Noise Canceling Headphones
I really enjoy them
I'm sticking with these headphones. I record sound effects and sometimes have them on for three or four hours at a time and they are very comfortable. The sound quality is excellent for the price. I have a large head and these fit me comfortably as well as my 8 year old daughter. I love them.

Not noise cancelling, low quality
Cons: Basically unnoticeable noise cancelling and bad quality.
I received these headphones as a gift and upon looking them up and seeing the $50 price tag I got very excited. When I tried them on the first thing I wanted to do was try out he noise cancelling. So I was in the car and I decided to flip on the noise cancelling to see if it reduced the road noise. It did not, now with the noise cancelling turned "on" my music is simply quieter and now I have white noise AND the road noise which seemed to get louder. I later turned on the noise cancelling in a completely quiet room and yes, it just created more white noise. I was very disapointed because it seems as if the noise cancelling feature does exactly the opposite of what it sets out to do. On top of this, the sound quality is not good either. There is very little to no bass and the treble all sounds washed out. As if this all wasn't bad enough, the headphones are very quiet. I'm finding myself turning my laptop or music player to very near the max volume just to be able to listen at a reasonable volume in a quiet place, in a louder place like a subway, you might as well forget being able to hear your music very well at all. Would not recommend for any circumstance. Go spend $50 on any other pair of headphones and you will get a much better deal.

not very sound-reducing
I received these as a gift and thought they would be great to use at college, in the library and around people who would talk so I would not be distracted. These can actually enhance noise. I was very confused when I heard sirens and it an on-off-on-off test without any music playing and was able to hear the sirens with my own ears, but with the headphones it could. Girl's high pitch voices/laughs are painfully sharper/louder using these. I wish they were actually sound reducing and better quality when I listen to music.

Not very impressed
Not impressed with its noise reduction. When I turn it on I can hear a faint hiss. Plus I don't detect much difference in noise reduction. Actually the headphones themselves do more to limit outside noise?
Quality of sound is just OK. I actually think treble is weak at highest end. Muddy bass.
A step up from OE earbuds but not much more.
