I have to give these high marks because its been 6 years and I still have and use these headphones. They've been great on long plane rides or when I don't want to bother anyone at home with whatever I'm listening to.
These are pretty nice headphones. They don't actually look quite as nice as they do in the picture here, but they're pretty nice. The sound is really, really surprising. The bass is better than both the speakers I have hooked up to my computer, and the non-noise canceling headphones that I had on my desk already. The only other noise canceling headphones that I have tried are the Bose ones, which is way better, but also way more expensive, so I can't say too much about the cancellation. I haven't tried them yet on a plane or anything, but I thought that the noise cancellation was a little disappointing, but as I said, I'm not an expert on this - this might just be standard for headphones in this price range. They are very comfortable, though. Overall, I'd say I'm pretty pleased with the purchase - I'd say it was worth the money.
I'm very disappointed in these headphones. With the power turned on there is a rumble in my ears whether music is playing or not. Very annoying, even uncomfortable. With power turned off the rumbling stops but the sound quality is no better than a cheap pair of regular headphones. Overall the fit around the ears is quite comfortable. The manufacturer won't honor the 1 year warranty because I didn't buy them from an "authorized dealer" - whatever that's supposed to mean. Shouldn't all new products be covered by the manufacturer's warranty? Why should they care who they were purchased from, as long as they are new. Am I missing something here? So I'm stuck with an $80 pair of headphones that work no better than a $30 set and I've got no recourse. I say, steer clear of these.
I purchased the "Plane Quiet Platinum" noise-canceling headphones several months ago and decided to an extensive field test before writing this review. I live in Costa Rica, and do a great deal of airline travel each year on business... Prior to purchasing this set, I did a good bit of research online, and then decided to purchase the "Plane Quiet Platinum." And, I am extremely happy with my decision... I have enjoyed countless hours of enjoyment with this set, and find the noise canceling component to be excellent. The sound quality is great... Traveling internationally typically, I wear them for long periods of time and find them to be very comfortable,indeed... The fit is very comfortable, and they fit over the ears making a great seal. They are sturdy, and come with a nice carrying case that is handy for travel. I have had them for about six months, and have yet to need to change batteries(most of my flights are 12 to 15 hours). Lastly, the vendor, Quiet Travel Sound & Gear, provided outstanding service, and were there when I had couple of questions...Great service, wonderful headphones, a winner!
Decent product in its time, but with newer technology, you can do better. There is a "rumble" (more like a irregular "thud") maybe caused by pressure waves beyond the suppression range, that may occur in travelling vehicles like trains and planes
