But it was in the office when these headphones came into their own. I switched on the ANC alone at my desk and the aircon noise and background keyboard and talking was significantly dimmed - to the point where I would have happily worked with just the ANC. Once I turned on the music however, only a loud phone conversation had within a metre of me, and the noise of a cup thumping loudly on a desk broke through - and this with the sound on extremely low (11-12 out of 100). Colleagues were having conversations directly in front of me and I couldn't hear a thing. It was surreal and fantastic!
Sound quality is top notch - especially for the price. If you need something close to 100% sound cancelling these aren't for you, but they are great for the price and I can't recommend them highly enough.
I have swapped out the Silicone ear tips for Comply T-400 Isolation foam tips, this has provided a much better fit for me, and improved passive isolation. Overall, they are not as effective as my other ANC headphones, but they do reduce the bus/train/office noise, and I will be trying on the plane soon. I prefer the Comply foam tips, but YMMV with the stock silicone.
Edit: The wings are really only a minor inconvenience: they are easily removed so it really is a non-issue. I gave this three stars before because I did not test these myself so I cannot properly review the product. Even now I won't be testing them since these weren't mine, but a gift for my father. Suffice to say though that it seems to be doing it's job: reducing noise and providing good voice call quality, according to my father. What I can definitely vouch for is TaoTronics' customer service. They reached out to me about correcting what is really a minor inconvenience and what most companies would just ignore. So they will definitely help those of you with valid concerns and problems.
These were great for travel (especially with the adapter it comes with), the noise-canceling did the job but I could still hear loud trucks on the street and crying babies on the plane. The sound is great quality though. I use these pretty much every day. I like the design, they arn't heavy/bulky, and they fit easily in the ears. I did loose an earbud after 2 months of use as the rubber loosened after a while of use.
My only point to make is about the plastic earhoooks (2 sets) that come supplied with the unit. Neither of the sets are the correct shape! When attached to the earpieces, they just stick out into nowhere instead of holding each earpiece securely in place. I tried twisting, bending and flexing them to try and make them do something worthwhile, but the plastic is too soft and they just flick back to point outwards again. in the end, I removed them completely - the earpieces stay in my ear well enough without the hooks, and allow me to get a good bass response. I wouldn't want to wear them while running, though.
Overall, the earhook issue isn't enough to make me dislike these earphones. They're comfortable to wear and sound better than the (more expensive) Sony ones I was replacing.
