Product Specifications

Use these headphones to block out noise, listen to music, or do both at once! These Sony MDR-NC10 Earbud Headphones use the Fontopia in-the-ear-design for a snug and comfortable fit behind the ear and are ideal for travel, work environments and outdoor use. They eliminate 70% sound when noise-canceling circuit is switched on, sensing outside sound with built-in microphones and sending an equal but opposite canceling signal to the headphones. A hot line switch admits outside sounds temporarily and headphones continue to function for music listening when noise canceling is off. The headphones operate on AAA alkaline batteries, which have an extended life of approximately 60 hours. It reduces noise by 70% (10dB) making it ideal for travel - it gives you peace and quiet on planes, trains, buses and cars. It is also ideal for outdoor use when you are gardening or on a noisy street. Its noise canceling circuit actually senses outside noise with built-in microphones and sends an equal-but-opposite canceling signal to the headphones; cancels noise from 50Hz to 1, 000Hz, with a maximum of 10dB noise cancellation in the critical range from 100 to 400 Hz - where the human ear is super-sensitive. Fontopia In-The-Ear Design fits snugly, yet comfortably inside the ear; eliminates the headband so you can enjoy music while exercising, skating or dancing. Hot Line Switch admits outside sounds temporarily.
