Digital Noise Canceling Technology

Immerse yourself in music with a more precise method for noise canceling. Reducing up to 98.2% of ambient noise, the NC200D allows you to listen to only what you want to hear-great music in a peaceful environment.

How it Works

The MDR-NC200D headphones have an inside microphone on each earpiece that captures the exterior sound waves and works together with internal circuitry to create an opposite sound wave. Ambient sound is reduced by synthesizing with a sound in the opposite phase produced by the noise canceling circuit resulting in rich sounds and optimal noise canceling for a more enjoyable listening environment.

Intelligent Auto-Selection

Experience noise canceling optimization with the Artificial Intelligence button. Because not all ambient noise is the same, when pressed, the Artificial Intelligence button will automatically select the optimal noise canceling mode based on intelligent analysis of environmental ambient noise.

Noise canceling intelligence that is optimized for your environment

Monitor Button Stay aware of your surroundings by using the monitor button to listen to announcements, flight attendants, or any other external sound without taking the headphones off.

Passive Listening Enjoy audio listening even when the power is turned off. You can save the battery if you are already in a quiet environment, or should your battery run out mid-flight and do not have a spare, you will still be able to listen to your music without the noise canceling activated.

Long Battery Life Experience your music longer with just one AAA battery. Compact and highly portable, the NC200D headphones are ready to last up to 22 hours of noise-free listening enjoyment.
