I do own several earphones and headphones but none of them have noise cancellation function. Having noise cancellation at such a low price is amazing, it's so good. Now I don't have to crank up to volume all the way to maximum while traveling through metro which saves my ear from damage and improve music listening experience too. Inline controls are nice and quality of cables are also very good. It feels like kevlar cables used in high end studio earphones. Ear loops comes very handy in securing the fit and gives confidence of running on treadmill without any worry. Nice quality product.
