The MDR-10RNC Noise-Canceling Headphones from Sony are designed to reduce ambient noise up to 99% while playing back audio from your portable device. Its active noise-canceling technology is powered by a single included AAA battery and has the choice of three modes: aircraft, train, and office. The mode is set based on an analysis of the environment. The headphones themselves feature 40mm drivers tuned to provide accentuated bass response.

Two cables are included with the MDR-10RNC; a single-sided stereo connector and a single-sided smartphone control cable that is compatible with Android and Apple devices. The smartphone control cable also works with the SmartKey app on Android devices, allowing you to customize functionality. A single AAA battery, in-flight plug adapter, and carrying pouch are included.

          I use the headphones while listening to TV, but bought them for traveling on international flights. They work fine so far. The only negative is, the sound cannot be adjusted, supposedly that can be done only with smartphones.

            I needed rue noise-cancelling headphones and have tried many different brands, styles, etc., without success. I have stopped looking. These are great!

            They are super noise-cancelling, super comfortable, and I definitely recommend them to other customers.
