Noise Cancelling Headphone with 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.

- User's Manual (Dec 18, 2012)
PROS: Very comfortable to wear, work well to cancel out noise, compare well against the Bose QC15
PROS: Works as advertised
My only previous experience with noise cancelling headphones was another brand of in-ear ones which were worthlessabsolutely no noticeable active noise cancelling and the sound quality was horrible. I returned them and bought these Monoprice ones.
The sound quality seems fine to me. Sensitivity is fine with my ancient Creative Nano MP3 player. Note: I listen to classical music, but I'm not a super picky audiophile. I can hear the infamous noise cancelling "hiss" only under very quiet conditions. Comfort wise, I think they will be fine, but I haven't used them long enough to be sure. I haven't tried the mobile phone connection mode.
I think these will do the job just great and I doubt I could have gotten anything better for anywhere near this price.
PROS: Excellent noise cancelling
Good sound quality
CONS: The jack for the cord is in a small recess so many normal 3.5mm plugs can't be used. If your cord breaks, you'll have to find the right one to replace it.
PROS: great product for this price point. comfortable, good sound quality, quality construction
CONS: Sound Quality
The headphones are solid and comfortable to wear- even for long periods of time. I've had them on for the majority of a 10 hour flight with no real discomfort.
About the noise cancellation, I dont have a whole lot of experience with the competition, but I can say that I was pleased with the amount of background noise that was eliminated. Airplane engine noise or household fans are almost completely gone when it is turned on. And I like that you can use the headphones without any audio input just for noise cancellation.
PROS: - Lots of accessories
- Comfortable to wear
- Noise cancellation works well enough for me
- Can use noise cancellation without any audio input
- Sound quality is good
CONS: No major issues.
PROS: Works as advertised. Excellent sound quality.
PROS: - Surprising noise reduction
- Powerful, clear and excellent audio quality
- Very good and comfortable design
- It's as good as the most famous headphone brands despite its affordable price
CONS: - No cons
PROS: Great value for the price. They sound as good as the high price competitors.
CONS: Worked great for about a year. Now the left side doesn't work.
Thank you for your review. And I am truly sorry to hear of your experience you have had with this product. For now, if you prefer, I can assist you in setting you up for a replacement on the item if you haven't done so already. We do have a lifetime warranty on cables as well as a 1 year warranty for everything else. It will be of no additional cost to obtain a replacement, so please let me know if you want to continue. I would just require your order# to set it up. Thank you!
I replaced my old Sony noise-canceling headphones with these ones. Compared to the Sony, these headphones do not produce as good quality sound, and they do not filter out as much external noise. That said, they perform well, but just not as well as the pricier set did.
I like the design of the on/off button. It is hard to turn them on accidentally, which was a problem I had with the Sony headset. I would often accidentally push the button on the Sony headset when I was putting them in a bag. With the Monoprice headset, you have to apply a little bit of force to the on/off button.
The headphones are worth the price you pay for them. I would buy them again.
PROS: Appropriate price. Nice sound. Can't accidentally turn them on.
CONS: The ear pieces are small.
