I got a pair of these from here for the same price just over 6 months ago. They're really well packaged with a carry case including:
A standard 2.5mm jack lead to connect the headphones to the source
The headphones themselves
A gold 2.5mm to 3.5mm jack converter
Batteries

Fantastic sounds quality though, I seem to remember £50 was a massive saving from about £150 when I got them - could have been more. The noise cancelling feature works well and I find it brilliant for when playing drums as it filters out the right frequencies while still providing ear protection, although this does use batteries obviously (or you could just not turn on the noise cancelling and they won't sound quite as good).

The only criticism I have is you may not be able to hear the outside world, but the outside world can hear you. In other words you might get some strange looks if you decide to listen to the little mermaid soundtrack on the train.

Voted hot

No problems :-D

Bought these a while ago and just had a message asking me for my opinion on these headphones and thought id post it here aswell.


Sound wise they're brilliant, the active noise reduction does work really quite well although does consume the battery a little fast, so get a few rechargeable AAA and that's not a problem.

It took me a while to get used to the fit but i suppose that's different for everyone, at first i'd get a headache after an hour or so and have to take them off in place for the cx300 and was thinking of selling them but im not really sure why but i can wear them for a few hours now no problems and forget their even there so i'd give them a chance if you have the same problem as me.

Looks wise i think your in for a treat, the pictures on the net make them look terribly bulky, compared to the DR50's they are tiny, one of the smallest pair i've used tbh.

Few pictures for size comparrison-

(Excuse the dust )

The package they come in is great aswell, 3.5 to 6.3mm adapter, all gold plated cables, hard carry case. Definitely worth £50.

Hope that was some help.

Would these be any good to use as gaming headsets on my PC if I found a good microphone to pair them up with?

Yes.
I use them on a daily basis for listening to music, gaming and general use (Skype etc), on my PC.

They sound great out of the box, but once they are 'burned-in', they sound amazing!
