Terrible Quality, even worse customer service

Nadezhda K., Newegg
17 April 2014
  • Summary: Sony does not understand customer service. Only buy these headphones if you are comfortable throwing away your money.
  • Pros: - Fit comfortably
  • Cons: My advise to everyone I know after my recent experience with Sony: DO NOT BUY SONY PRODUCTS, SONY DOES NOT STAND BY THEIR PRODUCTS OR THEIR CUSTOMERS. I recently bought Sony MDR-NC7 Noise-Cancelling Headphones. The plug on these headphones fell apart within weeks: the joint where the wire goes in...

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 all too great

Anonymous, Newegg
11 November 2012
  • Summary: If you can get these for $20, and are completely cheap, go for it; they're probably the best you can get for that little. If you feel like shelling out a little more for headphones that will last substantially longer, I'd point to Koss' Portapro.
  • Pros: Good sound quality for the price. Then again, in the $20-50 range, that's nothing to brag about. Has limited noise cancellation - also uncommon on anything this cheap.
  • Cons: That said, the sound isn't particularly good. The bass response is underwhelming (not flat, but actually -lacking-), and is non-existant with the noise cancellation off. Treble distortion is ridiculous. While they do have noise cancellation, it's of limited use. It blocks the noise of my notebook...

another terrible set of Sony headphones

Derrick C., Newegg
11 November 2012
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: I operate heavy equipment in my job and I appreciate a good set of headphones. These are not it. I first owned the Philips O'neil (The Stretch) headphones, which were amazing, but they were stolen. I bought these as a replacement and was very disappointed. My last few pairs of Sony headphones had...

so-so

Lucian I., Newegg

  • Pros: The price was right, luckly it wasn't 80$. These headphones are worth 15$ + 9.99$ shipping, or 25$ free shipping ;-)
  • Cons: The sound is so dull, and noise cancelling is about 50%, but it doesnt matter because the sound is low and dull with or without the noise cancellation. I still dont get it why Sony has put this headphone out on the market in the first place.

  • Summary: get something better for the price, unless you can find these under $25
  • Pros: good price, however i paid $50 for these, whereas I've seen them in the store for $20
  • Cons: uncomfortable: feel very heavy on the ears, become uncomfortable within half an hour of wearing noice cancelling is not as much cancelling as it is ampilfying the music a little bit

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, ...
