This review is from: SOUL by Ludacris SL300WB High Definition Noise Canceling Headphones (Black/White) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What's this?)Overall, I was pleased with these headphones. I've never owned a pair of noise cancelling headphones, so I'm a little handicapped with regard to having something to compare against, but here are my reactions.
I don't know if there's anything to the break-in argument or not. I've had these for about three months, I use them daily to listen to music of all kinds as well as the spoken word. I guess a total of about 80 to 120 hours of use all told.
The noise cancelling works pretty well. I tried wearing the headphones with no music source playing through them and then seeing what happens to various types of outside noise. With a steady low-frequency sound, they work quite well. The humming air-conditioner or a lawn-mower in the neighbor's yard have their volume cut by about 50%. Interestingly, these sources have their frequency shifted to a higher pitch, as well. I could see the SL300WB's being quite useful on an airplane flight to cut engine noise.
Variable noise, like a TV in an adjacent room playing a sporting event is not quite as well-filtered. There is some attenuation, but it's not nearly as effective as with steady tones.
These seem well-made. Removing a side panel to replace batteries or set the hi-lo switch is tricky, but becomes simple once you get the hang of it.

OMG, I was able to COMPREHEND from this review that this "WAS THE 1ST PAIR OF NOISE CANCELING HEADPHONES" so that gave me a fresh buying perspective on this set. Also a quite useful buying decision, UNLIKE "KINDA USELESS" was how I appreciated the reviewer's feeling of wanting to "ADJUST THE BASS AND TREBLE" which had nothing to do with THE VOLUME. Then the reviewer's humble aspect to comfort "as maybe it was reviewer's hot ears" was hilarious and made the decision process fair and subjective. Great review, thanks!
