    The sound is good and the noise reduction adequate but the connecting cable is quite short so to watch tv on a computer is not very comfortable

    Got it priced matched with walmart's website and the product did lived up to my expectation but the only downside is the short wire and if you forgot to turn off the noise cancelling feature, it will drain the battery quickly.

    Quality of sound was adequate for its purpose, but the cord from headphones to where it needed to be attached would have been much better if longer.

    What's wrong with these headphones is cheap connections. How many times do they work till the wires mess up.

    nice set of headphones for my office. The only thing is the cord was too short for me, so I had to buy an extension.

    The Headset works well but the cord is too short to watch TV. Had to get to Radio Shack to buy an extension cord.

    Bulky, clunky, did not like the two wire setup. Didn't like the idea of the 2AA batteries required. Spend a bit more for something better.

    As usual with today's products, the wire is extra thin which means it won't last forever. Sound quality is good. Didn't notice much difference with the reduced noise feature.

    Bought these on sale and find them to be a great value. The only knock I'd have is that the cord is a little short. .

    I needed inexpensive noise cancellation headphones. These did the job but the wires are a bit annoying and limit my movement. If I had a bigger budget, I would purchase wireless ones.

    This is a great head set for the price. It is a replacement for the same product. The head set cord doesn't like the vacuum cleaner. LOL

    Great sound. Good isolation. My only criticism would be the short cable length. Other than that, very happy.

    OK for the purpose and the price

    Bought one of these for a cross-country flight. Seems to work OK for that, and the noise canceling really does make a difference, so I have bought another one for my wife to use on an upcoming trip. I agree with "technophile" that it really needs its own separate volume control, although a volume control in an inline cable pod would be marginally acceptable (I ended up having to buy a separate volume control in a cable extension). HOWEVER... I STRONGLY recommend that if "SonyListens" is going to respond to these reviews, do so with a response more helpful than just that identical canned response I see in all of your responses. If you can't take the time to provide a helpful response that actually addresses the issues, don't bother responding at all.

    I bought these headphones for my elderly mother, who is partially deaf and who lives in a nursing home. HD radio is her primary source of entertainment. The full over-the-ear cuffs block all ambient sound for her. The sound quality is very good. A minor inconvenience is that the cord is shorter than expected.

    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.

    Nice pair of noise cancelling phones

    I bought these not looking for noise cancelling but figured why not for $50. They have a nice balanced sound. Good bass but not overkill. I wanted some what of a neutral pair for my home recording studio. The only down side is not blue tooth, and the cable is pretty slim, so be careful not to get it pinched or caught under a chair leg, etc. Sony has great products and I recommend this one for s casual audio buff.

    I bought these to replace my older JVC noise cancelling headphones that I've had over a decade. They do attenuate noise better than my older JVC's, but for twice the price, I would expect that. The headphones fit comfortably for my few plane trips (over 4 hours long) and do fold up nicely. For the 4 trips (>16 hours), I'ven't replaced the battery yet. The con's though are: 1) The cord does not retract, whereas my older JVC's did. 2) The noise cancellation is a bit finicky - I noticed on a recent plane trip that if I move my head in one direction, they completely got rid of the noise, the other way it did not. For the price though, they were reasonable and are compact - good for plane trips for the most part, wish the cord would retract into the headphones though.
