My 2 cents.. I purchased this in the previous deal after I have a nice review for AKGs all together—and I should, bc I own and actively use 3 of their cans for monitoring. I really like AKG's balanced sound.

That said, this one disappoints in a few levels:

1- They sound tiny. Bass is non existent, only transients from higher frequencies can be heard.

2- they won't stay on my head. Never had a problem with this before, but every movement runs the risk of them dropping.

3- the tech side doesn't work reliably. It is supposed to pause when you take them off, it does it about 50% of the time, which actually makes the whole process less practical.

Nice way to say they don't support noise cancelling.

It has ANC but you can turn it off if you want to be aware of your surroundings.

I own these for almost a year, and in a nutshell, they are totally worth it at this low price point. Just used them again on a long transcontinental flight, sound really good even without active noise cancellation. They also make for a great gift no one would regret. If I didn't already have a new spare sitting ready, I'd grab another pair right now.

According to their listing, they dont have ANC. They are closed headphones though (decent natural seal) and the ambient aware is probably a microphone being piped into the audio at whatever volume you want.

The N200WIRELESS model has a significant discount too. Any comments on that one? Really hard to resist adding to the SD headphones collection... 😝

There is no active noise cancelling, only passive from the earcups. The ambient aware only activates the microphones and passes your surrounding sounds through the earcups. Amazon's comparison chart is pretty clear.
