I was looking at some new noise cancelling headphones for when I travel and these seem to fit the bill exactly. Great reviews and an amazing price. Be careful with reading the reviews as Amazon has put both sets of reviews for the noise cancellation and cheaper non noise cancellation together.

The only bad point I can see is that they don't sound great with only the passive noise cancellation, once
the active cancelling is turned on however they're pretty awesome!

Almost the cheapest they've ever been on Amazon (to get the above price, you need to go to the New listed products in the marketplace).

Forgot to add, these are also foldable so perfect for travelling.

I have these and have used them on long distance business trips, they are good for the price and the noice cancellation does the job but they do not sit very snug, in order to get the best sound quality I have to press them against my ears (this may be the size of my head - who knows). Obviously the active noise cancellation is for continuous noises such as engines, not noise such as someone talking to you.

I have the the regular ones and I have to say, fire the price, they are brilliant.

*FOR the price

Cold, not Bose ;-)

Btw that was a joke. Good price

An amazing price for noise cancelling headphones, if this is the version they are. I paid well over £100 for my senneheisers.

Cold - if you go to MyMemory.co.uk they're £24.99 delivered!

Is there a link please ?

Good find OP

Reviews are not particularly good, but like most things you get what you pay for. They'll do an adequate job, but you'll hardly get a quality sound experience.

heat - good for that price.

I have a pair and have been using them on my commute for about two months. They do cut the hum of the train and traffic noise a fair bit. When using outside if there's anything more than a light breeze the sound off the wind gets amplified so much that you have to switch of the noise cancelling, then the sound is a little muffled. These are the only noise cancelling headphones I've tried so I don't know if the wind issue is normal for NC phones or specific to these.

They take one AAA battery and I'm getting about 4 - 5 weeks from a single battery. That's using them for 3 hours a day, M-F, so about 60 - 75 hours.

I have recently acquired Bose QC25s and I had noticed that while walking along the street, wind is the one noise that doesn't get cancelled. I'm not sure if it's amplified, but definitely not cancelled. Something to do with frequencies I guess. So I was prompted to share my experience in response to your wind issue post. Compared to the Bose price, these look a bargain.

In response to the possible sound quality issue with these - may I suggest the following:
I'm a going deaf, somewhat eccentric old f**t, so I listen to my ipod on bus/underground, train and plane using my preferred in ear headphones and just plonk my QC25s on top as and when required; i.e. using the Bose for noise cancelling only. Works for me.

Curious, MyMemory have ben selling these for £24.99 for the past two weeks on their eBay store, that's ended but still the same in their own store.
