Product Description

Nakamichi NC40 - Headphones - full size - active noise canceling - matte black

The NC-40 is Nakamichi's a professional grade headphone solely in a rubberized, tactical finish. Designed entirely for the pure listening experience, Nakamichi has taken a minimalist approach with the NC40. The sublime listening experience offered by the NC40 has been attained through the exclusion of all non-essential elements. Leaving you to submerge yourself entirely into the music's essence. The NC40 liberates the potential of your audio files by producing a stage/theater-like presence through the high definition drivers. Each driver enunciates solid punchy bass notes, supportive meaty lows, smooth milky mids and precise delicate highs to please the most meticulous sound buffs. Integrated into the right ear cup, is a volume slider and toggable ANC switch allowing you to flick the noise control on and off at will.

Great when they worked but hard to find a replacement cord

I bought these to replace my old iLive headphones. The Nakamichi headphones worked fine for the first few days, but then the left ear stopped working. I tried switching out the cord but had no luck. It was then that I noticed a slight difference in my old Alphaline cord and the Nakamichi cord-two black lines on the Alphaline plug and three on the Nakamichi. There were no Nakamichi brand replacement cords available in store nor could I find any on kmart.com or the manufacturer website. The cheaper Nakamichi set I got in exchange (no noise cancelling feature) has held up so far and has decent sound, but I will be looking at other brands after the Christmas season.

Nakamichi nk2000

I personally would give it a 4star for quality and sound. But my husband's head is big so he doesn't like it at all :(. Which is sad news for him, but good for me :). I'd recommend this product to anyone simply bc I don't want to spend soooo much on head phones and this does give great quality! Plus I think it looks nice! :)

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Cheaply made and broken when I received them.

They were broken when I received them so not sure how well the noise-cancelling works but they are small headphones and they did feel like they would be comfortable but I didn't try them because I didn't want to damage them any more than they were.. One of the swivel earcups was broken. It does come with a cool carrying case and little mesh pouch that velcros to the interior of the case but the parts felt really cheap as probably most parts are for the price these were. These did seem like they would fit a child more than an adult.. I cannot say whether they worked as they claim but I can tell by the feel of them that they wouldn't last very long.. They could easily be broken.

The most confi noise canceling headphones

We bought this for our baby girl to take her concert without hurting her ears. I tried it first in a loud room and it really reduced the background noise. The soft ear muffins were so comfortable. At a concert, we put on our baby girl and she slept peacefully through out the concert. Wonderful headphones with effective noise canceling. Definitely suggest to use!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Awesome Pair

I bought two pairs of these for my wife and I on a 4-hour plane ride. I had no idea how they would perform as I have tried a couple of "discount" noise cancelling systems and nothing ever came close to the premier Bose system you drool over in the store but cannot afford especially if you do not travel that often. NOISE CANCELLATION These? Oh they are good! Both of us were very impressed. The headphones are very comfortable, perhaps the most comfortable I own and a love the fact that you can detach the cord and use them just to eliminate noise. On the plane they cancel out about 80-90% of the engine roar, enough that you could go to sleep. SOUND QUALITY Deep base but not overwhelming. Like other noise cancellation phones I've used turning it on even in a quiet room seems to boost the treble and make them sound better. Without that they are not very "clear" sounding and I couldn't find an equalizer setting that compensated the way I wanted it to. So overall I'd give the sound quality above average but not great. These phones are best used for their purpose--on a plane. MISC They fold up nicely and come with a sturdy zipper bag to carry them in. Travelling with them is a breeze. I would recommend that you always detach the cord prior to storing in the bag. I left the cord attached and I suspect I shorted it due to too much bending. I'm using another cord until I can get it replaced.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Overall
A better value than the Bose Quiet Comfort.

Here is my comparison between this headset and the Bose Quiet Comfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones: Comfort: Bose - 10, NC40 - 8. The NC-40 is much heavier and cranky, compared to the Bose. However, it is still quite comfortable for an over-the-ear style headset. Sound: Bose - 10, NC-40 - 8. The NC-40 is a bit "Bass Heavy". The Bose provides an overall crisper sound (while still giving plenty of bass). Active Noise Reduction - Bose - 10, NC-40 - 8.5. The Soul headset does a pretty good job of electronically removing outside noise. The Bose headset does it a bit better. Passive Noise Reduction: Bose - 0, NC-40 - 9. With the Bose headset you don't have a choice, either it's switched on or it doesn't work at all. The NC-40 headset CAN BE LEFT SWTICHED OFF and then it works like a normal, and very nice, headset. Convenience Features: Bose - 8, NC-40 - 7. They both include a carrying case. I marked the NC-40 down a point because the way it folds creates the need for a much larger case. Overall Value: Bose - 8, NC-40 - 10. Factoring in the cost with all of the above, even though I've found the Bose to be a much better performing headset, the difference to me, doesn't justify the additional cost. Summary: If you want the best, regardless of price, then get the Bose. If you want the best for your money then you will do better with NC-40.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Reasonable price

For 1/6 of the price (Bose's headphones are 300, this NC40 are 50 Bucks), these headphones challenge Bose's Quiet Comfort headphones. Having tried both, I can say that the noise cancelling function is only slightly better on Bose's headphones than on these. The sound quality on the Bose headphones, however, are much better compared to these. In terms of safety. In addition, the Bose headphones are much more sturdy and comfortable compared to these. However, again considering the price, if you're looking for great noise cancelling headphones for a reasonable price, these NC-40 are the headphones you need. If you're looking for overall amazing headphones and do not care to much about spending the money, get the NC-40.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

You have my 5star

Overall, I was pleased with these headphones. I've never owned a pair of noise cancelling headphones, so I'm a little handicapped with regard to having something to compare against, but here are my reactions. I don't know if there's anything to the break-in argument or not. I've had these for about three months, I use them daily to listen to music of all kinds as well as the spoken word. I guess a total of about 80 to 120 hours of use all told. The noise cancelling works pretty well. I tried wearing the headphones with no music source playing through them and then seeing what happens to various types of outside noise. With a steady low-frequency sound, they work quite well. The humming air-conditioner or a lawn-mower in the neighbor's yard have their volume cut by about 50%. Interestingly, these sources have their frequency shifted to a higher pitch, as well. I could see the NC-40 being quite useful on an airplane flight to cut engine noise. Variable noise, like a TV in an adjacent room playing a sporting event is not quite as well-filtered. There is some attenuation, but it's not nearly as effective as with steady tones. These seem well-made. Removing a side panel to replace batteries or set the high-low switch is tricky, but becomes simple once you get the hang of it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
