Sony MDR-NC8

  • Excerpt: Overall, good headphones. I purchased these to replace a broken set. $50 seems to be a good entry range for noise canceling headphones. One could spend much more and have a crisper sound and less background (outside) noise. But, for the every day user and for around the yard I would recommend these.

  • Excerpt: Pros: Comfortable Cons: Basically unnoticeable noise cancelling and bad quality. I received these headphones as a gift and upon looking them up and seeing the $50 price tag I got very excited. When I tried them on the first thing I wanted to do was try out he noise cancelling.

  • Excerpt: I received these as a gift and thought they would be great to use at college, in the library and around people who would talk so I would not be distracted. These can actually enhance noise.

Not very impressed

  • Excerpt: Not impressed with its noise reduction. When I turn it on I can hear a faint hiss. Plus I don't detect much difference in noise reduction. Actually the headphones themselves do more to limit outside noise? Quality of sound is just OK. I actually think treble is weak at highest end. Muddy bass.
