LINDY Active Noise Cancelling Headphones : Excellent set of headphones – amazing price!

The noise cancelling allows me to watch something on my tablet while some one else is watching tv in the same room. And they were also perfect on a long haul flight. Even when i wasn’t using them to listen i something they cut out the drone of the aircraft brilliantly. If you haven’t used noise cancelling headphones before don’t expect them to cut out every noise but they do greatly reduce it so that it does not disturbed you quite so much.

Perhaps not quite as good at nc as bose, but at close to a tenth of the price, i’ve no complaints. These took out the background noise on a flight quite effectively, even in the window seat (often loudest for airframe noise) resulting in me landing three hours later without the usual rotten headache. Audio quality for normal use isn’t audiophile but it’s fine. They pack up reasonably small, but watch for the battery compartment cover falling off while they’re packed away.

Best i could find without spending hundreds of pounds. Noise cancellation (whilst i am sure not the best) was still a great help on a long haul flight, or whenever the kids have been driving me potty :)intuitive to use. Great to have cable option for back up and peace of mind.

I doubt you will find a better quality pair of over-the-ear noise cancelling cans within this price range. The lindy nc40’s have the look and feel of a higher-end brand whilst retaining an impressive build quality (again, at this price point. Without the noise cancelling switched on they sound muddy and subdued, but once activated the nc feature brings these babies to life; improving music and spoken audio quality across the board with a level close to that of £60-80 sennheiser headphones. Tested on overground and london tube train journeys the first weekend of owning and they subdue all but the loudest carriage rattles & standard rail travel din. Currently my only complaint is they are not the most comfortable pair i have owned, with mildly sore ears after 2-3 hours, but this is a minor issue. If you are looking to dip your proverbial toe in the swimming pool of entry point noise cancelling headphones; these are an excellent starting point. Also, the provided case is also excellent quality and very useful.

A great pair of headphones, solid build, great sound and the battery life is also pretty solid. The whole point of these headphones is the noise cancelling, which is really good overall. The main issue is that with it on it drains you battery life. Nothing too problematic but 7 or 8 hours max. Turning it off lengthens the battery considerably but then the audio sounds terrible, which begs the question. Why bother having the switch?. Just leave the noise cancelling on all the time and buff the battery life. Other than that, a good price for a good set of headphones. Even if they do look a little bulky, they are still comfortable.

Comfortably padded, slightly tight but better than slipping off. Bought them to try to cut out sound of neighbours slamming doors really early in the morning while i’m still trying to sleep. It definitely muffles the sound with noise cancelling on. I find the noise cancelling relaxing and, once on, i’m able to go back to sleep until i have to get up. Only problem i’ve found is there’s a loud hum when i plug them into my clock radio, if i have the noise cancelling on, which i need to look into. Fold up nice and compact in their little pouch if you’re going to use them out and about.

. One word ‘amazing’ i’m no expert on the technical side as such but i had some other headphones from amazon and returned them at a similar price to these but these lindy bnx 60 are as i said, amazing. I read loads of reviews on other review websites and even considered digging deep and paying 2 or 3 times more, but after drawing a conclusion on overall value, i arrived back to these and now i have them and currently listening to music with them as i write this review, all i can think is completely the right decision 5 *****+ a m a z i n g.

These are high quality headphones that have a noise cancelling feature that works very well if you are still or just walking around. However, when i am in the car (as a passenger), every time we go over a relatively minor bump in the road, the noise cancelling mechanism responds to the vertical movement by giving a sharp pulse of sound which is quite irritating. Although the closed cup design means that passive noise reduction is good, turning off the active noise cancellation seems to boost the base to unpleasantly loud levels. On the positive side, these are powerful headphones and give very good sound quality from my phone. However, i do tend to turn down the bass setting as these headphones seem to really amplify low frequency sounds and this is not a problem that i have ever had before.

  • Overall great headphones, with some minor downsides.
  • Is that all? Is there a digit in the price missing?

I was pleasantly surprised with these when they arrived, looked good, sounded ace and the active noise cancellation was mega. Would probably get rid of the l and r inside the ear pads but i have them on 90% of the day so really not an issue. Any bugs with them are usually fixed with pairing and unpairing with the device.

Only used a couple of times so can’t comment on lifespan of product but these are as good as my other half bose ones that cost around 6x as much. He’s quite put out by how much less i paid for something that we can’t tell the difference between. I mean, his are slightly lighter and the head strap is more padded, but the noise cancelling is where it counts and they seem to do the same. Takes about 80% of airplane drone away, and then with a film playing you don’t hear a thing from the plane.

Ive bought two of these for longhaul flight to oz and they were excellent for the price. Noise cancelling was superb and they were very comfortable. I have bose at home but wanted a cheap pair in case they were lost or stolen on my journey and these were perfect.

I was looking for a good value set of noise cancelling headphones and these did not disappoint. After reading a few online reviews, i chose these and have been impressed- good battery life and sound quality.

These headphones are very good overall, i will now go over the things that you need to know if you are considering buying them. Sound quality:i am impressed with how they sound, although they do sound different when noise cancellation is enabled/disabled. With it enabled, there is a lot more treble and i tend to prefer it in this mode. With it disabled the soundstage becomes much more flat and there probably isn’t enough treble. The perfect solution is using an equaliser and playing around until you find your perfect settings, but if you are streaming from a mobile device, not every app will allow you to use an equaliser. In that case, listening with noise cancellation enabled is your best bet. Other than that, the sound quality is very clear and enjoyable to listen to music or podcasts. They provide a good amount of bass but don’t buy them if you absolutely love loud bass. The noise cancellation does work and makes listening to things at lower volumes much easier in a room with a lot of background noise. Sometimes you don’t want to have to turn up the volume so loud, with these, you can listen at a reasonable volume without background noise interfering.

I can’t fault these headphones one bit. A good price, the bass is knocking, you can pay more attention to the beat and other sounds which have been programmed in tracks (i listen to rap/hip hop and electronic dance music (edm)) during development. This has noise cancelling technology so if you are in a mall or somewhere else with a lot of background sound you don’t want, activate the noise cancelling with a flick of a button and enjoy the music you are listening to without anything else interrupting the experience. A good buy for those who want quality at a more affordable price.

This is my second purchase of these headphones, on the first, the earpiece mounting clips fractured after around 4 years of heavy useage. The answer is obviously yes. They are excellent for use on aircraft, cutting out the low pitch rumble that can be so tiring, but pa anouncements can still be heard. I also use them when sitting on the sofa with my wife – she’s watching tv & i can listen to something else without being bothered by background noise from the tv, not to mention spurious comments uttered by the wife. For the price, excellent value.

These headphones are one of the greatest purchases i have made. I bought them for use on a coach trip, and as expected the coach was noisy – people shouting, radio blasting. Once the music is playing and the anc is switched on, you’re in a world of your own. Sure, they don’t block all sound with no music playing, but they do enough that you could sleep or have some quiet without disturbance. Much much cheaper than their competitors as well. All in all a fantastic pair of headphones.

LINDY Active Noise Cancelling Headphones

With the electronic noise cancelling feature turned on (which does an adequate job of muffling repetitive background noises) these sound surprisingly decent for the price. The treble is probably too sharp, but if you can adjust your eq settings or run them in for a while, they’ll probably lose that harsh, bright edge. Comfort-wise, they’re not too bad at all. They sit on my ears rather than over them, but they take a good two hours to get hot and uncomfortable. My only concern is sound leakage, which is pretty extreme. Even at what i’d class as a moderate volume (i. One where you’ll be able to hear your music over traffic as you walk) you can hear everything with the headphones held several feet away from your ears. This makes me quite paranoid about using these for their intended purpose: train and plane travel. There’s a very real risk that they will annoy anyone sat in the adjacent seat – or even one across the aisle.

Buildthey are very well made with a rubber type of feel on them the same goes for the cables and case all feeling very nicely made and quite solid. Soundso far im very impressed the sound range which seems very good after listening from everything from jazz to trance. A very controlled and clear sound with the bass being very controlled rather than the usual overpowered boom with no quality. Noise cancellingthis has surprised me how good this actually is having had some other makes of headphones that just had a continuous annoying hiss. Its been really good for working form home with the kids running around in the school holidays. Scream away kids :)bluetoothall good sound seems clear over the bluetooth. My only unknown is if you can have them paired over multiple devices. Accessoriesyou get the carry case all good with that. Then a wired cable assuming for when the batteries go flat, or a device that isn’t bluetooth enabled. Then a plan adaptor, and a charging usb lead as well as a converter to go from 3.

Excellent set of headphones for the price, equally as good as more expensive phones. The sound is rich and deep with no loss of sound when either wired or via bluetooth. The finish and quality of the headset is so much better than i imagined. It has a soft rubberised finish with very soft ‘wear for hours’ ear pads. The noise cancelling so far seems to work well. I wear them whilst playing an electronic drum kit and i can hear very little in the way of background tapping of the kit, which is exactly what i wanted. All round great headphones for the money and i can’t wait to use them on a plane as they come complete with protective ‘hard’ case (again not expecting that in the package).

They lack a little treble with noise cancelling off and have a bit too much with them on, that’s my only possible complaint. Great set of headphones that are comfortable for long wear, good quality bluetooth sound as well as wired, long battery life, simple controls. They come in a hard shell carry case with a pouch for the accessories. The noise cancelling works surprisingly well but don’t think you can flip a switch and turn the room noise off because what it does do is remove the worst of any constant background droning, like a housemate, train, bus, car. Long battery life and reasonable quick charging seal the deal nicely. One of those slightly more expensive purchases that you make unsure of what you get and then are pleasantly surprised when you have no buyer regrets.

So far they are alright, the noise cancelling feature is good and it works pretty well. They look really good and are generally comfortable. The downside is the quality, just after taking them out of the box i found that the left ear cup started to do some weird sounds that after some usage disappeared. The flap to the battery compartment is also very annoying as it is hard to open. They are good value for money though, the bass is amazing and there is nothing wrong with the sound quality. Compared to a pair of sony mdr-xb600 (which are worth £70) these work pretty well and i even prefer it to the more expensive sony headphones.

Sound quality better in noise cancelling mode than non. Good bass levels, accurate sound and the wireless side of things works very well with a good range. Built in mic good enough for call answering. All round a nice pair of bins for the money.

I am 6’1′ so nothing spectacularly large and i wear headphones every day. So when looking for a new pair to replace trusty audio-technica, i looked around for some comfy headphones. The ones i bought as per the description here were reviewed as some of the best build quality, softest ear pads, good sound quality for the price. Which all gets undone by the noise cancelling ( i can still hear everything around me, and why does the bass drop out?) , the headband presses on the one area on the top of your head that just becomes too unbearable to wear for hours on end but starts from minute 1, making these the most uncomfy headphones for my head i have ever worn. The ear pads don’t cover my ears in the same way as the at headphones do and i put that down to the headband (adjustable) being too short. I wear glasses and after several minutes of wearing these headphones the sides of my temples are dented. This is a classic case of these being a very good product bought by the wrong person. Sometimes (probably most times) it is better to go into a shop and try these things on.

Bought for a transatlantic holiday. I’ve demoed the bose equivalent and while the noise suppression was amazing, so was the price at over £200 :)sound quality is pretty good, fit is comfortable. They don’t feel super luxurious but the build seemed ok. Being closed back and with padded earphones they block a lot of external noise to begin with, switch on the noise suppression and all the bass noise from the engines and air con on the plane drops out. Leaving them on without playing anything was pretty restful and connected to the seat back screen using the supplied adapter i could watch movies without interruption. Overall i found i was less tired by the journey compared with previous long haul trips and the £30 odd price was great value just for this single trip. I’ve previously used in-ear buds on long haul and while they block a lot of sound i find them uncomfortable after a few hours. The noise suppression uses a single, supplied aaa battery which lasted both ways – total of at least 16 hours – and may last longer. They come with a bag, decent quality 3. I would recommend them to anyone with an occasional long haul flight who can’t justify more expensive options and doesn’t like in ear phones.

I want to start by saying the price per performance for these headphones is incredible. For £80 you’re getting bluetooth, active noise cancelling (anc) headphones which is always going to be a bargain. With that low price you should however expect some drawbacks and unsurprisingly you can notice them. Sound:- the sound is decent, i’m no audiophile, just a regular music listener and i was completely content with these from a sound point of view. At the extremes (full volume or super lows) you do notice distortion but nothing you shouldn’t expect. If like me you listen for enjoyment as opposed to perfection then you’ll be happy with these. Noise cancelling:great anc for £80?. The noise cancelling works but don’t expect it to be excellent. Constant and dull hums are eradicated and all noises are muffled but you can just hear it working in the background.

I recently travelled to hong kong and found these really reduced the engine noise, even voices and children crying were significantly quieter (although this is not what they are designed for). Unlike other noise cancelling headphones i have tried, you must have the cancelling turned on or the sound quality suffers, so make sure your battery is fresh.

Really helped me sleep on a long haul flight, drowns out 90% of the airplane noise.

I truly never expected these to work based on what i needed them for and the reviews but very pleased to say they drown out the blasting, bassy music from neighbours very well. Enough to enable me to keep my sanity. I still feel the floor vibrating under my feet occassionally but i find i have to keep switching them off just to check that the music is still actually playing. Hardly ever connect them to music, just use them for much needed ‘almost’ silence. Unfortunately the doorbell goes unnoticed while wearing but hey ho.
