Sony announced the MDR-NC200D digital noise cancelling over-the-ear headphones which reduce up to 98.2% of ambient noise for travelers on an airplane or a train. And because there are different types of noise in these types of settings, Sony's Artificial Intelligence Noise Cancelling technology automatically selects the appropriate noise cancellation with the press of a button. In other words, it knows the type of noise it must eliminate and does it all by itself; perfect for full enjoyment of the user's favorite music or movies in a noise-free environment. Peace and quiet can also be achieved without music and movies as users can remove the detachable cord and still enjoy the noise canceling feature. And since the headphones are both active and passive, users can also listen to music without the noise cancelling feature.
The unique two-way folding design makes for a very compact solution, easily fitting into your carry-on luggage or purse, while the long AAA battery life of up to 22 hours makes these headphones a great travel companion, providing hours of worry free listening pleasure.
The MDR-NC200D headphones utilize 40mm driver units for wide frequency response, while the monitor switch allows the user to hear what's going on around them. Users can also enjoy the noise canceling feature without music or movies. A digital equalizer with full digital amplification provides authentic sound reproduction for rich, natural audio while on the move. Included with the headphones are a semi-hard carrying case, an in-flight plug adaptor, AAA battery and a convenient detachable cord.

The Sony MDR-NC200D headphones will be available September 2011 for about $200.
