Superb value noise cancelling headphones with a surprisingly impressive sound too, the Goldring NS1000 Expedition headphones are hard to beat.


The Goldring NS1000 Expedition headphones provide excellent noise cancellation performance in two respects. In the first, the large, wrap-around ear cups cover your ears and physically shield them from outside noise. The closed back design also helps prevent sound leakage. In addition to this, the latest Active Noise Reduction system counters background noise from noisy planes, trains and other transport systems.


Although primarily noise cancelling headphones, the NS1000 Expedition's sound impressive in their own right. The large drive units offer a broad frequency response for a dynamic, powerful sound quality. The high quality, tangle free cable also plays its part in providing a highly detailed and transparent sound. Over all, they offer a very balanced sound that doesn't drone out the vocals with an aggressive bass response.


The addition of an in-line microphone and pause control enables you to take calls on your smartphone whilst wearing the headphones. The Active Noise Reduction again comes into its own here, as it makes it much easier to hear the caller - even in busy environments.


Using just a single AAA battery, the NS1000 Expedition is able to provide up to 40 hours of performance. Supplied with an aircraft adaptor socket these headphones are also ideal for long haul flights. A carry case also keeps the headphones protected from the bumps and jostles of travel when not in use.

Comfortable, practical and not least, decent sounding, the Goldring NS1000 headphones are the ideal travel companion.

Rated 4.2 out of 5áby 20 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5áby OK but have issues Noise cancelling with these is excellent. Bought for a flight but have used on train journeys and they take out all the low end rumble. Sound is balanced and no complaints in that score. Not too comfortable, I don't have a massive head but they really dig into my ears. Main problem is a lot of static crackle. Its intermittent but very irritating when it happens. Am going to have to return to shop. 24 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Good quality and cheap A product that punches above its weight. Good quality, great price. very comfortable. Most of the background noise is cancelled as soon as you put them on. Even the carry case is nice too. Sure you could break the audio cable if you are clumsy. I am not about taking calls on your smart phone whilst wearing headphones and using the mic. This was suggested in another review. Shouting at you phone on the train or outside you are going to popular! 24 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent noise cancelling headphones Great value for money, very comfortable and do exactly what it says on the tin. They have indeed changed my life, I can now sleep. Thanks What HiFI! Also thanks to customer services to sorting out address change and delivered to my work quickly. 16 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent product and service I needed these earphones urgently for a flight abroad so I contacted the customer service team to see if they could get them to me within a few days. They could do this but they also checked stock at my local store which is where I got them from. Very good service from both the telephone team and shop sales team at York branch. 11 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Sound at a Great Price Excellent quality, price and for under ú70 - Amazing 10 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby good value Really nice headphones, can't go wrong for the price. I don't find too much need for the noise cancellation but imagine it would be good on a flight 09 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby Music is better than listening to whingers! I usually use the "in ear" type if any but these were not purchased solely for me. My wife is going into hospital for a while soon and was not relishing the prospect of people discussing their ailments. A bluetooth speaker was my first thought, then realising others would get the benefit of hearing my purchase for free I opted for the headphones. The wife was well chuffed which as you may know makes "my world" a better and safer place to be. Having tried the headphones my self I was well impressed and the case is a proper bonus!! 02 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby clear sound Easy to use with only using one hand, good sound.Easy controls . 30 August 2014
