Sony MDR-NC200D Digital Noise-Canceling Headphones

The obvious comparison for any noise canceling headphones, is against the Bose Quiet Comfort series - which is arguably the industry standard, at least from a familiarity and brand recognition perspective. Fortunately, I have a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 2 and was able to do a good side-by-side comparison.
In my case, Sony edged out Bose and won this comparison. Here's why:

I am not a qualified audiophile, and can't quote impressive specifications and explain in mathematics why one thing sounds better than another. Having confessed that though, I am a very picky listener, and I have a high standard of quality for audio products.
How I tested - I used the Sony MDR-NC200D's extensively in a number of environments, with a variety of music. Environments included sitting in a room with a loud TV going, other music playing, conversations taking place, outdoor traffic and lawnmower noise, and even during a long vacuuming session. Music ranged from hard rock to classical, but for my benchmark side-by-side testing I used Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon.

I found the Sony headphones to be superior in producing very clear, crisp sound compared to Bose. The most subtle of elements in the audio are crystal clear with very good separation. Bose seems to muddy some of these nuisances, most likely a result of the noise canceling signal they use. Sony is able to block the ambient noise at least as well as Bose (I think slightly better) but without the side effect of dullness to the audio you are listening to. This example won't mean anything to people not familiar with the album, but during "Great Gig In The Sky" you can clearly hear the soft spoken background words far better with the Sony's than with Bose.

I am not a frequent flyer, but take four or five airline trips a year. My travelling companions are usually an iPod for background music and a totebag full of books...essential to the journey, but problematic. After about 30 minutes, my ears ache from the earbud and one arm is stretched past my knees from lugging the books. On board, the noise of the engines overwhelms the the iPod, and after struggling to get the carry-ons wedged under the seat and buckling my seatbelt, I'm pretty much stuck with whatever book I have in hand, whether or not it turns out to be any good. These Noise-Cancelling Headphones (and the Kindle) eliminate those problems.

The Sony MDR-NC200D Digital Noise-Canceling Headphones are very comfortable. Most headphones are heavy, bulky and make me feel like I'm wearing a Prussian helmet. These are lightweight and compact, and so comfortable, I'm barely aware of wearing them.

They do a very good job of eliminating outside noises. Some reviewers complain that sound is distorted when the volume is high. This isn't a deal killer for be because I keep them set at a moderate level...I like my background music to stay in the background and don't think it's realistic to expect these speakers and an iPod to provide the same quality of sound that you'd get from an expensive set of speakers. You can also plug the headphones into the airline's entertainment system and save yourself yet another annoying surcharge...while getting much better sound than on the headsets the carriers provide.

Because the headphones are so small, you can tuck them into a purse or briefcase and bring them out whenever needed to prevent falling into a boredom induced when sitting in the dentist's waiting room or standing on line at the DMV.

I just recently received these new headphones by Sony. I have had a run of headphones of all types over the last couple of years. A number of computers and stereos in different locations has me enjoying each one having their own. And I have never found any pair that I have been so satisfied with that has me being partial to any one model. These Sony 200Ds are my latest. I'll be the first one to admit that despite the number I have owned over the years, I am not a true audiophile. I will not compare the raw statistics between models. I simply can tell you about what I hear, and of the quality of them and their comparison to others I own...

Right out of the box I can tell you that these 200Ds may be the most quality set of phones I have ever held. The leather on the headset as well as the pads are of a very high quality, and they are extremely well made and top of the line through out. The phone pads themselves are not the over the ear type despite their appearance in the picture, but very thickly padded ones that sit upon the ear with a very tight and solid, but comfortable fit. The leather on these phones is butter soft). One pad holds the single AAA battery, (not included) that runs the noise reduction system, and its very easy to install. Buttons on the battery pad controls the noise reduction on and off, a noise reduction test button that determines what mode of noise reduction is detected, (Just press it and it does it all for you automatically. Do it once and that's it, unless you move or the noise in the room changes), and a cancel button to temporarily shut the NR off. As far as these phones actual performance, switching the NR on definitely brings the quality of these phones front and center. The highs are very distinct and sharp and the clarity outstanding.
