The Aldi headphones are heaps better than Sony MDRNC8
I travelled with The Aldi Bauhn Head phones and a pair of Sony MDRNC8. The Aldi ones definitely work well whilst the Sony is only earmuffs- more comfortable but don't work.
The biggest problem with the Aldi headphones is that the LED light is far too bright and disturbs other travellers when the aircraft cabin lights are dimmed. Also a little Heavy and difficult to sleep with tem on.
I have found the cable supplied with the headphones has badly made plugs (poor machining) and often disconnects of crackles. I had to buy separate chord which now works well.
Of all the non grocery JUNK that Aldi sells these headphones are not Junk.
Great value. Excellent airplane noise canceling
I have used these on two flights now and the noise canceling function is really quite amazing for the price. I am more than satisfied and would highly recommend them for travellers who don't want to spend three times (or much more) the amount for branded earphones. They are probably a little more bulky than the expensive brands but they fold down adequately and have a nice carrying case. I am not a music connoisseur, all I want is to listen to music and watch films on flights without the engine hum. This product does indeed serve that purpose ...more than adequately. Moreover, given the price, I don't need to be paranoid about losing them or leaving them on the plane. ALDI, you've done a great job on this product ! I must admit, I was skeptical at first but having tested them in real flight conditions am a convert.
Best Bass-Blasters on the Market!
Seriously, For $30, I haven't heard anything like it! Being a fan of bass and the like, these bad-boys handled my 15db 63Hz Boost without skipping a beat, I actually prefer them over my Sennheisers. They are a little heavy, but as headphones go, they're just fine. They're a little tight, but I like this because they won't fall off like SOME headphones *cough* Dre *cough. They have a large expandable range to suit most heads, so that isn't an issue, however, if you have large ears, they may be uncomfortable for you. The noise cancelling is top-n...otch, even WITHOUT the batteries. Having the detachable cord is one of my favourite features of these headphones, as I always seem to have trouble with cords breaking, so being able t just buy another 3.5ml to 3.5ml cable and use it instead is just glorious! While yes, there are some reports of the headphones having a short lifespan, I can inform you that this is TRUE. I've had 2 pairs in a 1.5 years now, but I believe the issue with my first pair may have had something to do with me using them in heavy rain. Hey, for $30-$40, you can't go wrong. These headphones have, in my opinion, great sound quality, and yes, while there are probably better sounding headphones, they aren't under $50, are they? Seriously, if you like like BASS, BUY THESE HEADPHONES. The amount of bass these bad-boys pump out is PHENOMENAL, SERIOUSLY! I have gotten goosebumps lord knows how many times because of these headphones. If you want an astounding pair of bass-blasters that can melt faces, you cannot beat these, and for $30, who's complaining? They have a 1 year warranty so just take them back if they break, and the case is nice and sturdy too, which is nice for keeping them safe and sound.
Seems to work ok but time will tell appears good value for money
Why cant you get the manual instructions right ? it says that when the head phones are charged the indicater light will turn green this dose not happen and your web support notes this but dose not aknowledge that the manual is wrong
