Let's start with the good.
1. The sound. The sound is absolutely stunning. I am not an expert, but do have several pairs of high performance earphones, including Klipsch image X10 and X5. After a side by side comparison, Phiaton came in as a winner. The bass is well balanced, highs and mids are exceptionally defined. The whole thing is very, very listenable.
2. You can listen to music even without having noise cancelling option turned on. The volume and quality of sound drops just a tiny bit, but it is still pretty good.
Now the bad.
1. These little things are very light weight, have a noise cancelling box half way down the cord. The box isn't much bigger than the AAA battery that it holds. The positioning of it is unfortunate, however. When I run with these, it I have to hold my iPhone in hand, instead of putting it in the pocket, and that gets old.
2. Poor fit. While they create a good seal, my left ear got very sore after a two hour run with the earphones.
3. The general construction of the earphone: flimsy. These are definitely not designed for longevity. The first day, the little rubber seal between the back of the earphone and the silicone ear tip came off. I put it back, but it will not stay where it needs to be. Also, the gold colored wire that holds the earphone to the cord, doesn't feel very durable. And these do not tolerate sweat very well. I wonder how long it would take me to corrode the wire... I will keep you updated.
In a nutshell... If you want excellent sound, but don't care about other things, these are for you. I decided to keep them, even if for airplane travel, as the noise cancelling feature is very adequate. Happy shopping!

- Very effective at blocking ambient noise. I used the PS20 NC while traveling on an Embraer Regional Jet (which is a loud plane) , and they were very effective at blocking all of engine noise.
- Overall sound performance is very good, especially at this price point. The PS 20 NC have both solid bass and smooth performance across the entire frequency range.
- Efficient Earbuds - full volume on my iPad produces plenty of sound, in fact if they were any louder they would be *too* loud
- The biggest drawback is that the PS20 NCs can be uncomfortable in your ear. I can use the PS 20 NCs for a couple of hours before they begin to feel a little hard in my ears and require me to take them our for 5-10 minutes.
- I did use a 50 hour break-in period prior to reviewing the earbuds. I broke them in by playing a variety of music (Top 40, Country, and Jazz) at about 80% of my iPad's volume.
- One of the features that I really like is the pass through mode. The battery module has a button that allows all outside sound to pass through (and into) the earbuds. This makes it easy to silence your music so that you can ask/answer questions or to hear anything in your surroundings.Read more ›
Reason I ended up buying these were price (good deal), expected quality of sound, size and weight of the noise cancelling unit itself - and they looked quite nice comparing to many other models I read about. Also the promise about 95% noise cancellation was very appealing.
My main concerns were about the quality of the materials, how they fit and feel in the ear (when using for a longer period of time), how well they really cancel the noise and the length of the cord/cable.
I still have not had a chance to use them in a train or airplane. But I have used them in a noisy office environment, so I think I pretty good idea about the features and abilities of these. So here's my verdict.
- The sound quality is really good. This is among the best (in-ear) headsets I've tried. And what I like very much is that the sound quality is as good with and without the noise cancelling turned on. Ability to use the set even without noise cancelling turned on is a very good and appreciated feature.
- There are four ear pieces in the package - and I found easily a well fitting pair from the package. I've used them long periods of time (eg 5 hours) without problems or my ears hurting one bit. There are individual differences of course, but for me these worked really well.
- The cable length (and position of the noise cancelling unit) works well. I am a very tall guy, and even I can place the cancelling unit on a belt, and the cord won't yank the ear pieces out of my ears. I am pretty sure this won't be a problem to most.Read more ›
