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.
