Rated 4 out of 5 by Elvin overall is helpful

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jackson0423 Make for a great gift (to yourself, someone else)
My cousin is heavy into music and a little bit into video editing and she really liked these headphones, which I gave to her as a Christmas gift. They cancel out most noise, depending on how loud the area around you is. Great for traveling and the hum of an airplane.
Price makes sense for the quality and noise canceling capabilities, they look nice, and my cousin said they are comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hawkeye Good product
I got these as a gift. Used them on the airplane and it did filter out some of the plane's drone. Unfortunately, it didn't do much for the crying baby behind me, but the instructions say they won't work on high pitched noise. THese are the first noise-cancelling ear buds I've used, so I can't compare to others, but without switching on the noise feature they are comfortable and work well, and probably only $15 or $20 more than a decent pair without the noise feature, so they seem like a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scootergal End Flight Fatigue!
Nothing wears you out faster on a flight than noise! These earbuds filter out the hum or engine noise in the cabin that drives me nuts! I keep them on and in my ears even if I don't have them plugged into anything! Arrive more relaxed without lugging big headsets around. What a deal!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vaio25 Some things to keep in mind
The noise canceling works fairly well, it isolates about 80% of the sorrounding noises but nothing to loud like a human voice from a couple meters away. The music for some reason sounds louder with the noise canceling function off, when I thought it would be the other way around. I give these 8.5/10 for price, quality materials, looks and funtcionality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by EdGj Disappointing Quality
While the headphones worked relatively well for the few times I have used them (6) they are now malfunctioning. Garbled sound is all that comes out of the earbuds. I have had them less than 6 months (outside the very short warranty period), kept them protected and now questioning the quality of Sony products. I have been a big fan of Sony for 30-years and can say I don't use the word disappointing very often, but I am disappointed especially with a lot of air travel in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Miche Great for the price
Very effective and comfortable. Cord with battery sometimes gets in the way if you move around a lot but still a good purchase compared to some of the other $300+ options out there.
So good my daughter stole them.
