Sony MDR-NC60 High Quality Noise Cancelling Headphones, Expensive for what they are.

Noise Cancelling Headphones
1

Sony mdr-nc60 noise cancelling headphones. I bought two of these for use on long haul flights as well as household use. They attenuate noise very well even without noise cancelling switched on. They are comfortable to wear for long periods (like 8+ hours) and the batteries (duracell aaa) seem to last between 15 and 20 hours, depending on how much use you make of noise cancelling and your mp3 player. The zipped soft case that they live in has a pocket which can take a couple of spare aaa batteries, and a small ‘sansa’ mp3 player. The headphone lead lives coiled in the main part of the case and like most such things needs to be treated with a little respect to avoid damage. The headphone lead connectors and adaptors have fitted all the aircraft seat jack plugs that i`ve come across so far. (there are 3 main types of jack plugs)i bought these in november 2011. It`s now march 2013, i`m still pleased with them and they`re still in one piece.

The noise cancelling ruins it all. Having looked for a new headset with some good sound quallity i stumbled upon these seeing how it had excellent reviews and what not. I got the headset and thought the sound quallity was good, i’m a basshead so i was a little disappointed that the item lacked any real kick. So i tried to walk outside with them and found that the sound stops for a split second for every step i take, another problem i found was that the noise cancelling spassed out when i was in the train and the engines started. I would only recommend these for people who is gonna use them indoors, since i found that there is to many problems otherwise.

I had been looking for some good mid-range headphones for a while and had originally settled on the bose around-ear. However, having heard that they could be temperamental, i decided to look else where. Then i found these sonys – they looked great, were cheaper than the bose pair, were noise cancelling and had recieved lots of good reviews – which they deserve. Songs sound beautifully fresh and crisp, they look gorgeous, the noise cancelling is great, they’re comfortable, come with a nice carrying case. Honestly, i could not have expected more.

Very good headphones – recommended. . I was looking for a pair of on or over ear noise cancelling headphones to listen to itunes via pc and my iphone mainly in the house. The idea being to cut down on the amount of sound intruding from others watching television, washing machine, central heating etc. , but also to reduce the sound leak from my sennheiser px100 mk1’s. I should also perhaps point out that i paid less than £80 for these, nor was i keen to pay much more than £100 on any headphones. Firstly sound quality: compared to my sennheiser px100 and cx300 (both mk1) i have to say that i was very pleased. The high frequencies are more extended without being fatiguing. The mid range is very good indeed, but perhaps not as open or airy as the px100 (this was not a surprise given the 100’s are open backed and not noise cancelling) though the effect is very slight. The lower frequencies are both extended and well controlled, i was deeply impressed with the bass performance. Overall these are the best sounding headphones that i have owned.

Sony MDR-NC60 High Quality Noise Cancelling Headphones : I love it when i buy something that is quality and works as i had hoped. I read many complaints against this set of headphones which nearly put me off. Fortunately i had tried them on in a working environment and compared them against cheaper ones, and also against the bose too. They have changed my train journeys and telephone conference calls and made my life good. The battery that came with it didn’t last more than a few days. But a brand new battery in and now 3 weeks later it’s still going. I use these headphones for several hours a day both on the train and at work. They are probably not the most amazing sound quality to the audiophile but i think they are very very good. Great clear sound with good bass response. Also they come in a very nice supportive case and the cord completely unplugs so you don’t risk damage. I have had them for about 6 weeks at the time of writing and they are still perfect.

It does the job, but thats it. It does the job, but thats it. Low volume, but even so you will definetelly experience some noise and distortion at higher volumes. Forget about use it with an headphone amp.

Excellent bluetooth ‘phones – recommended. These are the best-value noise reduction bluetooth headphones you can get. Work well on the plane, bus and train.

Great headphones and still going strong. They have cut out all the noise on my commute to town and allow me to escape.

Cuts the dull backround noises. Very clear sound quality through headphones. Guess which one of us had headache after 11 hour flight?. Though that could have been the gin.

Big, sweaty, creaky, but good. Good sound quality as expected. But the headphones are too big, and not very comfortable. However, they constantly creak, and the noise cancellation is useless when walking, because it can’t handle the slight vibrations of walking, weirdly.

Bought as a gift – very much appreciated. The zip up case is handy for storage and the earpieces twist to lie flat in this. Very comfy on the ear (even large ears) and easily adjusted to fit on different head sizes. The sound quality is impressive and the noise cancelling function an added bonus.

I purchased these for my wife as she didn’t feel she merited the bose noise cancelling headphones i use on regular flights. First impression was of quality build and a nice case for storage. However, the noise cancelling was not anywhere near as good as the bose (used the microwave to supply the “jet”noise). It was then that i noticed clear tape covering the noise sampling microphones. Once this was removed the noise cancelling was immediately improved. Not quite as good as the bose (thankfully) but, at half the price why would they be?. The noise cancelling to price ratio is far better for the sony product and i feel that sound reproduction was better than the bose. Our real test will be on the long flight to australia, in a couple of weeks. I will add to this revue after that.

They are comfortable and feel very well made. The noise-cancelling is among the best i’ve experienced (although don’t expect perfection of course). If i had one complaint, it’s that they seem to eat up batteries. They use one aaa battery, and from my experience so far it lasts for about 5 hours of noise cancelling music listening. They were unbranded batteries though. Will try with some energizer/duracell ones and see what happens.

After reading most of the reviews for the sony headphones, i can only totally agree with them. It’s an excellent product, good sound, well made, what yoy would expect from a sony product.

These are fantastic, they are great value for money as i would rate them as good as some top spec ear phones. The only problem being as they are my husbands, is that now he has the perfect excuse. He can’t hear the children when they are playing up. Solution to that is that i need a pair. Will be purchasing a second pair asap.

Absolutely worth every penny. . Does everything anyone wants it to do & far cheaper than the bose equivalent. You won’t go far wrong with these.

I have had these headphones now a couple of years and they have never let me down. I bought them to replace a broken pair of fantastic altec lansings which were half the price of these. The construction is very strong, far superior to my previous pair. The battery seems to last forever and is conveniently hidden, not with one of those stupid boxes which are all too common on noise cancelling headphones. They sound very good, the bass is probably not as strong as my previous set, but they produce a beautiful all rounded sound. Tracks like madonna’s ray of light make it feel like you’re on a different planet. The noise cancelling is also very good and yes it does produce a small hum, but it isn’t a problem. The advantage of these is they also sound decent, not great, when the power isn’t on as well. However, slight warning to ipod users.

I was so pleased with this product i bought a second pair for my wife. . I was so pleased with this product i bought a second pair for my wife. I have never used noise cancelling headphones before so i had nothing to compare them against. I use them for air travel and they remove about 90% of the background noise. Whilst using the airline’s own headphones i could barely hear the in flight entertainment with the volume set to maximum, with the sony headphones minimum volume was sufficient. They are well made and come in a case that can easily carry your ipod etc in. One of the best things about these is how relaxing they make long flights. They are a comfortable fit with plenty of adjustment.

These are for the practical non-purist, say someone with tinnitus. Light, easy on the ears and head, the noise canceling is adequate. Not too expensive but remember to keep a spare batterybe gentle with the connection between the phones and headband.

Excellent performance, excellent price. I have had a pair of these now for nearly 3 years and have yet to find anything that i dislike. First, they come in a very smart carry case, which has ample room for my mp3 player to be stowed inside it too. Along with a little pocket for the airline 2 pin adapter thingie, 1/4 jack adapter, and spare aaa battery. They are very comfortable to wear, with a wide range of size adjustment, and soft over-the-ear type cups. The lead can be unplugged from the left cup, allowing you to wear them as just a noise canceling headset. When i’m flying i normally leave the lead plugged into the plane seat and disconnect the headset when getting up for a leg stretch, much more convenient that way. Sound quality is as good as any other set i have tried, but i’m no audiophile. With the noise canceling (nc) off the sound is clear and good full spectrum is heard. When the nc is on, the clarity is as impressive as ever, and indeed, as you can turn down the overall volume, i find the sound as quality as good as when it is off.
