I'm so glad I bought these!
I am neurodivergent, let's start with that. I get sensory overload extremely easily, especially now that everyone is home all the time because of COVID. I needed peace and quiet from all the noises that happen when people are around more often than my previous headphones could provide. I decided on these and I'm very glad I did.
The sound is beautiful (if you're a Zelda fan, I highly recommend wearing them while playing BOTW - it's a completely new experience) and the noise-canceling is wonderful. My old headphones had noise-canceling but it was this incredibly loud white noise sound that made whatever I was listening to sound tinny and far away and I hardly ever used it, which defeated the purpose entirely. These headphones can even drown out the sound of the dishes, even when I'm the one doing them, and the vacuum, even when I'm the one running it. It's amazing.
A lot of things I encounter in my day-to-day life really bother my sensory sensitivities and now all I have to do is grab my headphones and I'm fine. So not only are these great for experiencing my favorite media with better quality sound, they help me navigate my sensory issues in a way that avoids panic attacks and melt-downs and that's a really big deal to me.
