They're ok

Santa got these for this kids this Christmas and that is about all they are good for, the kids. I do not recommend these for adults or anyone looking for really great noise cancelling. They are just, ok

  • from Stoney Creek, ON


Very disappointed in these headphones. They did not cover my ears and my ears are small! Not noise cancelling at all and that was what they were bought for. Got some cheaper headphones that performed much better.

.. just one thing

I received these as a gift, and love them. I have multiple piercings on my ears, so I was worried about discomfort from pressure, but found these to be very comfortable. I love the sound quality, and for the price tag it's a good deal. Yeah, they aren't Bose quality, but for those that need to stay on budget it's great. My *only* complaint is the feedback. When switched to noise cancelation, there is a distinct high pitched sound in the background. It's noticable, but doesn't take too much away from my enjoyment. All in all, for the cost I am quite pleased with them.

love them

bought these 2 years ago and their still going strong. I'm a little rough on headphones so I'm surprised these lasted so long. The covering around the ear pieces is starting to shred though.

  • from Ottawa, ON

NOT Noise Cancelling

Bought these and had high hopes but you can hear talking, and TV through any music you're listening too. I guess the price was too good to be true.

  • from Charlottetown, PE

Poor sound quality

You can get better quality by purchasing the cheap disposable headphones on planes. Terrible sound quality. No bass to speak of.

Excellent gift from my husband. Great value for the prize.

NC works but music quality not so....

The NC works pretty well, but the music quality actually is pretty weak. My regular headphone has much better and more crisp quality. I actually have to return it for that reason, unfortunately. Not sure if there's something that I did not do properly? There's no equalizer type functions right? Just an on/off? If so, then I would say I would've much higher expectations out of Sony's headphones.

Great budget sensitive headphones

I was looking for a set of inexpensive headphones largely to use on flights. I wanted something which was noise cancelling and comfortable. I have used these headphones for short periods to try them out and have found that they perform admirably. The audio is crisp and clear and they are quite effective at cancelling out ambient noise. I find them very comfortable to wear, but note that there is a left and right side and it makes a difference. Good headset, good buy.

They're not good.

Open at store

I bought this product on-line. At first I was impressed by the sound, however 10 minutes into listening with this headphone there was crackling in one of the speakers. After contacting Best Buy I was told they can't exchange it since it's opened. Now, as a customer I have to run around for an exchange with Sony. Suggest opening it in the store with a sales clerk there before you buy. Not impressed with the customer service from Best Buy

Sony Over-Ear Noise Cancelling Headphones

We are very happy with the headphones. Likely, we will be purchasing a second pair!

  • from Montréal, QC

Great for price for quality

The sound is great when you activate the 'Noise cancelling', cause it will boost the frequencies. Excellent for mp3 music on your smartphone. Despite the fact you have to insert a AAA battery, it is worth to buy this sony headphone model.

  • from Edmonton, Ab

Work well for me

I purchased these headphones for a business trip because of their noise cancelling properties and they worked really well. Greatly diminished the sound of crying babies as well as aircraft noises. If they came in pink I would have given them 5 stars - but that is only because I find pink headphones less likely to get lost or mislaid

  • from Waterloo, ON

Stopped working in a week

After only few days, the noise cancelling feature stopped working properly. When it's supposed to be on, it randomly shuts off, back on again, and repeats.

  • from Montréal, QC

Great for the Price

Great value. I purchased them at [price] and they were well worth it. I really like the noise cancelling feature and find it works quite well. If you're looking to purchase headphones but aren't ready to spend a couple hundred dollars, these are a good alternative. I also find them to be very comfortable.

  • from Whitby, ON

Great Value

Got them on sale for [price]. For price great value and work just fine. Haven't tried them on a plane yet will re-post in Feb.

  • from Toronto, ON


Bought them in Vancouver for flight to Toronto. Reduced cabin noise dramatically mostly in mid to lower end of spectrum. Can still hear speaker and loud talk which is necessary on a plane to hear important messages. Without power, sound is muddy and weak. With power on, sound is louder and reaches full frequency range as sound is processed through noise reduction/enhancement circuit. Cons: cable and plug look flimsy and will likely break long before the headphone does. They are not user replaceable. Battery door comes off too easily. Almost lost it twice. Good idea to duct tape it. I've tried all major NC phones. Bose is okay but only works on iPhone. Sony upper end model is just as good and works on any phone plus when on sale is much, much cheaper than Bose but it too suffers from design flaws. Overall, this phone is a solid deal if on sale. By the way, it can be used in bed with a soft pillow comfortably.

don't work as advertised

The noise cancelling capability of these headphones is poor. While they do state that the noise cancellation is only good for low frequency sounds (like background noise on a plane, or air conditioning), these headphones actually AMPLIFY NOISE from a lot of other sources - including people talking, things banging on a desk, etc.. You are better off buying a pair of headphones that insulate your ears from background noise, rather than the active cancellation used by these headphones

  • from Edmonton, AB

Not very comfortable

The thing to note here is that these are ON the ear headphones. At least they were for me and my ears arn't that big. The sound was descent, but I found them very uncomfortable. The cushions are made of rubber and my ears were sweating after a short period of wearing. I returned them.

  • from Ottawa, ON

Pretty good for the price

These headphones fit perfectly over the ear, they have a good sound. The noise cancelling is not as good as other expensive makes. I like that they work with the noice cancelling on or off. Don't like so much that they are battery operated. Overall I'm satisfied.

  • from Scarborough, ON

Very nice.

an excellent gift from my wife. staying up too late listening to music in bed without annoying her or waking her up :)

  • from Scarborough, ON

Noise Cancelling not good

I buy this product is because I want the noise-cancelling function. But the noise cancelling function is so bad, it just reduced a very little outside noise. I really want to return this product to the seller ang get my money back.
