Sony Noise cancellation Headphones

sacback, ReviewStream
25 July 2014
  • 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 …

Sony Noise Canceling Headphones MDR-NC7

Nick Addison, ReviewStream
25 July 2014
  • 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 …

Overpriced

David N., Newegg
28 October 2013
  • Summary: Overall i think these headphones would be a great pair of traveling headphones, IF... They where to lower the price to around $20 to $30 and not label them as "noise canceling" but as something like "sound improving" headphones.
  • Pros: Easily fold-able into a small size. Stylish. Good cord quality. Angled connector.
  • Cons: Cheap plastic parts lead to creaky noises when moving around. Ear-cups are too large for my ears and a large amount of them is hanging behind my ears, i have normal sized ears. The "noise canceling" feature cancels no noise tat i can tell, it does however improve the sound quality. Highs are tinn...

Not worth the money

Knitwit, Target
31 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought these headphones as my 12-year-old pair I've had since middle school was falling apart and I wanted to upgrade to a decent pair of noise-canceling ones. This pair is not an upgrade. The sound quality is actually worse than my old, cheap, very basic, now-ratty ones.

Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones MDR-NC7

Sarah Larson, ReviewStream
9 March 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought these from Wal-Mart for about $50, and they are okay quality for a pair of $50 headphones. First off - the sound is decent IF you turn the noise canceling feature ON. Otherwise, they sound like a pair of $10 headphones. They do fold up nice …

Disappointing quality

James H., Newegg
26 December 2011
  • Summary: If I were to say anything about this sony product, I would have to say it's the FIRST sony product I've ever purchased that i asked for my money back - I would attribute any problems to poor assembly and QA given that the electronic assembly is pretty vanilla.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, fold into small package so is easily carryable.
  • Cons: Poor audio quality overall. Right ear was louder than left ear, noise cancelling on the after-christmas flight was sketchy and annoying for my daughter. She stated that they would intermittently just let the low-freq stuff through, sometimes left ear, sometimes right ear. The overall audio qualit...

Sony MDR-NC7

Craig R., Newegg
4 December 2011
  • Summary: While I earn my living in a tech profession, my wife is decidedly non-technical and very skeptical about electronic devices in general. These are just about the only electronic devices that I can think of that she has been impressed with.
  • Pros: These work very well for their intended usage. My wife had a pair of 12 hour flights in the last couple of weeks and loved these. She reports that they cut down the jet engine whine very substantially and made it much easier to listen to music. They also cut down the wear and fatigue that the con...
  • Cons: No cons. These were well built. The hinges for example exceeded my expectations, especially at this price point. It took my wife a few minutes to understand exactly how to fold and unfold them, but once she got that she was set. Looking at them I thought that maybe they would pinch or pull hair, ...
