The Good The Blackbox M10 headphones are comfortable and offer good sound quality. They can be used with or without noise cancellation activated.

The Bad The Blackbox M10 headphones suffer from a fair amount of sound leakage, music sounds muffled when noise cancellation is not on, and the design is rather blah.

The Bottom Line The Blackbox M10 Noise Cancellation Headphones are a versatile set that offer solid sound quality and a reasonably portable design for travel hounds.

Editors' Top Picks

CNET would have to have an army of reviewers dedicated singly to the headphone category to get to every set available on the market today, but despite this saturation, we never tire of newcomers trying their best to break into the public awareness. Phitek Systems isn't a newcomer in the strictest sense--the company is responsible for the technology behind other companies' designs (Audio-Technica's ATH-ANC7 , for example)--but the OEM is now trying its hand at its own brand with the Blackbox line of noise-cancellation headphones.
