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.

I travel. Planes, high speed trains, commuting trains, buses and I love to listen music. Not audiophile but I know difference between bad and good equipment. I do build my own speakers, amplifiers and other stuff. But I can not build good headphones, especially NC, this is why I am buying them. Let's concentrate on NC. I have couple over-ears, just for office and I have 4 in-ear. So, you can consider my review as comparison. Candidates: AKG391NC, Sony MDR-NC100D, ATH-ANC23 and Pioneer SE-NC31C-K. As you may see they all comes from different price range and very reputable companies and they are different, very different.

Small introduction. For people who are looking for electronic "ear-plugs". There are no such thing! NC headphones, do not and never will create full external silence, more electronic noise suppression means more audio degradation. They will never silence loudly speaking office neighbor. What NC headphones do best - suppression of monotonic noises, such as airplane's engines, A/C, trains. They do mute bunch of other sounds but do not expect miracles, be real. Hiss? Some reviewers pointing out on hiss sound when there are no audio source. Out of 4 listed above only AKG do not have hiss but let's be real. All other hiss noises are so tiny and considering fact what you are about to use NC headphones on plane which has such high noise level anyway, compare to which this 'hiss' would sound like peaceful heavens (and it's exactly what these NC headphones do).

Let's start from high-end - AKG391NC. Very nice sound, I really do like them but it's just my ears, I can not get proper fit, I tried Comply Foam tips they do help but still as soon as they are little bit moved, quality of sound goes down, to unacceptable level. When they are sit proper sound is fantastic.

Recently I faced the prospect of a long trans-oceanic flight and wanted some compact (preferably earbud-style) headphones with reasonable sound quality and, if possible, some decent noise-cancellation capability. Like all well-prepared travelers, I waited until I'd passed the security checkpoint, and rushed into an airport shop with no more than five minutes to make my choice. I quickly told the salesman what I was looking for, and he steered me towards this model from Audio-Technica. I'd heard the brand name, but had never bought one of their products. I asked him to compare the performance of these to those of Sony and another brand in the shop. (Both were earbuds, with noise-cancellation, at about the same price.) He insisted these performed better with regards both to sound quality and to noise cancellation.

Several thousand miles of ambient aircraft noise later, I can say I'm pleased with the choice. I've tried the noise-canceling phones from Bose (phenomenal, but pricey). These don't perform as well, particularly with regards to noise reduction, but they do a decent job. I couldn't hear a seat-mate speaking directly to me while I was watching "Sherlock Holmes" on the in-flight movie. Sound quality is good, though not great, as well. All said, these 'phones probably give about two-thirds the performance of the Bose model at less than a third the price. Not a bad deal at all. A seat-mate during one leg tried these, and was impressed with the noise cancellation. He later borrowed these headphones for his own use when I wasn't using them.

Conclusion? Wait until you're about to board the aircraft before buying headphones for your trip, and then ask the skinny guy with the wispy mustache for a recommendation. It just might work.
