    Best Bang for Buck NC Headphones
    Pros: noise cancelling almost as good as bose qc-15, much more natural sounding than the bose, good sound stage, incredible price, understated yet stylish
    Cons: the bass extension is not as deep as the bose, doesn't have ios compatible inline controls & mic
    Model Number: MDR-10RDC
    "These are identical to the Sony MDR-10RNC but model number changes for Costco (and the removal of the inline remote for costs). These are a slight revision of Sony's top shelf MDR-1RNC and are part of their premium headphone product line.
    I have a pair of Sennheiser HD-555 cans as reference. I also auditioned both the Bose QC-15 and have a pair of trusty MDR-NC60. As far as headphones with active-noise canceling (which are always a trade-off in sound) these are great. They do sound a bit colored (i.e. not completely flat) but that's not a bad thing. Sony's noise canceling has improved over previous generations and are nearly on-par with the Bose QC-15's. I preferred the sound on these over the Bose--which I felt sounded a bit too processed--though punchy. (It's subjective and depends on the type of music you enjoy listening too.)
    In the end, I kept these and also bought a pair of Bose AE2 (non-noise canceling). In total, I still spent less that I would have buying a set of QC-15!"

    Great Headphones!
    Pros: great sound in noise cancelling mode.
    Cons: costco version does not include the smart cable.
    Model Number: Sony MDR-10RNC
    "I narrowed down my final two choices for noise cancelling headphones to these Sony MDR-10RNC and the Bose QC15 headphones. I chose Sony for the better sound quality, feel and look. The Bose QC15's amazing noise cancelling is worth the higher price but the look and feel of the headphones does not match the price.
    Bose does a better overall job of noise cancelling and blocking out higher frequency sounds and talking. These Sony headphones are good at blocking out the lower frequency ambient noises, just not as well as Bose.
    The Bose QC15's created more pressure in my ears over the MDR-10RNC's. I believe it might be that higher pressure feeling increasing their noise cancelling.
    Also, the Bose has a proprietary audio cable and the headphones will not work passively without power.
    I'm using my HTC One with Beats Audio driver and PowerAmp Music Player. These cans sound amazing with the noise cancelling active. They respond beautifully to EQ adjustments.

    Pleasantly surprised
    Pros: effective noise cancellation, reasonable sound quality, comfortable for extended listening, easy to carry with supplied case
    Cons: sound quality drop when nc is turned off
    Model Number: MDR-10RDC
    "I tried the demo in the store and I was sold on the NC capability, but I was not too sure about the sound quality, as demo songs are routinely chosen and set up to cover up the phone's weaknesses.
    Bought one home and compared with head phones that cost multiple times more, however, I was pleasantly surprised. When NC is turned on it sounds reasonably good. Bass is mostly tight - showing signs of losing control with some songs. The highs roll off a bit towards the top, but it's only noticeable with my classic CDs. Mids are clean, sometimes a bit harsh with female vocals. But this could be subjective. It could also smooth out once the drives get broken in.
    Turning NC off, however, mids and highs both suffer significant loss. Turning up volume can bring them back but bass becomes too boomy.
    I would recommend it to non-audiophile users. It is comfortable for long listening periods. Just need to keep a backup AAA battery handy to avoid using it with NC off.

    Worth it over some other NCHPs Costco so - imo ; )
    Pros: lightweight, solid construction, better aaa battery life vs other nchps costco sold
    Cons: audio not quite as bright as other nchps cstc sold, battery door a little difficult to open, uses special audio cord not any cord will do!
    Model Number: MCD-10RDC
    "The ear cup/pad design is by far more comfortable (the foam inside the pads is softer) & more roomy (my ear actually fits within the over the ear cup with room inside to spare) which was NOT the case with the prior set of AblePla**t NCHPs (Noise Cancelling Head Phones) I had been using (which would cause my ears to ache if used more than 1 hour w/o taking them off for a while). Can wear these indefinitely with comfort! Also these Sony NCHPs are not a AAA battery hog like the prior set I was using. The sound from the Sony's is just a hair lower in "brightness" compared to the last pair, but only a true audiophile would object as the increase in comfort makes the just barely noticeable difference in sound well worth it the trade off. Granted these Sony NCHPs are 2.5 times the price of my prior set, but are no where near the ridiculous price level of the well know B*se brand NCHPs."
