      Not worth the money.

      By Bob

      from Bobtown

      Comments about Sony® MDR-NC8 Noise-Canceling Headphones:

      These headphones are extremely quiet. Even with the noise canceling (which there isn't much of), I still can't hear a thing. Turning the power on doesn't affect the sound quality, volume, or noise cancellation whatsoever. I'm not even sure what the power button is supposed to turn on exactly. Don't waste your money on these. I plan on returning these tomorrow.

      Noise Cancellation Simply Doesn't Work

      By cwlh

      Pros

        Cons

        • Poor Sound

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sony® MDR-NC8 Noise-Canceling Headphones:

          I am a pilot and have a very good (Bose) headset for use in my own aircraft. I am therefore familiar with noise cancellation. I bought this headset to use with my BB10 to listen to podCasts on a long-haul flight and find that there is no difference whether the noise cancellation is turned on or off. They're going back, but if you do buy a set, don't bother to buy a battery for it --- it has no effect.

            Comments about Sony® MDR-NC8 Noise-Canceling Headphones:

            The noise cancelling feature is not worth the money. The only thing that muffles noise is the cushioned ear pads. That's not enough. These hp are going back. I'm disappointed Sony.

                No difference when i turn on the noise cancellation. At maximum volume I can still hear the people talking next to me. I bought this because I had a 8 hour traveling trip back home, it was a total disappointment. I have had headphones for $12 that were louder than this. Returning this item as soon as I get back from my trip.

                  Comments about Sony® MDR-NC8 Noise-Canceling Headphones:

                  Not worth the time I took to buy these. Not even large enough to covet the entire ear. Most of the noise reduction comes from the pads, which is normal, and almost none comes from the active noise-canceling electronics. When I cycled the power wwitch I could not clearly hear a difference of ambiant noise.

                  Comments about Sony® MDR-NC8 Noise-Canceling Headphones:

                  As the other reviewer said. Noise reduction is worthless. In fact I hear a faint hissing from headphones when its turned on. Headphones do a better job by themselves reducing noise then using the electronics. Otherwise OK sounding headphones. A step up from cheap earbuds that come with players.

                        Replaced Sony MDRNC7 with MDRNC8 What a disappointment.

                        What a difference. '7' was good for a cheap noise reduction headphone. '8' doesn't even block noise passively as well as my $20 Koss cheapies.

                        Total waste of money. Going back tomorrow.
