Do these work with and without the battery? Is there a noticeable difference in sound quality if it works without the battery(passive)?

I was pretty impressed by the noise cancelling of the QC15 and I've also heard great things about the Ultimate Ears ANC phones.
Hey, who turned off the lights?

Sadly the NC500D do not work without batteries, either internal or external.

Another good thing I can say is that many "lesser" noise-canceling headphones produce a "pressure" on your eardrums. Some people are sensitive towards that. These don't.
