WHAT WE LIKED:

build quality, audio reproduction, price and comfort
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Noise canceling turned on is almost a must, not perfect for games with noice canceling on, could use a locking mechanism for the for the flat audio cable jack
 
BOTTOM LINE:
NoiseHush has priced the i7 at a very affordable $99 and possibly less when on sale with online e-tailers. When you weigh the build quality, audio reproduction, price and comfort, the i7 is a very tempting proposition.

Packaging and Un-Boxing

The i7 comes in a simple black box with a large picture of the i7 centered on front. There are small features placed on all four corners of the box, and some were listed on the first page. One that was not listed is the claim of “Experience near Absolute Silence.” This is a pretty hefty claim to make and still remain affordable. We will see if NoiseHush can back this up shortly.

Located on the back is a few diagrams showing various pieces of useful information. Starting in the top left, there is a diagram of the i7 assembly, section by section. Below it you will see the corresponding section information. Over on the top right there is a simple drawing to go over features and locations of important buttons.

 

On the bottom left side, Noisehush made a very easy to understand drawing to explain how noise canceling works. The headphone mic samples external noise and the exact opposite sound waves are emitted by the headphones thereby canceling the ambient noise.

NoiseHush provided a hard shell case for the i7 when they are not in use. It comes with an elastic strap to hold down the i7 and a netted pocket to hold the attachments. I would have liked a little more padding on the inside, but it’s a minor quibble and doesn’t affect the headset at all.

The accessories are pretty standard for any higher-end headphones. There is flat audio cable with in-line mic, a ¼” stereo plug and an airline dual-line plug. The adaptors are all gold plated for maximum connectivity.

    Thanks for the thorough review of these headphones. I’ve been looking for awhile for noise canceling headphones that DON’T cost $300 but still have reasonably good performance. The Noisehush I7’s appear to fit the bill nicely.
