ATH-ANC27 QuietPoint¬ģ Active Noise-cancelling Headphones
I received a 10 year employment service award and chose these headphones as my present to myself.
Unfortunately, I hear static in some songs and absolutely no vocals in others.
I also really question the 85 percent noise-canceling feature.
The worst part is...I can't return them as they were a gift.

Had this for two years (April 2011) and use it for listing to my IPod when driving my lawn mower, working outside and when I fly. Broke the cable last week and e-mailed support to purchase one and they said, "We will send you one at no cost". Talk about customer service!!. I highly recommend this product

EXCELLENT NOISE-CANCELLING CANS FOR THE PRICE!
I've been using these for 3 weeks and am loving them thus far. The noise-cancelling is very good; the audio quality is very good; the build quality is reliable thus far. Overall, I'd say these are excellent noise-cancelling headphones for the price. They can't compare to other noise-cancelling cans that are many times the price, but for 100 bucks, these are very good. Looking forward to using them on an airplane next month.

Noise cancelling headphones are often used by people in airplanes. Thus it should be compact, easy to use and of course, sound good. Case is too bulky, headphones need to fold flat or be collapsible, but worst of all, the sound is muddy.

Waste of money, except for noise cancelling feature
Poorly engineered product; Starting with the difficult zippering of the hard case, large size for traveling, short flimsy 1 meter cord (It is easily replaceable, a plus), sound quality is way below the Sony it was meant to replace. The on/off switch is difficult to snap. The noise cancelling feature works great though. Not worth sending back(for me) I will avoid audio technica products except for a brick & mortar store. Sorry I bought it.

Very good headphones at a great price
I purchased these headphones for my son in college. He finds that the noise cancelling feature allows him to study undisturbed by the noise associated with dorm life. In addition, they are very comfortable and great sounding when listening to music.

Excellent for usage on a plane
I bought the QuitePoint headphones for my parents who travel a lot more. The headphones work great on a plane: cutting out engine noise, screaming babies, etc.
The best part is my parents are not damaging their ears by blasting the volume up loud enough to hear a movie or what not. Makes long flights more tolerable.

Use them a lot. Noise canceling works, not 100% on an airplane but they are not $400 headphones. For the price they are great & I love the case. Use them at work & when I travel. Drown out background noise & help me concentrate writing reports. Comfortable and great sound quality.
