    Hi.

    Can anyone comment on the Sleek-Audio's ability to block out outside noise?

    I vagully read one review that stated that they did not block out much noise. I'm coming off a pair of Seinheizer CX300s that blocked out a far amount of noise, but I wouldn't really like to get a headphone that blocks out much less noise. I'm going to be going on a very long flight fairly soon, and I don't want a headphone that will not block out the sound of the engines very well (flying with the CX300s was a dream!)

    These headphones really interest me right now, but I wanted to get some more opinions on how much noise they block out.

    Can anyone comment?

    Thanks a bunch!

    They block out more noise than the CX300s. In terms of noise attenuation they are a bit better than my Westone UM2s which are rated at -26 dB. So a rough estimate would be around -26 to -30 dB.

    Thats great, thanks!

    These headphones are highly interesting. I've ordered some more CX300s for the time being (can't beat them at the price), but I'm really sitting here at work drooling at the Sleek phones :)

    Think you've just helped poked a £130 hole in my bank account ;)

    Sorry about the wallet though.

    Would you know by any chance how this would compare to the Q-jays, Phonak Audéo PFE, or the Future Sonics Atrio M5?
