Noise Cancelling Headphones

Tune out the noise. Tune in the music.


Enjoy peace and quiet anywhere with our compact noise cancelling headphones. Using built-in microphones and advanced circuitry, our noise cancelling headphones create an acoustical "mirror image" of outside noises--effectively cancelling them out. The result? You hear music and movies with greater clarity and detail.

Cancels up to 90% of outside noise.
The advanced circuitry in our noise cancelling headphones actively "cancels out" outside noise--like airplane engines and air conditioners--for a more peaceful environment at home, at the office and on the go. What's more, the controls are located in the headset--no dangling cords.

Lets you hear every detail of your music.
Our noise cancelling headphones also provide enhanced sound for music and movie soundtracks. Just attach the included cable with volume control to your laptop or MP3 player and enjoy! Also includes slim travel case, dual-pin airplane adapter and T-splitter for sharing.

Uses 1 AAA battery (not included) for up to 100 hours of active noise cancellation.

Tune out the noise and tune in great sound with Noise Cancelling Headphones from Brookstone.

    I auditioned similar products from at least three other vendors/retailers, and this one won hands-down! They are the best-sounding, best-constructed 'phones of all the ones I tried. I use them primarily at home to drown out the humidifier or a large window a/c unit, and I can't wait to see how they fare when travelling. If you have an unlimited budget, the Bose sound a bit better, but the noise-canceling seems to be about the same. The hard case offers great protection, and even has room to stow an mp3 player. In the $100 range, you can't beat these.

    Good Value at 1/2 the price of Bose.
    Noise cancelling is very, very good.
    Bose is not worth the marginally better performance for double the cost.
    This is built better, except for the battery lock tab which is flimsy - buy the extended warrenty.
    For music or audio books, the sound is very weak even when at full volume. Really a strain to hear 'loud'.There is no bass to speak of. So record your music or movies as loud as you can.
    Yes , I would recommend this to a friend who travels a lot and wants the sound to be knocked out. They certainly do the job and give you a peaceful environment.
    The music reproduction though leaves a lot to be desired.

          Comments about Noise Cancelling Headphones:

          Just got these as a Christmas gift from my brother who bought a pair to go to Japan and back. Using them on my computer with my iTunes account in my basement at the moment. I put them on and thought my furnace had stopped working, that's how well the noise cancellation feature works. With regular boops and bleeps on the computer, it picks them up fine. However, there was a drop off in the performance when listening to music - not quite as rich or deep. So if you're looking for a set of headphones to play music, move on. If you're looking for a set of headphones that reduces ambient noise levels significantly and you can still hear your music, etc, these are a great buy. As I travel 50% of the time, I'm looking forward to getting a lot of use out of them.

            I purchased these after reading reviews on several other noise cancelling headphones. I've always liked Brookstone products. Well, these do not dissapoint. I use them primarily at work to help me focus and do online training, etc. They really knock out LOTS of the surrounding noise (distractions). For the money...you can't go wrong. Very comfortable. Case is smaller and easy to transport - plus being a hard case, it protects the headphones as well.

              Comments about Noise Cancelling Headphones:

              I recently purchased (12/1/2009) the Brookstone noise-cancelling headphone. It took me 1 week to check Bose and other less known brands. I took my Brookstone headphone to the Bose store and compared it in the same acoustic environment that generates airplane noise, turbulence etc.. I am perfectly happy with the performance of the Brookstone noise-cancelling headphone. Considering the differences in price, Bose versus Brookstone, I will recomment the latter.

              I have a regular headphone from Sennheiser at home and I like that brand. However I did not try its noise-cancelling headphone which is supposed to be the best and its price is between Brookstone's and Bose's.

              Both the Bose and other noise-cancelling headphones do NOT attenuate conversations that happens a few feet from us. This gets worse with high pitch voices than low frequency sounds.

              In conclusion, and considering the price/performance ratio if one of my daughters wants a noise cancelling headphone I would definitely get it again from Brookstone.
