5 out of 5 eggsGreat Headphones

Pros: Headphones have ability of drowning out outside sound and hearing real sound. They are professionally made and great for the price.

Cons: No cons.

3 out of 5 eggsMade me sick

Pros: They are confortable.

Cons: When I put them on I played some CSS... about an hour later and I got sick at my stomach and barfed. These vibrate really badly when turned up.... I'm probably going to return... Noise cancelling does barely anything at all

2 out of 5 eggssame problem as other reviewer

Pros: comfortable

Cons: i had the same problem Ron did. except everything was ok but thena fter a few days i got that cotton filled mess he was talking about...i would shoot at my enemy and not hear a thing, music sounded terrible matter what setting on my Xfi card i used it sounded broken...the noise canceling didnt work very well, just ate up the triple A that was in it...

Other Thoughts: wish i had bought something else...everyone told me to get a logitech but i had never been burned by Creative yet, well i guess i will go logitech for things like this

2 out of 5 eggsthese suck!

Pros: cheap

Cons: cheap. sound is muffled. can't get any response at either end of the spectrum. when i try to accommodate the poor response by eq'ing up the highs, the drivers distort. Sounds like they're full of cotton. noise cancellation is only marginally effective.

Other Thoughts: For $20 you can get the Creative HQ-140. simple, clear sound. they don't have the background sound cancellation, but the 605's don't work that well anyway.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth it

Pros: For this price you'll never get such a good pair of noise-canceling headphones. Creative has always come up with quality audio hardware for the PC. Now, they've proved they're just as good with mainstream audio equipment. Has an attitude to its looks, not too glossy white richie-rich. Go for it!

Cons: Nyaah

Other Thoughts: While the noise canceling mechanism is 100% effective in dampening ambient low frequencies, like the deep sound of an aircraft's engine when you've got a seat by the wings, high frequency dampening is passively done by the circum-aural cushioning.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Noise Canceling/Sound for the price

Pros: I must admit I was a little timid about buying these headphones having no prior experience with Creative headphones. Well I have to say I am truely impressed with the noise cancelation feature for such a cheap price. The audio sounds right on par with the price range that these headsets are listed at. These are perfect for the mobile music listener. I use these at work and I sit in the server room and with these on the server noise is just a very low dim noise hardly noticable. I bought another pair for the wife to use with her iPod.

Cons: none that I can tell at this time.

Other Thoughts: if you are in the market for a decent priced pair of headphones that do noise cancelation and are comfortable to wear than do yourself a favor and buy these you wont regret it.

5 out of 5 eggsCool

Pros: Excellent headphones. The noise reducing feature actually makes a pretty good difference in the clarity of sound. Very cool folding design, very space-efficient.

Cons: If you have long hair, which alot of guys nowadays do, then the only bad thing is that you'll have to move your hair to the side or something and then put it on, because otherwise the headphones will just slide right off your head. Also make sure that you turn off the noise cancelling feature before you put them away or it will kill the battery.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great pair of headphones for the price!!
