I have reserved these. I have been looking for decent wireless headphones for my daughter, thanks op

Reserved thanks. Great deal!

Are these any good from an noise cancelling perspective? How do they compare to Bose queit35?

Damn... bought these last week from Argos for £60. Mini review:

I pull these off charge (micro USB) at 6am to leave the house. Play audio books for my walk and train commute for an hour each way, then music about half the time I'm in the office. Turn them off when I get home about 7pm. I've not had a low battery warning yet, so I've got no idea how long they last. There's a detachable analogue audio cable in the box, so I guess you can use them unpowered, but I've not tried.

They are pretty comfortable and not too hot. I wear glasses, so sometimes they start to pinch the top of my ear against the arm, but I just have to lift my glasses a little. They fold flat, so I'm not worried about putting them in my rucksack. I don't think they'd take a serious beating, but I'm not being delicate with them.

Noise cancellation isn't Bose "I've gone deaf!" standard, but it's not bad. It cuts out much of the low thrum of the train and the higher pitched rushing noise of the air conditioning. General background chatter in my open office is less distracting, but the cancellation isn't as strong on the mid-range. Turning the cancellation on isn't massively impressive, you just get a mild hiss. It's more noticeable when you've had it on for a while, but no audio playing and you switch it off. It doesn't kill outside noise, but it definitely takes the edge off.

Audio quality is perfectly acceptable. Far better than the cheap in-ear Bluetooth headphones I had before. It's pretty balanced, so don't expect thumping bass. They aren't particularly bright or particularly warm, just middling.

I've not had any issues with the Bluetooth either. Connection with my S6 has been perfectly reliable and predictable. Certainly better than my car! The controls generally work well. Volume, on/off, noise cancellation and the play/pause buttons are easy to use. Only the next/previous track buttons are hard to work. The microphone appears to be OK too.

If they were wired passive headphones, I'd expect to pay £40 for them. For them to be £35 and Bluetooth, it's a bargain!

Thanks, what with a £5 code I had and the Quidco deal I've just picked these up for £20.

​code please or was it unique. got the quidco deal

These don't have a mic do they? I am looking for some for listening to music but also to take and make phone calls.

Looks a bargain to me. What hi fi give the Philips SHB8850NC 5 stars These Argos headphones appear to be SHB8750NC which as far as I can tell are the same the model just newer? Ordered either way, just gutted I went with Topcashback without seeing the quidco £10 offer! DOH!

It appears they do... or rather my wife didn't notice that she couldn't hear me, but that might be because she never seems to anyway.

Seriously, I have no idea where the microphone is. There are a couple of ports on the top of each cup, but I think these are used for the cancellation. There's a small hole near one of the buttons??? The phone certainly thinks it's a Bluetooth headset. I've only used them for calls a couple of times, one time I was at a busy station and the person on the other end didn't seem to have any issues hearing me.

great review

Argos site buries the model number so this looks more interesting. Works with Google Now / Siri so I'm buying a pair. Thanks OP!

Just ordered a pair.

Guys, remember to use the £10 Quidco bonus! So potentially down to £24.99!

Can't load any other pictures due to bad signal, but can someone tell me if these are over ear headphones or not?

Can someone help at all with this please?

Dad wants some wireless headphones for Xmas. Solely for watching tv whilst moms in bed (they work different hours so he doesn't want noise waking her).

Would these do the job? If so. How would they go about connecting to the TV? Possibly the laptop too.

Thanks in advance.

Will these stop others being able to hear what you are listening to?

ordered with quidco £25 got to be worth it

Another temptation proven too strong for me. I am weak.

Great find, reserved one for my Christmas present. Thanks.

​According to PDF manual that are on ear

​manual says they are closed back so in theory they should reduce sound leakage.

hotukdeal92

Will these stop others being able to hear what you are listening to?



Only because you will not have to turn them up as loud to clearly hear the music - there is no "cancellation" of the sound leaking. I use Nokia NC headphones a bit like these and you can listen at lower volumes... so sort of is the answer to your question.

Noise cancellation only really works up to a few kHz - any noise cancellation above this is usually due to the ear pads - hence the comment above about not cancelling mid-range. This is true of all NC headphones. Those with bigger earpieces that completely encose the ear will provide better noise reduction, but it is not "cancellation"
