Sony's MDR-NC200D Noise-Canceling Headphones Help Kill the (External) NoiseS

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-canceling headphones, the MDR-NC200D, are made for someone like yourself.

Equipped with 40mm drivers and Sony's own digital canceling technology—which listens to the noise around you, then adjusts accordingly—these on-ear headphones feature digital equalization 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-canceling technology and in-flight adaptor.

The on-ear MDR-NC200D and in-ear MDR-NC100D will be available later this month for $200 and $150, respectively. [Sony]
