Returned them.
Heavy 11 Oz
Too Much Ambient Noise
Best Uses
I have ringing of the ear (tinnitus) which is agrevated by noise and a noisy truck that I commute 1.5 hrs each day with. I've been using a pair of Bose, practically every day, for 6 years and they finally just fell apart. The SMS headphone first of all were heavy and the top strap starts to wear on the top of your head to carry the weight. The noise cancellation didn't do me any favors and I think my ears are ringing more after 45 minutes with the SMS headphones than without any headphones. Sorry but this set is going back.

Nice packaging, but faulty product.
Detachable Cord
The Built-in Battery
Best Uses
Portable Devices
An attractive headphone in an expensive box. They fit well, but seem a bit heavy. I think wearing them for a long flight (or train ride) would become uncomfortable. Poor instructions--don't discuss charging options. I am also concerned that the built-in lithium rechargeable battery may not be replaceable. After charging, I tried to engage the ANC--but it just crackled and hissed. With the ANC off, they played well--but something is not working properly when the ANC is turned on.
