With the feature switched on, you can really zone in on the music. Noise canceling is very effective at blocking out ambient noise, especially the lower frequencies. On a flight for example, engine noise is drastically reduced, as well as most of the sound from the conversations in your vicinity. See More

These headphones have a really flat sound to them. The bass is not overbearing yet does make its presence felt in the music.

If it will be your first high-quality headphones you will be stunned. Buying these actually changed my listening habits - now I just sit and listen more often. Because both music and sound quality is good enough. SOUND note: highs may sound noticeably higher. Before buy listen to your fav music and decide whether you like this or not. Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy high-hats never hit me so hard. To choose headphones I've listened to my 35 fav tracks, that I know well and always use both for my pleasure as listener and for the sound comparison purposes. Always check the headphones with the music you already know well and like! And use devices you will really use to listen in to. Listening to Alva Noto - Xerrox Spiegel was a bliss! Btw, here's my choosing headphones playlist if you're curious. https://play.google.com/music/playlist/AMaBXyk9OCtnfgfoT1kdKyF1Qf220lMbGUoGdtYbSg4vQWIuN5dRSLU9lBHSLBSPh2fVs0oQmIqjEBziPJXH-GYKyanryWOwWA%3D%3D Main competitor was the Sennheiser HD series, especially the HD 650 and HD600. I spend 5-6 hours in the store listening. IMHO sound quality differences here is mostly matter of taste. Sennheiser makes you hear the sound more spacious. Shure will make you feel sound almost inside of your head (only in comparison with HD650/600. The highs I recommend you to try both Shure SRH1440 and Sennheiser HD650, HD600, etc. Both are extremely good. Though I'd prefer I'll have them both, my choice was to buy used 1440s, so I can sell em for the same price and get the Sennheisers if I'll want to change the sound ) US customers can choose from the wide selection of the handmade earpads, that may zero the ergonomics differences between the HDs and 1440s. By default HDs has 5-15mm more space inside earpad, even though the external size are the same. I am an amateur musician and music lover/addict. I'm not an audiophile and ok with using streaming services to listen to the 2 new albums per day, instead of dilly-dollying with 16-terabyte RAID filled with the Flac archives. See More
