There is a bewildering array of noise cancelling units out there, ranging from cheap and cheerful to high end and very expensive sets. I will make it clear that although I am no audiophile, I know what I like from headphones, and that tends to be clean treble, a fairly rounded mid-range and a bass that is not too powerful. Having experience of the passive Sony in-ear headphones for a year, these provided what I liked, so therefore I have chosen to stick with Sony. On to the review.
Fairly standard blister packaging from Sony (and others) which is nothing special. The unit comes with a battery, spare ear buds, instructions and a small black pouch for storage.
Comfort and Fit
As with my previous MDR-EX30's, these headphones need to be pushed quite deep into your ear canals to get a decent seal to block out noise. If you don't seat these properly, they won't work properly. One observation that I make, is that the shape of the ear buds are different to my existing passive ones, which is no surprise, but I did not find these as comfortable to wear for a prolonged period. My commute to work is over 6 hours, and the first couple of trips I found I had to stop using them after 4-5 hours, as they left my ear canals feeling quite sore and painful.Read more ›
Sound is reasonable for this price.
But, the noise cancelling is zero - yes nothing at all. Have a new battery and the nice red light comes on so it should cancel something.
Can't be bothered to send it back so I'm using it as a backup set of earphones, although you have to lug the small (AAA size) battery compartment around.
Ear phones fit the ear very well and the quality of the sound is very good at all frequencies.

To my ear, these headphones don't cancel any noise at all. The battery case dangles off the cord weighting one side of your head down and repeatedly pulling out your ear bud -... Read morePublished on 9 July 2013 by Mrs. J. L. Dearlove
