Great value and do the job,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony MDRNC7B Noise Cancelling Headphones (Electronics)
Let's be realistic these are £35 / $50 phones so they won't be as good as the top range products. And they are pitched firmly at the in flight market - it says so on the box. So they are not ideal for noise from air conditioning, road traffic etc. But in the acid test - at the back of a BA Boeing 777 when users of the standard BA headset had abandoned any hope of hearing a movie or listening to a MP3 player - they did the job. Engine noise was reduced to the point where the very reasonable ear phone performance could deliver a clear range of sound without the need for the volume to be excessive. The ear fit is good and there is none of the slight high pitched electronic noise reported by some reviewers of alternative systems. So if you take the view that you want to use these for making a flight tolerable, and you are not judging them against your home hi fi, these are excellent value for money and highly recommended. So much so that I have just purchased a second pair!
