PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The NC300B headphones have an around the ear design; this provides some passive noise canceling if you don't have the active noise canceling turned on. The headphones feel very well built and look like they cost a lot more than they actually do.
The inside of the ear cups are well padded for extra comfort. The cups are also quite adjustable by rotating or extending them to get the best possible fit.
On the right ear cup are the controls, which are as simple as can be – an on/off switch and a light to indicate power. Also note the 3.5mm socket on the left ear cup.
Also on the right ear cup is where a single AAA battery is inserted for the active noise canceling. The headphones will still work even without this feature activated, there just won't be as much background noise eliminated.
The headband is well padded and also adjustable to fit different head sizes. During testing I could barely feel that the headband was there, yet the headphones still felt secure.
