I ordered a pair directly from Creative in February to use on a US bound flight. They work extremely well - love them :) Only minor critisism was the shipping company used (FedEX I believe) why you ask - well they left China, arrived Hong Kong, departed to Paris - all ok so far - departed Paris to Alaska (what!!), flew to New York, back to Alska, over to New Jersey then to Paris and finally London. Makes these the most carbon abusive headphones I've ever owned - lol.
The question is: Would you use these earphones to listen to music if they were not noise cancelling? Seems to me, based on "There isn't the same detail resolution or warmth as similarly priced earphones or even cheaper ones", the answer is no. So, as good in-ear phones provide a reasonable level of noise cancelling anyway, if you're going to specifically 'cancel noise' then what you get left hearing needs to be the kind of sound you really want to hear otherwise what's the point?
Just out of curiosity, does it seem like the noise cancelling sound waves are negatively affecting the sound quality on these types of phones, or are the components a bit cheaper than a normal headphone at the same price?
I just bought Fischer Audio Eterna for half of this price...I wonder if they compare to these. When will we have some reviews from Fischer Audio?
