Able Planet Traveler's Choice NC190 Headphones

Able Planet's Traveler's Choice Headphones are a more portable version of the Extreme Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones, which I reviewed last year. Like the Extreme's, the NC190 Headphones have excellent sound quality for their affordable price tag. Since these are called the Traveler's choice, their big draw is their portability. While the headphones at first seem large, they can be collapsed into a small easy-to-carry headphone like ball.  However, I do have a few gripes with the headphones. While the headphones come in what seems like every color under the sun, I much prefer the design of the Extreme's. Since the design is based entirely on which color you choose, the NC190's could either be a little boring or outrageous depending on which color you choose. As you can see below, I chose to go with the outrageous lime green ones. Another minor gripe was with the ear cushions, as I wish they could be a little softer. Besides these minor complaints, the NC190's are an excellent option for those looking to spend under $100.
