Noise-cancelling headphones - Denon AHNC800, Sennheiser PXC310BT & Sony MDR-NC33

 

Aimed at frequent travellers and those working in environments that suffer from a constant din, noise-cancelling headphones can bring some much-needed peace to your musical listening - but until recently, they've have been relatively high-end and ...

Which pair of headphones is for you will depend on your preferences - though it should be obvious that the Sennheisers impressed us most. Relatively compact and with a thoroughly effective noise-cancelling feature, these are what to go for if you're...

They deliver what's expected !

 

I bought them 3 years ago, mainly to be able to work in noisy office spaces or to be able to listen to music on the train or on the plane. I needed something that I can always have with me. Over 3 years, I have probably changed the batteries once a...

Hi quality on built, noise cancellation and sound. well finished product. Really light to carry around.

The bass are not very powerful, but I still think the sound is quite balanced. Pricy.

Won't fly without them

 

After spending several years using bud-earphones in an attempt to minimise aircraft cabin-noise, I tried a set of Panasonic Noise-cancelling Hadphones. These were bulky and ineffective. I purchased the Sony MDR-NC33 earphones before leaving on a trip....

Effective, reliable and relatively discreet. Good instructions.

A little pricey for bud ear-phones

Sony MDR-NC33

 

These in-ear phones give good clear mid and high tones. The bass is, if anything a bit muddy, but then this causes less ear damage. As to the sound cancellation; I have only tried this at home, but Sony's claim of 90% reduction is greatly overstated....

Good, Solid, Ear Bud headphones

 

I love these ear buds. The battery lasts quite a while, apparently 100 hours, and that sounds about right. The noise cancelling is excellent for any constant sound, like a bus, or plane.. works fantastic for drowning out constant background sound. As...

Ok -- limited ability on noise reduction

 

These are comfortable and portable. If on sale, they are decent and have some noise cancellation ability. But do not expect too much. Overall, they are good value.

Consumer review by: Lenny (bestbuy.ca)

Great product

 

These headphones work great. The noise cancelling does take away all background noise (air conditioning in a building, most buses and metro noise, and other constant sounds) which lets me hear podcasts and music much more clearer without the need to...
