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

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

Ear buds are 90% of the noise reduction!

 

I bought this for airline engine noise reduction. I haven't actually flown but I tried these on my home computer which has a noisy external accessory fan. The buds quieted the fan noise about 90%. The "noise reduction technology" did not seem to add...

No basis to review

 

This item was given to someone else as a gift. I have no basis to review it.

Good Earphones with Noise Cancelling

 

I use my earphones when riding the bus to and from work each day and was getting concerned that I had to turn the volume up too high to get over the ambient noise of the engine, etc. So I splashed out and bought these and am glad that I did. Sony...

Cheaper than alternatives, comfortable, reduces noise well

A microphone for phone use would be nice

Superb Sound Quality, Comfortable, Satisfactory Noise Cancelling, Sturdy Look and Feel

 

I like to listen to music whenever I exercise with my indoor rowing machine (C2). My Audio Technica and Beyerdynamic both had excellent sound but they feel bulky and uncomfortable especially when I start sweating. I've been wanting to get an in –ear...

Good sound quality. Satisfactory NC function. Good battery life. Comfortable for use. Cheaper than its counterparts even at full price.

Sound output diminishes when NC is turned on but SQ does not deteriorate. Cable tangles easily.
