Wow, amazing!

16 April 2018
These really do work. They're great. They really do give me the quiet space I need to concentrate in my busy and noisy workplace. I vacuumed the house wearing them and had to keep checking the vacuum cleaner was on. Smart noise cancelling, great sound and a solid build. Very happy customer.

Noise cancelling headphones

12 December 2018
Comfortable to wear but I don't get why it's called noise cancelling as there is nothing noise cancelling about it. Good to listen to music with but not good for talking

Great headphones!

2 August 2018
Absolutely awesome pair of headphones! Cancels out all noise needed, but the app that comes with it allows you to tune it to choose what external sound to allow in.
Battery life is definitely awesome as well, as one charge has lasted me at least a week of moderate use.

Cackler-Reducing Headphones

16 July 2018
Bought these after a quick Google Search for the best noise cancelling headphones.
After minutes of scanning the article I bought this product.
I can happily say I'm using these almost everywhere I possibly can now.
It cuts out various forms of laughter, air conditioning, the sounds of typing.
If you aren't a fan of this noisy world, and only seeing visual signs of happiness and none of that ear piercing annoying happy shrills people claim that is laughter, you will love this peaceful world once again.

Excellent Cans

30 June 2018
I bought these before a long flight after googling for "best noise cancelling headphones" and will be taking them everywhere now!

They are very comfortable, have a good neutral sound, no need for silly bass boost. The Bluetooth is flawless with a handy phone app to calibrate the noise cancelling. The noise cancelling removes just about all aircraft cabin noise, even crying babies.

Pros:
They work really well in noisy environments.
Great sound.
Good battery life.
Phone app makes calibration simple.

Cons:
A little tricky to fold away.
Slightly bigger than inferior brands.

Excellent audio quality and superb noise cancellation too. I was a little bit skeptical about this as I was using BOSE before this but SONY WH-1000XM2 has nothing to envy BOSE. Gestures Controls, Design, Material and most important the Audio quality and noise cancellation is flawless.

Very happy with headphone

9 March 2018
Broke my mdr-1a headphones and was hesitant about purchasing this headphones. Had to watch few YouTube videos to be convinced this model headphones is worth it. Jimsreviewroom YouTube video made me purchase and I'm very pleased with result. Tested indoor and outdoor and wow this really block outside noise. Listened to variety of music, and there is a nice even balance of all tones I.e low/mid/high. I'm not sure if having fiio x5 gen 3 helped overall experience.
