Sony MDR-NC-13 & MDR-RF865, Noise cancelling and wide receiving

By Chris Cook - Mar 30, 2011

If you’re looking for a new set of headphones, here is a pair you might consider, depending on what type you’re looking for. We previously brought you news of Pioneer’s SE-NC31C-K noise cancelling headphones, now Sony has just announced their two new sets of headphones.

These are the MDR-NC-13 noise cancelling headphones and the MDR-RF865RK wide receiving wireless headphones and they will both cost you less than the Sony’s MDR-MN300D noise cancelling ear buds which are $300.

The new NC-13s promise to drown out approximately 87.4% of background noise and at $230 they are $70 cheaper than the NC300Ds, which drown out 99% of what’s going on in the background.

The RF865RK wireless headphones meanwhile are capable of playing audio from their dock as far as 100m away according to Sony and after a 3.5 hour charge will continue to play your music for as long as 25 hours.

The wireless headset has only just landed in the UK and for now does not have a price, while the NC-13 are available at Sony’s online store now which you can get to by clicking the link. You will also find full specs of the headphones.
