The headphones stay comfortably in your ear. They don't always offer a complete seal but surprisingly, this doesn't affect noise cancellation or reduce comfort. Also included are 3 sizes of eartips to help better fit your ear. Note that these tips have a unique design so you won't be able to use aftermarket tips. See More
These QC20 has a lithium-ion battery that promises to work for 500 charge cycles without diminished returns. After that it will still work, but won't last as long. Note that the battery is non-replaceable so when it finally does stop working, you will need to buy a new pair of headphones. See More
You can disable active noise canceling at a press of a button. Aware Mode can be quickly accessed from the remote, which will disable active noise-cancelling and open up the microphones to allow you to hear your surroundings better. LEDs on the control module will let you know when this mode is turned on. See More
You can easily replace the 3.5mm cable should it get damaged. You can detach the 3.5mm cable from the control module which is very convenient. Other noise cancelling modules have fixed cables, so you’ll have to replace the headphones should the cable get damaged. See More
You aren’t likely to have issues using these on the go. Most active noise cancelling in-ear headphones have large control modules, while the K391NC has a fairly compact and light module. You can easily use these headphones while walking and comfortably enjoy active noise cancelling with your music. See More
You can get great passive noise isolation with these headphones. You get a pair of Comply foam ear tips which are very comfortable in the ear and passively block noise well. This complements active noise cancelling well, and helps to minimize the noise that you hear. See More
On average I listen 4 hours a week to these earbuds and I'm still amazed on their performance. The only thing that happened after years of use is that the clip on the battery pack broke. In a plane these make conversation easy because of cancelling the engine noise over that of speach. See More
These are great if you want good noise cancelling without spending a lot on your headphones. The noise cancelling feature can filter out a good amount of mid to high frequency noise. Minimal levels of low-pitched noise or sudden bursts of volume like laughter may still mix in with your music though. See More
