Cons ExpensiveExpensiveExpensive, touch sensitive controls can take a little getting used toExpensive, both sound quality and noise cancellation fall just short of being the best in the fieldCan be uncomfortable if you have larger ears, noise cancellation lags slightly behind that of comparable models
Bottom Line The clear choice for those that place a premium on sound quality and noise isolationPerfect for audiophiles that want the best possible sound and good noise cancellationA great choice for those that want high end sound and noise cancellationThough not the absolute best noise cancelling phones on the market, these puppies come closePerfect if you have smaller ears and don't require top-notch active noise cancellation
