      Good quality product at a good price

      I bought these headphones because I do a LOT of travelling and flying and wanted a pair of noise cancelling headphones that didn't cost a fortune as I have a habot of destroying any electrical applicance just by looking at it and when I don't do that I lose them.

      What I like about these headphones
      They are quite lightweight for the style of headphones and you don't really notice you have then on. They are very stylish with smart gloss black and chrome ear fittings. Comfortwise they are ok (see what I don't like). The cushioning on the ear pieces is good and you can wear for hours without getting any irritation. The sound quality is superb for a relatively cheap pair of headphones (though don't get excited these are nowhere close to Bose). The cable length is more than sufficient to reach to an MP3 player or the armrest on an aircracft seat. The noise cancelling does an OK job but its not brilliant.

      What I don't like.
      The over the ear style is fine but there are only 3 slots for adjustment meaning that (for my ears anyway) they are either too tight or too loose. Consequently they get a bit uncomfortable for me either way and I then have to readjust them.

      Overall
      I would recommend these headphones to anyone who wants to enjoy their music/films when travelling. They're inexpensive but not cheap, the sound is great quality and they're stylish.
