Glad to read your review.

I don't really understand how the cancelation works. When I flip the switch, like you, my sense is that the volume increases by a notch, which seems like a "trick" for improving the signal rather than true cancelation.  Regardless, they sound good either way. So this is more of my skepticism shining through rather than a genuine complaint about the headphones.

Grats!

That does seem pricey. Nice sounds, though.

You don't mean a single song on repeat, right? If so, then 4'33" is a creative and perfect answer.

Wow!  That 23 Degrees piece is great. Had not heard it before.

Agree! Very nice.

I almost listed that Ghost and Tape release! It is great.

If you come across anything else that you're particularly fond of, please repost. I love exploring new sounds. There is a nice Porya Hatami release on Dronarivm too.

Steve Roach - Painting in the Dark
This is fantastic! Much like the cover art, the sounds gradually morph and bleed into one another in fascinating ways. I agree with Ekstasis that the one weak part is track 2 which has a lot of chaotic electronics, much like Indigo Shift from in Etheric Imprints. But the chaos works a bit better here because it is situated in the context of other electronics and is not salient in the mix.
https://steveroach.bandcamp.com/album/painting-in-the-dark

Steve Roach - Fade to Gray
This is okay, but goes on too long without any obvious metamorphosis. I suppose the same can be said for other longform works by Roach, but there isn't a "hook" here to grab me.
https://steveroach.bandcamp.com/album/fade-to-gray

Jaja - Beyond the Horizons
New digital release from Jana. Four beautiful tracks that bring to mind stars and the limitless.
https://jajaouterspace.bandcamp.com/album/beyond-the-horizons

Cousin Silas - Dronescape 035
Wonderful bedtime ambience. Digital only.

Agree, Arrival was fantastic. And the soundtrack, by Johann Johannsson, is spectacular as well.

I'm also looking forward to the new Bladerunner, but I'm skeptical about whether it will be as compelling as the original.

I thought it would be fun to carry on drone on's tradition of asking people to list some of their favorite releases of the year. It doesn't have to be a list of 10 per se, but I'd love to know what really stood out for people so I can insure that I didn't miss anything that deserves a good listen.

Here are some of my favorites from 2016. The first four are my absolute favorites of the year; the rest are listed in no specific order.

Steve Roach and Robert Logan - Second Nature
Unlike anything in the Roach catalog. I love the serene, Budd-like quality of the piano and the way the synths wash over those notes like waves over stones.
https://projektrecords.bandcamp.com/album/second-nature

Alio Die - Seamlessly Bliss
Pure and deep ambient bliss with Stefano's distinctive signature sounds.
https://aliodie.bandcamp.com/album/seamlessly-bliss

Ishq - Space Simulator
Six longform ambient-drone pieces delivered from outer space.
https://virtual1.bandcamp.com/album/space-simulator

Nacht Plank - Alien
This is such a unique, odd, and quirky recording: modular experiments with alien melodies.
https://nachtplank.bandcamp.com/album/alien-2

Mick Chillage - (M)odes
Such great tracks on here, and a lot of ground covered, including drifting ambient and an up-tempo closing.
https://mickchillage.bandcamp.com/album/m-odes

Autumn of Communion - Broken Apart By Sunlight
This is easily one of the better AoC releases.
https://autumnofcommunion.bandcamp.com/album/broken-apart-by-sunlight

Jacob Newman - Biospherica
Bubbling and glitchy ambient. CD coming on Carpe Sonum in 2017.
https://jacobnewman.bandcamp.com/album/biospherica

Remember - Route Back Home
Technically released in 2015, but the CD came out in 2016. Ambient vapourwave inspired by lost love, wanderlust, and rainy nights in the city.
https://dreamcatalogue.bandcamp.com/album/--22

Forrest Fang - The Sleepwalker's Ocean
I'm especially fond of the Sleepwalker's Ocean suite, as well as the longform track on the second disk. Lots of depth, and chock full of interesting sounds.
https://projektrecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-sleepwalker-s-ocean

Andrew Heath - Europa
Found sounds and field recordings mixed with ambient textures. Each track is like a sonic tapestry.

Yay, Alio Die.

Been listening to his two new ones a lot around here: An Unfathomable Convergence and Imaginal Symmetry. The first one feels like an extended mix of Seamlessly Bliss. It is good, but it makes me want to listen to SB instead (which is one of my favorites of the year). Imaginal Symmetry is beautiful and is my favorite of the two new releases. Again, it has some familiar motifs, but the sounds flow nicely and have a nice meditative quality.

Actually they are not in stock in the shop I bought them for yet I can buy them from other shops for more expensive price but I think  I will wait, cause the am185 is getting bundled with the Huawei Mate 9 pro in sweden so I think a lot of people will sell them cheaper

Is the sound quality worth the price ?

I'm not an audiophile, so I'm probably not a good judge of that. But they sound nice--better than my other earphones. I wanted to try these because I hadn't used noise canceling earphones before. The sound does sound "enhanced" in that mode, but I can't notice a difference in what is and isn't being filtered out.

Ekstasis: What did you think of the HUAWEI earphones? I got a pair and am really liking them.

Two from the Archives label:

Warmth - Essay
Slow moving ambience, anchored with some deep-bass melodies.
https://archivesdubmusic.bandcamp.com/album/essay

Gallery Six - Underwater Paradise
Serene, yet glitchy with its occasional water-sample overlays.

Aglaia - Latitude
Lush ambient textures that shift and transform in beautiful ways. As usual, this is just the right blend of experimental and ambient.
