Able Planet True Fidelity® Active Noise Cancelling Headphones

Affordable headphones deliver award-winning noise cancellation and sound quality in a lightweight, foldable design.


Ideal for creating your own personal space filled with clear sound--or nothing at all. Able Planet True Fidelity® Active Noise Cancelling Headphones feature award-winning noise cancellation and patented sound clarity technology in a basic design that folds down for taking outstanding audio quality wherever you go. They filter out background noise and reduce distortion so you always hear what's in the headphones, not what's going on around you.

Enhanced sound quality and speech clarity.
True Fidelity's LINX AUDIO™ technology creates high-frequency harmonics that enhance sound quality and speech clarity of difficult-to-hear words or notes, which increases the perception of loudness without increasing volume. This means you get full, rich sound and better speech clarity--even at lower volumes.

The right fit for your listening style... and your budget.
With industry-leading noise cancellation and sound clarity technology, True Fidelity® headphones are an excellent value for the price. A lightweight, adjustable headband plus full-size ear cups with soft, swiveling cushions provide hours of comfortable wear. Great for travel, compact True Fidelity® headphones fold down into a protective carrying case and come with a 1/8-inch, ¼-inch, and dual-pin airline adapters, plus a 5-ft. removable cord with in-line volume control for easy adjustment to safe listening levels. Requires 2 AAA batteries (included).

Great sound. Comfortable fit. Order Able Planet True Fidelity Active Noise Cancelling Headphones from Brookstone today!

    The fatal defect is a poorly designed hinge in the headband. I had been using my headphones for only 6 months when the hinge snapped as I took them off my head. Without that hinge, the product is unusable.
    The headphones fit my head too tightly to be comfortable for more than half an hour, and that's probably because of the faulty headband design. There was no way to adjust the fit to get a bit more room between the ears, so wearing the headphones put a constant stress on the hinge.
    There's a further problem with customer service: Able Planet initially refused to honor its warranty, even though I could produce the original receipt, because I had not registered the purchase within 30 days. I don't recall ever getting a warranty registration card with the purchase, and from what I can tell, Able Planet also doesn't tell customers that registration is required to validate the warranty. Only after arguing with the customer service department through a string of 8 emails did I get authorization to return the headphones for replacement.

        Comments about Able Planet True Fidelity® Active Noise Cancelling Headphones:

        I use this product to cancel out sound while I meditate. It does OK, but allows some sound through. I would not expect this product to have a long life. Poorly constructed and low quality materials make it seem flimsy. It is however 1/3 the cost of higher end products.

                  Very nice headphones. They fit very comfortably around your ears and cancel an impressive amount of noise. Not as good as the Bose pair, but for the price they can't be beat.

                    I have been buying Able Planet products for several years at other outlets, when I could find them, so I was excited to find the new headphone line at Brookstone. They are great for gaming and listening to music. They have now actually have better sound and the same great value in noice cancellation headphones (critical on airplanes).

                        Surprisingly comfortable with great sound quality that easily rivals that of headsets I'd owned in the $250-$300 range. Just bit bulky when folded.

                        I use these headphones on mass transit every day. They work well to cancel out white noise (hissing), but not all sounds. This helps if you want to hear voices, but not background noise. The sound quality is excellent and it came with several adapters, so that was a good design feature. My only complaint is that they are bulky and a bit cumbersome to store on a daily basis. Probably not a problem for the occasional traveler. Overall, these are a good value and work as intended. I would buy again.
