Genius GHP-04NC Noise-Cancelling Headphones

 

They're cheap, but are they cheerful?

Genius GHP-04NC

 

Comfortable noise-cancellers, but the sound just isn?t up to much

Great noise-cancelling ability; comfortable

Poor hazy sound; lack clarity

Genius GHP-04NC review

 

28 is a remarkably low price for noise-cancelling, over-ear headphones. The design looks more PC peripheral than personal audio, but it does have a well-padded headband and two comfy, properly articulated ear cups. It's powered by two AAA batteries,...

Genius GHP-04NC review

 

Genius is known for making budget computer peripherals and other accessories, and it's nice to see the company making a foray into the world of noise-canceling headphones. The big headline here is the price: The GHP-04NCs only cost $50, which is $300...

Affordable noise-canceling headphones; strong bass; carrying case included.

Lack sonic detail; not very comfortable; design looks a little cheap.

The Genius GHP-04NC noise-canceling headphones deliver strong bass and OK sound in a $50 package that includes a carrying case, but they a look a little cheap.

Earphones from Genius : Genius GHP-04NC headphones

 

While earbuds are popular, my travels around London still see a lot of people preferring Earphones and in fact it seems to me especially in noisy environments that such items are in fact more popular than they used to be.

The Genius GHP-04NC Earphones are available from the link below for £27.59 plus delivery (£3.99 when I entered my post-code)

GHP-04NC review

 

Noise-cancelling technology usually costs an arm and a leg, so we were intrigued to try the Genius GHP-04NC, which offer noise cancelling for £39.99

Excellent noise-cancelling for £40

Poor comfort, sound quality is only OK

Sound-wise, the headphones are OK. You sacrifice fidelity for the noise-cancelling tech - music quality is a bit muddy but perfectly passable for casual listening.

Genius GHP-04NC

 

Genius's GHP-04Nc headphones cancel a tiny bit of noise, but deliver thunderous bass—at an incredibly low price.

Outstanding bass response. Extremely affordable. Quality audio performance overall for price. Can be used in passive mode.

Weak noise cancellation. Somewhat uncomfortable to wear. Cable not detachable. Runs on AAA batteries.
