The Sony MDR-NC6 noise-cancelling stereo headphones feature an active, ambient sound-synthesizing circuit that significantly reduces lower-mid noise by over 10 dB at 300 Hz. The circuit, powered by a conventional "AAA" battery, may be switched on or off, enabling usage at home as standard stereo headphones.
The comfortable, padded headphone earcups offer a swiveling design, and an in-flight plug adapter is provided for airplane music service listening. The MDR-NC6's represents a versatile listening alternative in a very moderate price range.
