    The headphones do fold up nicely, making them a good compact option for travel. But the wires tangle easily, unlike the Bose. Hopefully, in future models, Sennheiser will find a way to improve this feature.

    Overall, I am extremely pleased with the performance of this product, and at the price point, it can’t be beat.

    These more than exceeded my expectations for that purpose. If you are looking for a set to use in the office at your desk, these are not for you. You can get a better set at half the price. I’d recommend something with closed cups and passive noise reduction if your office is noisy. Most active cancellers don’t help with this problem. The same holds true for most other noisy environments. These actually work best with low frequency noise, i.e. the plane. I also tried them in our computer room which has blowers and stacks of servers humming along. They actually seem to reduce the noise there by approx 50-65%. I had a few coworkers try them out here to see what they felt and they agreed that they were excellent noise reducers. On the plane and with my personal dvd player I normally played the volume between 5 and 6. I watched several movies and the sound effects and speech were heard easily and clear. Before I had a 10$ set that you inserted into your ear. I had to play the same player at 10 and had a difficult time hearing some parts of the dialogue. With the Sennheisers I am able to comfortably wear them for hours at a time on the plane. The noise attenuation works so well you grow accustomed to it. After wearing these a few hours I took them off and couldn’t believe the difference.
    Great low frequency noise reduction
    Very comfortable, light on the ears and top of the head. They don’t pinch like a lot of others, or get hot
    Sound quality above average
    Cool carrying case

    Noise circuit wand can be an irritant, depends what you are doing. On the plane I didn’t have any issues.
    100$ or more, they are kind of expensive and lack hard bass.

    I bought these Sennheiser’s after reading a recent CNET review that rated them “best” in this price range at both noise cancelation and overall sound quality. I have now tried them both in my office area and also on a very long flight to Europe. Overall, I have been pleased with the sound quality – but only when the “noise cancel” mode is ON. If it is not ON then the bass is very much lacking. I also had a chance to do a direct compare of these Sennheisers to the original Bose version while on my flight. The Bose win hands down. No contest. Even with the Bose’s noise cancel feature OFF the Bose cut out more noise than the Sennheiser’s do while ON. I also compared them to a friend’s set of Aiwa noise cancel headphones – the Awia’s were also better at noise canceling than these Sennheisers but not as comfortable to wear on my head.
    On a positive note, I will say that I could sleep with the Sennheiser’s on my head where it was a bit difficult to do this the Bose version on my head due to the bulky nature of the Bose. The Sennheiser’s also fold up nicely and fit into the carrying bag quite easily with minimal over all space in my carry on bag.
    To summarize: If you want the best of breed noise canceling headphones keep looking and comparing with the Bose. If you want some decent headphones that cut maybe 1/4 – 1/3 noise, take up little space in your bag, and are reasonable comfortable then these Sennheiser’s will do.
