Maybe you spend more time on a plane than you do your house. Or maybe you just live/work/suffer with someone who talks REALLY REALLY LOUD. Sony's latest noise-cancelling headphones, the MDR-NC200D, are made for someone like you.
Equipped with 40mm drivers and Sony's own digital cancelling technology — which listens to the noise around you, then adjusts accordingly — these on-ear headphones feature digital equalisation and amplification, as well as an in-flight adaptor.
There's also a new in-ear version of these headphones, the MDR-NC100D, which has the same active noise-cancelling technology and in-flight adaptor.
The on-ear MDR-NC200D and in-ear MDR-NC100D will be available later this month for $US200 and $US150, respectively. [Sony]
