AblePlanet Musician’s Choice Noise Cancellation Headphones Review

I usually listen to music when I write, which means I listen to music everyday. Until last week I had a pretty sad pair of headphones. They were the kind that just rest on your ears, and the problem with that is you hear a lot of things in addition to your music- the dogs playing and the tapping of my nails on the keyboard for example. 

When I use my new Musician’s Choice noise cancellation neon headphones from AblePlanet all I hear is music. When you want my attention you will actually have to come tap me on the shoulder! There are some really awesome features on these headphones. 

To start with just look at them! Aren't they pretty on? They come in a huge selection of awesome colors, so that everyone can get the pair that says something about who they are. I bet you all wouldn't have to think too much to guess it didn't take me any time at all to settle on the neon pink. 

In addition to looking cute on, they feel great on! The have padding on the top, which I've never seen before and the actual ear muffs are padded around the edges to make them comfy yet fit snugly enough to block out sounds. 

When you aren’t wearing them they fold up easily and come with a little bag to store or carry them in. The folded size makes them perfect for travel and they even come with two adapters, one for a home stereo and one for airplanes. 

In order to use the noise canceling feature you will need to put a battery in. They come with the battery, and the battery compartment is super easy to open. I have never used noise canceling headphones before so I wasn't sure what to expect. When you flip the on switch, you get a steady hum of white noise, which you don‘t notice at all when you are listening to something.

It also has InWire volume control so that you can easily adjust your volume level. The cord is plenty long too, which I love. I actually have an extension that I needed to use with my old ones but I don’t need it with these…. unless I want to walk around and dance!

I think what is most important and impressive is just how wonderful the sound quality is. I really truly notice a difference now when listening to movies and music. The difference goes beyond the fact that there are no outside noises, which is awesome, and really speaks to the quality of the design.
