I travel. Planes, high speed trains, commuting trains, buses and I love to listen music. Not audiophile but I know difference between bad and good equipment. I do build my own speakers, amplifiers and other stuff. But I can not build good headphones, especially NC, this is why I am buying them. Let's concentrate on NC. I have couple over-ears, just for office and I have 4 in-ear. So, you can consider my review as comparison. Candidates: AKG391NC, Sony MDR-NC100D, ATH-ANC23 and Pioneer SE-NC31C-K. As you may see they all comes from different price range and very reputable companies and they are different, very different.

Small introduction. For people who are looking for electronic "ear-plugs". There are no such thing! NC headphones, do not and never will create full external silence, more electronic noise suppression means more audio degradation. They will never silence loudly speaking office neighbor. What NC headphones do best - suppression of monotonic noises, such as airplane's engines, A/C, trains. They do mute bunch of other sounds but do not expect miracles, be real. Hiss? Some reviewers pointing out on hiss sound when there are no audio source. Out of 4 listed above only AKG do not have hiss but let's be real. All other hiss noises are so tiny and considering fact what you are about to use NC headphones on plane which has such high noise level anyway, compare to which this 'hiss' would sound like peaceful heavens (and it's exactly what these NC headphones do).

Let's start from high-end - AKG391NC. Very nice sound, I really do like them but it's just my ears, I can not get proper fit, I tried Comply Foam tips they do help but still as soon as they are little bit moved, quality of sound goes down, to unacceptable level. When they are sit proper sound is fantastic.

Edit: I've long since used these on an airplane, including a flight from Philadelphia to Tokyo. They did a miraculous job of filtering out the engine noise on the jet, making them even better than i praise them in the initial review below!

-------

I thought that surely i'd be returning these with disappointment but thought affordable, active noise-canceling earbuds would be great if they worked so it was worth the risk. Not only do they work, they work like a miracle. I haven't used these on an airplane yet but i've been finding noisy stuff to test them around. My apartment's A/C is completely muted when these are on, in fact if i leave them on over the course of an hour i can only tell the A/C is on because air starts blowing on me. Normally i have to turn my TV up when it kicks on because the A/C is on the other side of the far wall with the air return vent visible from the couch.

The dishwasher is reduced from its normal volume to a swishing sound, the collective sound of all the apartments in the courtyard outside simultaneously air conditioning is eliminated, and even the white noise generator my wife uses to sleep turns to silence. What these will NOT quiet are sudden noises and high-pitched noises. I've seen noise-canceling headphones that can handle sudden noises but these require the noise to be regular, so talking passes right through. When i run my Roomba, the vacuum motor's sound is removed by the headphones but the wheel motors make a high-pitched whine that gets through unphased. This is because they are earbuds so they can't insulate against high-frequency sounds like headphones can.

These get 5 stars from me because they do what they say they will within the expected limitations of the materials used.

This is a combined review of two of the lowest cost “Active Noise Cancelling” earbuds on Amazon:
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones
Egghead 1010 - Active Noise Cancelling Earbuds with Travel Pouch

PRICE
The price difference as of May, 2015 was $14 with Audio-Technica being the more expensive unit.

IN THE BOX
Both products contain:
--Earbuds
--Multiple silicone earbud cups
--Airline headset adapter
--Carrying Pouch

Audio-Technica contains in addition:
--Battery
--Pair of foam earbud cups. Not memory foam, just normal foam. I have not tried these.

Egghead:
--Mute button: In addition to the ANC on/off switch, Egghead has a nice mute button that turns off Noise Cancellation while it is pressed down.

SOUND QUALITY
I am not an audiophile so the sound from both headsets were good to me but the difference comes when you factor in the fit of the earbuds.

FIT
Both sets sit deeply in your ear and from pictures of both products, you will see that beyond the earbud, they have a circular piece before the actual connection to the wires.
--Egghead: The earbuds are attached straight to the circular piece so the fit is actually straight out away from your ears.
--Audio-Technica: The earbuds are angled forward so the circular piece actually serves as an anchor that sits nicely in your ear lobe and further cuts out outside noise.
