    Didn't meet my needs

    It didn't cut out nearly enough noise (loud music at the gym), which was my reason for buying. I returned it. Otherwise it seemed ok. It was reasonably comfortable and only needed a AAA battery for the noise-cancellation function, but I still had to turn up the volume too high on my podcasts to hear them over the loud music. I'm back to using a true sound-blocking headset (like you might use when running heavy machinery). I put in my earbuds and then the sound-blocking headset goes over them. Not as comfortable but better for my hearing.

    Great noise cancelling headphones for the price

    Needed a comfortable set of headphones for a gig I was playing. Ended up having to sit near an air conditioning unit. Didn't really want to pay a ton of money for a set of noise cancelling headphones - since I was taking them someplace where they might end up "walking". These were about $50 - $60 and worked great for what I needed. Still hear voices but hums from A/C unit at the gig and server room at work are non-existent when I use these headphones. Would definitely recommend to someone looking for something to cut down background noise and not break the bank.

    These are noise canceling headphones that are advertised to efficiently block low frequency sounds like an airplane jet engine or an air conditioner... but let me tell you - they are excellent at blocking high frequency sounds as well. I couldn't hear anyone's voice and it was great. I'm sure there are better noise canceling headphones out there, but these are a good starting point if you aren't willing to blow $150+ They have a great design and fold up for storage. I'm very happy with these.

    Awesome headphones

    Great sound, feel, and fit. I can't say really anything bad to say about the headphones. In fact only reason I put 4 stars only has to do more with what came with the headphones. Out of the box this set comes with 3 cables, a charging cable and a aux cable, both are the type of quality you might find at a local dollar store. I quickly got rid of both. Then there is the carrying "pouch" which will protect your investment from dirt, nothing else, it is made of cloth, a firm case made of plastic would even have been better.

    Reasonable if not great headphones for the price

    Noise cancelling is good, sound quality is great as expected for a Sony product. For the price compared to other headphones, these will do the job. Note that the build quality is not super--they are made out of plastic, but adequate. Just don't expect to be very rough with these headphones while jogging or running or going to the gym. Overall, the product does what it does and is good value for the price. Higher priced headphones may offer superior noise cancelling and sound, but these Sony ones are adequate.

    Sony MDRZX110NC/B

    These had great bass at the expense of the highs and mids. If you are someone who listens to Hip Hop, maybe these might work for you, but these are terrible and so are all of the XB (Xtra Bass) Sony headphones such as XB550, XB650 and XB950, all of which I tried and heard the same dead sound with very little highs or mids. I ended up buying the Sony WH-1000XM2 and they sound great but they have an issue with the headband cracking. Not sure what happened to SONY, but their designers are no longer cutting edge.

    got these for my dad bc he moved into my house and doesnt understand that when people are sleeping at 2am and have to get up for work, that he shouldnt have the tv volume all the way up so you can hear it from outside the dang house. got tired of yelling at him so got him these to wear at night. worked great, only downside is apparently when theyre plugging into the tv, you cannot just turn them off and have the volume come through the tv speakers, you have to get up and unplug them from the tv each time.

    Remarkable Good Noise Canceling

    Honestly, I needed a cheap regular pair of headphones quickly for a work thing. I didn't even realize they were noise canceling until I got on the airplane. I was REALLY surprised when I turned them on. Not only did they sound good with surprising bass response but the noise canceling was almost as good as MUCH more expensive Bose products I've tried. The only downside is a somewhat short and thin cord to connect to a player. I would have preferred a beefy cord that didn't feel so thin.

    The quality of the sound is very good and it does a very good job of cancelling extraneous noises. They didn't have a sample of this one to try on at the store. I didn't think it would be as heavy as it is and the plastic band is not very comfortable. The band set at the smallest size is a little big for my head. I solved the size and comfort issues by wrapping a strip of soft, black material around the band. Overall for the price I'm happy with it.

    Good Alternative to Bose

    There are not a lot of noise cancelling headphones available on the market. Bose is the leader but their headphones can be pretty pricey. These are a nice alternative at 1/4th the cost. The noise reduction is powered by a AAA battery that goes into the right head phone. The reduction can be turned on or off with a manual toggle. When turned off the headphones work as standard headphones, conserving battery life. I use these headphones because the neighbor likes to play their music very loud and it helps out quite a bit.

    Barely cancel noise and make your ears hurt

    Posted
    Richhom13

    Bought these headphones to study. It feels like they only kick up the bass and make the sound louder and clearer but don't really cancel that much noise. The best they cancel out would be light tapping or whispering. They only partially cover your ears so your ears hurt after 20 min of wearing them. The batteries also don't last that long. About 10 hours like the other review said sounds accurate. For the price, I would just recommend getting a pair of nice headphones and not these for the sake of them being "noise canceling".

    Good noise cancelation head phones for the price

    For the price I had very low expectations, I was actually prepared to return these before even walking out of the store. When compared to other noise canceling headphones that averaged $200, how could these work, right? Well, I used these on a flight and they worked great. Of course, there wasn't total silence when switched on but there was a noticeable difference. Enough to allow me to arrive at my destination refreshed and not feeling drained from listening to the aircraft sounds the entire time. Worth it - try them and you'll believe you're ears.

    Headset Used for Transcription

    I am more than happy with this headset. My old one had to be replaced because the ear buds ripped off the casing when my dog tried to jump on my lap. The old pair was a USB connection. This one is an audio jack connection and the associate who helped me when I was shopping said this connection will require less usage of the computer. The jack is also located on the opposite side of the laptop, so won't get tugged out of my ears when Ms. Puppy wants to jump on my lap! Additionally, they are very comfortable to wear as well as being noise reduction. My old ones weren't either.

    I love my new Sony headphones! They have a great sound, very clear and stereo sound which I love. Perfect for my music videos and movies. I feel they do cancel an adequate amount of noise, although I don't think its possible to cancel all the noise, overall, I am very happy with my purchase. Also, I wanted to say that I love shopping at Best Buy! They have excellent quality of electronics that you can trust, great customer service, great prices, and every time I shop at Best Buy, I have a great shopping experience. :)

    I break things and I travel a lot. I didn't want another 3-400 pair or headphones to break. Nor did I want noise canceling that works so well that I miss important things like snacks and drinks. These fit the bill exactly. First flight was a complete success. They aint the best but I can listen at moderate volume on planes and in the gym with clarity and w MOST noise cancelled out. Perfect for the every-man!

    Mostly as an alternative to in the ear phones, I decided to try these units out on a recent trip to Japan and they work on mutual levels. Firstly, comfort-over the ear with nice cushions, not restrively tight squeezing on the head which adds to the comfort. Although the cabin entertainment is not a great example for audio spectrum I enjoyed good examples from movies to audio tracks. The other reason purchasing these were portability meaning they fold up well. For me the noise suppression was an added value Buy these, they're a great value

    Decent sound but...

    These headphones have decent sound but the dynamic range is much better when you turn on the noise canceling function. Remember to turn it off, though, when done because it eats through AAA batteries. The over-the-ear cushions are comfortable but the hard plastic headband becomes painful in short order on the top of my head. Your mileage may vary. The one thing I really despise about these headphones is almost every time a lay them down on my desk, it pushes the battery-cover-release button so the battery cover pops off. Really a poor design.

    I bought these for a long airplane ride to Australia and indeed they did a fine job of cutting out the majority of the cabin noise in the aircraft. Considering the higher priced alternatives I have no problem recommending these. Incidentally, since returning from that trip I've been using these headphones in all manner of situations - I've found them particularly effective when mowing the yard! The only negative I can think of happens when it is hot outside and I've found the on-ear earcups tend to slide off rather too easily.

    Noise Cancellation On A Budget

    If you're looking for a very reasonably priced set of wired headphone that also have decent noise cancellation capability...These Sony MDRZX110NC/B over-the-ear headphones are for you. Ear Buds never seem to fit properly for me, so I prefer over-the-ear. These are comfortable, provide reasonable sound quality, and come with a GREAT price! I finally wore the predecessor set to these out after many years of use and purchased the MDRZX110NC/B headphones as a replacement and I'm quite satisfied.

    These headphones are good for the price, however, like other people mentioned, they're over the ear, so after some time it can get uncomfortable. The noise cancelling is acceptable. It definitely helps with the plane noise. One note is that the adaptor for in-flight entertainment may not work in some airlines/plane models (it did not work for me on Latam from the US to South America), however I just plugged it in directly in one of the jacks and it was fine. I would recommend this to someone with a tight budget.
