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...

Good for the price

 

Not as good as the Bose, but much more compact for traveling. Definitely reduced the noise on a plane and made the trip more pleasant. No 3 modes, none mentioned in the documentation. A good choice if you don\'t want to pay $180 for the next better...

They seem to work!

 

At first, I was not sure that they would be as good as the Bose noice cancelling. They are not but are easy to travel with and more compact

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....

Consumer review by:

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...

Consumer review by:

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.

comfortable and good design

Could have more bass

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...
