Product Description

Color: Black

True Fidelity Active Noise Cancelling Headphones. Ideal for creating your own personal space filled with clear sound or nothing at all. True Fidelity Active Noise Cancelling Headphones feature award-winning noise cancellation and sound clarity technology in a basic design that folds down for taking outstanding audio quality wherever you go. They filter out background noise and reduce distortion so you always hear what s in the headphones, not what s going on around you. Enhanced sound quality and speech clarity. True Fidelity s LINX AUDIO technology creates high-frequency harmonics that enhance sound quality and speech clarity of difficult-to-hear words or notes, which increases the perception of loudness without increasing volume. This means you get full, rich sound and better speech clarity even at lower volumes. The right fit for your listening style and your budget. With industry-leading noise cancellation and sound clarity technology, True Fidelity headphones are an excellent value for the price. A lightweight, adjustable headband plus full-size ear cups with soft, swiveling cushions provide hours of comfortable wear. Great for travel, compact True Fidelity headphones fold down into a protective carrying case and come with a 1/8-inch, +-inch, and dual-pin airline adapters, plus a 5-ft. removable cord with in-line volume control for easy adjustment to safe listening levels. Requires 2 AAA batteries (included). Great sound. Comfortable fit. Order True Fidelity Active Noise Cancelling Headphones from Brookstone today!

Noise cancelling works very well.
Alexander T. Bibat
The right ear is loose now from a bit of the plastic snapping, and things are looking grim for the folding section of the headband.

The sound quality on these is great.

I'm an international traveler addicted to noise-canceling headphones. My most frequent travel these days is Houston-Los Angeles-somewhere in Australia. That's a lot of hours with the roar of jet engines. Recently I left my phones at home and couldn't bear the thought of not having them on the 14-hour ride to Sydney, so I visited the airport shop. (I know, not recommended.) I found these Able Planet NC200B phones for the MSRP of $99.99, which is as much as I was willing to pay. They definitely did not make me forget my Sony MDR-NC60's. Here are my pros and cons:

Pros:
1. When the battery was on, they canceled noise...a lot of it. At the end of the day, that was what I wanted and they did a reasonable job of it. On this trip I sat on the 71st of 74 rows. The roar back there is incredible and these phones really made a difference.
2. With the battery on, the sound quality is acceptable. Not great, but decent enough. It won't make an audiophile happy at all, but at 37,000 ft, it is ok. I didn't notice the hiss that some others have reported. The bass is good enough. At home without the noise, the clarity is not great, but on the plane you don't notice it so much.
2. These things are pretty solidly built. They feel and look like they will hold up for a lot of use.
3. The cord is detachable. This is nice on the plane because I can get up, keep them on my head but leave the cord behind.
4. The cord includes a volume control. This was a very nice surprise. (Wish my Sony's had it.)
5. Accessories include carrying bag, double-pronged "airplane" jack and 1/4" "home" jack. I wasn't going to buy something that didn't include a way to keep all the bits together, and this does.

Cons:

I like these headphones... a lot. However, they have some unique signal processing circuitry that some people may not like, so visit the manufacturer's website (ableplanet.com) and do a little research before buying.

I grabbed these at Costco on a whim. I've owned noise canceling headphones in the past, but wanted another pair to throw in my briefcase. It was only after I took them home that I read about Able Planet's "Linx Audio" technology, which is designed to create harmonics in the upper frequency ranges. The idea is to make speech and music more intelligible, and improve the listening experience at lower volume levels.

After decades of loud rock music and concerts, and motorcycle road racing, I have a little bit of tinnitus, but my hearing is still very strong across the frequency spectrum and my high-range is as good as many people who are twenty years younger. (Several years ago, I started wearing earplugs when riding a motorcycle or going to a loud show.)

I've found that I really can listen to music -- from Gershwin, to the Allman Brothers and Jimi Hendryx, to Ultravox and the Dead Kennedys -- at lower volumes, but still get good sound. A couple of reviews have complained about poor bass response, but it seems pretty tight and accurate to me -- though I'm sure it wouldn't appeal to someone who drives a car with a trunk full of subwoofers and amps.

Listening to "She Said, She Said" by the Beatles (via Pandora on my Droid, with a standard quality audio stream, not HQ) while writing this review, I noticed that the cymbals seemed a little more prominent that I remember them, and the vocals seemed to have a bit of a boost. I'm in a busy coffee shop, and can barely hear the espresso machine and other noise with the music at a moderate volume level.

I got these as a Christmas gift last year and I noticed right away that the noise canceling was pretty loud - hissing/buzzing. Later the right ear went out completely. I finally sent these back to Able Planet recently and they sent me a brand new pair free (lifetime warranty)! I think they improved the design a bit since the first pair. The folding action is much smoother now, and the place where the cord connects is now a standard port where before it was a custom-shaped plug that fit into the earpiece. The best improvement, however, is the noise canceling. I don't know if I had a defective pair before, but I think it's much better than the other pair I had. There is only the very slightest buzz/hiss when you have NC on, which is inaudible when you have any music playing. Unlike a lot of headphones I've tried, they are pretty comfortable - and I have a big head and extremely sensitive ears. I can wear them for a couple hours without much of a problem.

I appreciate reading user reviews whenever I purchase a product like this, so I felt the responsiblity to also leave some feedback. If you're looking for a solid noice cancelling headphones, these certainly meet the criteria. They will not be of the quality you'll get from Bose, or some other $250+ headphones, but they are worth the money. I would recommend for sure. They fold up nicely, but only downfall (if you can even knock it for this) is the case for carrying. I would prefer a little bit harder case, but it's a soft fabric bag. It works, but not ideal. Overall, the headphones are great for the money!
