Just picked up a pair of brand new SBC HN110 headphones at Goodwill today for less than $9. About a year back I picked up the older SBC HN100 headphones and had to severely modify them to get any sort of sound reduction out of them... but the newer version seems to be pretty good. They took away the whole "plastic toy" feel to them by giving metal "wire" to hold the headphones together and put the cancelling control and power supply up in the headphones. Really ingenious seeing as the HN100's cords would always yank out of the saulder keeping them connected. Eee!!! Just when my old clips started dying on me.
