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.
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: 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.
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.
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

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.
