I have a pair of these (bought them awhile ago for ~$50) and the noise cancelling is average. Let me first say that you cannot compare these to bose's qc sets, it does not even come close. It will drown out low hums, say air conditioning noise or airplane engines, although when I traveled, I can still hear the plane, but it was diminished a bit. If you want to get these to drown on people talking, look elsewhere. On the bright side, it does help you hear people a lot clearer by drowning out background noises. I would say this is comparable to the Velodyne vQuiet.

Yes, not as good as over the ear options but definitely useful for flying. In the end I prefer these as a frequent flyer as I pack light + they are affordable to replace when they get misplaced/lost

for walking around city streets will I regret having the noise cancelling box to carry around? of course NC will be off for that application.

I'm seeing solid reviews for these overall. Might have to buy a pair to see if noise cancelling is really worth it at my office. I sit about 20 feet from a bunch of server racks. I typically ignore the noise, but I have thought about getting noise cancelling headphones to see if they would be better than just ignoring the noise.

EDIT: Yep, screw it. Bought em. If anything, it's just an extra pair of headphones to keep at work.

I'm regularly on airplanes for work and pleasure and I've been regularly using a set of ath-anc33is which is a similar product but features a microphone as well. I do absolutely love the sound canceling properties that my anc33is has since it does a very good job of canceling engine noise. But I have had the following issues with the 33is model: I've gone through 2 in a little less than a year and a half. The first I bought with points and lasted fine until one earbud died about 9months in, and the second one was the replacement given under warranty. This second one I have now is starting to crackle whenever I move the wire...however, I think that might be because it has the mic attached on the wire and that might be causing premature wear and tear. Also, over time, I've noticed that the noise canceling properties of the headphones seem to diminish...either my ears have gotten used to having nose canceling earbuds or the product seems to lose effectiveness over long periods of time.

As my second 33is starts to give way, I was just about to fully upgrade to the bose qc20 earbuds but the price was just a bit too much still so I hesitated. But now that this model is on sale, I can't help but use one more pair of audio technicas before moving on to Bose. I hope that since the anc23 doesn't appear to have a mic on it, that it will last longer than my anc33is. I actually never used the mic on my anc33is for phone calls or anything since it wasn't all that good, and regularly pressing the button or rolling onto it on accident would cause Google to tell me to "unlock my phone in order to use voice commands" which occasionally would wake me up from my naps.

The title says "In-Ear Headphones," which is completely accurate. Earbuds ARE headphones. And headphones of this sort, which protrude into the ear canal, are not generally referred to as "buds" anyway, since they are quite different from the old, original style of earbuds that do not go in as far.

I have a pair of Sennheiser PXC 450s, which work well, but are a pin to carry around, as well as a pain to fall asleep using on a plane.

I also bought a pair of Sony NC13s, which I love - not the best noise cancelling, but good enough, easy to pack, and great battery life.

Also have a pair of Harmon Kardon noise cancelling ear buds, which are pretty useless - but the nice thing about them is that they are rechargeable via a micro USB port.

Figure for the price I might as well buy these and test em out, and compare to the rest!

Favorable reviews almost everywhere for $80
In for 2 as they are easier to carry on the plane.
