For me headphones are something that I buy regularly, besides my usual groceries a always put a pair of headphones on the list (thou not always the same model). Sometimes I prefer the cheep ones because I know that I will have them just for a couple of weeks. Otherwise I choose a more expensive pair for a better quality of sound. I am an active person, and many of my activities are not quite suited for little wire strap to my neck.
I have bought this model two week ago, and they worked very well. The package contains three sizes of silicon caps a thing that I find useful. The cable is just 1.2 m about 4 feet, and I find this aspect very annoying. The ideal length for me is 1.5 m .
About the noise canceling thing is not quite true, but is better than another headphones. I personally like it that way because I don't plan to be hit by a car.
The sound quality is very impressive and the model provides a pretty high volume.
Some of the manufacture claim:
* Ultra thin diaphragm delivers clarity and detail sounds
* Angled Acoustic Pipe channels directional and precise sound
* Exceptional noise isolation for quality sound at low volume
* Ergonomics in-ear design for the best comfort and snug fit
Elegant headphones that suit your style along with soft ear buds for comfortable fit and handy zip pouch that stores headphones and cable neatly. It looks as good as it sounds.
