Excerpt: I saw these things at Best Buy and when I tried them out, I just knew that they weren’t about nothing. I tried them out and I didn’t get any type of noise cancellation at all. This bothered me because I wanted a pair of them. But I noticed that all the headphones I tried out weren’t really giving me the results that I wanted. So I figured it was how they were set up. I ended up buying the Sony Noise cancellation Headphones for $90.
Excerpt: I was a little hesitant purchasing this set of headphones , because I’d had a a pair of the MDR-NC6’s that went on the fritz-specifically, they began playing out of only one headphone, with no clear evidence of wiring problems on the other side-roughly a year after purchase. I’d failed to get the warranty coverage (let that be a lesson to us all), so there was nothing I could do about it.
Excerpt: The Sony Headphones are by far the best ones I've had. They work great with the computer and are very comfortable for prolonged use with very soft and thick padding for the ears. The extraneous noise cancelling feature also work well. The battery is simple to install and the directions for use are actually clear and well written. The headphones adjust easily no matter what your head size.
Excerpt: I first ordered a pair of these headphones through a recognition rewards program at work. I work in a cube environment and need to filter out the conversations and other distractions around me and these do that perfectly. I don't need the white noise feature and didn't find any added benefit from that. My wife borrowed them one day, got a lot more work done with the increased focus, so I bought this set from Staples.
Excerpt: Comfortable, good sound quality but the cord really should be longer. As long as I sit in front of my computer, everythings fine. If I turn around to get something from my desk drawer, it gets yanked off my head! But for the price it's a great deal.
Excerpt: I purchased these to use with my tablet on airplanes. When I got them, I tried them out in my home, and they seemed to work ok. However, once I tested them out on an airplane, they were useless. The noise cancelling was barely perceptible. Worse, with the sound turned up to the highest level, I could not hear the movie I was listening to over the airplane noise. I had to use the cheap little free airplane earbuds, which had far better reception.
Cons: Noise Cancelling Neglgibl, Noise Cancelling No Good, Poor Reception
Excerpt: Purchased Sony headphones for my daughter to use with her laptop, slate and iphone. She has had several different brands of headphones in the past and says the Sony headphones are the best ones she has ever used. For the price and quality in the price range we are very happy with the headphones.
