…On a long flight to Africa, I "tested" the Sony headset against my colleague's Bose headset. I found the two pairs essentially equal in terms of comfort and noise cancellation. Where the Sony clearly outperformed the Bose was the music quality. (This is not surprising given Sony's long history of producing electronics with good sound.) My colleague also tested out the two pairs and had the same reaction. When we later discussed the pros and cons of the headsets, it was better music quality and lower price (Sony) versus the cache of owning Bose headphones. Needless to say, my Sony's still fly everywhere with me. Read Full Review
These headphones are great for planes and college dorms. Press a button
and all sounds vanish, or pretty close to it. Sony developed a great product. Read Review
Best bang for the buck on the market, tested Bose, JVC, and Sony models. These work as well as the Bose at a fraction of the cost. Experienced the background "vibration" I read about in other reviews only once. Taking them off and putting them back on seemed to do the trick. My wife gets the vibration more often, but also found that adjusting them eliminates the problem. Good quality with my Ipod Nano, they work well on planes, and helped me a couple of times to get more rest with early morning garbage trucks outside. But their real worth came on my ski trip, where I shared a room with 3 snoring buddies.
“A. Hicks”I've used noise canceling headphones since the original models with large electronics packs around 2 decades ago. I use them on plane trips, but also almost daily at work when I have to program test systems on very loud production floors. Just prior to the MDR-NC60's I had a pair of the larger Bose headphones for 6 years, including trips to Singapore and India. I had to replace the Bose headphones when the plastic hinge pin holding one of the cups to the frame finally wore out and disintegrated. The Sony's are very slightly less comfortable than the Bose units, but in my own context I have observed no performance deficiencies.
