Pros: Inexpensive, fold into small package so is easily carryable.
Cons: Poor audio quality overall. Right ear was louder than left ear, noise cancelling on the after-christmas flight was sketchy and annoying for my daughter. She stated that they would intermittently just let the low-freq stuff through, sometimes left ear, sometimes right ear. The overall audio quality was very low, lower than a 3 dollar set she bought from a mall vendor to have something to use after the flight ended. A disappointing christmas present.
Other Thoughts: If I were to say anything about this sony product, I would have to say it's the FIRST sony product I've ever purchased that i asked for my money back - I would attribute any problems to poor assembly and QA given that the electronic assembly is pretty vanilla.

Pros: These work very well for their intended usage. My wife had a pair of 12 hour flights in the last couple of weeks and loved these. She reports that they cut down the jet engine whine very substantially and made it much easier to listen to music. They also cut down the wear and fatigue that the constant airplane drone normally causes.
Cons: No cons. These were well built. The hinges for example exceeded my expectations, especially at this price point. It took my wife a few minutes to understand exactly how to fold and unfold them, but once she got that she was set. Looking at them I thought that maybe they would pinch or pull hair, but they do not.
Other Thoughts: While I earn my living in a tech profession, my wife is decidedly non-technical and very skeptical about electronic devices in general. These are just about the only electronic devices that I can think of that she has been impressed with. Her exact words were "I was very, very surprised and impressed."
