    So I would definitely not recommend getting these only if they are twenty bucks.

    They have a very heavy control in the middle of the cord where the battery goes and it's just impossible to keep the earbuds in my ear.

    'Active' noise canceling in this situation apparently means noise cover-up technology.

    I purchased the SHN2500 Noise Canceling Earbuds about a year ago. I primarily use them when mowing the lawn, so I don't have a wide variety of experiences to relate. However, when using them with a gas-powered mower, I found it to be remarkable how much they reduced the sound of the mower. Without the mp3 player turned on at all, the mower noise all but disappeared; as in, I could barely tell that the mower was even running. With the mp3 player turned on, the device does, in fact, increase the volume of the mp3 output. But with the noise canceling turned on, I could set the volume of the mp3 player to a much lower level than usual and still hear the music quite well.

    So, here's my summary; for lawn mowing, these things seem to work great. No, they don't just cover up the noise by turning up the volume. They can be used without the mp3 player turned on, and the reduction in noise volume is remarkable. I find them comfortable, and the sound quality is fine for me. I'm no audiophile, so I can't comment further on sound quality. As with all earbuds I've used, the cord is too short to wrap around behind me to keep it from getting caught up in my work; I've had the cord snag on the lawn mower handle as I'm turning a corner and rip the buds out of my ears.

    Now, here's something to check; make sure you have a fresh battery in the unit, and make sure you have flicked the switch that turns the sound canceling on. Just because you're hearing the mp3 player doesn't mean the sound canceling is turned on. I'm not saying anyone in these reviews has done that, I'm just advising folks that might overlook that.

    Do these earbuds work in every noisy environment? I have no idea.

    I was intrigued by the design, with the noise-canceling electronics separate from the speakers. I also work in a moderately loud environment, and was hoping to use these to cancel out equipment noise. The noise canceling properties of these are decent, due to the active electronics and the snug fit in the ear canal.

    I tested them for two hours with the noise-canceling turned on and at the lowest detectable volume (1 or 2 on my mp3 player with 1 being the lowest setting). The end result was a terrible ear-strain headache for over 6 hours! I've worn in-ear buds in the past without any problems, and generally don't get long-lasting headaches.

    I might exchange these for an over-the-ear model, but I cannot recommend these under any circumstances.

    I bought my first pair about two years ago and was reasonably pleased with the comfort, sound and noise reduction (I mostly use them when I mow the lawn.) My one complaint is that in less than a year the sound disappeared from on ear. I bought a second pair (both pairs were purchased at Walmart for around $20.00) and again in less than a year, the same failure occurred of loosing the sound from on ear bud. They would be great if they just lasted a bit longer.

    I use these headphones while riding the bus or airplane and they are great for drowning out the background noise. I also like them for using while I'm mowing the lawn - they make almost all the lawnmower noise disappear. I've tried using normal headphones in these places and I need to turn up the volume so loud to be able to hear the music. With these headphones, the volume can be significantly lower and the sound is great.

    With a fresh battery, and the bulky unit supported, they sounded good. The noise suppression worked well. While watching HDTV loud sounds were masked completely.
    But the wiring is flimsy. Within a short period of time, the connection degraded. At first, gently adjusting the position restored connection. But only for a while. Finally, they ceased to function. Out of warranty, of course. And there was no way to rewire them without destroying the unit.
    I do not recommend this model, and would be wary of the durability of thin wiring on other Phillips models.

    The fidelity is marginal, but acceptable. But the active noise reduction is almost non-existent.

    And then it broke apart, refusing to transmit the signals from the unit in the middle section. I had to replace it with a different set.
