    My wife surprised me with these at Christmas. I truly wanted to like them. They are light and comfortable for long sessions. The noise cancelling if useful but the battery depleted VERY fast. I don't use this circuit anymore. I constantly forget to set the cancelling switch to off when removing the phones. The phone could have cut the circuit when the phone are idle, but this was not a feature. This makes recommending the phones a deal breaker. All else about the product is quite good.

    From the regular 20 headphones which by the way lasted a very long time. Had such a good experience with Sony thought i try these. These headphones are sturdy and extreemly comfortable. The sound emission is very good not to mention the noise canceling part most definitely worth the price. My daughter loves these. Although they are not wireless they do require the use of a AAA battery which i found a bit wired. Nonetheless so far so good.

    decent noise canceling

    The main thing to remember here is that this is a budget noise canceling headphone. It blocks certain frequencies very well while letting others through. It's not big enough to cover around and over the ears completely so there is potential for extra noise if not positioned correctly. I've used this on international flights and it does a decent job cancelling some of the background noise but leaving the human voices intact. Listening to music on this is a pleasure, really good sound.

    Headphones are okay for short flights

    The noise cancelling headphones are okay. I did notice a good amount of airplane noise reduced by them. However, the music quality in them was not what was expected. Also, over the ear headphones are tricky if you try and sleep on the plane as they easily get knocked off by travel pillows or the seat. This is difficult for international flights, which is why I bought them. I would recommend spending a little more money and getting ear-bud type headphones.

    NOT over-ear!

    Was looking for low cost, over-ear noise cancelling headphones and found these Sony's with good reviews. When I picked up the order, the box seemed oddly small for over-ear headphones. My suspicions were confirmed when I unpacked them and tried them on. These are not even close to over-ear as described! These are an on-ear design all day long- and uncomfortable ones at that. Very disappointed in Best Buy for allowing an inaccurate description which, ultimately, wasted my time.

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my girlfriend that works in a loud office. We tested it out, and I can confirm that when the noise canceling function is active most of the ambient noise (to include voices) is effectively blocked out. I also appreciate that the noise canceling can be switched off to save battery power, and that they then function as standard headphones. The sound quality is excellent in both modes.

    Inexpensive and somewhat effective

    These headphones do a decent job of removing low- end noise. They provide active noise cancellation of constant sounds such as in- flight jet noise. Sound reduction is about 50% especially at 200 hertz and below. Used for 16 hour flight and was able to hear movies well. The headphones rest on the ears but I did not find them too uncomfortable. These headphones are not as amazing as the Bose but for the money are a very good option. 1 double A battery was still strong after 16 hours.

    In a fairly quiet store / home the sound of these headphones are amazing; however on a plane they are as effective as placing tissues in your ears. Too bulky to not be have any effect on surrounding sounds. If you are looking for something to reduce sound these are not it. So I tried to keep them for just a normal headphone but if you don't s flip the "noise canceling" switch all you get is static. Spend the money and get something more effective. Not recommended

    The sound quality is good. When you turn on the noise cancellation is does remove some of the background noise. I am not sure if it removes all noise but enough that I didn't get distracted from watching my movie on the airplane. It does hurt your ears/side of head after wearing for several hours. I just removed it for a little while, and then I put it back on. So much better than earbuds.

    Sony MDR-ZX110NC Sound like SUPER QUALITY!

    I was really taken by these headphones. They are simply FANTASTIC! I was pleasantly surprised by how well they cancel out noise. When I want to tone out the kids..and just have a break for myself- I put these babies on with a good "R" rated movie...sit back..and feel like I'm in my own private movie theatre...not a sound or disruption from the crumb snatchers! You won't be sorry you bought these! Perfect for airplane flights and noisy constant intercom interruptions or screaming children.

    I bought these to muffle most of the noise while I work and they do very well. As the box says, they do not cancel people talking in the background, so don't expect that if you decide to buy these for that reason. They are also very comfortable while at the same time, don't feel very heavy either. They also fold up to a compact size which is also a plus. Overall, these are a good set of headphones.

    I had received a pair of these headphones as a gift awhile ago. My granddaughter was using them and broke the wire. I was glad that Best Buy still carried these headphones. They were the best of both worlds, I could hear what was going around me or I could have complete quiet. I was a bit concerned that the replacements would not be as good as the old ones. Well, there are! I am very, very pleased.

    Good headphones with sound quality that isn't extraordinary but too good to complain about for the $50 price. They only slightly cancel noise and don't do as good a job at this as adversitied, so I would recommend not buying these on the noise cancellation aspect alone. If you are looking for reasonably priced and reliable headphones with at least decent sound that dont warrant any complaints or disappointment, these are your headphones.

    I have a disabled brother with a hearing deficit and was looking for noise canceled headphones for him to use with his IPad. He can hear using headphones. I am not tech savvy. The young man who assisted me in the store (so wish I could remember his name!) was very knowledgeable and had worked with handicapped students in high school. He recommended this one for the price and quality. It couldn’t be a more perfect choice!

    I noticed that there was construction going on down the street and I work at home so hearing the rat-at-tat-tat all day long for weeks was not an option. I went to Best Buy and found these, great quality, good noise-dampening [not canceling] headphones. Sturdy and comfortable. Great price. If you want functionality with no frills, this is your choice. They will not shut out sound, but definitely tone it down and sound from my ipad is good.

    Well the noise cancelling is good

    I don't know if it is just because I have been use to the same brand headphone for years (Bowers & Wilkins) or not, but these are just don't seem to be clear enough. The bass is just enough however, It seems to be lacking the volume where it seems a bit muffled and it also seems put together cheaply. The reason I gave it 3 stars was because the noise canceling is pretty good.These maybe would be good for running maybe but i don't think they sound as good for movies.

    I had a pair of BOSE noise cancelling headphones, and I loved them. BUT, the ear pieces were always tearing so quickly. I replaced them three times, and then gave up. I didn't want to spend a kidney's worth of money this time, so I opted for these less expensive headphones. Much to my surprise, I found them to work great, considering the price. They fit comfortably and they're great (at least for me) at cancelling out all the unwanted noise.

    Great for drowning out sound for seizure disorder

    My wife has a seizure disorder that is triggered by certain sounds and beats. We are both disabled and on a fixed income but really needed to find something to help with drowning out sounds to minimize her seizure activity. They are not 100% perfect, but are still shockingly good for the price. These are definitely worth the money. I have tried them myself and goodness... they sound beautiful. Thank you for having this product available.

    I bought these headphones basically because I could not afford the ones I really wanted which were the Sony 1000 (I think) or the Bose Q35 Noise Cancelling headphones. These were ok for the money, but did not block out the noise as much as I needed them to. But they were decent and my music sounded pretty good through them. I just needed more noise cancelling ability. That's just me.

    The Sony headphones are a good value for a set of decent noise cancelling headphones. They are comfortable to wear for sustained periods of time. The noise cancelling tech. works well (tested in an airplane). They do require a single AAA battery and have an on/off switch for the noise cancelling (which I often forget to turn off at the end of my listening session). Good product at a good price
