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 5áby Goldring NS1000 This head phone set is great as it is perfect for Work and travelling and home use and comes With a protective case a awesome product. Thank you Richer Sounds 26 July 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Does what it says on the tin My regular everyday in-ear buds are Goldring's, and I've always been impressed with the comfort and audio quality of them, they have a rich bass response and peasant overall tone I've not heard in any other ear-buds in their price range. With this in mind, and after reading the reviews I took the plunge with these! I'm pleased to say I'm not disappointed, they sound great and the noise cancelling is really effective. They come with a semi-rigid carry case and all the adaptors you could possibly need (including one for aircraft entertainment systems). Another nice feature is the lead is user replaceable, with a mini jack on either end. So when the inevitable happens and the cable breaks or gets damaged you don't have to throw perfectly good headphones in the bin! For ú60 these were an absolute bargain, don't delay, buy today, you'll be glad you did! 21 July 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Really good value The only thing is that I get used to the white noise quickly. Otherwise they are great bargain, totally worth it! 11 July 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby GOLDRING NS 1000 EXPEDITON Bought these after doing some research and was not disappointed. Excellent sound quality & comfortable. 09 July 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent noise reduction, long lasting. I bought these two years ago. I do 4 flights a week to commute. I had found watching movies on the plane I had to dial up the volume to maximum, if you listen to max on the ground away from noise its terrifyingly loud. So enter the Goldrings. My local Richer sounds gave me a money back guarantee to try them out, and on my first flight I compared them with a fellow commuters bose quiet comfort model. They seemed to cancel the same amount of noise as the Bose, I run my tablet at 45-55% volume on all flights now. After 26 months they are still in perfect condition and I recommend them to anyone. Battery life is very long, they will accept any headphone cord, they work great with my android phone as a hands free kit, good in noisy airports. The only improvement would be If they could magically shrink into my pocket. But then the Bose are bigger.. 21 June 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great build and sound quality at a great price. Very well packaged in a travel case with replaceable mini jack option. Build quality and sound quality is excellent and they are a pleasure to listen with. Best value noise cancelling headphones around. 07 June 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great value and sound quality Returned a pair of Bose QC25 bought as a gift as many reviews stated they failed so before opening went to store to listen & the display models were broken while cheaper models weren't so took them back. Bought a Sony pair while at the Sony centre buying a camera... they were to be polite, rubbish. I knew the guys well in my local store and tried these... They are so comfortable & sound is great, controlled, not too bright with smooth bass. Unlike the Sony pair, the noise cancelling actually works but don't expect the Bose vacuum effect. They are big so not the best travel partner but a hard case allows them too travel. On the downside, they are plastic fantastic & not sure how they will stand up during use, only time will tell and I'lol enjoy every tune until they quit. Don't hesitate. 06 June 2016
Rated 2 out of 5áby Mustn't Crumble The phones are large, and though they fold flat they still take up a fair bit of room in your case. I only use these when travelling (maybe 10 times a year) and was satisfied with the sound quality and comfort. On my last flight I noticed a bit of plastic had dropped down into my shirt. This morning, when I took the phones out of their case, another piece of plastic from the headband fell off. These aren't impact related, it appears that the plastic is perishing. I'm disappointed that the initial value and comfort will make this product review well, but that they inevitably seem to fail because of build quality. I'd advise Richer Sounds to stop stocking them for that reason. 03 June 2016
