The first and most obvious problem with the Lost-Cauze Linx Audio
Active Noise Cancelling Headphones is that your friends and co-workers are going to want them. When I walked into my day job wearing these around my neck, the receptionist first made fun of me for bringing such large headphones to work (most people use small headphones or even ear-buds where I work), and then wanted to try them. Once she listened to them, she insisted that she borrow them and get them to me later. I did get them back, but for the rest of that day when she saw me, she asked me when I was going to give "her headphones" back to her. This must
be why they include the carrying case... to hide your Lost-Cauze Linx Audio
headphones from co-workers.
The only actual problem I noticed with the Lost-Cauze Linx Audio Active Noise Cancelling Headphones was that on the rare occasion, the process that was supposed to cancel out sounds would actually reinforce sounds that were in very low frequencies. In fact, my tests (which were far from scientific, mind you), seemed to indicate that what I was actually hearing may have been infrasonic frequencies that were being manipulated and transposed upward into the low bass range. I only encountered this effect twice. Once was when my wife closed the door of her shower, which I had earlier noted to resonate naturally at a low bass note. This effect was easily repeatable, and the bass sound that I heard was very low, to the point that it seemed more like I was "feeling" it, rather than "hearing" it. Additionally, it was very directional; the way I was facing, my right ear was oriented towards her shower, and it felt almost like someone had tapped on the headphones' right ear cup.
The other time I noticed this effect was when the garbage truck was driving around. I heard the garbage truck rumbling closer and took my headphones off to get up and go put some additional garbage out, only to find out that, without the headphones on, I could no longer hear the garbage truck. I put them back on and, yes, I could hear it again. I turned off the ANC feature and the sound was gone. This doesn't happen a lot, and, quite frankly, I thought it was kinda cool. It's a detractor for making things quiet and for listening to audio, but it was interesting that it was letting me hear things that I, otherwise, wouldn't have heard. All-in-all, the problems are far outshined by the features and performance. All of my co-workers were impressed by the headphones and then impressed all over again when they found out that the Lost-Cauze Linx Audio Active Noise Cancelling Headphones retail for $149.99 USD.
If you're looking for some good ANC headphones and you don't want to spend all of your cash, the Lost-Cauze Linx Audio Active Noise Cancelling Headphones are a no-brainer. Go get yours today.
