Noise-cancelling headphones that work are always a pleasant surprise. When they cost less than $40 and work with active noise noise canelling, they're remarkable.

The Kensington Noise Cancelling Headphones aren't the last word in noise cancelling by any stretch, but they can take off the droning noise of airplane cabins or other continuous sound sources.

The most you can hope for Noise-cancelling headphones is to reduce some frequencies of continuous noise and perhaps get a small reduction in some kinds of impulse noise. Noise-canceling headphones work by simply sealing out some external noise, then sampling the environmental noise and generating an out-of-phase signal to reduce its intensity in your ear canals and Kensington Noise-cancelling headphones do their job.

The Kensington phones are supraural, meaning that they sit on top of your ear rather than circumaural, or around it, as does the category-leading (and price-leading) Bose Quiet Comfort 2 headset ($299 direct). The soft pads conform easily to your ears and form a good seal, for a measured 6 dB static reduction in outside noise just from wearing them. With noise cancelling switched on, it was measured another 4 to 5 dB of active noise reduction, averaged across the spectrum.

The Kensington headset is smaller, far less expensive, and much more portable than Bose, Senheisser and Sony.

At 5.2 ounces, the Kensington headphones are light and very comfortable for extended wear. An elastic and soft plastic band provides support at the top of your head as well as mild compression against your ears. The sides are adjustable for length and are hinged for compact storage. A switch behind the right earpiece controls the active noise reduction, and a small LED tells you when it's turned on.

These are great sounding for those who use them while traveling on airlines. They fold so they are easy to store in the briefcase. They work either with your mp3 player/ cd player/ computer or the airplane system. Only problem that I have encountered is that they get turned on when in the case, draining the battery. I now remove the battery when not in use, and it is fine.

I have used these headphones on several trans-pacific (e.g., 12-14 hour) flights and they really cut down on jet engine noise. The headphones use a AAA battery to generate some white noise, which itself is not very noticable. You can turn the noise cancelling on or off. When you turn it off, you notice a large increase in the amount of background noise that reaches your ears. Thus, it is clearly effective. It is not as good at cancelling intermittent sounds, such as a noisy conversation, but it does help a little bit with that also. For example, I have to turn off the noise cancelling or take the headphones off to hear the flight attendant ask me which of the two lousy meal choices I prefer. The AAA battery lasts a long time. I used one battery for a round-trip from the U.S. east coast to China (approx. 35 hours of flight time) and that same battery still has power. I have not compared to other headphones so there might be better ones, but I find this one provides satisfactory results. I have used these headphones with my iPod and with the inflight sound systems, as well as with my laptop iTunes library, etc., and the sound quality is good. I prefer the full coverage over the ear to an earbud type of headphone. Your preference/mileage may vary.

Verified Purchase
Overall, while I agree with most the positive reviews out there, I do have a few things to add/reiterate/clarify after using these headphones for the last few months. Before reading this review, understand that I used these headphones soley in airplanes and I believe that is probably where they would shine the most.

Their best feature is their portability. They fold up very nicely and fit easily in my briefcase. If it wasn't for this feature, I probably wouldn't bother trying to squeeze them in there. Either there wouldn't be room or I would be afraid they might break. Unlike a few of the other reviewers, I never had any problems with the headphones accidently being turned on.

The second most important feature is how comfortable they are. If I couldn't wear them for extended periods of time then it wouldn't matter how well they reduced noise. Luckily, on my coast-to-coast flights, I didn't experience any discomfort. That's no easy feat either, because waering headphones typically tends to annoy me pretty quick. In fact, these are the most comfortable headphones I own. They don't pinch my head and they allow my ears to "breathe" since the earpieces don't fit snugly around or in them.

Lastly, they do a decent job reducing the ambient noise on airplanes. Like one reviewer mentioned, they reduce noise well enough but get no where near cancelling it. I used them at first when watching DVDs on my laptop and then took them off when I was done. However the noise difference was so great that I ended up leaving them on even when they weren't hooked up to anything. When watching DVDs, I didn't notice any negative effect on the sound quality and it sounded much better than similar headphones without noise cancellation because it filtered out a lot of the cabin noise.
