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 4.3 out of 5áby 57 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby A decent pair of headphones at an excellent price For the price point these are a very good pair of on-ear headphones with a solid performance that is instantly recognisably better than most bottom end of the market headphones (ú20-30) making them definetly worth the higher a price tag if quality is important to you. The headphones are comfortable to wear, although after a few hours you can feel the effects slightly, but I think this is normal for all but the most expensive headphones. The 3.5mm cable is not quite as high quality as I received in my older pair of these headphones (the non 'Expedition' version) but it is perfect fine, but not quite as solid that may cause them to get damaged a little easier over a longer period. But the cable is detacheable from both ends (device and headphones) so easily repalced if needed in the future. Overall very impressed with the product. I had the previous version 5 years ago for ú100 and expected more of the same from these at a great price and am not disappointed in the slightest. 29 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Good sound Good sounding compact sound cancelling works well value for the price 20 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby Great product for the price I've not really used them to much yet as bought them to use on a long haul flight. When I checked them to make sure they worked the sound quality and noise cancelling seemed good. 09 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 Just what I needed Very pleased with these headphones, I bought them for long haul flights and although they don't block out noise 100%, the difference is significant and as I didn't want to spend a fortune I am really pleased with these. As soon as I took them off the general noise of the plane was so loud and they were really comfortable. 05 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby A definite preference to shelling out on Bose ones A good pair of noise cancelling headphones with a decent sound which left me feeling like I had not been ripped off financially either. Wore them on the first day they arrived to block out the noise of the road outside my house being dug up and they did the job. 03 August 2015
Rated 3 out of 5áby good value headphones but bad noise leakage Purchased these headphones as they were reduced in price and also were good value with noise cancelling. First impressions were good.Comfortable with excellent sound quality. However when i was sat next to my partner who was listening to music through the headphones , i was taken aback by how much noise leakage there was coming from the back of them. I could hear every word of every track that was played . Not good when we were intending to use them on long haul flights. My fellow passengers wouldn't be pleased ! We returned them to richer sounds the next day and as always we received excellent service from the guys at the Leeds branch who without hesitation gave us a refund. Bought a pair of Sony noise cancelling headphones that sounded great with little noise leakage and were bluetooth too.....MDR-ZX770BN 31 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent Headphones sound great with strong bass yet a rather balanced sound signature. Noise cancelling great and will be fully put to the test on a flight I have later this month 30 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby The product is very comfortable with excellent sound Sounds excellent although will have to wait until mon 4 August before they get the real test of an aircraft noise 28 July 2015
