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: 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
4 weeks ago
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...
Summary: So I've been saving up for these pair of headphones for a while now and only just managed to get enough money to buy them. And I have to say, I got it out of the box and tried the sound straight away. What I noticed was the bass was a bit low for my liking but then I just went on the sound setting and turned the bass up and that seemed to have solved the problem!, The Digital noise cancelling is what really impressed me with these headphones.
Summary: Had my Beats Studio noise cancelling cans stolen after a long haul to Atlanta so needed to replace them. Was fortunate to find a duty free electronics retailer in another airport that had a wide range of NC headphones on stand for customers to test drive using their own music source. I moved through each of the headsets starting with the new eye catching Monster Inspiration through the Parrot ZIKs and Bose variants.
Summary: These are on the large side but cover the ear are very comfortable and achieve very good isolation. I like the two connection cords (1 x 3.5mm 3 way and 1 x 3.5mm 4 way so it can be used with my phone. Also the 5v micro USB makes charging easy. My commute is by train and bus which I think is more tricky to get right than plane where the jet drone is more constant?
