In creating the premium quality "Primal Series" PS 300 Noise-Canceling headphones, Phiaton's engineers and sound designers utilized all their expertise to exceed expectations. Featuring the luxurious look and feel of supple leather and leather-grade trim, as well as some of the world's most advanced sonic technologies; the Phiaton PS 300 NC noise-canceling headphones offer music lovers a superb listening experience with unprecedented comfort, audio quality, style, and musicality.
NOISE CANCELING PUTS YOU IN A WORLD OF YOUR OWN MUSIC
The exceptional noise-canceling capabilities of the ultra-lightweight PS 300 NC headphones literally shut out the unwanted noises of the world so you can enjoy your own music in peaceful solitude. Phiaton's powerful noise canceling technology minimizes distortion while allowing the authentic production values to come through. It's the ideal lifestyle solution for hearing all your favorite music, including subtleties and nuances, even while traveling on an airplane or listening in noisy surroundings, like a train or subway car.
ABOUT PHIATON'S ADVANCED NOISE-CANCELING TECHNOLOGY
Phiaton's patented VHST (Valves of the Heart Sound Technology) for noise canceling was inspired by the valves that enable flow of vital blood supply in and out of the heart. Translated to the audio paradigm, the technology makes use of check valves that expertly control airflow in and out of the headphone speakers. Rear enclosure and closed-ear design combine to create an occlusive effect for better noise reduction.
While the headphones are worn, the ear pads contract, exerting pressure on the front of the speakers. Normally, this would 'rumple' the speaker diaphragm and create a buzzing effect. But VHST Valves of the Heart sound Technology is designed to prevent rumpling of the diaphragm, thereby reducing air pressure and transforming incoming noise into reversed phase signals, or reproduced sound, which interferes with or cancels the unwanted noise. This allows real production values to come through with greater clarity.
ELEGANT DESIGN WITH GENUINE LEATHER HOUSING
The ultra-lightweight (140g) PS 300 NC headphones are available in an elegant Champagne color trim for an exquisite accent. They feature an adjustable headband, genuine leather housing, and a soft ear cushion design that seals in the sound for superior audio quality. Like all Phiaton headphones, the PS 300 NC headphones feature detachable earpads that can be replaced in the event they are lost or damaged.
TWO SEPARATE AUDIO CABLES ALLOW FOR PHONE ACCESS
For total on-the-go convenience and flexibility, the PS 300 NCs comes with two separate single-sided cables, including one standard cable and another that features a remote microphone function that lets you access phone calls while listening to music.
The PS 300 NC comes with two rechargeable batteries, a cradle charger with USB cable, and universal AC/DC adapters. One battery offers 18 hours of noise canceling function. Unlike most other noise-canceling headphone products on the market today, the unique PS 300 NCs still play music even if the noise-canceling battery is out of power.

Rating: 1/5Good sound; poor build quality and customer service
Pros: Good sound, and the noise cancelling is very impressive. Very comfortable and lightweight while they lasted.
Cons: Very poorly constructed, and customer service is extremely poor.
After about ten months--during which I treated these things better than I would treat my own children--a small metal disc that was holding the left earphone to the headset simply fell out, causing the left side of the headset to basically fall apart.
I contacted their customer support and asked if I could get the product repaired under the one year warranty (which was still active). Their technicians examined the product and determined that the damage was "not caused by a defect," even though it clearly was. They refused to honor their warranty and instead wanted to charge me $50 for repairs. Needless to say I declined and told them I'd gladly spend my money on a more reliable brand if necessary, to which they were unresponsive and didn't seem to care.
Other Thoughts: "High quality" headphones that fall apart after ten months of light use are as good as nothing; a warranty that is not honored is as good as nothing; customer support that does not attempt to help customers is as good as nothing. They sounded good while they worked, but don't expect much lasting quality...or any help from the manufacturer when these fall apart.
