Sony MDR-NC7 [Review]


Good for certain genres of music

Weak bass, poor sound quality with noise canceling switched off, causes discomfort when listening for extended periods of time, expensive

Great performance, exceptional value


Right when I opened the packaging these headphones had already made a good impression: I didn't have to go to the hospital from trying to open it.

Great bass, nice clarity, no audible distortion

Flimsy cord

II received these headphones brand new for Christmas and was very excited. They look very nice and their sound quality was excellent, I felt they were better than my Father's $500 Bose headphones. After a month I periodically heard small periods of...

Worst Headphones Ever


Sony really cut corners on these. The part that goes over the head hurts the skull and pulls out your hair. The ear pieces are flat and don???t cup the ear. Whose bright idea was that? Headphones are supposed to cup the ear hence the word headphones....

Sony MDR-NC60 - Amazing headphones


I ordered these headphones through a retailer for a price of 130$. It was one of my best purchases ever. I'd first like to say that humming sounds mentioned in other reviews comes from not wearing the headphones correctly. The Sony instructions booklet...

Detachable cord, around-the-ear headphones, adjustable, replacable battery, decent noise cancelling, stylish, good sound

Consumer review by: Walkera994 (

Decent headphone, but not good


These are decent headphones, I haven't had any real problems though. The "noise cancelling" barely reduces noise, but increases sound quality. The base isn't the best either, but if you have an mp3 player with a built in EQ then you can mess with it to...
