Great for money- in the beginning
When brand new the product couldnt have been more than what I wanted for the price. Noise cancellation worked really well and bass was felt. However within a couple of months a pin in one of the speakers came lose and a cord was left exposed and the speaker was left dangling. Temporarily fixed with a pin through the hole everything seemed fine except for the sound. Its ability to hold bass throughout the volume range was gone. Range of Bluetooth when phone was just in my pocket was also an issue.
Good value for money
These are excellent performers and great value for money. The noise cancelling technology is really awesome. I can't even hear my wife nagging me anymore! So I wear them even when I'm not listening to music!

Very impressed with these new Kogan noise cancelling headphones.
I have used them at home and during a long haul flight a few weeks ago.
The sound quality & noise cancelling are fantastic!
I would highly recommend them!!
Noise Cancelling Headphones- Why did I wait so long
After trying a set of noise cancelling headphones, I don’t know why I waited so long to get myself a set. Perhaps it was the high cost....but then I found some via Koogan store and haven’t looked back. Very affordable and great product.
Purchased in February 2019 for $69.00.
Look after your battery-powered devices!
II have read reviews complaining that batteries fail after a short time. This is almost always due to allowing devices to run their battery flat. NEVER allow batteries to run flat. It will eventually destroy them. The effect is worse if done repeatedly. This applies to all battery-powered devices. It's your choice how long they will last.

Clear as a Bell
I started to struggle to hear speech when watching a movie especially if it had music playing in the background. I purchased the Bludio Hurricane 4.1 Turbine Bluetooth headphones and now I can comfortably hear everything clearly and wirelessly. They have a range of 10 meteres do if my phone rings and it's in another room I just tap the headset button and answer. Can't wait to fly as I hate the crappy ones the airlines hand out .
I'm extremely happy my score 10/10
Good quality headphone without the hefty price tag
I love these headphones, they are perfect for the price and work great for me, I have been using them for 2 months and love them. The sound quality is amazing and has great noise cancelling features, they are also wireless and I do not need to worry about the cords snaping and I am hands-free, they charge last for over 10 hours active listening time.
The sound quality is okay as i am not an expert on that, the noise cancelling function works well and the weight of it is not that heavy and can finally get rid of those wires!
For the price, I would say is reasonable as it is not that expensive and everyone can afford that but it’s a bit expensive at the same time
I believe there will be a better choice using the same amount of money
Terrible - don't sleep after inactivity so if forget to turn off they drain the battery and then can't use when you want... not even 12 months old and they no longer turn on, assume because they wont charge, they are cooked.
wouldn't buy them again - stick with quality manufacturers

Good Product for the money
I think FOR THE MONEY they are pretty good. I have worn these almost every single weekday, all day, for the last 6 months and they are still like the day I bought them. Audio quality seems fine to me but I'm not trying to listen to hifi music, only audio streamed off the net. They work really well on a noisy plane because you can just switch on the NC without music if you just want things quieter, this feature is awesome. I didn't find them heavy but perhaps they are heavier compared to other ones.
UPDATE- Well they only lasted about 10 months...
Good Isolation Music Is OK
These are big headphones and do a good job of sound isolation although a lot of it is due to their huge physical bulk. I get a good strong connection with them that is pretty stable. With the music side of things - well justy average. I have favorite music that I know well and the fine details doesn't exactly shine with these but they are passable. Battery life is OK too. Good but not great earphones
Good Heavy When Wearing
I like to completely forget I am wearing headphones but these can get a bit tiring when wearing for a long time due to their weight.
Setting up was super easy. I didn't even have to read the manual and the noise cancelling actually works really well. Where they fall flat is sound quality. Its just a bit ordinary. They make everything sound flat and average which is a shame as they are good apart from this. So it seems Kogan cheaped out on the one very thing the earphones exist for - the speakers inside. Oh well, I am happy enough with them and enjoy the silence on public transport.

Reasonable, but nothing special.
While the bluetooth connectivity is very user-friendly and functions really well, the sound quality is average. If you're used to decent headphones, then only buy these for the wireless feature, rather than the sound. The noise cancellation is okay, but doesn't seem that effective - it just seems to increase the bass and volume. Compared to the normal mode, the noise cancellation is superior, but that seems to be because the normal mode lacks any depth of bass. I'm not someone who cares a lot for sound quality, but I don't ever use the headphon...es without noise-cancellation, as the standard sound is treble heavy and disappointing. Using this mode does block out external sound, but not as effectively as most of the other products I've experienced. In summary, these are comfortable, passable wireless headphones, and I don't regret spending $99 on them. However, if sound quality or effective noise cancellation is your priority, then you should probably look elsewhere.

Work very welll, robust.
I do a lot of flying and these have had a huge impact on flight enjoyment. Movies and music are a pleasure to listen to. They are robust, good quality and effective. Screaming kids I can handle, but passengers with sinus issues.... The carry case is good quality but very bulky so now I leave it at home. For sure Bose is probably 20% lighter and 20% better sound, but at three times the price!!
Brings audio listening and air travel to another level
Been unsure of purchasing noise cancelling blue tooth because of price, Kogan had a special $199 delivered so took the plunge wished I'd been aware sooner of the benefit's, Ive waited a while to do the review so I could be sure of them . Simplicity of function, they synched with the blue tooth on my Huawai phone and mini boom immediately, I am relatively small female but found the fit perfectly. Two issues they weigh 330 gms which I find a little heavy if I don't get them on the right balance point of my head, also when I have had a message o...n messenger for some reason I cannot get the blue tooth to work again unless I turn my phone on and off not sure why . When I received them I tried the noise cancelling affect at home and found it reduced radio/tv, cooking and extraction fan noise, on the plane is where they came into their own. My husband who is a late adaptor tried them and bought a pair, finds them great when flying. My main use is listening to audio books and using them to watch in flight movies, they come with the necessary cords to connect to airline audio visual equipment. Use the noise cancelling function at your peril when walking the streets your likely to get run over.

I fly a lot and after trying out a mates pair of Plantronics i thought i'd get some, on a budget. Paid $119 with postage when on sale. Have to say that for the price i wasn't really expecting such a good build quality but they look and feel a lot more expensive. Owned for approx 6 months now and get used a lot when flying or gaming at home. Battery life seems great although i haven't tested them to the stated 16hr battery life, noise cancelling seems very good to me but i have limited experience, and playback is also very good quality. I suppos...e my only gripe would be the bluetooth range, they start to break up a bit when only 5-6m away from my PC and thats line of sight with the BT adapter, having said that for all my needs thats acceptable and for the price i feel a little guilty for whinging. I would give 4.5 stars if i could but can't so 4 it is. At the price point i highly recommend
Questions & Answers
I use the phones wired occasionally. If the battery is flat, evn the wired connection does not work. Is this normal? Since I'm not using Bluetooth I can see any reason why the electronics is needed.

Hi not very electronic savy, my Sony soundbar has Bluetooth capability so does that mean the Kogans will pair ok?
What issues (if any) should I expect when I try to pair the headphones via Bluetooth to my TCL Smart TV?
