3.0 out of 5 stars noise cancelling headphones, 23 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony MDRNC7B Noise Cancelling Headphones (Electronics)
Made the mistake and tested the bose set of noise cancelling headphones (£300)
These were absolute excellence but the price tag was far too much to fork out for.
After reading reviews and really to be honest didnt want to pay any more than £40 - £50
bought the sony set.First impressions are that they are very well built and flexible,a nice felt bag to keep them in and the battery compartment is very easy to change batteries.Having read alot of reviews about these headphones and read that the battery was impossible to remove.These people must have white finger or boxing gloves for hands.Any way I bought these mainly for out walking with my Ipod.The noise cancelling , in my opinion ,only works because the muffs on the headphones act like earmuffs.When you turn the switch on it amplifies the music.Dont get me wrong the quality that comes out the headphones is of a good quality if not a bit quiet for my choice.I was on the train and walking about the city streets and they kept out any unwanted noise and they are pretty comfortable.Value for money i think is pretty good but there is still the problem everyone has of the top strap not being padded but this is only a small glitch.

Agree with all the above, including the BOSE and their price.

These work well for cancelling out engine drones. But as the reviewer above said, the electronics won't cancel out non-engine noises that you hear on the subway, or walking about in the street. The earmuffs may provide some physical noise-isolation but that's it. The same can be said about Bose headphones, so this is not a negative comment.

"The same can be said about Bose headphones, so this is not a negative comment." Sorry but that is piffle!
