If they're anything like the GX200 in ear headphones, these will be awesome - HOT!

I can vouch for these, got a pair last time they were on special from play, bout the same price i think. Best headphones I've ever had with the noise reduction on, never heard anything like it! the battery life is good and it comes in a very sturdy case as well. There are a few reviews about it and they are all excellent and pretty acurate.

Without the reduction they are still pretty good but the battery life is pretty long, i never use it without.

Reps for the find.

I'm pretty sure these would beat Bose sound quality wise, Goldring make some top headphones (DR150 IIRC are reputed to be close to the HD6XX series from Sennheiser.) - See head-fi.org.

Cheaper than Bose, almost definatley sound better, and great if you aren't into the blocked up ear canals sensation with canal phones or in ear monitors.

gotta say I have a pair and they really aint all that, if its noise cancellation you want get the head-direct re2 for a cheaper price.
The sound rapidally changes when the noise cancelling buttons on I would advise people to really think about these as they are ok but not great

fyi I have shures, soundmagic, goldrings and unfortunately bose in ear so I kinda know what im on about

Just ordered one... wanna get them 6 months ago and it was over £100... this is a highly recommended headphone on most review

Decent price but it was sightly cheaper 2 months ago....

I got them last time around, too. I must say that I wasn't blown away by the sound. They sound good, but not as great as I was hoping (for £50, they;re worth it - comes as a nice package).
As for noise cancelling, I do agree that when switched on it rapidly changes the sound 9and increased hiss sound) ..........in a noisy room they seem very good at cancelling out lower register 'bass' sound and not as good at midrange or vocal noise. Oh, you also get more of a hiss when activated.

Ive got nothing to compare them to, so not an expert - these are just my observations

this is a pretty good deal, though

i got these when they were last £50 from play - to follow above sound without noise cancelling is flat but bassy and quite detailed sound with noise cancelling on they suddenly become thin and tinny and lose the good bass responce they have when turned off - so both a compromise

Are these any good for portable players or are they too big??

How are these with an ipod?

Voted super hot!:thumbsup:

These phones for £54 smackaroos is a steal, going by the reviews like this one by Audiophile Audition ]http//ww…232

would this be any good to cancel out noise from noisy neighbours (bass etc.?)

Yes - as I said in my earlier post, they seem very good at cancelling out low, rumbly sounds in a room. That's what they seem good at, more so than conversations and other higher frequency noise.

I bought these with the last deal for my Ipod Touch and was really impressed with them. Great sound and nice when on the train or bus to cancel out all the background noise

Got these for £50 last time round. Used them on a flight to New York and back. What a dream, the drone of the engines is almost gone!

They do leak, so that those around will know what you are listening too if you play it loud. Obviously not on a plane though!

They have a separate lead that you could replace if you get a break - very handy!

I'd recommend them. They come in a carry case that can slip in a bag no problem, so are pretty portable.

Quality item.

Can anyone who owns a pair please tell me if you only get a 1.8meter cable? Or a shorter cable? I wanted it for my ipod and didnt want a long cable! Thankyou

got last time on offer
used on a flight to bangkok and got 7 hours kip (personal record) but was in bizness class
great on a plane

for me the difference in sound between the two levels is just way too much, I have burned them in for 100hrs but they still dont settle down

for an ipod I would say get yourself an amp as they sound a lot better, I just honestly dont rate them dont expect too much but I guess you could do worse also the noise leakage is very noticable

regards

I bought these mainly because I'm going to be flying to Aus and want to cut out some of that engine noise. I believe they will do that job excellently as bass sounds vanish when you turn on noise cancellation. Be aware though as others have mentioned the sound quality changes noticebly when noise cancellation is switched on. If you're after pure sound then I expect that there are better phones for your money, but if noise cancellation for travel is required then at £50 they are on a par with the BOSE ones I tried and well worth the money, I think BOSE cost £200+, daft money.

Impedance: 300 Ohms seems very high?

check out the difference in ohms when noise is switched on and off


head-fi.org/for…18/

good review very honest

hi guys,

how do these compare to the Bose Tri-port over ear headphones - i currently have them and they are brilliant, only downside is they dont have noise cancellation.

Amazing. They are one of the best pairs of headphones i have ever used regardless of the noise reduction. I purchased 2 pairs at £125.00 each 6 months ago. This is a good deal.

The cable is 1.8m (think made by QED as good quality) but is a 3.5mm jack to jack lead which is not fixed to the headset so you could buy a replacement cable any length and use that instead.

These sound really dull without noise isolation turned on. Battery life is very good and sound quality with noise isolation turned on is good. They are certainly worth their money at £50 mark purely as a Noise cancelling set. really nice quality carry case and airline adapter and old school large adapter too.

I use them at work but tend to miss people talking to me and the phone going as they do a good job of cancelling out all that.

Great Spot, heat and rep added - Hope it isn't another of PLAY's ' James Bond box set' deals tho!

HOT & heated up Thanks, ordered

Ordered, thanks. Added heat and rep.

H&R 2U Duckmiester, Cheers:thumbsup:

Many thanks - have just ordered hubby a pair! Just so he can not hear me speaking to him!! I'm sure that's why he wants noise cancelling, not just for flights!!:?

Banned

Ta - Ordered!
Anyone can recommend a good and shorter stereo jack cord for these? Thanks.

Good reviews. I've been after some headphones for awhile, so took a punt. Thanks OP.

Damn it - need some decent headphones - wish I wasn't so skint!

always wanted a decent set of headphones so i've gone for these, also ordered a headphone amplifier to go wth them as i'm going to be using them with an ipod

ordered!!! - great price

thanks OP !!!! now I should get a Fiio E5 and this headphones should sound super crisp.

Nice one. Ordered and dispatched. Hope they're good... they certainly look good and at a great price. :thumbsup:
