House of Marley - LEGEND ANC

Uncomfortable, far too much bass, noise cancelling isn't great.

White Lotus

Pros: Nice aesthetics, cheap for an ANC, plenty of bass

Cons: too heavy, sweaty, strong clamp, expensive for what it is, ANC feature doesn't work very well

Couldn't find much on the internet about these, so I took the plunge.     Pros: Nice aesthetics Solid build quality Cheaper than Bose equivalent, looks and feels nicer, has a bassier signature. Great packaging and accessories Nice cables, feel durable   Cons: Heavy Pads are not comfortable, will make you sweaty before too...

Pros: Smaller case - easy to carry, works with any AAA battery, improved sound quality especially in mid range, refined understated design, lightweight

“     Due to my poor skills in writing in English this review of Sennheiser hd380 will be pretty short. Build quality and package: Nice, good quality but only plastic build without any fancy design accents. Seems to be quite solid. Coiled cable is not perfet solution in day to day usage but is ok. Nice hard case for headphones. The included also big jack adapter. Cable can be...” --paweltoja

PSB M4U 2 Noise Canceling headphones

“I bought these headphones a little over a week ago, and thought I should post my impressions. I work in a small office, and sit close to my boss, who is constantly on the phone, so I wanted a noice-canceling big headphone for home and for the office. I first listened to these a year ago and fell in love with the sound, but my wallet didn't allow the purchase, and now I own them, and am very...” --Mr_Owlow

Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

“ I purchased these because my Sennheiser PXC450 were getting too big to carry around once I purchased a larger netbook.  So this review is more a comparison of it and the QC15.   The striking difference is the size - the PXC450 are just massive.  The QC15 on the other hand have cups that just fit around the ears, and are lighter.  The sound quality on both are excellent, but my personal...” --s0126471

“These hurt my head almost right away. The good sound quality is not noticeable when my ears and head hurts. Having said that, the price is low and if you don't like them then just return them. ” --oostrov

AKG K271 MKII Headphones

“I wanted to love these, and I kinda did, but only for classical and jazz.  Everything else though was boring to listen to and can sometimes get a bit bright. Also still has that closed sound, but then again it's a closed can. I know I know, it's more for tracking rather than for entertainment. But there are still some stuff to love about the sound. If you only listen to jazz and classical...” --cs098

“These headphones are extremely expensive! I bought these before I really understood the most important part of headphones, comfort. If I can't wear my headphones, why should I have ever bought them? I thought that the active noise cancelling module and the sound quality would make up for the comfort in the long run. I was wrong, I find these headphones extremely uncomfortable. I have very perky...” --freeryder05

Audio-Technica ATHANC7 Noise-cancelling Headphones

“ 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...” --bedlam inside

Bose QuietComfort 25 Headphones, Black

“For years I have been told by Head Fi members that never get Bose, Bose sucks, Bose is overpriced and I completely ignored Bose. Always managed my long flights with in-ear monitors (Westone 3) but living in NYC, the passive Noise cancelling just wasnt cutting it for me. I always liked the noise cancelling and comfort factor of Bose QC15 but never really thought the sound was fulfilling minimum...” --Nocturnal310

Audio-Technica ATH ANC23 QuietPoint

“ Really excellent for travel, as they're quite comfortable and have excellent noise cancellation for the price. My one complaint is that the cable is a bit short, and makes a good deal of noise. Furthermore, the rubbery plastic coating makes awful tangles in your pocket. Otherwise a fantastic IEM, especially considering the $50 price tag on Amazon right now. ” --Tardisk

Bose QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

Bose QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

“Honestly they are expensive, but extremely satisfying headphones. The noise cancellation works wonders, specially in planes. The headphones have a great build quality although many say they look flimsy, they are actually pretty robust and fit amazingly on the head/ears. The battery life is very good, never ran out of battery and I charge them every once in a while with daily usage of the...” --riqmarmes
