Sony MDR-1000X noise-canceling headphones offer the most responsive cancellation of ambient sound range on the market. Basically, they amplify your listening experience by eliminating the sounds around you. With three listening modes, 1000X gives you control over what you hear and when you hear it. Whether you want to completely eliminate background noise or only hear voice announcements in the airport, the choice is yours.

The headphones include Quick Attention mode that works with a gesture: simply place the palm of your hand on the outside of the ear cup to have a conversation with someone without removing the headset. Ambient Sound mode changes sound conditions so that you can enjoy listening to music, while still catching ambient sound. This allows you to stay engrossed, yet aware of every word being spoken around you.

But how do they sound? 1000X are also the first headphones to include DSEE HX, a built-in technology that scales up compressed music from any source to high-resolution audio quality. Bluetooth technology also lets you quickly connect to your phone or music player. These premium, plush padded headphones were designed for portability with up to 20 hours of battery life, a swivel folding structure and durable case that fits easily into any carry-on- making them, possibly, the best travel companion ever.
