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
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

Summary: The Sony MDR-NC500D noise-cancelling headphones do a fantastic job of blocking out repetitive ambient noise. When listening to music they also acquit themselves well, with clear sound and a pleasant character.
Pros: Stylish and scratch-resistant exterior, comfortable padding, battery pack for extended use, good sound quality, noise cancelling works exceptionally well
Cons: Tight fit may annoy some, must be powered to work
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
