Able Planet’s True Fidelity headphones fit around your entire ear to preserve sound quality and block outside noise.

This lets you fully experience the high-quality sound generated by the headphones’ LINX AUDIO technology. Combined with active noise cancelation, LINX AUDIO maximizes speech clarity, reduces distortion, and prevents electromagnetic interference, so you can get all the MRIs you want while still listening to your music.

The Able Planet noise-canceling headphones does a decent job for the price. However, there are a few issues with the headphone: 1) it is not comfortable to wear for an extended period of time as the headphone is really tight around the ears, 2) there is a substantial amount of hissing and you have to turn up the volume by quit a bit to drown out the hissing sound, 3) fair amount of sound that bleeds out from the headphone. I also own a Bose QC15 which I can wear forever. It's that comfortable. But I can only wear the Able Planet headphone for a hour until it starts hurting my ears. The difference is the Bose has a larger ear piece that goes completely around your ear.

I'm giving these 5 stars because for the money, they are absolutely superb. I subscribe to Tidal for the highest quality streaming music I can find, and these head phones allow the music to pull you in and captivate. Right now, my tv and home stereo systems are blaring, and I can barely hear the other systems at all with these on using my computer when the music is silent, and not at all while the music is playing.. Of course, I can turn up my home system loud enough to get through these headphones and vibrate my bones at the same time, but for the money, these headphones are quite a surprise, and I'm very happy to own this product. Right out of the box, these headphones perform, and I suspect that warming them up for a few days will put them over the top in performance and even better value for the money than what I'm already hearing.

I have not noticed any actual noise cancellation. What the noise-cancelling feature does, when turned on, is add a bit of white noise, increase the amplification, and modify the EQ profile on whatever is playing. At first, this was partly okay, because the headphones had a strong low-end bias when played without the noise cancellation, and turning it on gave a more balanced sound (with some white noise in the background). Since they've worn in a little, the low-end bias has become less pronounced, although still there, but the noise-cancelling feature is no longer an escape, as the sound I get this way has become overdriven and trashy. There have a few other issues, like the audio balance getting skewed or noise cancellation switching on and off by itself. Even if the noise cancellation hadn't been very good (as is common), I would have been happy with a pair of good high fidelity headphones, but no matter how I try to use them, I can't really get great sound quality out.

These are the worst headphones I've ever placed on my head. The sound is muted and dead. I had to double check that the plug was seated firmly at both ends. Turning the headphones on produces noticeable white noise that interferes with quiet parts of songs. I was comparing these to a 17 year old pair of Koss headphones that I bought at Radio Shack for $15. I much prefer the Koss.

This product is great! Very comfortable but most of all lives up to the noise cancelling claim. My office is next to a window where construction of an apartment building is taking place. When the noise gets too much for me, I slip on the headphones and can listen to music on low. I don't hear the construction noise at all and I stay in a good mood all day. The only problem is that the product sometimes works too well. Coworkers come into my cubicle and they have to touch me on the shoulder to get my attention. But this is a good problem.

Lots of feedback connected to smartphone. I'm disappointed with the amount of feedback when connected to a smartphone (Galaxy S5). When receiving data or charging there is a distinct and quite annoying buzzing feedback. Also the noise cancelling does not work well for high pitches, particularly female voices. Fit on head and ears isn't the best either, with a somewhat vice like grip that gives me headaches every time. The inline volume control is quite basic- lending an almost out-of-date or archaic feeling. On the pro side, they are affordably priced and the sound quality is not bad.

As per the original price, it was 179$ which seems to be a little high for this kind of product, I have another set of headphones for 150$ from a different company and they sound much better than this one. The noise cancellation just amplifies the sound but \"no noise cancellation\". For the price i got it for, its good to give as a gift, but wont say its the best product I have bought, and it's also heavy. So over i would rate it 2.5/5

Yes! Yes! Yes! I totally will recommend this product. The quality is absolutely fantastic. The sound that's enitted is beautiful. I just got a pair of Beats by dre for Christmas and tbh it's just as good. No exaggeration at all.

These are not the greatest at cancelling noise and have a slight buzzing sound when that function is on. But they work well as a good set of headphones with a long cord to plug into a device.

Product is of good quality and I am generally pleased with my purchase, but I can only use them when I'm wearing my contacts. They don't fit well over glasses and are uncomfortable and cause my frames to need adjustment.
