This is a quick review for the 233621 E610 Active Noise Cancelling Earphones.
This is my very first pair of in-ear active noise cancelling earphones. I have used others which are over-ear before so I am keen to find out how well these work. As usual, I put these to the test in coffee shops, busy Central London streets, buses, tubes and trains. Here’s my feedback after two weeks of use:
– Compact and lightweight. The active noise cancelling control dongle does add a little of bulk compared to standard ones. Total weight is 31g.
– Excellent build quality. Cables are soft and flexible; Buttons and switch feel robust to use.
– Active noise cancelling works really well, greatly reduce surrounding noise, mainly the low frequencies noises from buses, tubes and trains (Haven’t had the opportunity to try them on plane yet but I expect them to work just as well).
– The Comply memory foam ear tips provided helps provide a better seal hence improves noise isolation. They are comfortable to wear too. I recommend using those over the silicon ones.
– They can be used with or without noise cancelling.
– Music sounds energetic with excellent details. The bass is impressive for in-ear headphones.
– Can be used to listen to music as well as phone calls.
– Inline controller allows you to pick up/end phone calls, play/pause music, change volumes and skip songs.
– Noise cancelling function can be used for listening to music, but also on its own to help concentrating at work.
Since I started using active noise cancelling headphones for travelling, I have never gone back. Listening to music on the go sounds so much better. Another positive thing about the active noise cancelling is that there is no need to crank up the volume to hear the music (or to drown out the surrounding noise).
If you are in the market for a pair of in-ear active noise cancelling headphones, I would definitely recommend that you consider these.
Thanks for watching.
