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

Noise canceling

The Goldring NS1000 Expedition headphones provide excellent noise cancellation performance in two respects. Firstly, the large, wrap-around ear cups cover your ears and physically shield them, with the closed-back design helping to prevent sound leakage. Secondly, the latest Active Noise Reduction system counters background noise from planes, trains and other sources.

Class-leading sound quality
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.

Microphone for calls
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.

Practical travelers
Using just a single AAA battery, the NS1000 Expedition will provide up to 40 hours of performance. Supplied with an aircraft adaptor socket, they're 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 4.4 out of 5áby 108 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby First go at noise cancelling headphones I bought these to cover a holiday to Mauritius, 11 hour flights each way. Found them really comfortable (at least 6 hours wear on each flight) and reduced the noise significantly. I can't compare to Bose as I've never had them, but at ú60 these are a great entry point and should be tried. Great service from the Reading store who helped me with a quick in-store demo. 21 October 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great performance for the price The audio characteristics are not as clear as other noise-cancelling headphones, and they do suffer from some external noise leak. But for the price, these offer great performance. 19 October 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Fantastic value! I bought these before a business trip to New York and I have to say, these are one of the best purchases I have made for a long time! It was (as usual) a noisy plane and it was an older plane so perhaps louder than some. These did an amazing job of cancelling out the rumble of the engines and for the money, I thought had great sound quality. I would have no hesitation in recommending them. 13 October 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby IMPRESSIVE Excellent sound quality. It does come with a very good semi rigid carry case and all the connecting leads for tablets and flight use. I doubt that one could find a better value for this price. 28 September 2016
