much over the plane noise. ... I turned off noise cancelling and could not tell the difference. ... Fortunately I had another pair of non-noise cancelling earbuds I was able to use.  ...  "

" ...  The active noise canceling won't completely drown out airplane/road noise, and it certainly lowers the audio quality a bit while it's on.  ...  "

" ...  The sound quality is very good for the cost and the noise cancelling on these is some of the best I've ever had on a pair of earbuds.  ...  "

" ...  Pros- I took them on a 2 hour bike ride today and was surprised at the full body sound quality especially the voice and drums. ... I have tried 3 or 4 other products and sent them back immediately as the sound was harsh and metalic sounding as I am an audiophile and very particular about the quality of the sound. ... SAME GREAT SOUND.  ...  "

" ...  I have multiple sets of headphones and earbuds including Bose Quiet 35's, and Sony SP600N's. ... The sound is great and I really like them. ... As they describe on their web site, they are designed to have a "HiFi" sound. ... To me that means they don't have great low end, but the sound is very clean and good especially when listenting to live performances. ... I like the clear separation of parts and vocals I get from the earbuds. ... These are not the same thing as my Bose Quiet 35's but I like them a lot and would recommend them to others.  ...  "
