Sony MDR-NC7 On-Ear "Noise Canceling" Headphone Review
We strongly recommend that you avoid buying these headphones.
Well, they're not the worst headphones we've reviewed, but we'll go out on a limb to say that you should probably reconsider if you find these on a shelf somewhere and feel like shelling out for them. The Sony MDR-NC7s massively underperform, and despite their claims to the contrary, don't actually cancel more than 2dB of ambient noise. On top of that, they require batteries to give you subpar performance at a price that just isn't really a good match for their quality. Don't believe us? Read on, intrepid headphone consumer.
