"No discernible noice cancelling"0.5 starson by flykrs1
Pros: Good sound quality, comfortable earbuds
Cons: Active noise cancelling useless
Summary: Obviously the reviewer never tried these on an airplane. The United Airlines provided noise cancelling earphones clearly cut background noise, these did nothing. Other than the sound isolating properties of the earbuds, there was no difference in sound whether the noise cancelling was on or off. I would rate them higher if they were not billed as active noise cancelling earbuds.
