Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Over the Head
Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

On-Ear
Specifically For

General Features

Noise-Canceling
Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
Yes
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

Corded
1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

No
Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
No
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
No
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
8 - 23000 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
103 dB
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
40 mm
Driver Type
The physical design of the driver in the headphones.
Dynamic

The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
68 ohms

A good value and good quality

September 17, 2013

Like most travelers I really wanted a set of noise cancelling earphones that would do the job on an airplane or in crowded areas but I just couldn't see putting out the money for the Bose Quiet Comfort. The Sony were reviewed very well and the price was considerably lower. I am pleased to report the noise cancelling ability of these earphones is very good and the sound quality is great. I use them every day to watch movies in a large public eating area with a lot of noise and never notice. Two men sat next to me today and they were obviously carrying on an active conversation and I never heard a word they were saying. Good job, Sony, and good price!

good flight headphones

July 31, 2013

I purchased the MDR-NC200D primarily to be used while flying. I like the foldup feature and the compact case, and they are very comfortable for long use. The noise canceling effect is hard to detect, which may be a good thing, and the control buttons are a little awkward to use, but the overall sound quality is good and they block out most of the airline noise,

Wonderful Headphones

July 9, 2013

I purchased these headphones primarily for when I travel by air to block out the plane noises and for that they are great. I also love that they fold up and have a nice carrying case which keeps things organized and easy to carry. The sound from the headphones is also great. The only problem I have with them is that after a half hour to an hour my ears start feeling pressured and I have to remove them for a bit. However, I wear glasses and this may be part of the problem. I wouldn't hesitate to buy these headphones again if I lose the current ones.

Great Value

May 24, 2013

I bought this primarily because we were going to travel overseas and I didn't want to use the headphones provided by the airlines. I own a Sennheiser which my wife was going to use and I needed another pair. I actually wanted to get a Bose but was not willing spend the money. This model is On-the-ear and and a little heavier because it is compact and all the controls are on the earphones. It shouldn't be an issue unless you're flying, wearing glasses and using it for +12 hours because your ear being pressed between your glasses and the headphones will hurt. The monitor feature is a plus because you don't have to take off the phones to hear outside conversation.

Noise Cancelling Headphones

November 8, 2012

My husband wanted a pair of noise cancelling headphones for his birthday. I checked different reviews, decided Bose was too expensive but Sony MDR-NC200D was rated highly and affordable. My husband travels by airplane several times a year for work and loves using these. He has now used them several times for travel and no complaints so far. His boss traveled with him on one trip, tried these out and now he owns this Sony headphone.

Great Product! Worth Every Penny!

July 2, 2012

I have had these headphones now for 3 months and I am still surprised with how great they sound. Every time I am traveling, or going on a long drive, these are my #1 accessory. The price is not too high, and they are built well. I have tried numerous different noise cancelling headphones and most of them have a "hissing" sound that drives me nuts. These are very subtle, and non intrusive to the music. I am really able to relax and forget about whatever is going on around me. Great Purchase! Best in Class!
