These are not the best headphones for strictly removing ambient noise. They work great if you are listening to music, you won't be able to hear anything else around you. If you want to just cut down on the noise without music I would recommend Bose QuietComfort, them seem to be the best for creating complete silence.

Ask all the those people who bought a black macbook for $100 more than the same white version! People pay for style, fashion, and color! Yes it's the same product, I checked with Audio Technica.
