I own Bose Noise Cancelling headsets and do not want to risk taking them to the beach. I also do not find the ear buds to be comfortable. I have been searching for a more substantial set of headphones that I would not mind getting suntan oil or water splashed on. So far, these seem to fit the bill. If anything happens to them, I will just order another set (can't say them same for the Bose!). While these do not have the same sound quality as the Bose, for the price i paid for these headphones, I was not expecting them to be the same! I was actually quite pleased with the quality. These were a good find and work great for the environment they are used in. Although I typically use them to listen to audio books, I do use them for music as well
couple of hours spent in Internet looking for the best replacement of my 5+ years old Panasonic-RP-HC500

I have ordered my set of headphones after couple of hours spent in Internet looking for the best replacement of my 5+ years old Panasonic-RP-HC500.
My preferences was:
• High Level audio Quality
• Comfort when using
• External microphone for meetings
• ..and noise canceling as less important
Delivery was very quick and well packaged.
A headphone comes with very well made protective hard cover case, which I found very contented during traveling. Quality in general is very good. Sound is fantastic.. (I am using them with IPhone 6S+) and comparing with AKG-Y55 (my wife’s set) and Panasonic-RP-HC500. I found them very confortable for wearing even for long time.
NC function is switched On/Off by toggle switch on the front side. Hope switch is reliable enough, because I had an issue with the similar solution used by my old Panasonic NC .
I really enjoyed these headphones and would recommend to everyone who looking for HD audio and comfortable noise canseling headphones.
Indvidual, stylish, smart, and just superb in use
By atharine Kirby On 12 June 2016
Gosh these are gorgeous, the best I have so far tried. They are streets ahead in quality, presentation, ease of use, comfortable to wear and sheer good looks.
I like everything red anyway which is a head start. Vibrantly cheerful and unique, these are no run of the mill headphones. They are truly special and will give great pleasure for years to come. They would make a most acceptable gift.
The case they arrive in is the shape of a giant chocolate Easter Egg with the protective qualities of a cycle helmet, zipped up tight inside they would surely survive a normally catastrophic crash. At the press of a discreet catch, the headphones automatically tidy themselves up into a neat little shape, fitting perfectly inside. Hidden underneath the base of the case is a little black pouch containing two connecting leads, one with a microphone, both well made top quality leads with brass connectors.
I just love them so much I am wearing them all day, enjoying my music reproduced as perfectly as I have ever experienced. They stay in place as they should, such good little things that they are, I am running out of superlatives!
They are really excellent. Great packaging
By Jennifer Lee On 12 June 2016
My music tastes are not exceptional (or particularly bass heavy) - but everything I did test them on, from Mozart to The Piano Guys, from Bon Jovi to Disney I have been pleased with. The headphones provide a certain depth and clarity to my playlists that I find extremely enjoyable.
Having worn them on my daily commute to and from work, I can confirm they are very comfortable and even provide a bit of noise cancelling on the bus.
I really like these headphones, and I will certainly continue to watch Noontec's progress and future efforts.
Decent headphones for the price
By Robin On 12 June 2016
Inside the package the headphones are contained in a smart carbon fibre look hard case with a zip closure. Apart from the phones there's a fabric panel containing two audio jack leads (one red, the other black) both of which are flat in profile, the red one features a microphone and remote control for use with a phone. inside the pack there's a brief user manual with an invitation to register your purchase to extend the warranty by 6 months.
These corded headphones are light (approx. 235g) and very stylish. My sample is finished in red with a beige leatherette headband, black ear cups and stainless steel detail although there are 3 other colour combinations available. A key design feature is that the ear cups fold for transit and stowage in the case. Each of the earpieces is hinged so, in effect, it floats inside the headband optimising contact with your ears - important for ensuring good quality sound, in particular bass, also, it minimises sound leakage.
In use, I found the headphone very comfortable to wear even for long journeys and because sound leakage is low they're "commuter friendly". In addition they are adjustable for both angle and headband width so should fit most people and despite being an "over ear" design they aren't too sweaty either.
I've used these phones for quite a few hours now and I love the sound. The sound is realistic and spacious plus the bass is nice and taut. There's plenty of bass capability there but these Hammo Phones don't over emphasise it, however, if you like heavy bass and want to crank it up via your EQ setting they'll deliver without being stressed. Vocals and treble are well handled too - there's plenty of presence and realism without harshness. These audio attributes add up to a set of headphones that are really satisfying to listen to and over a long period.
An over bright sound means listening fatigue sets in quickly but these Noontec cans deliver a sound which is satisfying over the long term and I really like them. The supplied phone lead also works well with my mobile giving you control over music and phone calls with clear conversation in both directions.
These headphones from Noontec tick the boxes of presentation, quality, comfort and sonic performance affirmatively and, despite the fierce competition from other brands at this price point they hold up very well. Recommended.
Exceptionally good headphones
By Sid Nuncius On 12 June 2016
The sound quality is the critical thing, and it is quite outstanding to my ears. I use a playlist to test audio equipment which goes from 16th-Century choral music to London Grammar and covers most things in between. Pretty well everything sounds as good as I have ever heard it. Clarity and articulation are exceptionally good. The frequency response range on the Hammo S is 5Hz-30kHz, which is beyond the range of normal human hearing at both ends of the spectrum and gives a superb overall sound. It is beautifully balanced with crystal clear treble, wonderful rich middles and a fantastic bass response. They aren't bass-heavy or boomy, but they have a great bass kick when needed, and are incredibly rich and full even at the lowest frequencies. That great, sub-bass resonance in the second half of London Grammar's Hey Now really rolls through these, for example. Theorbo and viola da gamba really test bass response, and both have their full magnificent depth (and they have the sensitivity to allow you to hear the player breathing, too), a string quartet sounds just as though you're sitting among them, every instrument in an orchestra is crystal clear even in pieces like Sibelius's Karelia Suite which can sound horribly muddy if the equipment isn't good enough. Classic rock sounds great, acoustic music has a lovely airy, open sound...and so on. I don't mean to go on, but I really do think these are excellent.
The headphones are stylish, solid and well made, and fold up neatly. They are very comfortable indeed (I've worn them for hours at a stretch without any problem); they're also fully adjustable and provide a good sound-seal. You also get a very nice hard carrying case with a detachable clip, and two 1.2m cables, one plain and one with a microphone and switch for hands-free calls. The cables are a flat ribbon design so they don't tangle and create no friction noise at all.

I purchased these during the promo period and spent $30.00 less than advertised now. Looking back I would have paid the current asking price because I am very satisfied with these headphones.
I'm no audiophile, but I can say that these headphones sound amazing. The Highs are clear and the bass is deep and punchy providing a very good listening experience. I have listened to a variety of genre's and these Noontec's have yet to disappoint me.
The construction is solid and features metal support where needed. I have opened and closed these over a thousand times and they snap in place like the first day I bought them. The ear pads are very comfortable and can be worn for long periods of time without causing soreness on the ears. Although these "ARE NOT" noise cancelling headphones, they do a really good job in a passive cancelling to where surrounding noise is muffled quite a bit. It almost feels like you are wearing noise cancelling headphones.
I had to return the slimmer headphone cord because it hard a short. I contacted Noontec directly and they promptly sent me a replacement. They remained in contact until my replacement was received.
Overall I would purchase these again in the future.
Amazing value. Best sounding headphones you can buy for $100.
By bret osborneon January 4, 2016 On 12 June 2016
If value and getting the best sounding cans on a budget are important to you then the Hammo S's are the perfect choice.
I've been trying out different pairs of headphones over the past 6 months or so. I've order over half a dozen pairs ranging in price from these $100 Hammo's to $400 Hifiman's. I'm not going to tell you that these cans can reproduce the sound of three or four hundred dollar headphones but for $100 they're close enough.
If you're on a budget but still care about getting the best sounding headphones your money can buy then I wouldn't hesitate to try out these Hammo S's. I could go into descriptions involving sound stage and treble roll off and so forth but for $100 all you need to know is that you can't buy a better sounding pair of headphones for this price.
My sole gripe and for me it ended up being a deal breaker is that when I listen to music I can easily have my headphones on for 4+ hours and finding a pair of cans that fit well that still feel comfortable after that amount of time isn't easy. Unfortunately the Hammo's were only good for about 90 to 120 minutes of comfortable listening before my ears became sore. I doubt others or most even listen to their headphones for more then 2 hours at a time and you'll probably never experience the problem I had.
If you want the best sounding headphones that $100 can buy then these are the ones you're looking for.
Best Headphones Yet
By S. Polson on January 22, 2016 On 12 June 2016
These are the best headphones I have owned. Far surpassing the SMS Headphones by 50 Cent that I own and better than two pairs of Sennheiser headphones I have had for a few years.. Not only do they sound impeccable, they are also extremely comfortable. They also are noise blocking in their design. When I am listening to music at a reasonable volume. I can't hear anybody trying to talk to me, even couple of feet away. It is hard to describe the sound adequately, but for example, singing voices sound very realistic like I am in the control room at the studio. The full range of sound is balanced, without the overdone base that may headphones seem to have. I don't know if there is a burn in time like you sometimes hear, but they sound great with less then 10 hours on the clock so far. I did a lot of research before I purchased these, and it has paid off.
00 and I am happy. These Hammo S provide me with the quality ...
By Sheldon Duncan on March 9, 2016 On 12 June 2016
Fourth time is a charm I purchased the Idea headset twice and then the Ausdom MO8 I wanted noise canceling and Bluetooth for under $70.00 dollars. What I settled for was noise dampening non Bluetooth for over $100.00 and I am happy. These Hammo S provide me with the quality of sound I was looking for when I hook into my portable CD player that has mega bass. The sound of the bass is not overpowering and distorted like with the Idea's or when the mega bass is off you can still hear bass in every song unlike the Ausdom. The cups are soft and the tension keeps a lot of the noise down my test room was listening to music in the bathroom with the exhaust fan running to simulate airplane noise I didn't have to blow my eardrums out raising the volume to listen to music at an expectable level. Since Noontec's Bluetooth/Noise cancelling series is on ear, at this time I chose to just purchase a mini $20.00 Tran/Rec that provides me with Bluetooth and allows me to keep my over ear function. I might have lost some style points but style is in the eye of the beholder. To me the sounds coming through this headset is exactly what I was looking for I don't know if the 50mm driver make the difference or not but they weigh light enough that my 3hr plane ride should be a piece of cake next week
