Rated 5 out of 5 by ReviewKing Great Headphones!
Great pair of headphones. Reminds me of the Beats Solo by Monster. However, if the battery is not in and the NC is not in the bass is decreased noticeably. My box also did not come with a battery which was a bit odd. These are worth the price right now ($89). Go ahead and buy them they are great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kermit Great noise cancelling headphones!
I've used these headphones for over a week (roughly 25 hours) and I can strongly recommend them. The artificial intelligence feature seems to work well, and I often make use of the Monitor button - it deactivates the NC feature and mutes the audio. Thus, when you are wearing these headphones and someone talks to you, rather than having to take them off, you can just press the Monitor button and have the conversation. Even better, when the annoying Pandora commercials come on, hit the monitor button for 30 seconds and avoid the irritating ads.
To my untrained ears, music sounds good, with just the right amounts of treble and bass.
The engineering is fantastic - they fold up into a small case for easy portability. Battery life is excellent - I got through a whole week of listening for hours a day. Make sure you use rechargeable batteries (1 AAA) to save money and help the environment. And unlike Bose, if your battery dies you can still use them, albeit without the NC.
I use these mainly while reading at coffee houses, but am looking forward to using them while flying, where I expect them to perform very well.
Overall - highly recomended.

This Headphones are the best. When I bought them I needed something to reduce noise when I was travelling every morning in a Van from one City to the other to be able to get some rest. and they worked great. they reduced almost all the noise same as advertised. I don't think the Bose or Beats are better than them this are the best. when I want to listen to music the sound is so perfect I recommend them for anybody

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sniper248 Comfortable and Reliable
Very comfortable. Stylish. Itravel on overseas quite often, in rough environments, and these hold up. The case it comes in is very protective and shiq.They do feel like they cost more than they did. Sony delivers again. These are far more comfortable than former Bose I have experience with. However, i am slightly dissapointed there is no volume adjuster on the cord. It isnt a huge thing, and that is one more thing that could go wrong with a headset, but it sometimes would be nice to have. Atleast as an addon. They do give you a handy airplane jack, so you will be able to use it when flying on vacation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Syndic8r Very nice set of headphones
I got these as a gift to replace a set of Bose QC's I left on a plane after owning them for 8 years. I was pleasantly surprised with these.
Sound reproduction is about as good as the Bose and I love that these can be used powered for Noise Reduction, or unpowered for around the house. Battery life is ok, not as good as the Bose, but again, you don't have to use the battery as often.
The other thing I especially is how these fold up into a smaller case. This case fits much better in my briefcase than the last set did. A definite plus for the frequent traveler.
Aside from the battery life, this is a great set of headphones and I would definitely have anyone looking for noise cancellation and an easy to pack size--especially for the frequent travelers of the world. And it's reasonably priced. I would buy these again.
