    "I would argue that these are the greatest sounding cans at this price point (and even many of the more expensive ones). I got to compare the sound to the new Sony 1000x that people are loving at the same price and when it comes to sound the PM-3's are better by a good margin. Like many other reviews have pointed out, you are able to hear nuance to sound in music that you would have never known existed otherwise. This helps you really appreciate well crafted sound and sort of cringe at poor quality audio (though still pleasant). These are for the audio purist, if you don't care about the fad features like blue tooth, noise canceling, etc. and just want the quality of what you are listening to be as pure and beautiful as possible, these are the ones to go with. The PM-3's are also phenomenally well crafted, from the moment you take them out of the beautiful case it comes with you know you have a piece of audio tech art! "

    "The noise cancelling features on these AKG headphones work well, but the sound quality overall leaves a bit to be desired, considering their price. It seems pointless to buy expensive headphones that work well at cancelling out outside noise, but cannot produce their own sounds at a similar level of quality. Perhaps consider a more well-known brand like Bose. "

    "These headphones really aid me in my workout by allowing me to listen to my music free of interruption from external distractions, all while not having to worry about snagging my headphone cable on gym equipment. That having been said, for headphones of the in ear variety, having non molded ear buds is not going to provide a perfect seal and as such this wont be perfectly noise cancelling. The battery lasts a long time, but it is a pain when it does go out."

    "These are cheap at $8 and you get what you pay for. I wouldn't consider them noice cancelling at all. The left bud broke within a month of use. They are chap and pretty comfortable, so a good choice for a throw away pair, but nothing more."
