Size Name: ANC27 Over the Ear Verified Purchase
I purchased a set of Audio Technica ATH-ANC27 Noise Canceling headphones five months ago because I was working in noisy places and also doing a fair amount of traveling. I have found these headphones to be a reasonable compromise between low end headphones and the high end $300 Bose models.

This type of noise canceling technology is best at counteracting smooth, steady sounds such as the incessant roar of the jet's engines, or the whir of a computer server's fans. When you put them on and turn on the switch, these sounds magically disappear. Conversations and other random types of noises are muffled but do not disappear.

When you travel by air twice a week, as I am doing, noise canceling technology really makes a difference. It just makes the flight time go by faster and more pleasantly. Similarly, when you are working in an office with lots of noise, it minimizes the noise and puts you into a kind of cocoon of privacy.

The phones use a single AAA battery and I have found that it lasts quite a long time. Typically I change the battery about every 2-3 weeks. I don't use the phones all day every day, but probably about 20 hours a week, so I would say it uses power very efficiently. An LED indicates when the phones are on (unfortunately it makes it easier for flight attendants to spot it and make you turn them off during takeoff/landing, silly though it sounds). The on/off switch is easy to find with your fingers and the phones do work if the battery's dead or the switch is off, albeit they don't sound quite as good and of course there's no noise canceling.

As headphones go, these are middle-of-the-road quality, with good bass and moderate high end.

Size Name: 7.70in. x 3.60in. x 1.70in. Verified Purchase
Edit: I've long since used these on an airplane, including a flight from Philadelphia to Tokyo. They did a miraculous job of filtering out the engine noise on the jet, making them even better than i praise them in the initial review below!

-------

I thought that surely i'd be returning these with disappointment but thought affordable, active noise-canceling earbuds would be great if they worked so it was worth the risk. Not only do they work, they work like a miracle. I haven't used these on an airplane yet but i've been finding noisy stuff to test them around. My apartment's A/C is completely muted when these are on, in fact if i leave them on over the course of an hour i can only tell the A/C is on because air starts blowing on me. Normally i have to turn my TV up when it kicks on because the A/C is on the other side of the far wall with the air return vent visible from the couch.

The dishwasher is reduced from its normal volume to a swishing sound, the collective sound of all the apartments in the courtyard outside simultaneously air conditioning is eliminated, and even the white noise generator my wife uses to sleep turns to silence. What these will NOT quiet are sudden noises and high-pitched noises. I've seen noise-canceling headphones that can handle sudden noises but these require the noise to be regular, so talking passes right through. When i run my Roomba, the vacuum motor's sound is removed by the headphones but the wheel motors make a high-pitched whine that gets through unphased. This is because they are earbuds so they can't insulate against high-frequency sounds like headphones can.

These get 5 stars from me because they do what they say they will within the expected limitations of the materials used.

Size Name: ANC27 Over the Ear
While I appreciate user reviews, I forego them when Consumer Reports tests a product. I also consider others (like CNET, PC Magazine, etc.) over Amazon.com users.

For this product, I clipped and pasted CR's report. The Bose QuietComfort 15 and Sony MDR-NC500D were one notch better in noise cancellation, and at $300 and $400 respectively, you should just buy one of them if you can afford it. Otherwise, if you're looking at others, your price point is lower and you prefer a better bargain.

***********************************
CR's Take
This model from Audio-Technica delivers very good sound quality and very good active noise reduction, but the combination on/over-the-ear fit may be cramped for those with bigger ears. These headphones have a closed design, so they will muffle some external sounds apart from the active noise cancellation, and limit the amount of sound that escapes from the headphones. They are best suited for those who want to reduce the amount of noise they hear from their surroundings, or who don't want the sound from the headphones to disturb others, and who are comfortable with the size of a home/studio style model.
Detailed test results
This home/studio-style, over-ear noise canceling model will work with or without the noise-canceling feature being activated, and you can use the noise-canceling feature without listening to music. The audio cable is detachable if you want to use the headphones for noise reduction only. This model has a closed design and electronic noise canceling that reduces both outside noise and sound leaking out into your environment. The headphones have high sensitivity when the noise-canceling feature is turned on, and medium high sensitivity when it's turned off.
