The headset is great, featuring NFC to sync to phones via Bluetooth, according to a few reviews I've read its the best value for Active Noise Cancelling headphones.
So, everything i good then? No, there's a battery saving feature in these headphones, as soon as you remove them from your head the ANC turns off.
Normally this isn't a problem, unless you, like me, have dreadlocks, result? well the ANC randomly switch of the while wearing them, incredibly annoying as this also change the bass.
This morning I fixed this.
Headphones disassembled, you probably don't have to go to this extreme. The part you want to get to is just behind the soft earpieces, use a plastic guitar pick or one of those plastic phone opening things. Be careful, I broke one of tabs holding the earpieces.

The fix is really simple, all you have to do is solder 10k resistors between the copper pads above and below the speaker elements.

The headphones measures the resistance between these points to determine if you or anything else is close by.
I googled like a maniac to find a fix for this and couldn't find any, so here you go.
Note, I can still turn the ANC off by holding down Volume Down and Previous Track (Both lower buttons on the headphones)
