Extreme ONE-EIGHTIES Active Noise Cancelling Headphones – out Edition : Hi-Fidelity

These are just the most comfortable set of headphones i’ve ever used, with soft comfy earpieces that totally obliterate all outside noise. The headphones have an adjustment to increase bass but the sound quality in standard mode is simply excellent. Their appearance is just so cool with a piano black headpiece and matt black rubberised earpiece shells. Easy to adjust and complete with a selection of jack plugs, spare cable and little instruction book all housed in a soft padded headset carry bag. Not cheap but worth every penny.

These headphones look good and sound fantastic. I fully expected the vortex sound technology to be a gimmick, but i was and am still hugely impressed with it. The bass is well rounded not overpowering with the just the right amount of weight, while the highs are clean and crisp. Midrange is clear and well defined. Not only do these headphones sound fantastic, the are comfortable to wear. Which is quite surprising given that extreme had to find space for 2 aaa batteries in the cans. These are the 1st headphones that i’ve been able to wear for hours on end without the slightest bit of discomfort. Snug but not too tight, and not as heavy as you’d expect. In most circumstances the active noise reduction works well. It does a good job of reducing background din allowing you to enjoy your tunes without having to turn up the volume.

There is a good length of lead and it is good quality too. They are quite comfortable to wear. The noise cancelling adds bass but doesn’t seem to make any difference to what exterior noise is heard. The normal sound quality is good.

The quality of these headphones is immediately apparent upon opening the package. They look good and come in an attractive purpose built padded carry-case. Upon placing them upon your ears they are easily adjustable for a precise fit and their comfort and quality is impressive. Initially i thought they may prove to be slightly heavy but this did not prove to be the case as i found them to be well balanced when worn. The sound quality is also excellent with the soft, comfortable ‘ear-pieces’ obliterating all external sounds. I played a variety of music at differing levels and other people in the room could not hear what i was listening to. The lead length is more than capable of supplying most needs and a selection of jack-plugs and an instruction book are also provided. Anyone acquiring these headphones will be delighted.

I bought these to replace my trusty sony in-ear active noise cancelling headphones that i inadvertently left on-board after a flight. I really wanted some bose qcs, but couldn’t justify the cost. Then i came across these gems, on offer, at half the rrp. I took a punt, based on the cost, and wasn’t disappointed. They are beautifully well made, appear robust and look fantastic. So good in fact, that i’ve just ordered a second pair for my wife; this time for less than £40. Having now had the chance to try them on a long-haul flight, i’ve got to say that they are at least as good as my old sony headphones, in the noise cancellation department, but significantly more comfortable to wear for a long period of time. The noise cancellation isn’t as good as the high end bose qcs, but good enough to make flying a lot more pleasurable, and at a fraction of the cost. A lot of reviewers of noise-cancelling headphones seem to expect them to cut out any ambient noise whatsoever. This is an unrealistic expectation.

Amazing headphone the noice cancelling mode is unreal.

. They are very comfortable, i can’t hear the outside world, which is a good thing, i don’t know if the outside world can hear what i’m listening to, but what i am listening to sounds very good indeed. I’ve compared them with my current set, and the difference is quite marked. Mind you, my current set cost £20, and these cost a wee bit more, so if they hadn’t sounded better, i’d have been surprised and disappointed.This is one set my grandson won’t be borrowing.

  • So good I bought a second pair
  • Five Stars
  • Great sounding comfortable heaphones. Superb customer service.
