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 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 5áby 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 5áby 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
Rated 4 out of 5áby Nice Headphones Noise cancelling headphones are an emotive item, some say get the best quality that you can afford and don't loose the audio quality but they must squeeze you brain flat to keep out the noise......nooooo you're on a plane\train\boat whatever for god sakes who cares. you will be jossled bumped generally annoyed for your journey your very expensive headphones will be stuffed in a bag pouch pocket and prone to damage. So my review, the Goldring's, they seem very good value for money, they stop woman drone, so great value for money, train and other environmental noises. so for ú65.00 get a pair, they do the trick, bigger than I wanted but due to funny shaped ears I cant have plug in your ear type. In fact they replace a pair on senn PCX 300's and they are on a par, grap a set now while they are in stock as they are no longer made 04 August 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby First pair of NC Headphones Only had these a couple of weeks but really impressed with these headphones. They are very comfy and the noise cancelling seems to work well. The NC is not quite as good as the Bose QC25 but for the price difference I think this can be overlooked. The NS1000's to my ears sound significantly better with NC on rather than off but the ability to choose is a big bonus and handy should the battery run out. One thing to note the protective carry case is quite large, the headphones do fold flat but something to bear in mind. 01 August 2016
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
