Not Ready for production
By BusinessUserVerified Reviewer from Miami,FL on 3/27/2009

This unit has strange noises (thumping) and when I try to change the mode it flips back and forth not to the next mode. Not usable and sending it back for an exchange. Also This unit has hard pads that are uncomfortable on long flights. The QC2 and 3 work better. Sony's support is poor.

Incredible sound however there's a failure???
By GermyVerified Reviewer from Farmington CT on 3/10/2009

I bought Sony headphones twice now, this is the second time I have the same problem ...on left speaker an intermittent sound starts after few minutes working. Not sure why but it happen twice to me.On first headphones set -MDR-NC50, after a year or so, I have to listen a constant buzzing while on the go -on a bus or a plane -especially when I had altitude changes. It was so bad that I need to turn off the noise canceling feature and hear the music + external noise.I decided to buy this model -MDR-NC500D just because I thought the digital NC was a nice feature and would never have the same problem again. Despite my hopes, now I'm having same problem back, it starts with some constant, repeated interruptions on left speaker -sounds like a drum, very low sound, about every 1/3 of a second, until I either separate the left speaker a little bit from my ear and/or change the AI NC mode manually -and some times not even that helps. It's really uncomfortable.NOTE: sometimes the same defective sound effect can be heard is left speaker is being firmly pushed against the ear,The real problem is that I can't turn off the NC feature on these new headphones, as the sound goes completely off too as a difference to the old ones.Can someone help me to explain if I'm doing something wrong or is just a headphone defective construction or so?Thanks ...Germy

I have owned three other ...

excellent noise cancelling, Superb sound reproduction, very comfortable around the ears
case too large (don't use it)

I have owned three other noise cancelling headphones over the years and these are the best. They block out everything from the outside. Even your own voice. It's like being in a vacuum.The fit is a little small around the ears but they are very light. The programs have no trouble adjusting to different ambient sounds though just leaving them on automatic works for most surroundings. Figuring out the button presses is intuitive. Great battery life so far. There is a standard battery gaget to allow use when far away from power.On the bullet train in Japan they completely block out the noise around me but whenever the train would go through a tunnel the system would be confused with the air pressure changes. Through the whole tunnel I would get the "whoop, whoop, whooping" sound. Otherwise the perfect travel companions.

I am glad I bought this noise canceling headphone over other brands. Great at mid and highs....Bass is just right. I own couple other brands but this one beats them all....

Better than Bose QCII or 3
By davearnVerified Reviewer from San Jose, CA on 1/10/2009
Bose, panasonic..., superb audio quality surpassing beats by dr dre
Mediocre noise cancelling.

Got these for XMAS, and the noise reduction is outstanding. Overall sound reproduction is great too - excellent bass, great treble, realistic voice, etc.Only issue I have: when "sealed to ear" (without wearing glasses, etc.), and volume is loud; there is an occasional feedback loop on bass that causes very annoying warbling effect. Headphones must be adjusted on head to stop the warbling. Only noted on good rock music at loud levels (which I like ..., sadly). Effect is minimized (rarely occurs) when I wear my glasses - which create an air/noise gap.Otherwise, a real winner; and if you listen at "normal levels", you'll not notice the issue.
