Takeaway: Noise canceling adds extra isolation, but average sound; good comfort and lightweight.

You'll receive the headphones, a vinyl carrying case, microUSB charging cable, male-to-male audio cable and an instruction manual. The headphones are made using a plastic housing, hangers, and buttons. The underside of the headband is lined with a soft leatherette as are the ear cups. The ear cups are adjustable in height and ratchet up and down easily on a flexible metal band; they also swivel about 110 degrees.

There are two "On" modes: Bluetooth and Noise canceling + Bluetooth. Note that the active noise canceling cannot be used with the line-in cable and only works in Bluetooth mode. You can even pair via NFC on the right earpiece. The headphones are pretty comfortable to wear and the large 3.5" earcups were able to fully encapsulate my ears. The sound from the headphones using the plain Bluetooth with no noise cancelling is warm and round with fairly resonant bass and supported midrange. The treble ranges sparkle putting a decent emphasis to vocals but tend to distort and get staticky even at moderate volumes. The balance across the ranges however can sound a bit muddy with a muffled quality, especially with classic rock tracks. With more electronic music, the sound is clearer and cleaner. With the noise canceling turned on, while it does seem like external sounds are cut down some, it changes the quality of the music a lot. You'll hear more resonance and reverb as if the sound stage is larger, however, it can also make the trebles sound canned and dry.

The controls on the earpiece are easy to access but result in loud clicking when you press them. Short pressing the plus and minus keys skip tracks forward and back, while holding them down increase and decreases the volume. This makes it a bit tricky to get to fine tune the volume level. Also, be careful of clicking the play/pause button twice because it'll activate the redial of the last number you called.

The unit paired easily with my phone and the NFC worked fine as well. The passive sound isolation on the earphones isn't great and even with the active noise cancelling on isn't amazing. At a bit higher volumes, you'll be able to fully immerse yourself in the music, though the flaws in the audio quality are also more pronounced as well. Overall, for a budget pair of noise canceling headphones, the sound is good but not stunning. They actually perform better soundwise as regular Bluetooth headphones and are relatively comfortable to wear.
