The QC25 and QC35 come with the inline mic cable. It works fine. The
problem is that without a feedback loop (as you'd find in pilots' headsets,
for example), you can't hear *yourself* very well, so can end up talking
too loudly. Sometimes I turn off the NR during calls because of that.

The upcoming generation of active noise reduction headphones have various
settings to mix in some outside sounds (also useful for things like
crossing the road safely). For most current headphones, you need an app
that mixes in some sound from the mic with sufficiently low latency. The
Windows mixer will give you the sound, but with an annoying delay.
