About the Product
Optimised 40-mm neodymium drivers for high-fidelity sound Each speaker driver is carefully hand picked, tuned and tested before being paired to ensure the most balanced natural sound. The 40-mm drivers utilise high-power neodymium magnets to deliver true high-definition sound in a wide dynamic range, right down to the minutest details. Compact multi-way folding for easy carrying and storage The Fidelio NC1's lightweight, slim and compact foldable construction in a stylish design makes it the perfect travel companion. With multiple ways of folding the headphones, you can decide how the headphones can fit efficiently in your travel bag or even in the pocket of airline seats. Specially tuned for consistent high-fidelity sound The noise cancellation feature of the Fidelio NC1 is specially tuned with optimal sound performance in mind. Challenging the perception that noise-cancelling headphones cannot deliver high-performance sound, the NC1 is engineered to deliver the best audio quality whether you're in a quiet or noisy environment. In-line control and mic switch between music and calls With the in-line control and mic, you can easily switch between your music and phone calls. Fidelio's superb noise cancellation lets you enjoy crystal clear calls even in bustling environments.
QuietComfort® 25 headphones are engineered to sound better, be more comfortable and easier to take with you. Put them on, and suddenly everything changes. Your music is deep, powerful and balanced, and so quiet that every note sounds clearer. Even air travel becomes enjoyable, as engine roar gently fades away. No matter how noisy the world is, it's just you and your music—or simply peace and quiet.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Philips Fidelio NC1 Noise Cancelling Headphones 40-mm drivers losed-back
  • Not as bulky as other headphones
  • The weight of these headphones are light weigh compared to the BOSE QC.
  • The over the ear design is comfortable to wear and I would be curious about the over the ear version of this headphone. I recommend this product.
  • The headphones fold up nicely and compactly in this case that looks about the size of a sunglass case
  • I wish there was a wider headband and a little more cushion
Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones for Samsung and Android devices, Black
  • Comfort- light weight, fit nicely on the head and over the ears
  • The look of these headphones are something you would not be ashamed to wear out in public. Materials used for construction seem to be high quality for headphones
  • So quiet, comfortable and light weight
  • Looked great but didn't fit my head or ears I am large in size and these are made for normal sized people.
  • My only complaint is the size. I have a small head and as small as they go is not enough

What customers say about "Features"
Philips Fidelio NC1 Noise Cancelling Headphones 40-mm drivers losed-back
  • I like you can use cord or plug in a bluetooth adapter, so you can use on all devices
  • They get 90 - 95% of engine and wind noise on airplane, but you still can hear announcements.
  • Noise reduction matches the best headphones I've had, including BOSE.
  • No batteries to go bad unexpectedly. You charge them from time to time and they are all set.
  • You have to buy a bluetooth adapter (really not that bad) if you have bluetooth only devices.
  • Noise cancellation introduces a lot of static noise, easy to notice in a silent room
Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones for Samsung and Android devices, Black
  • Noise canceling - best noise canceling headphones that I have found. They are not magic so they will not cancel out all noises but they come really close.
  • Headphones come in a handy little case to keep them in while they are being transported or stored.
  • Easily paired to my iPhone and iPad. I can listen to my audiobooks and can't hear my husband snoring at all!
  • Ear cups do a good job at passively blocking external noise
  • The battery life for the noise cancellation is pretty short.
  • I also don't recommend them for teleconference calls because you can't hear yourself talk and apparently the noise cancelling caused some sort of interference so people on the call with me said there was a lot of static when my line wasn't muted.
  • Non-lithium ion batteries... I bought some rechargeable batteries but it would be nice to just have a built in battery.
