RCA Active Noise Canceling Headphones

are these any good? or rather, are they worth the 12 + s&h?

The 80’s called and want their headphones back.

No, they suck. they noise canceling is fairly heavy-handed, and the headphones themselves are uncomfortable. wear them for thirty minutes and you’ll be dying to get them off.

Same price as buy.com after shipping.

u can find in buy.com for the same price if you only get 1.

reviews on buy.com

apparently this set is good for the price. same price here and there unless you buy more than one.

Can anyone recommend really good noise canceling headphones.

Buy and woot are connected

Wow RCA is still around

bose? lol they rulez

and yea MN is buyin this stuff up!!! whoop whoop :smiley:

Jabra are good…cheaper then Bose, more expensive then this crap…

These should be huge sellers in states where McCain and Obama are still campaigning.

Bose. Ive tried several other brands for when I’m flying and Bose beats everyone.

Heavy handed noise cancelling? That sounds good to me. I’m in for two!

How are they connected?

I figured woot’s just a place where companies (forced, by tax laws, to refurbish their used products) dump their stuff so they don’t have to compete with their own new products on mainstream websites…

And of course you can return them to Buy.com if you are unhappy

I was wondering what he meant by that, too.

It seems a bit like saying “an overly lofty airplane”, or “an unbelievably convincing performance”.

I have the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7s and I love them. I use them when I go overseas and don’t want to have my IEMs in for 14+ hours at a time. The noise canceling works great, the drone of the engines is eliminated. Sound quality is good, they are comfortable, and the AAA battery lasts for more than 40 hours. You can get them from Amazon for less than half the price of the Bose, and they sound better too.
