Hello From Seattle,

I did a search and didn't see this.

I will be receiving a pair Of Klipsch mode M40's as a replacement for a set of x10i's {dead mic} on Wednesday. {medical issue, ear phones = ouch}.
This is my first pair of active noise cancelling headphones.

Normally my pre-use exercise routine is:

Fully charge my iPod classic 160gb, set it on shuffle, put the volume at about 35 %, go to all songs, and hit play, leaving the headphones on a pillow.
After the iPods battery expires, I unplug the Headphones, letting them "rest" while the iPod Recharges, then repeat this at least 3 times total, about 90 Hours minimum.
I do this before i listen to them the first time. Sure, I try them on, but I've long been convinced {placebo? maybe} that there is a difference,

There was in the HD 280-Pro, The x10i and in the Shure scl5's. So short question long:

Active noise cancelling ON OR OFF during my pre-use exercise routine?




If you like, I could post my thoughts on these in a month or so.

Leaving noise canceling on when not wearing the headphones is a bad idea. Without your "melon" between the ear pads the mids might pick up the sound from the ear cups and that can create some ugly feedback.

For the drivers to get a workout, the noise canceling has no effect.
