Beautiful sound, non-existent noise cancellation
April 17, 2019
These headphones have a lot going for them, especially at the lower price of getting refurbished ones. They are Sennheiser, so you know they'll sound wonderful. The problem, and the reason I gave it two stars, is because a big selling point here is the NoiseGard Adaptive Noise Cancellation. As others have said, these are definitely not the same level of active noise cancellation as what Sony 1000XM3 or Bose QC35 give you. I personally prefer the Sony, because they sound amazing. And while at a lower price point, I didn't expect these to be on par with Sony's noise cancellation, I did expect a lot more than what they are.
If you are looking for wireless headphones that sound amazing, and look good, these are great. If you need noise cancellation, and can spring for the Sony's, then go that route.
