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: 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: 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: These headphones are very comfortable and effective. I work in a noisy open plan office and with noise cancelling on my colleagues voices seem very far away :) With music playing on a low volume, the background noise of the office is almost completely gone. Peace. Excellent at home too for cancelling out the hoover, washing machine etc. TV also to an extent. They come with a nice case and selection of cables.
Amazing, but only get the NC if you're going to use it a lot.

Summary: The sound quality is the best I've heard, and in my opinion the design is perfect! However, if you're not going to be using the noise cancelling a lot, then get the Sony MDR-1R. You can get them for about £150, and they are said to sound better, more comfortable and are a lot cheaper. ----About the noise cancelling---- When I bought these, I expected pretty much all sound to go away. That wasn't quite the case. Instead it only takes out the low frequencies.
Summary: Just come from a similar priced pair of noise cancelling headphones that, while were of great sound and build quality, had ear-cups that were far too small and caused physical pain (I have average-sized ears). Now have a pair of these Sony's and its a difference of night and day regarding comfort; I just might never take these off.
Summary: There are a number of very positive reviews on here, and while I agree with a lot of what is said I'd just like to point out that the sound changes considerably in Noise cancelling mode (Mids disappear, but the unruly bass is toned down). The noise cancelling is fine for low frequency sounds, but those with higher frequencies seem to be slightly accentuated.

Summary: Wer an einer befahrenen Straße ruhigen Musikgenuss sucht ist mit den Kopfhörern gut bedient. Ich habe die Kopfhörer auf dem Balkon bei vorbeifahrenden Autos auf Kopfsteinpflaster getestet, die Ruhe war nahezu gespenstisch. Dabei ausserdem noch top kristallklarer Sound. Das teilweise beschriebene Grundrauschen finde ich selbst bei leiser Klaviermusik vernachlässigbar, und ich bin da wirklich empfindlich.
