When I used to pitcrew in NA$CAR I wore these...
Quite a few bones more than these that Woot is offering but well worth it. The racing version quiets a herd of snarling, growling 850 horsepower Cup cars to a quiet little burble.
If Woots headphones work as well - you'll be very happy.

i actually got these the last time woot had them up. apparently i was one of the select few who had a working pair in the batch (many others weren't as lucky).
i'm no audophile, but i think the sound is excellent. the bass isn't overwhelming, but i think it is sufficient.
the noise canceling doesn't drown out 100% of the background noise; i used these on a flight and they reduced only about half of the overall 'plane noise'.
but still, for the price, they are a great deal!
i'm not a big fan of capitalization.

I bought this same pair when Woot had them for $60 not too long ago.
I like them a lot. Good sound quality and great comfort. Bose are better, but they are also $150 more. For the price you pay on here I'd say it's well worth it.

Say you work in an office in which noise traveled well. Oftentimes, you have people engaging in conversations or laughing, and it's distracting. It's sometimes hard to focus on the work due to the conversation 3 cubes down.
Given that situation, if you plugged these headphones into a CD player and listened to some ambient music, would these headphones cut out most of the background noise?
The girl next to me paid hundreds of dollars for a pair of Bose QuietComfort 3's, and loves them, but I don't really want to spend that much.
