" ...  In terms of sound quality and noise cancelling, I find it to be excellent. ... To top it off, they are noise cancelling (!) ... and I find them to work surprisingly well blocking ambient noise. ... In comparison to the WH-1000XM3s, of course it is definitely not as precise, the noise cancelling is noticeably better and the sound stage on those headphones is large/more open.  ...  "

" ...  Great sound quality, noise cancellation and fits great in the ears.  ...  "

" ...  Really, these won't block out loud/direct conversations, but that doesn't diminish their usefulness. ... Once you add music to the mix, these really do block out the world really effectively, even on low volumes. ... Very impressed with the noise cancelling when combined with music, and even on its own with my tempered expectations.  ...  "

comment
" ...  So far I can say that the noise canceling is good but not great. ... In an environment with too much noise, the noise-canceling does a good job, but you can still hear some noise. ... What I love about the features is that with a touch you can deactivate the noise-canceling and hear normally, even better conversations from the people around you.  ...  "

comment
" ...  That's wildly different than my 2 year old Bose (wired) in-the-ear noise canceling earphones and it's lightyears away from Sony's own over-the-ear models. ... At this price, they barely performed better than my TRANYA $40 set of in-ear earplugs I usually use at the gym (passive noise canceling from plugs only). ... But performance-wise, the don't come anywhere near my wired noise canceling Bose, and for wireless, at $229 they don't offer enough to compete with my tiny, water-resistant Tranyas.  ...  "
comment
" ...  No noise cancellation compared to the WH-1000XM3 I own. ... Will keep enjoying the WH headset, which is fantastic and has a real and super effective noise cancellation (and a much better sound than the last super expensive and plasticky Bose.  ...  "

" ...  Wow, the sound I expected would be fantastic, better than my three other over-ear and in-ear sets except Sennheiser, but the noise cancelling is amazing for a product so light and mobile as this.  ...  "

" ...  The build quality is excellent. ... The case overall is a sturdy plastic with a nice matte feel and is light weight which will be great for travel despite being bigger than the AirPods case. ... Another thing I appreciate is how they give you 6 additional sets of earbud tips in order to allow you to find your perfect, personal fit. ... In terms of looks, I find it to be a classy look. ... It definitely doesn't look bulky, (like an oversized bug sitting in your ear) and it feels light weight, being overall comfortable. ... There is definitely a punch you will feel greater than the AirPods. ... However, given the obvious size difference in consideration, these earbuds are a delight.  ...  "
