Sony MDR NC7 review: Sony MDR NC7

 

Sony MDR NC7

The Sony MDR-NC7 Noise Canceling headphones are very affordable and the earpads are soft. Package includes an airline adapter and a travel pouch, and the headphones are nice-looking.

The headband of the Sony MDR-NC7 Noise Canceling headphones tends to chafe, and bass is lacking. Noise canceling isn't the most effective we've heard.

The Sony MDR-NC7 Noise Canceling headphones are an OK option for travel fiends operating on a strict budget.

Relatively comfortable, even over time ; Airplane adapter are included

Noise canceling feature doesn’t work ; Bad sound quality

We strongly recommend that you avoid buying these headphones.

Noise cancellation headphones should be cheaper, and this Sony model is setting an example, though there are drawbacks.

Sony MDR NC7 review

 

Noise canceling headphones can cost a pretty penny, which is why we always perk up when a company brings a budget-friendly option into the fray. Such is the case with the Sony MDR-NC7 Noise Canceling headphones, a $40 pair with stylish looks and handy...

Sony MDR-NC7 [Review]

 

Good for certain genres of music

Foldable design, good mids and highs, good noise isolation

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