Pros: Noise cancelling, easy to drive even from Phones, good sound
Cons: can sound slightly nasal, somewhat dark tonal balance
Unlike the rest of the headphones here they do have a secret weapon. Noise Cancellation. If you sit in the tail of the Airplane, there is a lot of noise. These headphones cut the roar down to a loud whisper with noise cancellation engaged. It makes all the difference. Noise cancelling is not perfect, but it places you in a bubble of quiet with your choice of music while the modern world is screaming its technological head off. You can now sit next to a screaming baby and just engage the noise cancellation…well not quite but you get the gist.
Without the noise cancelling I would consider this a slick pair of ‘Cans’ with good, if by no means exceptional performance. On the plane, train, bus or in a noisy street they are what an ice-cold drink is to a muggy august afternoon stroll down Nathan Road in Kowloon, Hong Kong (moisture 80%, temperature 38 Celsius); calming, relaxing and way kool.
