    I am no audiophile, but I travel quite a bit on busses and planes. I have heard these headphones are '' as good as the Bose" Noise reducing cans, and not even close to the price. Well I can't speak to the comparison to Bose on sound, I can speak to the comparison on price. Not even close. BB sometimes puts the Venues on promo and it makes it even better. I can say that I have a great, affordable set of Skullcandy Venues, and I am happy.

    I’m not used to associating Skull Candy as a higher quality/priced brand so I didn’t know what to expect when I got this. What I got was surprisingly good sound, decent noise canceling, and the unexpectedly perk of Tile. These aren’t necessarily the top of the line or even the best in my collection but they definitely are better than average. Battery life so far is excellent. These are definitely ones I would grab for the long flights or road trips I take.

    I wanted noise cancelling more because I wanted to be able to listen to music while I mow the lawn. The regular over-the-ear headphones worked to keep the sound of the mower at bay, but the quality of the music suffered. I didn't wan't to spend and arm and a leg on the "high-end" headphones, these work great, and I am not worried about using them outside due to the lower price. I'd recommend them for sure.

    My husband's hearing is awful so I bought this for him to be able to hear the TV once my son goes to bed. The sound quality is great, as is the noise cancelling option. I do find they are a bit tricky to turn on via Bluetooth - we have a number of cell phones and Bluetooth devices in the house and they have a habit of picking up the one I don't want to listen to at that point in time, but am getting the hang of it.

    I purchased these for work and so far they have been great. I have them connected to my computer through Bluetooth and the range in my office is good. I hate to say it but the sound quality is not far off from the Bose QC II earphones that I use at home. The quality appears to be good and so is the comfort. I recommend them if you don't want to spend Bose and Sony money.

    I would have given them a 5 except, no matter what I try, there is a constant white noise that only goes away when the music is playing. What I am trying to say is, there is never no noise. Everything else is great. It holds a charge for a long time the aux cord works well the case is attractive and these are comfortable. I usually get headaches from headphones but these don't give me them.

    We had difficultly with this product from the start. Not sure why but the blue tooth would only work from one side on an apple 8 phone. Then we used a hard cable pretty much ever sense. It worked with the cable. I am not aware if btooh works on it. Does this mean all of them are bad, I dont know. I have been happy with Skull candy in the past. Sound: Sound was good to above average.

    Virtually the Same Performance for 1/2 the Price. I was look for a good set of noise cancelling headphones for frequent business travel on flights. These sound fantastic, are comfortable, can be used corded or wireless, AND ARE HALF THE PRICE OF THE BOSE AND BEATS. In my humble opinion, save your $150, purchase these and save that extra $$$.

    So far, so good. They are snug. As soon as I turn them on, there is a huge decrease in ambient noise. The controls are something to get used to. They are on the backside of the ear muffs. They are a bit warm for wearing in the gym and they don't like to stay in place when you are laying down on a bench.

    I tried Sony, Bose and Skullcandy noise cancelling headphones. This one is the easiest to use. You only need to press the ambient sound button. This one gives same future as other 2 and great product for the price. I gave 4 stars because the one I purchased has factory defect and gives static sound in the right ear.

    I have worked with sound and audio production for nearly 50 years and have yet to find a product deliver such great sound and noise canceling. I was speaking to my wife while on the tractor and she could not hear it running. Good Job! If I would make any modification, I would make the ear muffs a bit larger.

    They're very comfortable, and the sound quality is great. It does a great job noise cancelling; bought them specifically for a plane ride and it was AMAZING. Very useful buttons to switch on and off monitor mode (allowing the noise cancelling and whatever you're listening to to be switched off so you can talk or something).

    I fly a lot with my job, lots of bad flights with screaming babies or loud passengers. I opted to get these and the very next flight I had screaming kids.. . No worries, these worked great, I actually turned them down and it was still quiet.. I napped instead of fidgeted. Definitely a good product.

    These headphones do an excellent job of cancelling noise as my daughter is no longer aware we are alive when she has them on. Yes, we could be murdered in her presence and she will be blissfully unaware that anything is going on. I imagine that the music sounds good as she has not complained about them.

    The Skullcandy headphones are so very comfortable to wear. They are also noise cancelling headphones which work great. I sit in the family room and wear them while the family watches tv and I listen to my music on my tablet and I don't hear the family nor their tv. It's wonderful!

    My daughters beats got pretty nasty after a couple of years so it was time to pick up a new set of headphones for her. She picked these out and I was skeptical at first. Turns out they’re better in my opinion in sound and build quality to her old beats.

    I got these for my 17 year old son who has severe sensory processing issues and needed noise canceling headphones. They work very well for him and he loves the sound quality! Highly recommended!

    Great ANC Headphones for the Price

    I’ve been wanting some ANC headphones for a while. Most of the good ANC headphones are priced around $300. For half the price of Bose ANC I picked up these SkullCandy ANC. THEY ARE AMAZING! if you don’t feel like spending $300+ then get these headphones. They do a great job.

    Noise Cancelling button issues

    We got these for our child who is sensitive to sound and likes to block things out. They were effective for that, but after one month, the noise cancelling button wore out and wouldn't work. Luckily Skullcandy's warranty covered it and we are getting a replacement through them.

    Great sound and the noise cancelling is right on. Did have some problems getting them to connect to the Bluetooth device that I had to purchase so I could hook them up to my TV, but once it was connected it worked fine. Really enjoy listening to my music and not disturbing anyone else.
