If you thought that Bose produced the best digital headphones then you will be glad to know that the Sony MDR-NC200D digital headphone is making a very courageous effort to compete with it. The nice thing about this pair of headphones from Sony is that it can automatically switch between 3 different modes after it has done analyzing the ambient noises in your present environment. What’s more, this headphone continues to output even when the noise cancellation feature is not activated and also when the battery is not in use. This is good because the Sony MDR-NC200D digital headphonesuffers from the problem of producing some amount of distortion on tracks which have plenty of deep bass and when the noise-cancelling feature is triggered.
Design of the Sony MDR-NC200D digital headphone
In some ways, the Sony MDR-NC200D digital headphone looks pretty similar to the headphone from Bose. However, it takes a very novel approach to noise cancellation. Depending on ambient noise the headphone will start creating sound waves that are exactly opposite to the waves being produced in the environment. The end result is that all consistent noises will be eliminated including the sound of an airplane’s engine. However, the headphone may not succeed in eliminating the sounds made by someone who is talking while sitting next to you.
Here is a brief look at the pros and cons of the Sony MDR-NC200D digital headphone:
- Effectively cancels out ambient noises
- Is extremely comfortable to wear
- Excellent quality of active sounds
- It consumes too much battery power
- The quality of passive sound is not the best
- Needs to have better passive noise-isolation
If you are a person who likes to commute in a big city then you will know that the sounds made can be very loud as well as distracting. The sound of a bus engine whining and the clunky sounds made by a subway train passing near you and the sound of a child screaming can all irritate and disturb you. One option available to you is to crank up the sound in the headphones but this is not the best way of overcoming ambient noises.
Mercifully, modern technology has been successful in producing headphones with noise-cancelling features. This feature will cut out ambient noise and allow you to enjoy your music without being disturbed.
Sony has a history of producing outstanding noise cancelling headphones and the Sony MDR-NC200D digital headphone in particular is a very exciting product. The company claims that its Sony MDR-NC200D digital headphone is capable of reducing 98.2 percent of ambient noises for a maximum of twenty-two hours on a single battery. When we checked this product we were suitable impressed. We have no hesitation in recommending the Sony MDR-NC200D digital headphone to anyone who wants to enjoy their music without being distracted by outside noises.
