Product Description

Product Packaging: Standard Packaging

Reduce outside noise and enjoy your music more with Maxell HP/NCIV Noise Cancellation Headphones. Maxell's HP/NC-IV uses microphones in the headphones to detect ambient noise. That information from the microphone is analyzed and a precise active noise cancellation wave is generated. When this "anti-noise" wave meets the unwanted noise, the noise is reduced so your music comes through loud and clear. With a full 22dB of noise reduction, the HP/NC-IV offers more than 50 hours of battery life from AA cells housed in the right ear cup. It also comes with a hard-covered travel case. The gold-plated airline and 3/4-inch plugs with a single-entry cord make it easier for users to listen to their music while traveling. You can use Maxell's Noise cancellation headphones to enjoy your favorite music, or to simply block out unwanted noise while traveling. Road noise and airline engine noise can cause fatigue, and using Noise Cancellation headphones can help to reduce this fatigue. You arrive at your destination more energetic as a result. Or use noise cancellation headphones at home or in the office to block out ambient noise to help you concentrate and work more efficiently. The HP/NC-IV also will provide sound without battery power and comes with a 90 day warranty for parts and labor.

This is an update to my previous review. It has now been 5 months and the ear-piece has snapped just above the swivel just like everyone else states here. Now the price tag is even more than it was before and so not worth replacing with the same ones.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm thinking most of these people aren't putting batteries in when they go to use the Noise Cancellation. In fact, the battery compartment is SO WELL HIDDEN that you pretty much have to use the directions. But if you're like me and you toss the directions in the trash the minute you get them -- well then you'll have to look online to see how to open them.

Hint for those of you that like these headphones and want to actually GIVE THEM A TRY with batteries here's how to open the battery compartment:

Put both thumbs in the indentations on the LEFT headphone cup and pull down hard or get a screw driver and shimmy the compartment open. The silver "Maxell" oval (along with the lower third of the headphone cup cover) will come off, revealing where to put the two AAA batteries.

I purchased these at a local retail store for about $60 or $70 (lol Amazons $120 with a slash through it as if they are giving you a great deal makes me laugh). It has a great accessory kit, complete with a semi-hard travel case with detachable Velcro sleeves inside, airplane adapter, 6' extension cord, and . The cords on this product are neat since the outer lining is not plastic but sort of a black fabric type material. I love the case and accessories.

As for the sound itself, the phones sound pretty good and are comfy. Not really any complaints there, but I haven't ever used super high end phones and these are a step above anything else I've had. I primarily got them to use at work to block out other background sounds. With that said, I cannot seem to figure out how to get the battery cover off. The instructions show it just sliding straight down but there is nothing for your fingers to grip and they slight right off. I even resorted to duct taping it to give me something to grip/pull on (note: this was AFTER the headphones broke, NOT the cause of them breaking as I will describe below). I am half tempted to just break the battery cover so I can actually use the sound reducing feature. I am rather annoyed it is this difficult to just put in batteries. Also, I doesn't come with them just fyi.

Lastly, after seeing other reviews and my personal experience, the design/plastic on the headband is a total piece of crap. Mine broke on the left side after about two months. I had only transported it once since the trip home from the store and never dropped it or otherwise put unreasonable forces on it. It just snapped off when I put it on my head (lol and I'm pretty sure I have an average sized head). It wasn't even on a moving part. This kind of quality is appalling.

I purchased 2 sets these primarily for use while traveling so my wife and I can enjoy movies and can listen to CDs and DVDs and actuallly be able to hear what's going one. The Maxwell NC headphones work quite well and for me are great "bang for the buck". Comparing cost, what they do and the value to me, I just couldn't convince myself to spend $300-350 for the Bose or other high-end head sets. I'm not an audiophile so I can't quote db cancelation, frequency response, etc. but they do what I need - filter out a portion of the background noise on a plane. They produce very acceptable sound with a very acceptable frequency range. One feature that is particularly useful is a 3-position volume switch that lets me kick up the puny volume output from my 2 listener DVD player so I can actually hear while on airplanes. Non-NC equipment just didn't let me enjoy movies or CDs. I can hear the actors lines and many of the more subtitle sound effects.

I had a pair of Maxell MAX190400 noise canceling headphones that broke. Instead of replacing them I thought I would try other noise canceling headphones. I bought (and returned) the following: Shure SE210, Sony MDR-NC60, and the Phillips NC headphones from Best Buy. I almost decided to get the Bose headphones, but after reading the reviews I wasn't impressed especially for the price. After much frustration I decided to try the Maxell's again only this time I would upgrade to the Maxell HP/NCIV. These are the best noise canceling headphones. I work in an office that plays music that I don't like. With these headphones I don't even hear the music plus they are comfortable. In my opinion they are much more comfortable and easier to maintain that the "in ear" designs. Great product, don't waste your money and time like I did on investigating other products.

DO NOT BUY!!! DO NOT BUY FROM ELECTRONICS 4 LESS !!! What seemed to be a great value, is a mistake. I love the comfort of the Maxell NC IV [ASIN:B000VSDUSA Maxell NC-IV Superior Noise Cancellation Headphones] I purchased through AMAZON and The SELLER "ELECTRONICS 4 LESS" Enjoying the comfort and sound of my headphones with my ipod. BUT in less than 10 days I went to put them on and the bottom bracket broke. I could not believe it. I keep them in the case and was very carefull with them. To my surprise by POOR DESIGN the PLASTIC BRACKET at the bottom of the METAL ADJUSTMENT which get's all the leverage snapped!! POOR DESIGN on what would be a great piece of equipment!!!! I was so alarmed I read some reveiws "after the fact" and found others who said "will break!!!" DO NOT BUY!!! On top of that so you know AMAZON refers you to the seller even with a 30 day guarantee. What ever happened to the customer is always right!! Here's what you will get from ELECTRONICS 4 LESS!!! with a 30 day guarantee,

Sorry to hear that you accidentally broke the headphones. We have sold many of these and have never had a problem with any of them. Due to the return policy we are not responsible for brand new sealed items that get broken after use. I would suggest contacting Maxell directly to resolve the design flaw that you mentioned.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope the problem is resolved for you soon.

Sincerely,

Electronics 4less
