I probably use them for music only about half the time they're in, but being a physical barrier they work equally well for protection whether they're switched on or not. I wouldn't rely on them in a proper heavy industrial setting (quite apart from the valid point above about distractions at work), but for standing next to a planer/thicknesser and extractor they do the job quite nicely.
Yes and yes - the noise protection is physical from the foam earbuds, so it doesn't rely on them being switched on. It'll also keep working if they run out of battery. I've not tried using them for calls, but they've got the right features, including being able to answer calls from a button on the headset.gregmcateer":2bivz2ei said:Can I ask a couple of questions - with your isotunes, when they are switched on but no music is playing, do they still offer noise cancelling, or is it only if they are playing sound?
And secondly, do they have a Mic, so you can use your phone, too?
