Review: Sony MDRZX110NC Noise Cancelling Headphones

I picked these up from my local JB Hifi store on the weekend for $65 after my EarPods died.

Pros

  • They'll muffle sounds around you, making it easier to concentrate.
  • Pretty comfortable to wear for a long time.
  • Podcasts sound great, music sounds alright
  • Fold flat when you're not using them.
  • Apparently can run for 80 hours off a single AAA
  • They'll Continue to work when out of power, sans noise cancellation.

Cons

  • Noise Cancellation is super weak. I could still hear most noises around me, they were just a bit muffled.
  • While they look ok, they feel really cheap. They proabbaly wouldn't be too hard to break, but no more easily than a pair of $400 Beats Studios.

Are they worth $65?

Yep.

Pick these up if you're after a pair of decent headphones on the cheap to block out noise at work or on your commute home.
