" ...  But these just sit on your ears for hours, create a good seal while providing good sound. ... I can't compare these to really expensive headphones, as I rarely spend more then $100 for a set, but they compare favorably to any of my favorites over the last 30 years. ... Just as soon listen to music on these as on my Yamaha amp and speakers or on my Bose car stereo.  ...  "

" ...  This is the first pair of Bluetooth and noise-canceling headphones I've ever used, and they have been excellent. ... It was so great to be able to block out the noise of the city streets and subway. ... So now I make sure to turn both the noise canceling and bluetooth off when not in use.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The sound quality is good - not amazing, however the active noise canceling is amazing. ... I am using them to listen to binaural beats while I work and it eliminates a significant amount of ambient noise, really allowing you to focus on what is infront of you rather than distractions around you.  ...  "
