  • Excerpt: Sound isolation is excellent. The headphones give a nice warm sound with decent bass, but will distort at high volume from an iPhone playing music. The warm sound quality is easy to listen to and does not fatigue the ears with overly boosted bass or hiss from treble. Very nicely done...

Eggcellent sound, flimsy headband.

Victoria P., Newegg
16 January 2012
  • Summary: I'm rating this headphones only with two eggs because of the cons I mentioned, the notorious weakness in both the headband and the clips of the carrying case, and because I can't believe they broke after 4 months, but I can't deny that the audio quality has no comparatives, the music comes to life when using this model, and the noise cancelling feature works flawlessly, I tested some more expensive headphones and none compares to the crispness of this, bass, middles and...
  • Pros: Highest quality audio possible; music is superb when listening with this ones; internal amp; noise cancelling; rechargeable battery; external battery compartment in case you run out of charge from the internal one; mini jack connector and adaptor; hard carrying case.
  • Cons: The headband is really weak and flimsy, it broke after 4 months or so under normal use, I'm very obsessive taking care of my gadgets, not to say taking care of a 450 dlls headphones, and Sony said they could not be replaced because they are considered an "accessory", and I thought: "a 450 dlls headphones are just an accessory?".

  • Excerpt: You will be glad these headphones have a "Monitor" button so you are able to listen to what people say to you. Otherwise you'll hardly hear them. Even switching them on in an apparently quiet office environment gives astonishing results. You can't say you've experienced...

Oustanding for ham radio

W6IZT, eHam.net
11 April 2009
  • Summary: I travel extensively and purchased these to use while on planes. The previous noise cancelling headphones that I had, Sony NC60 were terrible for ham radio use. The NC500C is simply amazing to use for ham radio. The noise cancelling properties are best in class, they are confortable, sensitive, and the sound reproduction is excellent. At the price they are expensive but not much more that the comparible Bose product.

  • Excerpt: Форма наушников просто идеальна, отлично сидят и не мешают. Шумоподавление со своей задачей справляется, но не стоит ждать от этой функции чудес. Начисто глушатся шумы улицы, транспорта и прочий надоедливый фон, но от громкого шума не спасает. В целом покупкой доволен.
  • Pros: Внешний вид., Комплектация., Качество сборки., Отстёгиваемый кабель., Шумоподавление.
  • Cons: Не работает без шумоподавления (без зарядки)., На кочках и ухабах в общественном транспорте слышны щелчки (отголоски громкого лязга).
