Monoprice's Noise Cancelling Headphone tries to silence critics
I'm David Carnoy executive editor for cnet.com and I'm here with the mono price new ways canceling headphones.
Case you've never heard of -- price.
This is the electronics equivalent of a generic drug company yes it makes sort of I would call -- not -- exactly a name brand products but it does make.
Bargain priced versions of name brand products and this is obviously a bit of an invitation.
At some of the Bose noise canceling headphones now the first thing in those known as they do seem pretty well built always in love with some of the cosmetics we -- have a -- C.
Finish on the ear cups those are prone.
To fingerprints and they probably will get scratched up.
But the -- reducing well -- they fold flat and they come with a nice carrying case.
The also come with a couple of different chords court is detachable.
And you do get.
A quarter with an inline remote and microphone so you can make cellphone calls but like other noise canceling headphones these are powered by eight triple -- battery.
It's easy access and it gives you about fifty hours of battery -- a decent battery life.
What are the areas where they -- -- download it is in the sound quality of the just aren't as clear as the Bose QC fifteens.
Where the -- -- and -- headphones but the problems with noise canceling headphones is that when you do puts them through that noise canceling circuitry.
It does end up sounding kind of process. Becomes that are able to do it better.
Like those of -- to retain that clarity and make themselves less like noise canceling headphones.
The good news -- you can't listen to these with the noise canceling up in the do you sound better with the noise canceling up.
Not sure exactly why you would buy them.
Except for the noise canceling but you can't do that which is nice so there's a lot to like -- there are some other models out there like the creative each and 900 that are.
Very similar looking this does seem a little better than that it does have memory foam in the ear cups and just seems a little bit more easterly --
But that create -- model is around 65 dollars on line so it is worth checking out.
The real question is whether you want to buy a pair of headphones that clearly isn't as good as some of those more expensive models but cost.
Close to a third the price -- getting about 70% of the headphone both in terms of its design and it's sound quality.
And for some people that will be good enough for others that 30%. A will be worth paying extra money for.
I'm David Carnoy and those on a price noise canceling headphones thanks for one's.
