The moment had arrived. I plugged the earphones into my PC at my workplace, where ambient noise is encountered at its extreme level in a constant babble of voices. No headphone has so far been able to overcome it fully, and I was hoping this could do the impossible.
The model is designed so that it works only in active mode, like the Bose, so you need to have batteries all time. After switching the product on, I encountered a short burst of low frequency feedback on the right, probably by the circuit situated there. It was not damaging, but the slight noise encountered in the absence of music is a drawback.
This gets masked when tracks are played, just like all other amps and their associated hums, though soft passages might get affected by this. Considering the price of the product, I did not want to be too discerning about the performance – and with this caveat in mind, the performance was good. The bass and mids were in control and sibilance levels too were fine.
Noise cancellation wasn't present but it made the background sound leak through a bit, that too in a weird sounding, out-of-phase form. The headphones can handle good amounts of volume without distortion, and again it’s the music playback capability that impressed us, and not the noise cancellation.
