Bottom Line:   
I use these both at the office and when flying on the airlines. They do a very good job cancelling ambient low frequency noise; my office environment has a lot of HVAC fan noise, and it can get tiring. The noise cancelling effect may seem subtle at first, but the more you use it the more you appreciate what you do hear (music or the inflight movie soundtrack, without having to jack up the volume) and what you don't (the dull roar of HVAC fans and airframe wind noise).

Bottom Line:   
As a frequent business traveler, I've been using Noise cancelling headphones for the past couple of years.

The Aiwas are a good value. They fit fairly comfortably, but can get tiring after long hours.

They do a fiarly good job on cancelling out low frequency sounds such as airplane engines, AC units etc... Anyone expecting them to give total silence is looking at the wrong headphones. They are designed to block certain frequecies.

Bottom Line:   
I fly weekly and have finally found a way to drown out the sound of the plane and enjoy some music.

I would not use these headphones for casual listening. They just aren't that comfortable. However, in an environment full of low frequency noise where I only wear them for a couple of hours, they can't be beat.

The musically quality is excellent and the noise reduction aspect is more than just a novelty. I highly recommend these headphones for travellers.

PS - The noise reduction does not work with a damn on voices or high frequency noises. Don't expect to put them on in an office and hear silence. Also, in quiet situations the white noise can get on your nerves.

Bottom Line:   
I would have given it a higher recommendation if they were more durable. My 2000 model experience fracture cracks in the headpiece within about a month. Overall noise cancelling qualities are excellent for it's price compared to Bose.
