"Noise isolation good, Noise cancelling not noticeable"3.0 starson by crazycbrrider
Pros: Looks noise and has great quality in manufacturing. Cord is good quality. Good fit in ear canal
Good quality sound for all kinds of music. Isolation for train, car and low to medium frequency up to 70-80 decibels noises is good. Cuts by half at least.
Cons: Noise cancelling does not work. I tried for 3 long days in various environment i.e. standing near heavy traffic, riding a motorbike, sitting in noisy old trains, to see if the noise cancellation works. It does not.
What works is noise isolation (cushion
Summary: Looks good, and works well. I don't think the noise cancelling makes it any better. Not worth $100 that I paid let alone Sony RRP at $169. If I knew it does not work for high frequency noises, I would have not bought it cause I went to buy something for use on my motorcycle.
If I could return it, I would, but being earphones due to hygiene regulation in Australia, you cannot return them.
