"An exceptional improvement over previous models!"5.0 starson by ShineAgain
Pros: The noise cancelation is simply stunning. When I flipped the switch on in my last flight, there was nothing but dead silence--I simply couldn't hear the plane at all. Sound quality is much improved as well--it is balanced out now!
Cons: The outside mic/sensors picked up the sound of the air blowing on me from above my seat. A minor inconvenience though. I'm not crazy about the case design--it does fit in my briefcase easier, but seems cheaper too. Silver; not gold plane adapter!
Summary: I've owned both QC2's and 3's and a variety of noise-canceling clones...this one does what no other model has done. I repeat, the noise-canceling on this is simply stunning. The sound quality much improved. Even the slight angle change on the cups and the thickness of the cups makes this a no-brainer. Yes, it's $300, but you are getting what you paid for and will simply not be disappointed! I'm a hard-sell...this one wins the prize.
