Preface - I'm also a semi-audiophile (I like quality, but it doesn't have to be pin-drop precise at every frequency so long as no significant segment is muffled/overpowered-off-the-spectrum) looking for noise-cancellation when my environmental noise consists of laundry machines or loud ventilation. I test my headphones by connecting the two I'm comparing onto a splitter and listening to both their R audio channels at the same time. For this review, I compared these to the ATH-ANC23 and the Bose QC20 with and without noise cancellation turned on.
Right off the bat, you'll notice that the battery pack is thinner, smaller, and unobtrusive (but also cheap-plastic-looking/feeling), and charged by microUSB. And they left a respectable 6" of cable between the battery and the jack, immediately making the design better than the Bose QC20 (but it's not an L-jack). Furthermore, while they come with ear-fins meant to secure them, they're modular (separate from the tips, unlike the Bose) so you can remove the fins altogether should you not need them, especially if you're already used to in-ears (like me). The black silicone fins definitely add a premium feel, without them the cheap-looking hard plastic underneath is revealed. Basically, everything except the battery module looks and feels premium.
The cable leading to each earbud has the same problem as the ATHs: they are grippy and noisy. Anything that brushes against it is heard (not the case with the Bose, nor my usual Zero-audio Carbo tenores). Also, while they're in your ears, more people will notice the aluminum exterior + green LED in each earbud. While this ~looks~ cool, I'm not the type to ~want~ to advertise that I'm wearing techy noise-cancelling earbuds and I can't help but suspect that the battery life could be improved by excluding these LED's (it's not like I can check their status while I have them on...). The instructions also weren't particularly helpful (no explanation as to what the LED indicator should be once charged), but they're so simple to use that I guess an instruction manual was kind of superfluous anyway. Oh, and these don't have a clip (not that I ever used them on the ATHs for anything but wrapping the cord after I'm done using them).
Unlike the Bose, these sound fine without noise-cancellation turned on (Bose are practically unbearable without noise-cancellation because they rely so much on the built-in DAC just to output normal volume). Also unlike the Bose (and like the ATHs), these have a pretty even response across the spectrum (while the Bose were lacking in the mids and had muddy bass reproduction) with minimal sibilance. Because you can get a good seal with aftermarket tips (despite the connector being slightly ovular), these isolate noise pretty well even with noise-cancellation turned off. Again, you'll notice the boost in ~volume~ the moment you turn on the noise-cancellation, take that how you will. Furthermore, while noise-cancellation is on, there's minimal white noise much like the ATHs (unlike the Bose), so these will be appreciated even in spaces with small amounts of background noise. These grossly (i.e. not measured with any instruments/tools) cancel about as much noise as the ATHs.
I got a meh seal with the provided tips (my ears are typically a medium) and had to use aftermarket ones (I recommend JVC's Spiral Dots, though depending on your ear shape, you might prefer Spinfit CP100M if the rest of the earbud itself rubs against your ear because of the shorter tip). While I appreciate that the battery module acts kinda like a DAC, it artificially boosts the volume of what you're listening to. I'm growing suspicious as to if they used that to factor into their 20db noise-cancellation claim (this isn't the case with the ATHs). They also don't cancel as much noise as the Bose, but Bose definitely achieves their 40db noise "cancellation" claim by also using some white noise, which is cheating in my book.
I love the aesthetics, modularity, audio quality, and price, especially considering it provides a pretty good amount of noise cancellation. Time will tell if the battery life continues to be as they claim but as of right now, I'm a satisfied customer.
tl;dr: Better bang for your buck than Bose (15% the cost with more than 60% the noise cancellation + more usage scenarios cuz less white noise than Bose), basically a more modern-looking ATH-ANC23 with a smaller battery pack sans clip.
Where as the BOSE cancels out almost all low droning frequencies and you only hear the faint hiss of the air whirring (imagine the flight cabin air conditioning vents pointed at you) the TaoTronics only mask frequencies in the middle. You still hear the low drone from the engines as well as the high hiss. It does nothing for people talking around you. Music levels have to be set high to drown everything out which leads to fatigue. Overall, it does nothing to put me in my zone and to tune everything out.
The BOSE doesn't sound fantastic but it's definitely pleasant. There's enough bass and vocals and highs are relatively smooth and enjoyable. The TaoTronics sound tinny and there's almost no bass at all. I have a pair of $12 earbuds that sound better than these.
The controls are hit and miss with my iPhone. Sometimes the volume works and sometimes they don't. The buttons also have a lot of play and generally feel cheap. But I do like that the battery pack is smaller than the QC20i.
I'm going to return these because I have regular isolation earbuds that work just as well and sound even better.
