The white 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.

    I do not recomend it

    By Sergi

    Comments about Sony MDR-NC8 Noise Canceling Headphones (White):

    The quality of sound is not amazing, but on the box you can read up to 90% of noise cancelling... The reality is that I am not able to feel a difference between NC on or off.
    So this model is cheap, but doesn't deliver what I expected at all

      Comments about Sony MDR-NC8 Noise Canceling Headphones (White):

      I can tell no difference between noise cancelling and not. It sounds like fuzz with some clicking. If they cost more than $[$]I would consider the hassel to return. I'm keeping and using as regular low quality headphones - you get what you pay for...

        Comments about Sony MDR-NC8 Noise Canceling Headphones (White):

        Bought this as a gift for my teenage daughter who had her eyes set on far too expensive headphones by Ludacris. She loves them. The white color is "cool" and the sound is quite good considering the price. The sound is better without noise reduction, but when there is no sound, noise reduction can help reduce ambient noise by playing a sound that mimics waves.
