About the Kicker CushNC
Sturdy noise-cancelers that bring that Kicker bass
The Kicker CushNC noise-canceling headphones play music wirelessly via Bluetooth.
Sturdy noise-cancelers that bring that Kicker bass
Here are some well-built noise-canceling headphones with some extra bass punch. I like that the Kicker CushNC wireless 'phones are unapologetically bass-heavy. Now don't get me wrong — the mids and vocals are clear and well-defined in the CushNC's fun, immediate soundstage.
But this is a set of headphones you'll never accuse of sounding too "polite." I know that big bass is not for everybody, but there are some musical moments that you want to feel as much as hear. And these Kickers hit hard.
Convenient features and easy controls
Music plays wirelessly from your phone via Bluetooth. And the active noise-canceling circuitry did a bang-up job of silencing the clunking and clanking of the HVAC system next to my home office. I also appreciated the raised, tactile buttons on the right earcup. It was easy to control music, calls, and volume without fiddling around too much.
Snug, well-padded fit
The CushNC headphones feel really solidly built for their price. Heavy-duty, but not heavy on the head. At first, I thought they fit a little too tight for my taste, but the thick ear pads helped cushion some of the clamp. And they stayed in place well. I was able to wear them for a good chunk of time without having to adjust them.

A 48" audio cable with an inline mic/remote is included for those times when you can't use Bluetooth, or you wish to conserve battery life. The headphones come with a Micro USB charging cable and a hard-shell storage case.
Earcups: The headphones come with a padded headband and thick over-the-ear cushions that seal out external noise and allow you to comfortably wear the headphones for hours. The large 40mm drive components provide a wide frequency range with powerful bass and clean, crisp highs.
Active Noise Cancellation: The headband and ear cushions provide a measure of acoustic noise reduction. When you need to block ambient noise, you can activate the easy-to-use Active Noise Cancellation feature by pressing the dedicated ANC button. The ANC function reduces ambient noise by 25dB.
Bluetooth: Built-in Bluetooth technology lets you wirelessly listen to your music and phone calls. CushNC headphones support the following Bluetooth profiles: A2DP, AVRC, and HFP.

On-board Controls: The CushNC headphones have music and phone controls on the right earcup. When using Bluetooth, these controls let you power on/off the headphones, increase and decrease the volume, play/pause your music, skip to the next or previous track, and answer/hang up your phone calls. The center "K" button also lets you access Siri or Google voice assistants with a one-second press.
