I am approximately half as productive as I used to be.
I bought these headphones to create a quiet personal space in a very distracting environment, and I have to say these have been hand-down the best investment I’ve made!
Don’t expect noise cancelling headphones to make all sounds go away: they don’t. And honestly, you don’t want them to.
Putting them on my ears with the button off, they already provide nice isolation. They are the most comfortable on-ear headsets I’ve ever owned, and I can wear them straight for a 9 hour day without sweaty ears or pain. Turn the switch on, and the magic happens: everything, including my own voice, is greatly muted. Turn on some music at a very low volume, and it’s only me in the office.
Listening to music and switching the noise cancelling circuit on and off, you’ll notice that the bass is boosted slightly with the noise reduction on. Audiophiles will probably complain that this colors the music a little bit, and they are correct, but I have to say that I love the sound.
Low frequency noises (loud motors, air conditioners, speech, airplane and vehicle rumbling), are nearly completely gone. As a test, I sat in front of my home theater with an action movie going with a lot of explosions and low bass rattling the windows, turn on the headphones and it sounds like a inoffensive tinny TV. Turn on some music at a low volume, and I can read in peace and not even notice the movie is playing.
I have no complaints at all about this unit. It’s got cables and adapters to plug into anything, the carrying case is excellent, sound quality is great, comfort is simply amazing, sound reduction is perfect for what I needed, and the price is right. You will not be disappointed!
But I just returned from a trip to Chicago and the headphones have basically become worthless. The slightest bump (from one’s hand, the back of the seat, whatever) sends them into a cacophony of distorted sounds. Sometimes the sound returns to normal after I turn off the noise cancelling for a few minutes and switch it back on, but then the slightest knock sends them off into their ear-piercing distortion. Other times, the noise cancelling fails completely. I have never dropped the item nor banged into anything; the noise cancelling function just went haywire without reason.
Yes, they still work without using the noise cancelling function, but that is not what I purchased these headphones for. Besides, I could buy regular headphones that sound far better for far cheaper. So be forewarned: expensive headphones like these should last through multiple uses over several years at least, but these couldn’t even get through three trips. Avoid this product.

I can say I am very impressed with these headphones.
They come in a nice quality zipped semi-rigid case with a separate internal bag for spare batteries and cables that can be removed (held in the case by Velcro).
They're very comfortable to wear (I have a small head but still needed to extend the well-made adjustment slightly. The headband adjusters are strong and do not show any tendency to 'self-adjust'! I am quite careful with all my gear, but I think the headband might actually stand up to a certain amount of abuse.
The cups sit around the ears neatly and comfortably - I have small ears and they are a close fit - it does make me wonder if someone with elephant ears would find these to be more of an 'on-ear' headphone.
The battery fits easily in through a rotating ''panel' on one of the earpieces. Hopefully the panel will not 'self-open' during use by leaning on a pillow during a flight etc and the hinge will stay attached - if there is any potential area for a breakage it might be that panel hinge, but overall these headphones strike me as being well built with nice materials.
The leads are very good quality and fit into the earpiece with a good positive 'click' ...And stay there.
The sound quality for all genres of music (Classical through Jazz to Heavy Rock) stored on my iPhone is very impressive right across the board, with a full rich bass and good detail.
Some of the other reviews suggest that the bass is a little overpowering and I have to agree with that, however I have downloaded a very, very good graphic equaliser app that I run my music through called EQ 10. This little app is worth every penny (£1.79 I think) particularly if you are using bluetooth speakers and listening to different types of music as I do. That app has transformed the sound of my Anker Bluetooth speaker which I have also recently reviewed. This app certainly helps 'open up' the sound on the Monoprice phones, without losing any of the rich bass.
Before deciding on my purchase, I watched (and listened) to a very good review of these Monoprice headphones on You-Tube where they are compared with the Bose Quiet Comfort equivalent and were very impressive in that they certainly could hold their own against the Quiet Comfort phones. I was so impressed that I decided I would give these a try.
The Bose option has been one I have considered in the past but I have been put off by the price (about three times the price of these Monoprice phones) and some reviewers saying the headband on the Bose was fragile or 'prone to breaking'.
I have to say that in terms of performance, these phones do come very close but I would suggest the Bose might be more refined - but not refined enough to make them worth the extra £100, when these are available at such a competitive price in comparison!
I would say that the volume could go higher, but at least you are less likely to damage your hearing with them as is easily done with some phones.
I have not yet had the opportunity to use these in a noise environment (I have bought them for use on long-haul flights) but will try and update this review on their performance once I have been on my travels later this year.
Sound leakage FROM the headphones is pretty big - sitting in the house listening to music with them is very easily audible to anyone around you - I don't know how noticeable this will be (if at all) to someone sitting next to you in an aircraft environment who might NOT be listening to their own music/film. Again I will update on this later.
So to conclude this with Pros and cons...
Pros: Bargain price; Nicely comfortable; Seem well made from good materials; Lovely full rich sound with good detail; Can be (and have been!) compared to the Bose Quiet Comfort against which they can hold their own.
Cons: None of these cons are deal-breakers but... Battery door might be a weak-spot; Bass might be too much for some, but using a graphic equaliser app such as 'EQ 10' significantly 'opens up' the Monoprice phones and improves the sound - not really a con, but it's something else I needed to buy (£1.79) in order to lose some of that bass; Quite a lot of sound leakage can be heard coming from the headphones which in some circumstances may disturb others.
I expect the Bose version is better. But for the money I have no complaints at all. OK - pointwise:
Noise Cancelling: Powered off, these knock out about 50% of the background noise just by passive muffling. Powered on, I would say they knock out 90% of the "background drone". You can still hear people talking and car engines and other specific noises. But the reduction in the background drone of the train ride and the traffic in London is amazing. This background noise is what grates so I'm very happy. This is not a full sensory deprivation experience - but i think it does the job.
I have not noticed any "hiss" generated by the noise cancelling circuit as another reviewer mentioned.
The sound quality is OK. Again, no complaints. I have no better headphones to compare against and I'm not a music buff. The only complaint I have is perhaps they lack sensitivity - on full volume with the circuit powered, I cannot blow my eardrums out - but it is sufficiently loud most of the time. With the circuit shut down the volume drops back quite a bit and that might be a problem.
I do also notice that the local circuit changes the characteristic of the sound quite markedly - this can be compensated for with the MP3 player's equaliser if you have one - but I would have expected a flatter response.
Comfort - very good on the head - sits lightly on the ears with a good padded head band.
Storage - very nice semi-hard case to store them in.
Overall, I rate these as excellent for the money and probably good enough for a lot of usage scenarios. If you are super fussy, you'll probably want to look at something costing a lot more, but I personally could not justify the extra for Bose or Sennheiser.
Sound- well respected and can handle most genres.
Built- looks durable enough as i use it on a very loud environment.
earcups/headband.- very soft. the headbands however is a bit stiff on top compared to the very soft qc15's... Give it a day and you'll get used to it.
Noise cancellation.- says 92%. in reality i can honestly say its around 65-75.
lastly- very minimal sound leak.
for the price its a good everyday substitute from bose QC's!
Built-quality: Very Good
Sound: Could be better, a bit flat (expected more by the size of the drivers)
Comfort: Very comfortable and easy adjustment
Active Noise Cancellation: Here the problem starts, the cancellation itself is very good (much better than my JVC HA-NC120 and works perfectly on the plane) though there is one big issue the HEADSET GENERATES NOISE itself (sort of an amplifier noise) which is VERY ANNOYING at low level of volume what should be the main selling point for an Active Cancellation Headset. So it removes noise well ...yet adds some noise.
Overall a decent headset for the money if only the generated noise would be lower!
