As far as active noise cancelling headphones go, they are almost never worth their money to me. However, these, especially when obtained on a Daily Deal, was superbly matched for value. They have a very fair physical isolation as a result of the soft fit. Sadly the earcups don't go over the ear, but more "on" the ear, but does a good job. The headband hurts me after a few hours of use.
As for the cancellation, it is superb for it's price. I would bet they are about 70% as good as the Bose QC25, for about 20% the price. I keep a set of AAA's charged, and replace frequently, so not sure of the true life of a battery, but so far, very good.
I'd say do it, this is for sure worth it, and they won't be around forever :)

Good product, loving it. However note that the ear pieces may be uncomfortable for people with larger ears.

I do not have anything to compare it to for noise cancelation but I was very impressed with it on that aspect, although I did expect more. constant sound is blocked perfectly but not so much individual speech, which is totally understandable if you understand how the technology works. In terms of sound quality I am not impressed, being used to studio quality headphones. That said it is definitely not bad and I would definitely encourage anyone that is in the market for noise canceling headphones to get these, for this price.
