The black MDR-NC8 Noise Canceling Headphones from Sony are active noise canceling headphones that are built for compact transport and comfort. Made for use on the subway, train, plane or at the office, the MDR-NC8s are designed to reduce ambient noise by up to 90% when the noise canceling circuitry is activated. The noise is reduced by a noise canceling circuit that senses outside noise with built-in microphones and sends an equal but opposite canceling signal to the headphones.
The MDR-NC8s boast 30mm drivers with neodymium magnets designed to allow for powerful bass and clear high frequency response. The lightweight (6.0oz), on-ear design aims to allow for comfortable listening over long periods of time. The ergonomically shaped, flexible earpads and the adjustable headband also contribute to a build designed for extended use during leisure and travel.
