Annoying intermittent thump Bought this to replace my Bose noise cancelling headphones whose headband broke. Sounds like a whisper at full volume I recently drove myself, after a lot of careful consideration.

Worth every penny. Bought these for a long haul flight to Australia. Cancelled out engine and cabin noise brilliantly. Good sound quality.

over-priced Not much better - if at all - than the MDR NC60, which is now much less than half the price. Good but at a price I fly long haul quite regularly and felt the price was worth the investment considering what you pay for a business class ticket t... Sony MDR- NC500 does exactly what it says on the can I purchased the NC500 as a replacement for the Sony NC6 that I purchased back in 2004.

Consumer Reports Was Wrong On This One I am a big believer in Consumer Reports. Not so great on an airplane Just like others have written, I experienced a "pressure wave" when using these on an airplane.

I read the reviews here before I bought them ... I deeply regret selling my Bose QuietComfort ...  None. Totally disappointing experience.
