It's for noise cancellation.

I believe that is the noise reduction hardware.

They're noise cancelling headphones (spec from the website):

* Superior sound quality with 13.5mm closed type driver unit
* Up to 50 hours battery life from 1 x AAA sized battery (not supplied) Noise reduction: 75%
* Equipped with 9 mm driver units
* Pouch for carrying or storage
* In-flight plug adaptor
* Inner Ear type Noise cancelling headphones with volume control
* 3 sizes of earpieces are supplied, to ensure a good fit to all ears (Small, Medium, Large)
* High quality clearer and powerful bass sound reproduction with neodymium magnet
* Earphone holder supplied
* On/Off switch is available on the battery box
* Inner Ear type Noise cancelling headphones

They are noise-cancelling headphones and that 'lump' is the active electronics that will need a battery.

The noise cancelling feature should be mentioned as it is a very positive point and makes these even more hot.

[DELETED spec, somebody did it shortly before I did]

Purchase some new Sony "Active Headphones" and you will not need purchase a set of Noise Cancellers. Man my headphones are load!

Yep, this is hot, thanks. I'll put up with the white colour for this price.

Will these still work without a battery?

cause I know I'll forget about it

They should simply operate in a passive mode when the power's off.

If you're really interested the manual can be downloaded at pdf.crse.com/man…pdf

The black ones on Play are still £49.99...duh..maybe I should get the black.

Remember Quidco. Voted hot and will be ordering when I remember my darn password!

Used to be £129.99 when they first came out, only a few years ago too!

Just what I was looking for. Hot and ordered!
Thanks - I love this place!

Thanks OP, second purchase today. Not sure if I love or hate this site!

Thanks needed some new ones

Does anyone know if you get noise travelling up the cables with these? I bought a set of Sony HPM-82 for use with K800i mobile phone and it's really annoying hearing a sort of faint knocking whenever the cables from the ear pieces touch anything. A friend of mine says this is often the case with the (cheaper) in-ear type of headphones.

Anyone know how these compare to the similarly priced Sennheiser CX 300 headphones?

surely with that big battery holder hanging from them theyre going to be tugged out your ears?

I have had the sennheiser cx300 and the sonys on the other ]thread. To me they were pretty much the same but the cx300s had slightly more mid range and the sonys alot more bass.

I have ordered some of these based on the performance of the other model, which was cheaper so am expecting these to perform. Fingers crossed!

Good deal - voted hot & ordered.

Reviews rate it as so-so generally, but at this price, it's worth a punt.

From your first post above one would infer that the Sony Active head/earphones you were referring to were so good that noise cancellation is redundant. After reading the product descriptions on the items you linked to it seems the only thing special about them is the head/ear bands provided to help keep the buds to your head.

Making sure earbuds stay in your ear doesn't mean that outside noise can't get in and so you can't really compare those Active ones to this Noise Cancelling one

If your logic worked I would have the best earphones ever by picking some cheap earbuds from Poundland and superglue them to my ears :-D :santa:

how do these look in your ears

do they stick out alot?

cant find any google pics too
