Recently we told you about the Lindy NC-60 Headphones with Active Noise Cancelling technology. They have at last dropped through the Coolsmartphone Towers mailbox. What arrived was a nice glossy black box displaying the NC-60 in all their glory in a nice tight wrapper. Just like Christmas, the wrapper lasted two minutes until the hard back case of the Nc-60 was revealed.
In the pack, you get your detachable cable, an adapter and 2 x AAA batteries for the active noise cancelling feature. The headphones are a nice matt black with red inner covers over the cones. The over the ear cones were surprisingly not that big but that didn’t matter when it came to the test. The AAA batteries were fitted under the outer cover of the right cone and easily clipped into place. This also where you found a volume dial, a switch for the noise cancelling feature and a light to say it was on or not.
If you have ever read my previous headphone or earbud review, I am always looking for a wide range of sound without substituting the bass. The first test involved listening to Metallica – Hardwired to Self Destruct without the active power option, and to be honest, the headphones were solid with a good range and bass, therefore if your batteries in the headphones did die out, you were not stuck without anything to listen to.
The second test with active noise cancelling switched on. Once you flick the switch under the right ear cone, the sound is instantly boosted. You can hear the same range but much clearer without the need to mess around with the volume. The funny story is that I was testing these before work and my dear colleagues came in being their usual selfs – I did not hear a thing until someone touched my shoulder and I jumped! So Lindy, they certainly work!
For £59.99, I do not think you can go wrong for a solid pair of headphones with a very good noise cancelling feature.
