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 5 out of 5 by Wow Much much better than expected. Comfortable and great for sound reduction on the flight. Highly recommended 27 August 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value for money I bought this for a long haul flight as I was sick of watching movies with the sound up and still struggling. The noise cancellation on it was excellent from my point of view. I thought they were great value for money. They were ok in terms of comfort, although after having them on for a while I had to keep adjusting them to try and make them sit comfortably. If you want noise cancelling headphones without spending a fortune, I would recommend them. Service and delivery from Richer Sounds was excellent. 25 August 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Love them Brought them to wear at home. My husband is going deaf and has the telly on so loud I can't think. These are brill I can read or watch a film on my iPad without being blasted out of my chair.. 20 August 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Sound of silence I bought these for my wife, who has Aspergers (ASD) and needed something to screen out the outside world. They work. She loves them, even sleeps in them. Loads better than paying hundreds for Bose 'phones that are bigger and heavier and do much the same job. I tried them out in the Spitalfields store and was impressed by the salesgirl. 11 August 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent in all respects Recommended by my brother who travels a lot with his BBC Scottish Symphony orchestra, I bought my headphones firstly for a flight to Israel last year. Amazing cut-out of usually dreadful aircraft noise enabling sleep and also decent audio for in-flight movies, music, &c.. So much impressed my wife, I bought her a pair too, which completely changed our joint travel experience on noisy Fast Cat ferry. 09 August 2016
