Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"- coming with USB charging cable for internal battery, cable to be use in plane and one most important thing - with cable including mic and control to be able to received phone calls when headphones are used with iPhone- compatible with iPhone, iPod, iPad- very comfortable ear pads delivering long-term comfort- fits perfectly and even they are a little bit heavier then for example QC25 I didn't have problem using them on long haul flight- can be use with noise cancelling off - in this case they sounds more like Beats when higher frequencies are missing and there is more bass- coming with good carry case which provide enough space to also carry cables and even iPod or iPod Touch - not any fancy bagCONS:Really didn't found anything so far."
_

Music

Music:
"Very good noise cancelation far away sounds, even if its loud)Cons:Weak on bassCan't really enjoy music unless above 50 percent volume (my opinion)weak male singers sound qualityGet super hot under the ear cups (sweating already)If you have a small head this headphone will look ridicules on you."
_
"The NC600D used to be a little light on the bass and wasn't the best choice for modern music like electro or rap, but these 1RNC have kick-ass bass along with nice and clear mediums, and crisp trebles."
_
"It feels that noise cancelation is only good if there are music on."
_
"He was truly surprised and thought it was far greater than Bose for their music listening abilities."
_
"These headphones help you appreciate music again."

"Great sound, but the noise cancellation misses nearly all aircraft engine noise, had no choice but to find another pair."
_
"For: Great build quality and looks awesomeAgainst: If noise cancelling is off sound is terrible."
_
"(sister tried it on LOL)Noise cancelation is weak with noise within 5~7 feet."
_
"They are not perfect, there are variations of noise that can be heard, especially sharp, sudden noises, but the overall noise cancelling is incredible, especially the way they adapt to the level of noise coming from your surroundings."
_
"Since 2010 I was using Sony MDR-NC60 noise cancelling headphones and I was very happy with their performance, both sound quality and noise cancelling."
_
"Great sound, but no noise cancelling at all."
_
"Most of all, it did some real amazing noise cancelling which if not on par comes damn close to Bose."
_
"Wow, great noise cancelling sometimes slightly too much that it made my ears hurt for some reason."

Price

Price:
"I did like the sound from this headphone, but not as good as other headphones in this price range."
_
"Also, the full (original) retail price for the older model was a ridiculous $500+, now discounted to ~$300 - so if you choose this model, make sure you don't pay full MSRP (i. e., don't buy from the Sony Store :-))."
_
"The only big downside is price though."
_
"I can't in good conscience keep these headphones at this price."
_
"Now I am getting the newer version of these headphones and much less expensive and at a reasonable price."
_
"Excellent performance for the price."
_
"The Bose do look and feel like cheap plastic, although they are more durable than their appearance belies."
_
"Not cheap, but for sure well spent money if you want a high end, top notch pair of NC headphone."
