The NC510B Sound Clarity Active Noise Canceling Headphones from Able Planet provide award-winning sound quality and effective noise cancellation in a compact and comfortable package. The headphones feature patented LINX audio technology, which provides maximum clarity while reducing distortion, filtering unwanted sound, and restricting electromagnetic interference. The result is a natural, immersive sound experience that brings out all of the detail in your music.

The adjustable, padded headband provides a snug fit for practically any head size. Swivel earcups with thick around-ear cushions provide lasting comfort and natural noise isolation. Active noise canceling technology is also built-in to significantly reduce the impact of unwanted environmental noise. The headphones can also operate in passive mode without cancellation if the batteries happen to die, or if you don't want the cancellation enabled.

The detachable, single-sided cable helps to minimize tangles, while an inline volume control lets you make on-the-fly adjustments. The cable has a standard 3.5mm plug with 1/4" and airplane adapters for wide compatibility with consumer and professional audio devices, as well as in-flight entertainment systems. A hard shell case is included for convenient storage.

5 out of 5 stars   Great headphones!
By Matt (Costa Mesa, CA) August 12, 2012
Review submitted for Able Planet NC510B Sound Clarity Around-the-Ear Active Noise Canceling Headphones (APNC510)
Pros: Comfortable for long trip, Great Sound quality
Cons: Power Switch
Other Comments: I bought a pair of these headphones last November, because I fly across country frequently, and wanted something to kill the "airplane" noise, plus give me great sound while watching movies on my iPad. I tested several brands in stores (Able Planet, Bose, Dr. Dre, JVC, Sony, etc.), and they all sounded good...in the store. And I will admit that the Bose Quiet Comfort 15 did have better sound quality than all the others, though they were only slightly better sounding than the Able Planet NC510B's. However, Able Planet's noise canceling was MUCH better than Bose's (in my opinion), plus, the Bose cost 3 times as much. So taking all that into account, and after reading several online reviews of Able Planet's technology, I decided to give them a try. I can honestly say that even though I paid just under $100, I don't regret the purchase one bit! It's amazing how much noise they eliminate on an airplane. And even after a 4+ hour cross-country flight, my ears aren't sweaty and they don't hurt at all. It's true what other reivewers have said that, if you turn off the noise-canceling feature, the NC510B's sound quality drops dramatically. But the whole purpose of buying noise-canceling headphones is to cancel noise, so that's really a senseless complaint. The only thing that I would like to see changed is the placement of the on/off switch. It's on the back edge of the left ear cup, which is nice and out-of-the-way when you have them on. However, when folded flat and placed in the storage container, it rests up against the edge of the right ear cup. If it's just sitting in a closet between uses, nothing moves so you won't have any problems. But if you keep them in a backpack or a suitcase and it bounces around, there's a chance that the two ear cups could move slightly and rub together, causing the power to turn on accidentally. The batteries typically last me about 40 hours, which is a long time when you're watching movies or listening to music. But when it's sitting in a suitcase between flights and it accidentally turns on, 40 hours will go buy in a heartbeat, so you might have an unpleasant surprise of dead batteries the next time you take them out. But this isn't any reason to not buy them. I put a thin piece of foam between the cups to separate them just a bit, and the problem went away. Or if you don't want to do that, you can just take the batteries out between uses, or better yet, there's a little pouch on the inside of the storage container to store the wire, and you can keep a couple extra AAA batteries in there for emergencies. So in a nutshell, these are awesome headphones, and I've recommended them to several people who have asked me about them during my flights, not to mention friends and family in need of good quality headphones.

4 out of 5 stars   It's a good BUY
By max (Winnipeg, MB, Canada) July 23, 2012
Review submitted for Able Planet NC510B Sound Clarity Around-the-Ear Active Noise Canceling Headphones (APNC510)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Sturdy design, Very good sound quality, Good price, Looks pretty cool too
Cons: Ear cup is kind hard
Other Comments: used it for a couple of weeks for now, everything works great, especially the sound. I tried Bose QC15 before, actually the sound quality is not much of a difference. The cushion of the ear cup is a little bit of hard, and the inner ear part is flat so it do touch your ear, I feel a little bit of uncomfortable after few hours of usage. For this price and the sound quality, It's highly recommended.

Pros:
Cons: Poor quality voice
Other Comments: I was so excited to buy a noise cancelling headphones at this price. When i saw the reviews in Youtube it was good but when i got it it was of poor quality. The voice and sound are at different volumes and you feel like somebody is singing at a long distance but the music is been played very near to you.

4 out of 5 stars   Good headphone with noise cancellation
By Anil (Pleasanton,CA) July 19, 2012
Review submitted for Able Planet NC510B Sound Clarity Around-the-Ear Active Noise Canceling Headphones (APNC510)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Treble, Bass, Noise cancellation
Cons: Cannot fold fully
Other Comments: I never heard of Able Planet NC510B but when I saw good reviews, I wanted to give a try, I am happy so far. The Bass, Treble and the notes comes clean when you turn on the noise cancellation, but when you turn of the noise cancellation you loose some of the juice. Overall good product. I was close to give 5 stars I have look at the things I do not like about it also, they are 1) they do not sit perfect on my ears. 2)top cushion is not comfy for me as it bothers me little bit. 3) Does not fold fully as other one from Dr. Dre
