Product Description

Colour Name: Black

Product Description

Noise cancelling headphones sample ambient (surrounding) noise through a microphone built into the headphone unit and use signal processing to cancel ambient noise. Digital noise cancelling goes one step further by analyzing the ambient noise in detail and filtering it out. Avoid using headphones with the volume turned up for an extended period of time. Doing so can damage your hearing. It is advisable to keep the volume at a moderate level at all times. For your own safety, please do not use when driving or cycling.

As a big fan of my previous noise cancelling Sony headphones, which although worked well, had a "dangly box" for the noise cancelling circuitry, I was keen to get a pair of these when I picked up my Xperia Z3C Tablet. These are of similar design to the older ones, but the noise cancelling circuitry is included in the tablet, so no "dangly box" anymore!

Performance wise, I think they are slightly better than before, but it's hard to know if that's because of the circuitry in my tablet, or the headphones themselves, all I can say, as a package, the Z3C Tablet and these perform slightly better than the standalone headphones I mentioned in both audio performance and noise cancelling**

Construction wise, they are good, it doesn't feel like the wires are going to break, and the L and R labelling is clear (a failing of a surprisingly large number of products).

I have marked it down a star, as due to the wiring for the mics, it means these can't be used as regular headphones in non Xperia products. It's a shame they couldn't design it to work passively and actively.

Overall however, I am very pleased, and they are an essential part of my travelling kit.

===Limitations of ALL active noise cancelling tech===

** A note about all noise cancelling technology and consumer understanding of the technology and what the technology CAN and CAN'T cancel out.

First of all, just to be clear: I bought these having recently upgraded to the Xperia z3. if you don't have a sony handset that features the noise cancelling function, there are better, regular (non noise cancelling) headphones available elsewhere at this price range, and I'd advise you to look there.

If you do have a sony handset, with the noise cancelling function, your probably reading this review and wondering if upgrading to them is really worth it.

First of all, the noise cancelling works fine. I think the negative reviews on here are symptoms of unrealistic expectations in this area. Yes, there are other, better performing noise cancelling headphones out there, but they cost alot more than the £30 you'll spend on these-they also take batteries, are more bulky, and can be uncuncomfortable. You won't get these problems with these.

The best thing about the headphones is how much of an improvement they make to the sound vs the standard headphones supplied with the phone. For a device capable of handling hi res audio, I was disappointed with the sound from the regular headphones, but with these I get close to what I was expecting (even if they aren't hi res certified). It's clear these have been designed and engineered to optimise performance on compatible Xperia handsets. In short, you WILL notice the difference straight away.

The jump in overall sound quality i would estimate to be around 40%. If your into your music on the go, and have an Xperia handset with the noise cancelling function-these are a must have.

A Sony Z3 costs about £450. It's a significant investment, but bought it because it supports noise cancelling. The reason for this is because I work as a writer in a noisy office and I wanted to be able to shut out background noise without having to play music to do so
I've had far worse noise cancelling headphones before, which cost a lot more. They were Pioneer SE-NC31C and I used them for about a day.
So, yes, I'll happily admit that these were a whole lot better for a third of the price.
But they still don't live up to the advertising claims. They reduce noise, but no more than most noise 'isolating' headphones. They sound good, but no better than a similarly priced set of Sennheisers.
And this is the trouble. When I spend £450 on a phone, I want to listen to what it can actually DO. I want to be able to save up and buy a pair of really GOOD earphones that cost more than a hundred quid. I want the choice to say, 'yes, these are okay, but I'd like to have something better.'
With all the technology and design that Sony spent on the Xperia Z3, they forgot one important fact:
Earphones that cost less than a round of drinks will only ever be okay.

This item is highly recommended for travelling on tubes for those of us who live in the capital city, London. If it could be this superb on tube trains then surface trains will be an easy one. I was amazed the way this earphones subdued the noise that prevents you from listening to your songs perfectly when travelling on tube. I could hear every detail of my song, even those that I've had problem with because they are worship songs and low in volumes. I could hear all a dem. Now I know what to do, I will use this on the tube and use my normal Phillips earphones on the buses and when walking because this Noise cancelling one blocks out every noise you won't even hear what people around you are saying until you take it off. You would not even hear the sound of a car coming behind you, which is quite dangerous. Sound is beautiful. It does the job, it cancels noise, good for people who listen to music in noisy places
