Comment:
I use them while watching television or listening to music after hours as not to disturb my wife. I didn't really need the noise cancelling feature, I wanted to see how well they worked. In a variety of background noises, I was unable to discern they had any noise cancelling ability. I recently replaced the long dead battery and considered taking them on a vacation that including air travel. I opted for the buds instead leaving them behind. My son was house sitting decided on experimenting with them, and independently decided they didn't work.

Comment:
Got them for Christmas to use with my new itouch...so much better than the ear buds.... Sound canceling is not bad at all and the sound is quite good. While they are not audiophile quality, they are light, easy to use, great to travel with and an all around pleasure...they've made my itouch listening experience so much better. A great value for the dough.
