Active Noise Cancelling Headphones : Good noise cancelling and sound but bad build quality

A last minute purchase prior to a long haul flight. Pleasantly surprised that once switched on the plane noise almost disappeared and i was able to enjoy music and films and unusually for me, drop off to sleep. Some problems on 3 of the 4 legs in getting both channels but as it worked well on one leg i’ll put that down to the socket rather than the airline adapter. I had difficulties in registering the product using the scancode to get the extra warranty but that was quickly resolved via email. I never ran out of battery on the 5/6 hour legs though i did charge up when i wasn’t using it. Microphone works well for calls especially helpful as my smartphone does everything well except call volumes (both ways).

The noise cancelling function works surprisingly well. It helps block out chatter on the train and the noise of the tube trains through tunnels etc. The only drawback is the fact that the box housing the noise cancelling technology dangles down a little bit and can be quite annoying. It should come with a clip so that you can attach it to your collar, for example. Also, when it’s windy, you hear the noise of the wind quite a lot, but not to the extent that the sound is harder to hear. These drawbacks are minor though – especially taking the great price into account.

The best thing about tao tronics is the very good aftersales response. I mentioned“overall the quality of sound with tao tronics is good, noise cancellation only fair” and they immediately responded and helped resolve the issue.

As a user of a proper set of active noise cancelling over ear headphones i was looking forward to having a less bulky in ear set but sadly these fail to do the job. Avoid if noise cancelling is what you are looking for. The sound quality was good with the reproduction of highs and lows giving little problem so used as an every day set they are fine. The seller can not be faulted for putting in a huge effort to help on the noise cancelling and in the end replaced these with over the ear headphone of the same brand which perform much better.

The noise cancelling ability of these headphones is pretty damn good. Im very impressed with that, for the price tag and that leads onto good sound quality as well. However, the the quality of all the little rubber pieces (connecting the cable to the ear pieces, the in-ear canal pieces and the additional loop outer ear pieces) are very poor. Every one of these has become detached. The little pieces that over the connection between the cables and the ear pieces just slide up and down the cable, now. And the other pieces that go in your ear are constantly coming off when taking them out of my pocket and some are even tearing already. I haven’t had these long and doesnt feel like these ear pieces are going to last long. Also doesn’t feel like i’ve invested in something decent when bit are falling off or im scrambling on the floor looking to put my piece of tech back together.

These headphones are really good. They fit comfortably in the ear and cut a lot of sound out immediately. Then if the external noise increases it’s just a slide of the switch to improve your listening experience. Now i’m not sure if when you turn on the anti noise wizardry if the sound goes up or it cuts out so much background noise it seems louder, but they certainly work and do the job. You will find yourself turning the volume down on your listening device.

Bought these on a whim, seemed a good deal and for the price i figured they would be a good pair of earphones for use on the train. The thing is these are going to be my everyday pair because the sound from these is actually epic. At first the noise cancelling doesn’t seem to be as sensitive as my sony ncr’s as it doesn’t feel like you’re cocooned in a silent bubble when you switch it on, but it does actually work. What’s really nice is when it’s activated and music is playing it actually also beefs up the sound, there’s more bass, treble, more clarity and more volume it’s like it’s got a little dsp which amplifies and enhances the music. Listening to ghost through these is so amazing it’s like rediscovering the music, hearing parts previously unknown and parts normally too delicate to pick up on are now crystal clear. Definitely a great purchase and comes boxed with enough earbuds and spares and a pouch it’s definitely an amazing product and will be replacing my sony ones as my everyday pair.

I bought these to use on a long flight to australia which is coming up next week so i was looking for comfort, decent audio quality and the ability to nullify the plane noise. Whilst i haven’t yet made the journey, my first impressions are very good. The earbuds come nicely packaged and presented, the materials feel robust and the earbuds are comfortable in my ear. They come with small, medium and large silicon rubber earbuds and a spare pair of ear support thingies, a short micro usb charging lead and an audio jack adapter for use on some planes. Audio quality is actually pretty good for the price, they are sensitive and the noise cancelling works well with constant noise for example from the fans on my pc so whilst i don’t expect to get complete silence i expect they will work well with airplane engine noise and make the journey more comfortable.
