Noise Cancelling Headphone w/ Active Noise Reduction Technology

The world is so full of noise that it can be difficult to find the quiet you need to concentrate or to enjoy your favorite music. When you need to block out the sounds of the world, you need a pair of Noise Cancelling Headphones from Monoprice!

These headphones have been designed to provide superior noise cancellation, leaving a quiet, empty soundstage in which to experience your favorite music. Additionally, they can be used without any musical or audio content when what you need most of all is peace and quiet. The Active Noise Reduction circuity will eliminate almost all external sounds, giving you the quiet you need to think and concentrate.

The ANR circuitry is powered by a single AAA battery (included), which can power it for up to 50 hours. The headphones can also be used in passive mode, without the ANR circuitry enabled, which gives you excellent musical reproduction, while allowing you to hear some of the environment around you.

The headphones come with 55" audio cable with an inline microphone and control module, a 58" standard audio cable with a 90-degree connector on one end, a headphone/microphone splitter for use with PCs, a 3.5mm to 1/4" plug adapter, and and airline plug adapter. They are packaged in a luxury "hardshell" zippered nylon storage case, which includes a nylon mesh internal pocket for the included cables and accessories. The carry case includes a D-ring, which can be used to attach a strap (not included) or to secure it to a backpack.

Pros: Good noise reduction, great price, 1 week shipping, nice zippered carry case with plugs and adapters.

Cons: AAA battery not included. No volume control on headphones.

I have had headphones in the past, but none were noise cancelling headphones. OK, I realized that these are not Bose noise-cancelling headphones when I ordered them but neither was the price ($84.99). I was impressed with the quick delivery (6 days after the order including the weekend) and even more impressed with the nice zippered case with an internal zippered pouch containing the plugs and adapters. A battery (AAA size) was not included and I knocked off one star for that and also the fact the battery is supposed to last 50 hours continuous use.

I am in an office with a noisy server fan and was impressed what a difference the noise cancellation feature made. I showed it to my officemate and he was impressed with the quality, design, and noise reduction feature. He also liked the comfortable padding on the headphones. They appear to be softer than the RadioShack headphones I had for several years where the padding is brittle and starting to crack.

The sound quality is pretty good too. With the noise reduction feature on, I noticed that the volume does not have to be as loud, thus probably saving my hearing. I wish the headphones had a volume control on the headphones itself and that is also a reason I didn't give it 10 stars.

I paid $84.99 for these headphones and I felt that was a good price for the item. I see it is now $115 and I would have been more critical in my review at that price. I would catch them on sale and you'd have a nice set of noise-cancelling headphones.

WOW... terrific value...

Pros: Very comfortable over the ear design, especially for a person with larger ears.
Sound is above average, for an advanced casual listener (not quite audiophile)
noise cancelation seems on par with Bose at almost 3x the price

Cons: better manual/instructions would be useful

So this is my third purchase of noise reduction headphones for a relatively noisy cubicled office with lots of phone conversation noise. The most expensive I've purchased, double what I paid for brand AT which were underwhelming these are more durable (on A-T model, earpiece cover for battery door broke first time I opened it. And more comfortable! I am leaning that background voice noises are NOT what the technology used to reduce noise is for, ideally, but am learning to enjoy. Unlike the A-T's but like the more expensive B's, the Noise reduction system on these headphones DOES seem to cut down the conversational noise around me a bit without turning music on. This is better... and with my playing background music thru my iPhone, the sound is just fine for advanced casual listener. Overall, after about a month of use, a plus and a feeling I did well saving the almost $200 I was going to spend on Brand B. Thanks.

Decent set of noise cancelling cans

Pros: Comfortable, decent noise cancelling

Cons: tight on my head

First off, I am not an audiophile. However, I was impressed by the sound quality of these as pure headphones. I listened to a variety of music via a streaming service on my iPhone. The sound quality was as expected, slightly tinny on the highs, with decent mids and decent bass. However, most of us are not purchasing this as an audiophile grade headphone. I bought these to use on a long flight, as well as to drown out the steady drone of road noise from a nearby highway where I work. The noise cancellation is awesome for the price. I had the opportunity to try these cans side by side with some Bose QCs. I would estimate the noise cancellation on these to be approximately 85-90% of the Bose with the sound quality on music slight less crisp. However for half the price, I can't complain. I've been using them for about 6 months now in my office and my only complaint is that these make my ears sweaty (which all closed cups do for me) and my huge 'noggin (7 3/4 fitted cap) causes these to pinch down a bit. I need to shed these every hour or so for relief.

If you want value, solid build quality, good performance and an awesome case to boot, go for it!

Good but not great

Pros: Good noise cancelling
Reasonably comfortable
Nice case

Cons: Mediocre for music listening, my $6 Monoprice earbuds, and $20 Monoprice "DJ" headphones are much better.

I haven't used these on a flight or in a car yet but for just killing background noise around the house, they work very well. I used them on a phone call the other day and they were OK, similar to an earbud based mic/headphones but a little freaky because (with the noise cancelling turned on) they're quiet. With the noise cancelling on or off, they are pretty much useless for music as far as I'm concerned. They're fine for listening to the spoken parts of a stream or movie.

Nice, but too short-lived and disposable for the price.

Pros: Comfortable
Good noise-canceling, and reasonably good sound quality
Nice carrying case, comes with cables and adapters

Cons: Short-lived

I liked these a lot while they lasted. They provide excellent cancelation for low-frequency noise, so they're especially good on the bus. While I wouldn't mistake them for my Sennheisers, the sound quality is pretty good with the cancelation on or off, certainly better than typical bargain headphones. I found them more comfortable than usual to wear with glasses.

Unfortunately, the right earpiece on mine stopped working a little over a year after I got them...just a bit outside the warranty period. At this price, I expect things to hold up a little better. I always kept them in their case and treated them gently.
