This is the second pair of Er6c's I've owned. Unfortunately, I left the first pair on an airplane. I owned that pair for about a year.
I have also owned a pair of Sony noise cancelling headphones that cover your ears -- like the Koss ones that are popular now. I paid about $250 almost 10 years ago. They work great and I enjoyed them. However, when traveling, space is at a premium. Therefore, when a friend told me about the Er6's, I gave them a try. I must admit, I was scepticle at first. How could something so tiny, drown out the airplane noise. As importantly, I couldn't beleive they could deliver any real bass. WRONG!
These are fantastic. Vs the Sony's or Koss (which I haven't worn), they block ambient noise equally as well. The bass is unbelievable. The bonus features are that they are really, really small and lightweight and are priced significantly less than full size noise cancelling headphones. It takes a little training to learn how to "seat" them in your ears. If not properly "installed", they don't work well. This is a minor startup issue that is quickly learned.
I recommend the ER6's 100%.
