Superb value noise cancelling headphones with a surprisingly impressive sound, too, the Goldring NS1000 Expedition headphones are hard to beat.IMPRESSIVE NOISE CANCELLING PERFORMANCEThe 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.CLASS-LEADING SOUND QUALITYAlthough 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.ABLE TO TAKE CALLSThe 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 TRAVELLERSUsing 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.
