Rated 5 out of 5 by Coug So, it's sound you want, eh?
OK, are they a bit pricey? Yup, but if you want the best, you know the rest of the story. Performance, physically they have outstanding comfort and controls. The sound is frankly, surprising and once again, outstanding. Over all, I'd not only recommend them but if a close friend was in the market. I'd force em to get these, the best headphones I have ever owned. Sony has outdone themselves with their Digital Noise Canceling Headphones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CyberCorn Great headphones
The headphones it self is very good in my opinion, the sound its great and the nc is absolutely perfect in my opinion except when its windy or biking... but all nc headphones have that problem...
The design is without dough perfect.
I have to let you guys know. Some who wrote review also mentioned
The headphones are REALLY sharp in the high frequency. (Kind of hurt while listening) So I set the equalizer on the 14K and above really low and it works great. But for the price of these headphones, its a shame that they set it so bright on the high end...
Sry for the bad english, isnt my base language and kind of have exam tomorrow so dunt really have time xD

Rated 4 out of 5 by Slim8452 Best Sounding Headphone as a Noise Canceling area
Bought this as special offer price(349+Tax) at metrotown Sony store.
I was looking for NC headphones that sounds also good. I tried Beat Studio2, Bose QC15, 3 and I found them they are way too bassy for me. I am audiophile so I cares about sound quality a lot and when I listened MDR-1rnc, I was Stunned. I never listened NC headphone that sounds really good. They sound very natural and balanced. but There is quite big emphasize on high frequency area around 10khz. So some people will find it too bright or too aggressive. Try them before you buy because of these emphasized high frequency.
NC works Good overall but when its windy day, NC function actually amplify wind noise. Therefore I recommend to use this headphone inside of train, air plain or inside of noisy building. You will find very anointed by wind noise if you use this on the road in windy day.
