As a sound blocker, they sort of work; if the radio is set to a low volume, then I can mostly tune out the CBC blather. If I have my own audio playing through this headset, then it effectively blocks out everything, placing me in my own audio sound scape.
Thing is.., I don't always want to be listening to something. I like it just to be quiet sometimes. So I might just have to get some proper hearing protection ear muffs. -It's too bad that they don't make a set of hearing protection muffs with a wired audio connection! (All you can get are ones with radios in them. Not useful.)
On the plus side...
These headphones have excellent sound, they are snug and comfortable and they do block out noise enough to take the edge off an annoying environment.
On the con side...
The input cable is attached to the base of one ear cup, and like a stethoscope, every bump the wire makes against a desk, and every brush against your pants leg, is transmitted to your ear. So even without an electronic audio signal, it's constantly making noise. It's annoying and there's not much you can do about it other than try to ignore it, -or play something over it, in which case, this issue vanishes.
Be warned, they are not that 'cool' looking and are quite bulky. The wire is coiled and heavy so unless you can tuck it away, these are best for sitting rather than using while walking. Also, they clamp down very snug so after a few hours they do become less comfortable, the snug fit helps immensely with the sound cancellation though.
Best way to know if these are for you: try them in person, go to an audio store and try on as many headphones as they have.
The quality is great, I can now hear instruments that are "un-listenable" in other headphones. It does come with noise cancellation but it still has a decent cancellation so I can listen music in a resealable volume and it doesn't leak. The only downside is its style, not so beautiful and the cord is a little bit annoying, but I guess for the purpose of this headphone this should be ok.
There are some certain pros: the build feels robust, the pads are comfortable, the noise cancellation was quite good (practically acting as a pair of ear muffs on their own), they fold up nicely, so would be a great set of travel headphones and for that purpose I would recommend them. However, I would not consider these studio monitor headphones, as they are advertised as being and was the reason I first purchased them, there's so much detail missing for that application that these simply miss, comparing to a true studio monitor clearly and instantly exemplified this.
They sound fine, and they block out noise well - almost too well, because whenever I'm out walking while wearing these, I can literally hear each footfall, with every step I take.
Better used if sitting around indoors.
But I don't need headphones for that, so these don't see much use.
I'll give them another try outside this summer, but in the meantime I've gone back to simple earbuds.
Additionally, because these are relatively expensive, I don't feel comfortable taking them out into our cold Canadian winters, lest they get damaged.
