I bought these purely for the noise cancelling on long flights and they work fine. The background drone of the engines is reduced to comfortable and music and in-flight entertainment becomes clear and audible. The cups are possibly on the small side but they fit easily over and around my ears.
The Goldrings come with a sturdy circular zipped case which contains a compartment for spare batteries, in-flight connector and large jack plug etc. The cable is good quality, detachable and just the right length for aeroplane and computer use.
Battery life is good - all the way to New Zealand, Hong Kong, Australia, Singapore and back on one set of batteries. The battery compartment is easily accessed by swivelling apart the back of the right hand 'phone. For me, another bonus is using batteries rather than rechargeables.
In my opinion, they are well made, unlikely to fall apart (unless really badly treated) and if you can find them for 54 pounds, a real bargain.
On the audiophile side of things, they possibly don't compete with higher-end headphones costing upwards of 150 pounds but value for money....hard to beat. Certainly makes a nonsense of paying 250 pounds plus for a pair of Bose.
