I\'m buying another pair

 

I\'m buying another pair. My wife took over the first pair. They do the trick almost anywhere. The crying baby does\'t get cancelled out but my NASCAR plugs do the tick.

Works as advertised

 

Also looking at the more expensive Sony units but just can justify the cost right now. We'll see how things are the next time I'm in the market for a new set of Noise Canceling headphones.

Got these to replace an ailing set of MDR-NC33/BM bought 2 yrs ago. These work as well and allow me to listen to media and hear every nuance while commuting. I sit in the back of the bus over top of the motor so there is a lot of ambient noise

There is no 'monitor' button as on the MDR-NC33/BM. I have to temporarily turn off the unit to hear announcements and such. This can become annoying at times

Great for travel

 

Better at blocking out airplane noise than the previous model I own.

Comfortable

End Flight Fatigue!

 

Nothing wears you out faster on a flight than noise! These earbuds filter out the hum or engine noise in the cabin that drives me nuts! I keep them on and in my ears even if I don't have them plugged into anything! Arrive more relaxed without lugging...

Good product

 

I got these as a gift. Used them on the airplane and it did filter out some of the plane's drone. Unfortunately, it didn't do much for the crying baby behind me, but the instructions say they won't work on high pitched noise. THese are the first...

easy to use - good sound

Decent noise canceling that doesn't excel at music

 

I got these so I wouldn't have to bring my big "can" headphones on a long international flight. These headphones seem to have a good balance of price and features. The buds certainly do reduce the sound but don't eliminate them. However, on a long...

compact size

sounds is muddled and noise canceling is just okay

Not Worth the Price

 

Bought a pair of these to use on airplain flights. They were only slightly better than the ear buds that came with my Ipod. The noise canceling swithch did not seem to make any difference when it was on or off. I would not recommend these. They just...

Nothing

Uncomfortable fit, poor noise canceling, short cord, average sound quality

These do nothing

 

These are supposed to be noise cancelling headphones, but they do nothing.This product has... Too much ambient noiseAbout me... Frequent traveler

Okay but no volume control

 

This was on sale so I bought them to replace my philips N/C earbuds that I've worn out. Overall it's more comfortable and does reduce background noise but didn't realize there was no volume control which comes in handy when travelling on a plane. On...
