I do not like them, Sam-I-am

I would not, could not,
on a plane.
Not in the park. Not on a train.
Not in a car. Not on CD.
I do not like them, Sam, you see.
Not in my bed. Not on a boat.
Not on my head. Too big to tote.
I will not use them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere!


Pros:

1. Looks and feels like the more expensive models
2. Nicely padded and sturdy
3. Comes with a handy drawstring carrying bag, or you can get the optional hard case, which is extremely durable
4. Folds up much smaller than it looks
5. Comes with an adapter so that two headphones can be connected to the same audio source
6. Comes with a nice long cord, so you can use it at your desktop comfortably
7. Cancels out noise from your surroundings to a certain extent
8. Reasonably priced


Cons:

1. No instructions. However, it only takes minutes to figure out where the battery goes (right side), how it folds and adjusts, and where the cord plugs in. (I had to figure this out right away, because it arrived with the switch in the "on" position and a dead AAA battery)
2. For the noise cancelling feature, the on/off button is located quite inconveniently behind your right ear
3. While it muffles some of the background noise, it still lets through quite a lot, and the hissing noise can bother some users. You can still hear the sound of the keys on a keyboard when you type, but when you take it off there is a noticeable difference. A loud party in the neighborhood became a lot more bearable with them on.
4. As a regular headphone this one is unfortunately not very good. You can hardly hear anything with the noise cancelling feature off, and when you put it on, it manages to remove all the bass resulting in a tinny sound.
5. Even folded, it's still quite bulky to tote around


Conclusion:

Rugged and expensive looking, this headphone promises effective noise-cancelling features and good audio sound.
Unfortunately, it falls short in both categories.
I do not like them, Sam-I-am
