The CROMO NCX-100s are our most advanced noise cancelling headphones. With these headphones you will enjoy superb quality Hi-Fi sound without the distraction of annoying background noise. Perfect for use when travelling on planes, trains, or in a noisy home or office, the NCX-100 have been designed to deliver accurate sound reproduction over a wide range of musical tastes, whether in passive, noise cancelling or bass mode.

For portability the headphones fold up and can be stored in the supplied, tough carry case.
Bypass circuitry allows passive use of the headphones without batteries.


Key Features

The noise cancellation circuitry uses 4 built-in microphones to remove up to 95% of external, ambient noise. Additionally a built in 5W amplifier incorporates a switchable bass boost circuit that can be used in conjunction with the noise cancelling to provide 10db of bass boost. For convenience, the headphones can also be used in passive mode without the need for battery power.

Good but could be bit better

I've purchased them more than year ago and to be honest they represent excellent value for money.
Almost perfect for long flights and they working even battery goes flat .. .
few small bits could be improved..
First they very tight and no adjustment of tension.
second my cable gets broken as on some planes socked is on arm rest and while you moving you keep bending cable almost 90deg.
small 90 deg adapter help a lot in this case which could be included in KIT

As expected - excellent

I bought these following a pair of lightweight Sennheisers (I broke them) and a heavier pair of Goldring (they failed). The sound quality is better than both, the noise cancellation good, and they are one of few pairs with an in-line hands free mic on the wire (which works well with my Android phone). Good value, excellent build quality, great sound, recommended.
