Comfortable, great sound, shuts out the world around me
16 January 2013
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.
Excerpt: <html xmlns=""> The Sony General Noise Cancelling Headphones are Awesome! Wether your a Music lover or just trying to drown the sound of annoyances, these headphones are for everyone. The sound Quality is great. There is a switch on the headphones that if you turn it on then it makes the headphones sound great.
Summary: These headphones are great if you need NC and also for non NC use - these are my portable headphones - I prefer the non NC sound but the effect of the noise cancelling on flights and in the is just excellent. At the current price they are a bargain and come with a great carry case and additional cables and adaptors. I have had nuemerous NC headphones but these are the most comfortable and best sounding.
Excellent Sound Quality, Comfortable and Well Made
18 March 2014
Summary: As the title states these head phones offer all the features that you would expect from a £200+ pair of headphones. The sound quality is excellent, although turning on the Noise Cancellation does drain the sound a little, and they have a prestigious feel to them. Pros: --------------- Sound Quality is Excellent They are supremely comfortable, in the right position ( explained below) The noise cancellation is effective, if not quite in the same league as the Bose QC15's...
Summary: Having never spent any real money on headphones I decided to dive in at the deep end with these headphones after having read countless reviews and seen what else is on offer in this price bracket I decided to take the plunge. Upon receiving the item the product simply oozed with quality and a premium feel.
Summary: I got these for my recent birthday to replace a 10 year old cheap (but quite adequate) Maxell noise cancelling headphones. I do have a lot of sony products (TVs, surround sound, cameras, camcorders, playstations, etc.) one can always trust they just make a well thought out, well designed system. The headphones are extremely comfortable around the ear. Ergonomics, check! As a hobbyiest musician, sound has always been of the utmost importance to me.
Finally a good pair of Headphones with noise cancelation
11 November 2013
Summary: I must say, since I need to travel frequent I've been considering a pair of noise cancelation head phones. Problem was not always the prise, but the quality that they provided. I've tried quite a few times the test pairs in a lot of shops and the results were: Bose - although it kills a lot of the noise it always felt like I'm gone puke the moment I turned the noise cancelation.
Summary: Where do I start with these headphones? I've had many headphones over the years and I have to admit that these are best that Ive had. These were bought to replace a pair of Bose QC15 and until then I thought that nothing could touch them. Once you handle these, you'll instantly see that the build quality is pretty substantial. However that build quality does come at a price, and that is the weight.
Summary: This item was tested in a local technical issue with several other products featuring same abilities. Sony MDR1RNC was the winner. I decided to try it. The power supply and endurance of this divide is incredible. It lasts several days of using and the re-charging is easy with the charger of your iPhone, iPad and iPodTouch. Sony is perfect for my music ambience. It produces deep bass and clear highs and all of this is in a good balance.
Summary: I firstly had a pair of Bose QC15 but lost these on a recent rip so decided on a change and bought the Sony's, I nearly didn't having read a review by a customer saying the noise cancelling was poor, we let me assure you it is very good at least equal to the Bose! The noise it blocks is a slightly different frequency so to some people they will appear better (this is myself included) and some people will prefer the Bose but there is very little in it either way both are...
