Verified Purchase
If Bose's "Quiet Comfort" was the only game in town, a useful but dispensable item like noise canceling headphone probably would have remained a luxury item that's beyond my reach. Luckily, the ultra greedy Bose is not the only player. Kensington's entrance into the noise canceling headphone arena took a completely pragmatic and value-centric approach - quite refreshing when contrasted with the THREE HUNDRED DOLLAR QuietComfort, which more or less do the same thing as Kensington's 33084. The biggest bone some users seem to have with 33084 is the complaint that the headset amplifies internal noise, such as tape hiss. I have no way to verify if the claim is true. But for most people-myself included, this would be a non-issue. I have used 33084 with my iPod, laptop, as well as plane audio system. For all these common systems, mechanical movements are minimal or negligible. The noises from these sources are practically non-existent to begin with, and 33084 certainly did not amplify any noises for me. However, if you're really old school and insisting on getting your tune fix from a hissy old tape deck, I don't think any headphone will pretty up the audio quality of granddaddy walkman to CD level. The actual noise cancellation part is also very decent. I've used the headphone on planes as well as next to an operating dryer, ambient noises do drop to a very comfortable level, while the music is maintained at near-original quality. Another thing I like about these headphones is the fact that they have very decent bass. The only fact I don't like about these headphones is the placement of the on-off switch. As another reviewer has mentioned, the on-off switch gets toggled in the bag too easily. But at less than 10% of Bose's price, I ain't complaining.

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.
