I think that calling these "Noise Cancelling" is close to false advertising. They are just insulated against external noise. The phrase implies active cancelling even though they then say "passive".

Indeed, using their logic 100% of headphones would be noise cancelling as they all filter out external noise to some extent (with closed back, soft padded cans being the best).

My Bose over-ear cans are great at blocking out external sounds, but they aren't considered 'noise cancelling'.

Agreed. They should be described probably as 'Noise Isolating' if they have been designed with that goal. Unfortunately, by looking at them there doesn't appear to be any reason to even describe them as this. They appear to have pretty basic ear cups, and without any extra electronics they appear to be just normal headphones... and not very good ones either I would bet. Gonna have to vote cold just for the misleading product description.
