Summary: I tried out the headphones. The sound quality is quite good and they fit well on the ears. I wish that the Sony designers had thought of putting some cushioning material around the headband (it is hard plastic). Wearing the hard band on my head on a 14 to 15 hours flight is somewhat daunting. I will have to test the noise cancellation on the next flight I take. When tested at home, I could still hear the TV that was not at high volume.
Summary: Pros : Foldable headphones which makes it easy to carry Pretty much comfortable headphones even though I got big ears and big head Good isolation from the outside sounds and also people surrounding you won't hear much of your music Cons : Noise-canceling option not that great : - When you activate the option, you hear a little difference from the ambiant sounds but not that much - I have the impression that all it does is giving a better bass sound to the headphones...
Summary: Pros: -light weight. -fold up very small very compact. -sound is good -noise cancelation is works. Haven't tried on a plane but tested it at home with a loud fan and seems to work. - comes with bag to store headphones -price is good compared to other noise cancelation headphones. Cons: -good sound but not great -seem very fragile. But maybe stronger than they look -not a tight fit. Not for active use. -switch for noise cancelation doesn't seem high quality.
Summary: These headphones were a bit of a disappointment. Whilst they do reduce background noise, you can still certainly hear most noises such as passing traffic, people talking etc. However, what is worse is that they are incredibly uncomfortable after more than 10 minutes of wear - they seem to squeeze down on my skull and give me a terrible headache.
Summary: I really like these headphones because they are light weight and can fold. I think they are more of a noise reducing than cancelling. My criticism is they don't cup the ear so slide off easily.
Summary: These are, without doubt, the worst headphones I have ever listened with, or without, the noise cancelling switched off. Turn it on and the volume increases giving the illusion that background noise decreases. Their sound is truly horrible!
Summary: They are a reasonable noise cancelling headphone for the price. The additional accesories are welcome so they can be used in aeroplanes, but they are not all that comfy to wear. If they were padded across the top band they would be more comfortable to wear for a shaven headed person like myself. They do a reasonable job of noise cancellation for the price so I am satisfied, but no more than that.
