The best that Ive had.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony MDR1RNC Noise Cancelling Prestige Headphones - Black (Electronics)
Where do I start with these headphones? I've had many headphones over the years and I have to admit that these are best that Ive had. These were bought to replace a pair of Bose QC15 and until then I thought that nothing could touch them. Once you handle these, you'll instantly see that the build quality is pretty substantial. However that build quality does come at a price, and that is the weight. I would say that they are probably twice the weight of the Bose's, but with the soft leather foam and sponge ear pieces, I can listen to these all day and not suffer from fatigue. As to the sound quality, they pee over the Bose's with the noise cancelling off, but certain sounds are bizarre with it on. e.g., If people are talking behind you, they sound like robots with the NC on. Other bonuses compared to the Bose's are that they still work when the battery runs down; the battery is rechargeable via micro USB cable; two cables are supplied, one for standard mp3's players and one with a mic/ remote controller for iPhones. they may be steep in cost, but when compared to other high end headphones, they not that bad.
