Product Description

Amazon.com

Keep the outside world at bay and focus on your favorite music or movie with the compact and amazingly affordable Aiwa HP-CN6 noise-cancelling, over-the-ear headphones. They'll help to reduce perceived outside noise by more than 70 percent (up to 10 dB at 300 Hz) so you can hear musical nuances against a quieter background. Perfect for packing away for plane travel or even daily commuting on the bus or subway, the HP-CN6 features a convenient folding design that easily fits in your carry-on bag or purse. It offers an adjustable fit that will even accommodate a hat and tilting earcups for an optimal resting position on your ears.

The headphones' noise-canceling circuit senses outside noise using tiny, built-in microphones and sends an equal-but-opposite canceling signal to the headphone drivers, effectively blocking solid-state (continuous) noise from 40 to 1,500 Hz. It's especially effective on noises like air-conditioning systems, freeway rumble, and airplane engines (from a passenger's perspective).

The switchable noise-canceling circuitry runs for approximately 30 hours on a single AA alkaline battery (with battery housing located just above the right earphone). When noise canceling is off, the headphones continue to function for standard music listening (and with slightly better sound quality). The headphones' neodymium-magnet diaphragms deliver powerful sound.

The HP-CN6 features a mini-jack for connecting to portable CD players and digital audio players, but it also includes a larger jack adapter for home stereo receivers and a dual jack for plugging into airplane seats, enabling you to enjoy the in-flight movie in peace and quiet.

What's in the Box
Headphones, carry pouch, stereo receiver jack adpater, in-flight dual jack adapter, and printed user's manual

They do start to hurt your ears after about an hour but you get used to it.
A. E. Hernandez
If there is no breeze or wind, the music is louder but I didn't notice any active noise reduction.
TheCFC
I consider them to be very comfortable and attractive-as attractive as headphones can come!

I've been using these headphones for a while and have been very pleased so far. First the battery life is outstanding. I used the headphones for over a year before the batteries ran out. Others have complained about the fit but I guess I'm lucky in that they don't bother me. There is some hiss when you turn them on and I wouldn't recommend them for quiet listening. In airplanes and on the subway however I have found the headphones to work very well in cancelling noise and the hiss is really not a factor. Sometimes high pitched noise like voices or loud headphones feel like they are amplified. Overall, for subway/bus/plane listening these are a good deal and I recommend them.

The Aiwa HP-CN6 Noise Canceling, Over-The-Ear, Headphones was made with precision and great attention to the needs of consumers. Having owned the Bose Headphones for over one year, I allowed my Sister to borrow them for a long flight she had to New York. It was a Non-Stop and she was wanting to rest peacefully. So I gave her my Bose Headphones and off she went. Since she enjoyed them so much, I passed them onto her and told her to just enjoy them.

I tried going without a good set of headphones and finally decided that I HAD to purchase a quality set of headphones and needed them soon. I went online and did a great deal of research. In many cases, so many reviewers focused on the Bose-likely because of their large advertising budget. But if you think of it-it can't be too complex to put together a high quality headphone at a reasonable price.

What I immediatelty discovered what that Bose had some competition from a company called Aiwa. Wherever I looked, in my need to find additional technical reviews, I would seem to find the AIWA HP-CN6 Noise-Canceling Headphones. I could not believe that they were priced so affordably so I research that issue. Others had posed that same question and I learned that the ONLY real reason for their lower cost is that they didn't spend the millions of dollars in advertising that BOSE had.

I love all BOSE products and have nothing but good things to say about them. If I HAD to choose something to take up with BOSE-it would only be the cost of their products. However, I decided to purchase the AIWA HP-CN6 Headphones for just under $50.00.

I've had the headphones for almost 3 months and they have done nothing but continually impress me.

Summary:

Great noise reduction headphones for the money. Not as good as my current favorites, Sennheiser PXC-250s (which I also own). Also not as good as $300 Bose cans. But very capable. Good reduction of low frequency steady noise (which is all that any active noise reduction phones can properly deal with). Reasonably comfortable. Construction seems a bit on the cheap side, but they haven't broken yet. For sound quality, they are reasonably good compared to other noise reduction headphones, but mediocre compared to good non-noise reduction headphones. Typical story there.

Note that the predecessor model to these, the Aiwa HP-CN5, were basically identical to the Sony MDR-NC5, but the Aiwa were about half the price. (Sony owns AIWA, and on the back of the HP-CN6 package you'll even see a (c) Sony notice). As the HP-CN6 is a model upgrade from the HP-CN5/MDR-NC5, there is no reason in the world to buy MDR-NC5 given the major price difference.

Strengths:

The battery fits in the headphone band, which means no second in-line box to lug around. That's a BIG convenience compared to things like Sennheiser PXC-250 or Bose.

Very inexpensive for the quality.

Fold down into relatively compact size.

Excellent noise reduction.

Decent (but not amazing) sound. Certainly good enough for any environment where you'd want to use noise reducing phones.

Weaknesses:

Not the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn. OK, but not great.

Seemingly cheap construction (but haven't had any problems yet).

Better sound quality options are available at similar or lower prices if noise-reduction is not important to you.

I travel a lot on airplanes (>125k miles last year), a lot of it on international flights where a good set of headphones is crucial. I've been using the Aiwa headphones for about 2 years and have found them to be a nice compromise from the fabulous - and fabulously expensive - Bose headphones.

My version came with an airplane adapter (essential) and little attenuator cable that is required in most cases because the volume on the plane is set up to cut through the background noice with high volume. When the headphones cut out the background noise, the resulting audio is way too loud. Hence the need for an attenuator.

I don't use them on the ground or in any other situation very often, and never with the noise cancellation turned on, so the problems with hiss that others mention are never a problem for me.

If you can afford it, the Bose noise-canceling headset (about $300) is truly amazing. Comfortable (the earpieces fit around your ears) and with terrific audio response. American Airlines sometimes lets customers in international business class use a set, and it will spoil you for all others. However, I wasn't willing to pay 10X, and the Aiwa's are a nice compromise.
