"These worked for what I needed them for."4.5 starson by goocher88
Pros: Good sound, good noise-canceling on the plane, long battery life. There is a piece to shorten up the cord if needed.
Cons: Cord wind-up is inconvenient. Should have done an attached velcro or retractable mechanism. It gets tangled in the bag too easily.
Summary: This worked well to dull the buzz of the plane noise. There was a noticeable difference (increase in ambient noise) when I would turn off the canceling function at the end of the movie. For me the long cord was a good thing as I had more flexibility in my set-up and with the armrest holding the jack, I would not have been able to bring that closer to me with a short cord.
I had no problem with the bulk of the box holding the battery, as that is also where the clip is located so I just put it on my seatbelt or clothes and it worked fine. And speaking of bulk, being earbuds made them more portable for travel and less clumsy wearing on the plane.
With the canceling on, it was definitely possible to listen at a lower volume, which saves my hearing in the long-term.
All-in-all, this was a much better purchase for me than a $300 pair of over-ear headphones.
