Summary: Really nice cans. Obviously lovely build and design as a premium product from Sony with a metal band and soft faux leather, great "warm" sound with all that good stuff, sound cancelling is effective for bass frequencies i.e. in a car or train it's perfect, but tends to cut out some of the depth of sound. Still, great headphones with cables that magically untangle themselves and a smart bag.

Summary: Noise cancelling, sound and comfort are brilliant. Really happy with them. You can immerse yourself in the movie, they really insulate you from the outside world. One thing to note is that they are quite large, especially with the case. I commute weekly by train, 3 hours each way. Hand luggage space is therefore not an issue but if you are flying and trying to avoid checking in bags then you might find these too large.
Summary: Excellent sound quality. Very comfortable. Detachable audio cable with microphone is a great feature. Microphone is excellent quality. Noise cancelling is easily on par with the more expensive Bose products. The built-in rechargeable battery lasts a very long time too. Great product for the price.
Superb sound and build quality. N/C works well. If your looking for a fantastic set of N/C Headphones, you've just found them.

Summary: These Sony Headphones are far superior to my Bose QC15 in every way. The build quality and attention to detail is superb, and the sound is just amazing. My Bose Headphones lasted just over a year, the ear cups fell apart, then the left side bracket broke. Absolute rubbish for a set of Headphones costing this much money. No more Bose products for me. I know Sony products are good as I own many of them, but these Headphones exceeded my expectations.

Summary: The noise cancelling is brilliant, ventilator (I believe it would be the same for aircraft engines) noises are (at least to me) perfectly cancelled. Typing noises are also greatly reduced when the noise cancelling is on. I am however, not sure about the battery status indication system. However, the music appears to be played in a lower quality when the aforementioned mode is turned on. While this could be bothersome to some, I still find the overall experience pleasant.
Summary: I bought these headphones on the strength of the reviews on here...what a big mistake that was. Firstly, there is a button setting that allows you to switch on the `noise cancelling' mode. That was great for the first two weeks or so that it worked. It doesn't anymore. Secondly, although the build seems great, it is actually quite heavy and I find my ears sweating after about 5 minutes.
Summary: Very good sound quality, noise cancelling is excellent on busy trains or buses, loud environments. Really made me appreciate my music more! Only downside i would say is the problem common to all nosie cancelling headphones i guess, wearing them outside when windy and turned on produces a lot of extraneous noise from the microphones misinterpreting the wind noise. Not a great setback considering the excellent quality of the headphones build and sound!

Summary: I got these to replace my 11 year old Bose noise cancelling headphones which had fallen to pieces. The technology must have moved on because I find the Sony phones better than I remember the Bose ones being when they were new. Other reviewers point out that they don't cancel noise in the speech frequencies. This is correct but it is also pointed out in the Sony instructions. However, I find that it does reduce speech a bit.
