The high price should get me a decent noise cancelling headphones, and it did…for one week of limited and very careful use. Then the noise cancelling part of the device started cutting out randomly (the light would go out), and it would make the podcast I was listening to stop when it did. Very annoying to have playback interrupted like that. I handled them very carefully due to the price so not a result of damage at my end. Given the unreliability of the noise cancelling part, they have ended up being a ridiculously overpriced basic set of headphones. Not impressed.
