"Good enough for me!"4.0 starson by cdebel2005
Pros: Noise cancellation is doing a good job by cancelling a lot of ambiant noise. The sound is good enough for me. Comfort is good. I like the iPhone chord.
Cons: The price is high. The noise cancellation is doing a good job, but not perfect.
Summary: First thing i want to mention is that i'm not an "audiophile" or heavy music user. I'm just the average person who listen music occasionnaly (maybe 1h-2h per day).
The reason why i bought this model is the noise cancellation. Noise Cancellation on that model seems to work quite well with low frequencies, but as soon as the frequencies are a bit high, you ear it. So from the tests i've done:
- it cancel noise from engine, computer fan, TV, and should work well at cancelling Air Conditionner noise.
- If you plan to buy this model because you think it will cancel babies cries, kids screaming, or even some people talking arround you at normal voice level, bad news: This model won't do the job.
I work at home, my girlfriend also got a daycare at home, i have 2 youngs kids. This is mainly why i bought this model, and it fail on that and that's why i give them a 4 star instead of 5.
It will attenuate the high freq noise a bit, but not that much.
For low freq sound, it's really impressive how good this model handle them. So if you are in that kind of environment and want to save your ears by listening music at low or average volume, this model will be good for you.
