Rocketfish Atmos Noise-Cancelling Headphones Review

Specifications

The Rocketfish Atmos Noise-Cancelling Headphones are over the ear headphones. The MSRP is $149.99 for the headphones and they are available right now. The have 40mm drivers, Wolfson myZone ambient noise cancellation, and a rechargeable battery.

In Use

The Rocketfish Atmos Noise-Cancelling Headphones are nicely padded headphones that are comfortable to wear for extended periods. I had to reposition them after an extended period of wear for maximum comfort and they did get a bit warm. The active noise cancellation works very well, you can hardly hear people around you talking or listening to music.

This is great if you work around people that talk constantly or where there is a lot of noise. The ear cups are deep and comfortable; the active noise cancellation features are powered by a rechargeable battery that gets power from your USB port. I would prefer to see these powered by AA or AAA batteries. That way if you are traveling you can just swap batteries out and be fine to listen all you want.

If the battery is dead, you can listen to your music with the noise cancellation turned off. The headphones include a recharging cable, a carry case, and an adapter for airline use. They will plug into 1/4" and 1/8" devices.

The sound quality is very good with nice deep bass and crisp mids and highs. The sound is balanced very well and the headphones are great for all music types. They lack any control for your iPhone or an inline mic so you won't be able to listen to or make phone calls. Other than not being able to control your music or make calls these headphones are fully featured.

Verdict

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Very good noise cancellation
  • Good sound

Cons

  • No inline remote
  • No mic
 

Conclusion

If you can live with remembering to plug these in to charge the noise cancellation feature, you will find a lot to like with the Rocketfish Atmos Noise-Cancelling Headphones.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
