On those days when you just want to drown out the world, a good pair of noise canceling headphones truly shines. Join us as we review the Lindy Noise Cancelling Headphones. Continuing our trend of providing useful gadget and accessory reviews, Tech Made Easy has a new one for you.
The headset looks sturdy and a tad solid despite the hinges on the arms. This is so that the user can fold the earpieces when not in use. Brilliant! The cushions are soft but we’re a bit worried that they may deflate over time but it’s nothing that careful handling won’t fix. The sides of the ear pieces look a little bulky but that’ to hide the fact that battery for the noise cancellation is included. There’s also room for the volume control, the switch for the cancellation, and the connector cable.
Not bad at all. As looks go, they actually look more expensive than they actually are—which is a bonus for the status conscious.
In order to satisfactorily say that the noise cancelling works, we figured it would only be fair if we tried out the headset before we switched the noise cancelling on. As far as sound goes, it was all fairly adequate. The sound was clear, the base was just right, and you can hear ambient noise around you.
It managed to do well when we played music, played some games, and watched some movies. It was all pretty swell. But of course, we are not looking for just another pair of good quality headsets. We’re looking for something to keep the ambient noise out. Once we switched on the noise cancellation, it was pretty effective.
There was a very noticeable drop in the ambient noise. Let’s put it this way, if you’re a commuter, you’ll probably not even realize you have people next to you. With the noise cancelling on, we tried all the same tests: music, gaming, and a movie. We observed a drastic improvement in the quality of our experience.
The sound was even better and the quality of audio improved.
£40! No, really. The way we were going about it, we fully expected to pay something closer to £120. So not only was it a bargain, it’s very effective in keeping out ambient noise that you’d rather not deal with.
Verdict: Highly Recommended
We truly suggest that you get your own pair of Lindy Noise Cancelling Headphones. Your introvert-based bubble with thank you!
