Pros: works very well. makes airline travel a pleasure
"The ends of the cable do not have the same size jacks. Reviewers who have downrated the device because of the cable jacks may have used the wrong end. The straight end belongs in the headphone. The right angle end goes to the amplifier."

new toy or tool
Pros: ear comfort was very acceptable
Cons: takes up quite a bit of space in carry-on
Model Number: Sony MDR-10RDC
"I recently completed a trip by air to Florida. This is the first time I have used sound altering ear devices. They worked very well and I am pleased with this purchase. I have no information on how well these will last, they seem well made."

Pros: excellent noise cancellation., comfortable to wear.
Cons: power switch is too small and difficult to slide.
Model Number: MDR-10RDC
"I recently changed gyms and, as with most gyms, their flavor of music does not suit me, but I've become accustomed to just blocking it out. However, this new gym plays the music so loud that it was impossible for me to do so. I decided to try noise cancellation headsets.
I don't know how much better the more expensive brands work but must say for my use these are a perfect fit. When I tested the noise reduction at home, without playing music, I could barely hear my microwave running while standing two feet away. They also totally cancel out the fan noise from my computer.
This morning at the gym was the real test and they performed perfectly! I was able to listen to my own music from my Sanza music player at a medium volume and was not aware of the outside noise from the house music system. When I switched off the noise reduction I may as well have not even played my own music as it was overrun by the house music. The noise reduction system totally removes the offensive mid tones and bass tones; only a small amount of higher frequency sounds can be heard but only if I turned off my own music.
I did not give these headsets a 5 star rating because the power switch is so small I have difficulty sliding it. I have to use my thumb nail to turn it on and off. I find that most electronic devices made today cater to the younger crowd who have smaller hands and nimbler digits. Sony could easily correct this with a taller switch or one that has some sort rough surface that would make for better skin contact.
Lastly, there is no problem with the line cord plugs as I have read in previous reviews; just make sure they are pushed in all the way."

Pros: comfortable over the ear, easy to carry
Cons: short battery life, extraneous audio (radio cockpit etc), connecting cable does not stay seated well
"Very short battery life for the noise cancelling function. Cannot make it through 8 hours of flight time without a new battery. That being said it is nice that they can be used for audio without the battery. I also pick up radio stations and at time cockpit conversations. The latter being counterproductive to one of the reasons used in flight, to sleep, hearing the cockpit conversation certainly is a waker-upper."
