Genius is known for making budget computer peripherals and other accessories, and it's nice to see the company making a foray into the world of noise-canceling headphones. The big headline here is the price: The GHP-04NCs only cost $50, which is $300 less than Bose's QuietComfort 3 noise-canceling headphones.
On the upside, these headphones sound OK and deliver bass that has some nice thump to it. The GHP-04NCs also come with a simple faux leather carrying case and an in-flight dual-plug adapter. Like Bose's headphones, they fold flat for more compact storage. And while the noise-canceling may not be tremendously affective, it does help muffle the sound when engaged and boosts the overall volume.
