I've just discovered that I've never properly heard my music! I bought these a few hours ago at the Apple store and I'm so impress I've just discovered that I've never properly heard my music! I bought these a few hours ago at the Apple store and I'm so impressed. The sound is crisp and you can clearly hear all the nuances of your music. So much better than my Bowers & Wilkins C5s! They also fit and stay in my ears much better than other in-ear headphones I've used. I haven't used them in a noisy environment yet but initial tests (my husband shouting at me) show a really good quality of noise cancelling. Can't wait to try them on a long-haul flight this weekend as I now have really high expectations! Yes, they're expensive and the battery pack is a bit fiddly as it's large but the sound quality is outstanding. Also great that the recharge cable fits in a standard USB plug - I just stuck it into my iPhone charger. So impressed I'm writing this...I never review. …

This is a fantastic device. Let's get the cost thing out of the way first. It is expensive, so I can appreciate people being nervo This is a fantastic device. Let's get the cost thing out of the way first. It is expensive, so I can appreciate people being nervous about paying so much! However when you try this, the noise cancelling is so incredibly effective you will fall in love with it. I took this on a long haul flight in September 2013 just days after it was released, and it just shut out the background noise of the plane so dramatically it really helped with the journey.
I was also very impressed with the battery life. It managed the entire 11 hour flight without any problems, plus the few hour at both ends to get to the destination too. The device will continue to work as a normal headphones after the battery is gone so no problem there!
Now for some cons. The cables and the microphone clip has a mind of its own so they don't settle very well. I also found that you really have to really pick the right size ear plugs from those supplied, otherwise with the annoyingly insistent cables you will find yourself constantly adjusting them to keep them in your ears.
The other thing I don't really like is the pouch they come in. They are just a little too small for the headphones so you have to wind the cables quite tightly to fit them in the case, which worries me about wear and tear - and these are not cheap!
In conclusion, I love and adore these headphones. They are quite outstanding and well worth the money. The cons are superficial and in no way make me regret buying these. If you are looking for a small, effective noise cancelling headphones you can use daily, as well as the odd long haul flights I think these are your ideal companion.
(NB If you can't try these in the Apple store then goto a Bose store and try them before you buy). …
