IE NC is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 288.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable value at $20!! Wasn't expecting a whole lot for the price even thoughvthey were Harmon kardon. But I'm blown away... Paired with a HTC 10 they are truly amazing. Tried on different phone and there still pretty good. But the 10 really makes these earbuds shine!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm! Used these on a 13 hour flight Atlanta to South Africa. The noise cancellation was great, not only for videos and music, but better than ear plugs for sleeping on a plane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb design and function I purchased this a few weeks ago after receiving a deal notice from Android Authority. The deal was so good I honestly had low expectations. I was shocked at the performance of these earbuds when paired with my Idol 4. Simply spectacular sound and very comfortable to wear for extended period of times. The unit charged quickly to boot. My only issue was I has an issue with the one of the "mounting" options (I have large ears and unfortunately inside is very different from side to side), but by adapting to my circumstances by mixing methods and sizes, I was able to achieve complete integrity when wearing during normal activities. A definite buy at full price and spectacular deal when discounted.

Can I use it without the NC box separately when needed ? Are the earphones separable from the NC box ?

Asked by: Vikey
Only if you no how to splice a cable and tie them together once u have removed the NC box but then you compromise the factore of the cable being oxygen free

How do I activate these headphone

Asked by: vasu pathapati
Here is how you can activate the Noise Cancelling feature of the IENC You can turn the Noise Cancellation on and off by using the switch that is located on the right side of the NC box. When choosing the switch option, you will see a green light inside the switch will indicate that the Noise Cancelation is on. To turn off the Noise Cancelation, move the switch down towards the cable and the green light will turn off. When charging this device with the micro USB charging cable included in the packaging, you will see the light turn orange to indicate that it is charging.

Are these sweat proof at all, or purely audio earbuds? I don't want to ruin them working out.

Asked by: Tungi
The IENC is not a sweat proof earbuds. If you're looking into something sweat proof, our sister company, JBL, offers sport headpones designed to use for workouts. You may visit at this link for a quick reference. http://www.jbl.com/earbuds/

I dont think it is wireless, why does it says it has charging capability?

Asked by: arni
You are correct, the IENC is not a wireless product. The Active Noise Cancelling box is what you will need to charge with a micro USB. In order to receive up to 35 hours of active noise cancellation, it needs to be charged for 3.5 hours. You should still be able to hear music without having the ANC on.

What a great product!, Is there any risk if the Noise cancelling device is connected by few seconds to the outlet.

Asked by: JRom
There won't be any risks if you have plugged the unit to an outlet for charging. The noise cancellation feature will still be okay as well if plugged into a wall outlet.
