Description
Listen to what you like, drown out the rest. Defend your listening experience from outside noise with an innovative design that – unlike previous noise canceling units – features dual microphones both inside and outside the earcup that work with the Digital Noise Canceling Engine in unison, keeping intrusive noises at bay. MDR-1RNC headphones automatically select the optimal noise canceling mode (for aircraft, train or office) based on intelligent analysis of environmental ambient noise. Simply turn them on and go. Get serious about sound with rigid, yet responsive 50mm liquid crystal polymer film diaphragms that provide the rigidity and internal loss necessary for balanced, highly accurate sound reproduction.

Great headphones
3 Star Review   By CyberCorn on Sony - Official Store - Dec 8, 2013   

The headphones it self is very good in my opinion, the sound its great and the nc is absolutely perfect in my opinion except when its windy or biking... but all nc headphones have that problem... The design is without dough perfect. I have to let you guys know. Some who wrote review also mentioned The headphones are REALLY sharp in the high frequency. (Kind of hurt while listening) So I set the equalizer on the 14K and above really low and it works great. But for the price of these headphones, its a shame that they set it so bright on the high end... Sry for the bad english, isnt my base language and kind of have exam tomorrow so dunt really have time xD

Best Sounding Headphone as a Noise Canceling area
4 Star Review   By Slim8452 on Sony - Official Store - Oct 14, 2013   

Bought this as special offer price(349+Tax) at metrotown Sony store. I was looking for NC headphones that sounds also good. I tried Beat Studio2, Bose QC15, 3 and I found them they are way too bassy for me. I am audiophile so I cares about sound quality a lot and when I listened MDR-1rnc, I was Stunned. I never listened NC headphone that sounds really good. They sound very natural and balanced. but There is quite big emphasize on high frequency area around 10khz. So some people will find it too bright or too aggressive. Try them before you buy because of these emphasized high frequency. NC works Good overall but when its windy day, NC function actually amplify wind noise. Therefore I recommend to use this headphone inside of train, air plain or inside of noisy building. You will find very anointed by wind noise if you use this on the road in windy day.

5 Star Review   By Sturmzinck on Sony - Official Store - Jan 3, 2013   

I got these the Sony head phones because I was tried of the cord on my ear buds getting in the way when I went to the gym, and even walking around my house. I use these head phones at the gym and they fit great. I don't feel like their going to fall off or worry about them getting in the way. The price is a little high but they are worth the price. If your in the market for new headphones I would say these will not let you down.

Great compromise between good sound and NC
4 Star Review   By spkg on Sony - Official Store - Nov 14, 2012   

This headset is ideal for someone who wants simply the best of both sound quality and noise cancellation beyond all else. however it comes at a price, literally and figuratively. The biggest draw back being the size and the weight, the NC500(600)D is already on the large side compared to most of its competitors, the 1RNC go even further, taking up an entire section of my travel bag. Another drawback is the "stylish" rods on the back of the ear piece, because the rods sticks out behind slightly, they actually hit the pillow when sleeping while face up, which adds a bit of uncomfortable pressure. On the other hand because the side is relatively flat and large, the 1RNC is better to sleep with on the side of the head then the NC500(600)D. The the biggest improvement has to be the fact that the 1RNC actually works as a regular headphone when the battery runs out, you have no idea how many times i had to use the cheap $2 headphone they give you one planes to watch the movie because the battery died. All in all and good upgrade from the NC500(600)D, but I just wished Sony did a few minor changes to the NC model to make it better suited for traveling purposes.
