Phiaton PS 210 BTNC Conclusion
While I found the fit of the Phiaton PS 210 BTNC headphones to be problematic, a little research will tell you that I'm the exception and not the rule. The fact is that, sonically, the PS 210 BTNC stands up to many headphones of the same price that don't have noise cancelling and Bluetooth 3.0. The half in-ear design is very unique and should help keep the headphones in place for most people. The noise cancelling works nearly as well as the others I've tested and the wireless connection doesn't depreciate audio quality appreciably. With the ability to bypass the wireless if the battery dies, and the Phiaton PS 210 BTNC are easily the most flexible headphones I've tested. With very good audio quality, a full suite of features, and a unique design, the Phiaton PS 210 BTNC headphones definitely get my recommendation.
