I had never owned noose cancelling headphones before and I'm thrilled I purchased these. I was a bit nervous when ordering because of reviews saying they weren't good for people with large heads. I wear a 7 5/8 fitted baseball cap and these fit great on my head. I can see how if you do have VERY large ears the cushion may lie on your ear instead of around them and that would get a bit uncomfortable after longer listening periods. I'm not dumbo but I do have larger ears, these were still great. The instructions left a touch to be desired but after playing around with them the controls are intuitive and easy to use for skipping tracks and volume control. The battery life ROCKS! I was skeptical of a 20+ hour operating life on a charge, of anything it's longer than that from what I've seen in my first 2 weeks with them. Noise cancelling works well but I have nothing to compare them to. It cuts down on the consistent background noise of a train or plane beautifully. They also permitted me to sleep with a rambunctious child behind me on my flight to Europe. Conversations around you can still be heard with just noise cancelling on but adding in low level music cuts through any ambient conversations nicely. Sound quality was a little bit of a bummer for me but is still great. Bass can be muddled at higher volumes and the highs aren't quite as crisp as I'd like. That said, still an upgrade from any earbud style headphones I've had (my dog chewed up my Bose Soundsport Frees).
At the price, these are outstanding headphones. Equally important, I had a problem with a pad and their service department (in Conn.) was prompt, polite, and very helpful This level of service ought to be known.
Great headphones for it's price. I had a pair of SOL Republic HD headphones for the longest time and I didn't realise how terrible the sound quality was until I bought these Sennheiser. The noise cancellation is okay, you'll block out most amibent noise but it works. The battery life is also great, I haven't charged them since they arrived! I definitely recommend these to anyone!
