    Pros: Sound, Fit, Quality, and price, wow! What a great deal.

    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: I lose things...ask my Wife. I have to use noise reduction phones at times to save the hearing I have left.First pair $160...Lost. Second pair $ $100...Lost. I purchased these on an understanding that they would probably end up with the previous pairs. The price was impossibly Low $18,didn't expect much. These are the BEST I have owned,by far,the most comfortable and the the most effective,They also fold and come with a pouch. An impossible bargain becomes a reality!
    Cons: N/A

    Verified Purchaser

    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: I am happy with what I received and heard when I tried it out. The primary use for this will be when I am flying. I am replacing an older Koss headphone with active noise reduction. My hope is that this new unit will last and the ear cups are comfortable. The prior Koss unit hurt my ears when worn over an hour and the material covering the ear cup foam is disintegrating. The ear cups seem to have adequate padding and are deep enough to be comfortable for an extended time of use. When folded for transport they are a good compact size.
    Cons: None

    5 out of 5 stars   Great for airplanes
    By Frugal traveler (Hampton, VA) August 05, 2015
    Review submitted for Able Planet Foldable Active Noise Canceling Headphones (APNC180B)
    Verified Purchaser

    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: I bought these before taking several overnight international plane trips, and they were perfect. They were comfortable and sounded nice, especially in noise cancelling mode. The best part was that when I took them off and wanted to put them somewhere, I found that the head piece forms a kind of hook when folded, and that hooked perfectly over the rim of the seatback pocket. (I don't generally put things in the pocket out of concern for germs, but hooking just the plastic part on the pocket seemed like a good compromise). This kept the headphones close at hand, but out of the way when I wasn't wearing them. Very pleased with this purchase.
    Cons: None.

    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: Decent NC. Affordable. Foldable - definitely a plus. Great if you like bass.
    Cons: Not so great if you don't like bass. Plastic parts fragile, after six months of use the plastic between the ear piece and the headband broke on the left. Now they don't adjust anymore
    Other Comments: The guarantee is a joke. You have to keep the box! Also, register the product and keep the invoice. I think I'll buy a new pair, [...]

    Pros: Price, good sound canceling, long battery life, versatile cord, fold up nice and small.
    Cons: Base is better than mid-range which is a little flat but also depends on loud you are listening. These work best a bit on the high side for me.
    Other Comments: I had my last set stolen and I tried ear buds and finally went back and ordered another set. Still love that deeper base.

    Pros: soft cover but tight seal, very effective at canceling ambient noise, quite good sound reproduction when battery is turned on.

    Verified Purchaser

    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: Inexpensive
    Cons: Feel cheap and sound mediocre.
    Other Comments: I cannot get excited about these headphones. They are constructed cheaply and the sound quality is like a tin can (not much frequency range). The sound canceling mechanism is a white noise generator. I was not expecting much for the money so I cannot complain too loudly. Be sure to turn up the inline sound control. I thought my headset was defective and even called Buydig to return them, but then I discovered the inline volume control was turned to the "off" position. Buydig customer service was quite good.

    Pros: Great sound, easy to use, comfortable. In line volume control.great quality especially for the price.
    Cons: None
    Other Comments: This is my first pair of over ear headphones so I have no comparison, but I love the rich, clear audio from these. Wore them for several hours before I experienced only minimal discomfort, which was also late night so I was tired which no doubt contributed to any discomfort I was feeling. They are quite comfortable and I would recommend.

    1 out of 5 stars   Noise Canceling non-existant
    April 06, 2015
    Review submitted for Able Planet NC190SM Travelers Choice Active Noise Canceling Headphones w/ LINX AUDIO -Silver (APNC190SM)
    Verified Purchaser

    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: Sound quality is mediocre for a low priced set of headphones with the noise canceling turned off.
    Cons: Active noise canceling does not work at all when turned off. When compared to another pair of headphones without any active noise canceling or even passive noise cancellation, they performed exactly the same. Active Noise Canceling also includes a very obvious and annoying buzzing sound, which would be survivable if it worked, but it doesn't. Above that, the sound quality is very mediocre and that is if you manage to get it at an extremely low price. And even then, you can get better headphones.
    Other Comments: Definitely invest in a better pair of sound isolating headphones. I thought the price was great and that even a little bit of sound blocked would be very nice, but it was a big mistake.

    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: Good value for noise cancellation features
    Cons: Over time, they will likely break at the swivel point. See attached photo.
    Other Comments: I previously have purchased a similar Able Planet model headphone and although the sound quality and noise cancellation are good for the money, it is likely that the headphones will eventually break at the swivel point at the top of the headphones as reported in some reviews. See photo attached. Mine broke as well and although they were replaced by Able Planet under warranty, the shipping of the broken headphones back to them was on my dime. That said, I still bought a pair of these as I prefer the color style over the red plaid ones I have.

    Pros: Low cost, works to reduce airplane noise, does seem to reduce fatigue on long flights, sound works fine (I don't use it for music or anything special), folds well, comfortable fit (but I have a small head so I don't know if it would tight on someone else).
    Cons: Had one that broke already at the joint. You get a chirp when sitting on the runway and the radar swings your way (really, it took me along time to figure that one out).
