Sony MDR-NC8 Review

Sony MDR-NC8 is the perfect set of headphones for travelling, because they provide noise cancellation without compromising on the quality of sound output. This product is extremely travel-friendly and provides remarkable noise cancellation.

 

Sony MDR-NC8 comes with soft ear pads that provide comfort for long use, and it also has a foldable design, which allows users to carefully stow away the headphones making it one of the most portable headphones available in the market. The signal processing technology of Sony ensures that you get the maximum output sound quality and ambient noise around you and the background noise are reduced by almost 85%-90%.

 

The noise cancelling feature of Sony MDR-NC8 provides a peaceful and immersive experience without interference from the background noise. The headphones can efficiently reduce ambient noise; however, a special noise cancelling circuit has to be activated for this feature. The headphones provide clear treble and powerful bass, which are one of the best in the price range as compared to the other headphones available in the market. The noise cancelling feature does drain battery; thus, if your battery is low and you cannot find a spare battery then you can always listen to your favorite music for a little longer by turning off the noise cancellation feature. The outer casing of the headphones is long-lasting and lightweight, which provides comfort in wearing the headphones for long durations. Moreover, the ear pads have been shaped ergonomically and are quite flexible, all of which increases its durability. The ear pads have been combined with an adjustable headband that helps to adjust the headphones as per your convenience and comfort.

 

Sony MDR-NC8 has been designed with a dual folding design, which makes it extremely portable and compact for storage in any handbag, bag, or backpack. Despite the dual folding design the flexibility of the headphones does not affect the quality of sound output. The headphones run on AAA batteries, and provide between 75 to 80 hours of listening time. The active noise-cancelling headphones rely on the physical construction of the headphones to shield the ear from noise, and they use a built-in microphone or microphones to sample the external racket. This approach has been used with considerable success by Sennheiser with its NoiseGard line and Bose with its QuietComfort series.

 

Thus, Sony MDR-NC8 will allows you to enjoy your favorite music and tunes in peace without having to worry about ambient noise or pain due to prolonged usage of the headphones. This unit, in comparison to the other headphones available in the market, features supra-aural on ear design to provide maximum comfort, and it can fit securely with the adjustable headband. It can suppress up to 10 dB of noise in the background, and provide the most soulful and peaceful tunes in the noisiest environments without any disturbance.

  • The Good :
    Noise cancellation feature; Economical due to dry batteries; Soft ear pads
  • The Bad :
    Expensive; There is nothing really unique about it among the top-end choices in the market
Our score:
4.5 / 5
