Unfortunately not. As redrat said, they actually make conversation clearer by blocking out ambient noise. Tried them at work once - it blocked out the hum of the computers very well, but that meant I could hear conversations from 20 metres away!icemann said:Can I get a pair for when my fiancee is nagging me ?
They would be worth their weight in gold
Well you have just removed the 4 post common recommendations, being Shure and Etymotic in-ear models, and Bose and Sony active noise cancelling models. So in my mind you are starting in position 5 on the top-10 list :roll: .Damien said:From my online research, I've seen a huge difference in the prices of what is out there. This is what I've decided: I want over-ear, as opposed to in-ear. I want active noise cancelling. From my own personal experience, I refuse to buy anything with either Bose or Sony written on it.
