The Sony Noise Canceling Headphones work well on Planes

Saxguy, Viewpoints
13 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought a pair of Sony Noise Canceling headphones in advance of an airplane trip. They did a decent job of reducing the airplane noise They did a decent job of reducing external noise, basically by creating a low-level hum that made it much less noticeable. However, once the external noise source is gone, the hum remains. So, without any noise to cancel, these head phones do not osund as good as good headphones without the noise canceling feature.

Comfortable, great sound, shuts out the world around me

  • Excerpt: I've owned Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones for years now. For the price, they're among the best in their category. You might be able to get a bit higher sound quality by going with Bose, but that's if you have the dough to spend. These have a comfortable foam padding that encases my ear so that I can't hear what's going on even in the same room. I slip these on and escape into another world of music.

Average set of headphones

  • Excerpt: Sony's Noise Cancelling Headphones are a middle of the road product that really doesn't outperform its competitors by much other than its lower price. The headphones are battery-powered and generate negative sound waves that counteract noises in the environment, but the effect is more like having your music cushioned on a thin layer of white noise.

Sony MDR-NC40 Headphones: not bad, not great

oh-marco, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: Reviewing the Sony MDR-NC40 headphones (product title was vague). I am a frequent traveler on 4+ hour flights, so killing time watching movies/TV shows on my Sony PSP or listening to music on my iPod is an absolute MUST. After struggling with earbuds against the constant engine noise (not to mention plane talkers and screaming babies), I decided to pick up a pair of noise canceling headphones.

Decent Headphones

  • Excerpt: These headphones sound great but they are bulky and do not travel well.  I would not recommend them for a traveller or for a commuter as they are so  bulky.  The noise cancelling portion is what makes them to bulky and hard to use.  On the reverse the headphones themselves stay in your ears pretty well.   There is also a battery that is needed and of course not included.

Good sound without outside noises

  • Excerpt: My wife and I take our Sony Noise Canceling headphones whenever we go on vacation. With an iPod and splitter, we connect with each other as we listen to our favorite tunes. While avoiding the roar of jet engines or loud people at the pool of our favorite resorts, we get totally relaxed. The quality of the sound is good but the selling point was the price.

Very good sound quality

Robodent, Amazon

  • 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.

These Phones are the Real Deal

hobbsy, Amazon

  • Summary: Wow these are special They look good and the quality is evident as soon as they are switched on. I have used in the ear, on the ear, wireless and Bluetooth but in my opinion these leave others standing. In use the phones bring out every level to the point where instruments can be singled out and the separation is superb. In this life you get what you pay for I recommend that anyone who enjoys listening to music has a look at these before deciding on which phones to buy.
