Sound and noise canceling features are not bad. I flew JetBlue during the holidays and these came in very handy on the plane because they have the universal headphone jack for Direct TV. Anyway... as mentioned by the other reviews after about an hour or so you can really feel the pressure on your ears. Not horrible but I have a smaller head than most. Plenty of cushion, comes with a long extension cord. They also are very snug and don't move around.
