Excerpt: These ear buds do pretty much what I was expecting of them. I bought them to put under some serious noise blocking ear muffs and was hoping that the noise cancellation feature would deaden the sound even more (mowing the lawn). Unfortunately the noise cancellation feature is minimal. In a totally quiet setting you can hear a difference when the noise cancellation is turned, it is a minor difference.
Excerpt: Sound quality: As good as can be expected at this price range. Noise canceling can be heard if in a quiet area, but then you don't need it anyway. Design and form factor: they fit really well, the cable could be longer, I like to wear the battery box at my belt, and the cable is just long...
Excerpt: I do a lot of flying over the course of a year and noise canceling headsets are a must. In the past I've used Bose but I get ear fatigue after a while and they take up more room in my briefcase. The MDR-NC13's don't remove as much noise as the Bose but do a great job of filtering the low end rumble of a flight. The headphones also are great for making phone calls in a noisy environment. The package comes with dual pin adapters that some airlines use.
Excerpt: use it specific for air travel. reduces all noice like earplugs that I used before and lets you enjoy movies/music and even sleep. fits perfetly in my ear. downside may be that they are quite big and stick out a bit from your ear.
Excerpt: I own the NC7 which is the headphone version that is made by Sony. I wanted an earphone option, and this have worked equally as well. They offer about 80% noice-cancellation. You will still hear engine noise when sitting on the plane, but because they are in ear, they will be more effective than headphone versions of the same make. Earphones produce good bass, and the sound quality is very good. The sound is very smooth.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Headphones work well. Noise cancelling is quite good however it does have an impact on overall volume when enabled and i find better sound from not enabling the noise cancelling feature and just turning volume up.
Summary: Amazing quality sound, great noise cancelation. The only downside is the length of the cord. I found myself literally tripping over it sometimes. This is probably the only reason that led to its downfall of 2+ years of use.
