Sony MDR-NC500D

3 February 2009
  • Summary: The Sony MDR-NC500D headphones have the best noise-cancelling technology we've ever come across, and their design makes them very comfortable to wear for long periods. The bass response, however, isn't as good as it should be considering the high asking price
  • Pros: Lightweight construction; fantastic noise-cancelling performance.
  • Cons: Expensive; weak bass response.

Sony MDR NC500D

16 April 2008
  • Summary: The Sony MDR-NC500D Digital Noise Canceling Headphones may lighten the wallet, but they are a great option for frequent fliers and tetchy commuters who need superior noise cancellation.
  • Pros: The Sony MDR-NC500D headphones offer superior noise cancellation, solid sound quality, and a plethora of useful extras, including a battery pack for extended use.
  • Cons: The Sony MDR-NC500 headphones cannot be used without the noise cancellation activated; the tight fit may be uncomfortable for some users; and they're expensive.

Sony MDR-NC500D Review

3 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Sony did a bang-up job with the MDR-NC500D. Our major gripes — inability to turn off the cancellation, a poorly designed monitoring feature, and no sound without power — are offset by the headphones’ sound quality, accessory bundle, and digital noise cancellation.
  • Pros: Comfortable for long periods; good overall sound; supports store bought batteries
  • Cons: Expensive; cannot turn off the noise cancellation

TEST: Sony MDR-NC500D kutter støyen

21 August 2013
  • Summary: Totalt sett er vi veldig fornøyde, her får du et headset med god lyd, støyfjerning og godt utvalg av tilbehør. Da vi testet hodesettet i 2008 var det ikke til salgs i Norge. Nå er det imidlertid på plass, og prisene starter fra 2.400 kroner i de billigste nettbutikkene og rundt 2800 kroner i butikk.
  • Pros: glitrende støyreduksjon, bra lyd, god komfort
  • Cons: Høy pris, kan ikke spille musikk uten støyfjerning aktivert
