What kind of headphones should I get for reading on buses and with people talking around me?

I need headphones that will block out outside noise like people talking, bus noise, TVs etc… Would noise-cancelling headphones or in-ear buds work best? How would they compare to just plain old ear-plugs? I have a decent sony pair of in-ear buds and ear plugs already, but not sure if noise-cancelling phones would work better

You’ll want noise-canceling headphones would work best. There are two basic types: over (or around) the ear, and on-ear, which are self-descriptive.

As an alternative, if your budget doesn’t allow for such headphones, you can invest in a pair of around-the-ear ear protection muffs at places like Home Depot and Lowes for about $ 20 or so, and put them over your ears after you’ve put your earbuds in. I’ve done that, and while it looks “weird,” it works like a charm.

    Overall quality sound, August 3, 2011

    Generally, hardware with SONY written on the side of it performs well. This is certainly the case here as well. The overall sound quality of this set is great.
    Deep bass, yet not too overpowering. Vocals sound clear…not too much hiss in the highs. The range of sound is good…nothing really over powers anything else. When I first started listening I was afraid that the mid-range was high. However, this was likely because of how use to my *awesome* Apple earbuds i was.
    Also, I listened to a pair of my friends dre beats solo phones. I would say that the sonys have a better overall sound…not the mention the price.
    With the sound quality these things produce, you’d expect to pay alot more. The low price is actually a little ridiculous for these headphones (but I’m certainly not complaining.)
    These aren’t really “noise canceling” headphones, but they do a good job of isolating general background noise.

    They are comfortable…i have a decent size head (cap size 7 3/8) and they’re not too tight.
    Love the red stripe on the right side for “red is right…”
    The white finish is very glossy and done well.

    **not really sure why they’re classified as “outdoor” headphones?

    Some people are pretty ridiculous.. I read some of the reviews about these headphones before buying them. People talking about the Hi’s, the mid’s, the low’s… are you kidding me? $14 for a set of headphones and you want to feel like Celine Dion herself is singing in your ear?.. get real. Here’s the truth. I am studying for the Florida Bar exam. Part of the studying requires me to hear extended hours of lecture.. and by extended I mean 3, 4 and 5 hours at a time with 10 min breaks. These headphones are comfy enough to do that. They are snug but so lightweight you can forget your wearing them. I also observe they reduce outside noise pretty well. Regarding the sound, it is clear. Sometimes it does sound the way something sounds from behind a closed door; a little distant- but not muffled. But, that could be me. So I rate 4 stars.

    Portable version of its older brother: Oh it delivers, May 17, 2011
    By 

    I’ve owned a pair of the sony mdr-v150 monitoring headphones since I started college (dude….06-07 what?!) and I still love em. Indestructible and with sound quality to rival all those skullcandies and ‘beats by dre’ the younguns frequent these days. But beyond that, the point of my review is to review these badboys. To keep it simple, they’re basically the smaller, lighter, and more portable friendly version of the v150 which is always a major plus. My only gripe with the v150 (if there were any at all) is the long cable and fair density that it has. Of course that didn’t stop me from taking it anywhere, I’m just glad I managed to grab the zx100’s for their portability factor.

    Specs: the box really speaks for itself and if you’ve ever tried the v150’s, you’re basically getting the same quality audio: clear, crisp, tons of range, and very balanced bass. I love good bass and these guys deliver without being overpowering. As some of the other reviews noted, very natural bass.

    The design is great: modern and a little bit more shapely for a modern look. I’m a little bummed they got rid of the swivel cups but that bummer was just about rectified by the outward rotation that allows them to lay a lot flatter (great for throwing in a bag or something). I actually prefer this over collapsible style that most earcup headphones approach portability with these days as laying it flat distributes the stress more evenly when pressed on. A little bigger when carrying around but that also means less chances to break it. Well done, sony.

    The color schemes are not too special: I got the white ones but they’re available in standard black too (duh). I was actually kinda bummed because like….an onyx gray would have been awesome….oh well. White stands out and looks pretty sharp.

    Anyway to sum it up, these guys are nice. And with a price tag similar to its high quality brother, they’re definitely a no brainer. I think any audiophile can enjoy these as much as any casual music nut. Sony does it again!
