Overall, these headphones are moderately successful in reducing noise in airports, on planes, trains, and buses. But much of the reduction comes from the snug fit of the headphones over my ear. Turning on the noise-canceling switch leads to a further...

Sony DR-E10IPH In-Ear-Kopfhörer silber

I bought a set of Sony ear buds and they died after 6 months. I tried to get them replaced but it was too hard so I bought another pair. They just died, after about 6 months. I'm not using my old 20 year old Sony hard ear buds. Zero stars

Sony - General Noise Cancelling Headphones

My wife and I take our Sony Noise Canceling headphones whenever we go on vacation. With an iPod and splitter, we connect with each other as we listen to our favorite tunes. While avoiding the roar of jet engines or loud people at the pool of our...

Sony EX (Pink)

The Sony MDR-EX36V Stereo Headphones are a good budget-friendly option for anyone who wants to upgrade from the earbuds that come packaged with MP3 players.

Sony MDR-E9A

The earphones are bad in every aspect. Poor sound quality. No bass/drum effects. Got damaged within five months of purchase. Not at all reliable. Even my friend's earphones got damaged within first four months of purchase. Though I had the option of...

Sony Electronics MDR-Q23 3.5mm Clip-On Audio Headphones - Blue

Same clip feel and general design as the MDR-Q22LP. The blue, removable clip-on cover is similar, if a little smaller. The spring on the clip is a little smoother.

Sony EPEX1 Ear Cushion

"I like the way they fit and how there is different sizes, but they can easily be nocked off or snagged and pulled off the headphones. I am going to try a drip of Krazy glue this time to make sure they don't fall off."

Sony MDR-A 110 LP

The reviews and specifications for these headphones looked good, but I was disappointed with the product. If I were in the return for credit time period, I would be sending them back. They were better than the dirt-cheap headphones that came with my...

Sony MDR-E 888

I have bought the 888 two years ago. Clearly, they sound really good for buds. When I got them, I was using EX70s and I felt the 888 were a LOT flatter sounding. Overall, the tone is good, the presence is JUICY, bass had good impact and mids are...

Sony MDR-XB920

A well-heeled bass-head's dream, that's what the MDR XB920 is. It's a well-designed set that pumps out ridiculous amounts of bass at a hefty price tag. It's not a set that will appeal to everyone, but for those who want what it offers, the set is...

Sony MDR-EX52

These are great headphones, I use them in the gym with my mp3 player. They're comfortable, sound great, and seem hard wearing. The sound quality's pretty much the same as the slightly older EX71. Highly recommended for gym or commuting.

Sony MDR-AS30G Active Style

The Sony MDR-AS30G Active Headphones are a solid option for outdoor exercisers who don't demand superior audio quality during workouts.

The sound on these is great, although I haven't tested them for isolating, or on public transport.

Sony MDR-7510

Got mine from an amazon seller in the UK - I don't know if mine were "iffy" (the build quality did seem suspect) but they were rubbish, with a flat and poor quality sound. I thought they'd be an upgrade on the cheaper (and vastly superior) V6/7506.

I bought 2 pairs at $40 each from ... Circuit City and now I can't take them back. I am not exaggerating when I say I will probably just throw them away. Very suprised that Sony put their name on this product ... and these are their "high performance"...

Sony Children's (Black)

With their pint-sized design, volume limiting feature, and itty-bitty price tag, the Sony MDR-222KD headphones are a great choice for children who aren't too concerned with audio quality.

I found mine on the discontinued table at Walmart. I wrote a review at the other one with the dash, if you care to read. It's a puzzle!

Sony NWZ-W262 Water Resistant Flash MP3 Player (2GB) - White

Great for running outdoors. It is waterproof in the rain. Convenient, no cords, no hassle. Pretty easy to upload music and easy to figure out.

Sony MDR-V6 or MDR-7506

This hugely popular phone has been around for decades, and for a reason: it offers a pleasing sound with comfort and nominal portability - and comfort. At higher volumes, there can be a certain hardness to the sound at around the 3k level. Since this...

SONY DR-BT150NC-B Black | In-Ear Bluetooth Wireless Noise Canceling...

Sony Compact & Slim Noise Cancelling Headphones

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. I was very confused when I heard sirens and it an...

Sony XBA65 Premium Quality In-Ear Headphones - Black

Light, durable does what it says on the tin, ok some runner's could argue that there's no remote control (who genuinely cares). The only drawback (if you can call it that) is the music that hasn't been downloaded directly from iTunes doesn't sound as...
