Sony MDR-100ABN h.ear on Wireless NC headphones review: Silly name, serious noise-cancelling

 

Top-end Sony MDR headphones of recent years have offered a fantastic range of over-ear and on-ear products with leading audio. So when we received the new Sony MDR-100ABN wireless noise-cancelling headphones we were rather excited about using them on...

Decent noise-cancelling ability, sound fine when active, comfier to wear than earlier MDR models

Passive quality is poor, plasticky look and feel, expensive for what they are, not class-leading sound like earlier MDR models

With the battery charged, power on, volume up high and noise-cancelling activated the h.ear on Wireless NC MDR-100ABN headphones are at their best. In this situation the output is solid, albeit not class-leading and not of the quality of previous...

Sony H.ear On MDR-100ABN

 

Sony's latest headphones look great and, more importantly, sound great too

Exceptional comfort ; Long battery life ; Brilliant Hi-Res Audio functionality ; Stylish look

Lack of low-battery warning ; No touch controls ; Wireless Hi-Res Audio only available through LDAC devices

Stunning to look at and fantastic to listen to, the latest in the H.ear On range proves once again that Sony is up there with the best when it comes to manufacturing high-quality headphones.

Sony MDR-100ABN h.ear on Wireless

 

The Sony MDR-100ABN h.ear on Wireless headphones are made for the buyer who wants everything. They have the eye-catching looks of a set of street headphones, and also include wireless functionality and active noise cancellation.

Decent sound quality, great wireless, and noise cancellation that's comparable to that of the Bose QC25 make the Sony MDR-100ABN h.ear on Wireless and excellent option for just about anyone who lives or works in the city.

Sony h.ear MDR-100ABN Red

 

The headphone , which is also known as the MDR-1ABN, is very comfortable, although at 10.25 ounces or 290 grams it's a little heavier than Bose's QuietComfort 35 and isn't quite as comfortable as that model. But at least it's a close contest, and most...

The Sony H.ear On Wireless NC is a comfortable premium wireless Bluetooth headphone that sounds impressive for a Bluetooth headphone, performs well as a headset for making calls, and offers effective noise cancellation that adapts to your surroundings.

Headphones fold up but don't fold flat; when folded up in carrying case, package is slightly bulky; somewhat expensive.

Priced to compete with Bose's QuietComfort 35, the comfortable H.ear On Wireless NC offers impressive sound and noise canceling that make it a strong contender in the category.

Sony h.ear On Wireless NC (MDR-100ABN) Headphones Review

 

Immersive sound Fantastic sonic isolation and noise cancellation Strong sub-bass, competent mids and highs Entertaining sonic signature Comfortable design

A bit expensive Takes a long time to charge

Sony's product range has always been focused on the lower end, and buyers with a big budget are less likely to go for a brand that is perceived as 'mass market'. Products such as the h.ear On Wireless NC should go a long way in helping change that...

Sony h.ear on MDR-100ABN

 

Very comfortable, good sound and shuts out other noise.

I don't have blue tooth on my laptop so have to plug in headphones - would be good if the lead was slightly longer.
