Sony MDR-10RNC

 

The Sony MDR-10RNC noise-cancelling headphones eliminate much of the ambient noise around you, but their audio performance isn't quite on par with the competition.

Quality active noise cancellation. Can output audio in passive mode. Includes two detachable audio cables including one with inline remote and mic. Very comfortable

Audio needs more presence in high-mids and highs. No auto power-off feature. Runs on AAA battery rather than rechargeable option

The only issue we really had with the Sony MDR1-RNC, the noise-cancelling headphones we reviewed earlier in 2013, was the extremely high price. Comparable-quality headphones had far lower prices, but the MDR1-RNC was a winner in every other regard....

Sony MDR-10RNC Noise Canceling Headphones Review

 

Sony's MDR-10RNC headphones are comfy and cancel ambient noise well, but they don't sound quite as good as they should for the price.

Comfortable and attractive design; Effective noise cancellation with optional tailoring; Audio still plays without power; Good battery life

Uneven mids can be fatiguing with extended listening; Bass is a bit muddy; Inline mic/controller lacks volume controls

Sony's MDR-10RNC headphones are comfy and cancel ambient noise well, but they don't sound quite as good as they should for the price.

Sony MDR-10RNC headphones Review

 

This is clearly a case of an impressive beginning, and then things not carrying forward from there. We always clarify that any reviews related to sound are extremely subjective, and in the case of the MDR-10RNC, there are some positives and equally...

Snug and comfortable fit, Noise cancelation analysis, Replacement cable in box, Bass isn't overpowering

Sony MDR-10RNC

 

The Sony MDR-10RNC noise-cancelling headphones eliminate much of the ambient noise around you, but their audio performance isn't quite on par with the competition.

In powered mode, tracks with serious sub-bass content like the Knife’s “Silent Shout” get a healthy amount of low frequency presence from the MDR-10RNC at top volume levels and without distortion. In passive mode, with the noise cancellation circuitry...

Best Headphones I've Ever Owned

 

Excellent sound and noise cancelling. One thing that I was looking for was a detachable stereo cable so that I could use it just for noise cancelling. Also, I wanted ones that I could use regular batteries. Finish quality is top notch on headphones and...

Bluetooth reception no longer as good

 

I was happy with the headset for the first two months and maybe because I only used it then for conference calls and the likes. But this month, I signed up for pandora and then realized that the headset would only work in certain directions. Even with...

Pros: great sound quality, very comfortable, noise canceling works really well with lower fz noises. Cons: slight hiss when NC is on, voices and other fz altering noises still get through. This is an over all great headphone. Sound Quality: The sound...

Very pleased

 

I've been very pleased with these headphones over the past year. They're durable and work well to cancel out noise. I used them on a recent plane ride and they worked perfectly - no noise, even from the crying baby a few rows back.
