First Look: BlackBox M10 Noise Cancellation Headphone

1:24 /

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

[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> If you're looking for noise cancelling headphones that won't cut off your music when the battery runs out, the trick is to look for a pair that can be used without the noise cancellation feature turned on. I'm Jasmine France and I'm here with just such a set of headphones. These are the BlackBbox M10 headphones and they have a noise cancelling feature, but you can also use the headphones without that feature activated. So, that means if the battery dies you can still continue listening to music. A couple of things of note about these headphones, I think the design is kind of boring, but it's okay, it kind of blends with anything. It is quite comfortable. You have the padded headband and really nice cushy padded ear cups. It comes in the variety of accessories that you might find useful. There is of course the airplane adapter, there's a quarter-inch adapter for use with home setups and then there's the cable that you plug in to this and then into your audio player. Finally, you have this travelling pouch, which I think could have been a hard sided case for traveling, but it's at least something. Now, these don't get super compact, they just fold down flat for when you want to store them. Just two more physical characteristics of note, on the left ear cup here you have the switch which turns the noise cancelling feature on or off and then behind the right one they have this kind of unique sliding battery compartments. So, I thought that was neat that it twisted off rather than popped up, it makes it really easy to change the battery. Now these are a $179, so they're not exactly cheap, but they are going to cost you less from the competition from Bose. I'm Jasmine France and this has been the Blackbox M10 Noise Cancellation Headphones. ^M00:01:20 [ Music ]
