Once again the gimmick of "noise cancelling headphones" strikes again! If they were so good at cancelling noise why don't DJ's use them, they rely on isolating the sound of one track through the headphones and the other via the speakers? They are the audio equivalent of a new DIY tool on the shopping channel!
I take it you read the review then; especially the part when I pointed out that they only block certain kinds of noise and it's not a universal fix.
I'm very interested in buying a pair of headphones around the £130 price point and at the moment I've stumbled upon the Sennheiser HD25-1 II, Shure SRH-840 and Audio Technica ATH-M 50 (which is actually £75 across the pond!). I was wondering if you have any more recommendations from this price range?Any chance of a review of those 3? At the moment the Audio Technicas are taking my fancy.
I've tried the noise cancelling route twice, both Phillips, but I can't live with the hiss that the electronics generates so I've gone over to Shure 'in the ear' headphones which I find very good for noise isolation sans input - they do a reasonable job of filtering out screaming babies on overnight flights.
Have recently purchased these headphones. Agree with the review which seemed fair. Tried these out before buying along with a pair of Bose Q15's. The Q15's looked and fit nicer and were far better at the noise cancellation. However, the sound was inferior to the Denon's and the Denon's were £30 cheaper. I use the Denon's on a regular bus/coach commute and they do a reasonable job at noise cancelling. Certainly a lot better than any in ear headphones I have used, and the quality of sound is superb, especially for electronic music. Jean Michel Jarre has never sounded so good on my ipod. They are also very light, and comfortable, and the hard carry case is a nice touch. Overall, a pricey buy, but they have made my commute a lot more enjoyable.
