I have been looking for some cheap noise cancelling headphones and these seem like the best price these have been at. Amazon selling at £30.83 with other sellers via Amazon at £25.10. Other than that the best online price still comes in at £22.99 via eBay and in many cases these are used or refurbished. Lowest Amazon price has been £22.65.

While they are not going to be the best noise cancelling headphones compared with the Boses of this world (depending upon the environment you are in and the Amazon reviews - 3.5 star average - being from amateur users right through to audiophiles!), for this price it's certainly worth a punt, particularly as these are from a reputable seller, come with 12-months warranty and are brand new, not refurbished. Argos listing also states that they come with a travel case but unsure as this not mentioned elsewhere.

Boost your listening experience and reduce unwanted ambient noise by up to 87.4 percent.
Great for commuting and travelling, the MDR-NC7 headphones easily fold for compact storage when travelling.

"Well, they’re not the worst headphones we’ve reviewed, but we’ll go out on a limb to say that you should probably reconsider if you find these on a shelf somewhere and feel like shelling out for them. The Sony MDR-NC7s massively underperform, and despite their claims to the contrary, don’t actually cancel more than 2dB of ambient noise. On top of that, they require batteries to give you subpar performance at a price that just isn’t really a good match for their quality."

worth a punt

The review would certainly fall into the audiophile category but worth considering. I guess the one thing to bear in mind would be that they were perhaps reviewing with the RRP in mind (£45-50). These will only be for occasional travelling use for me so I thought they are worth a try.
So for practical reasons, what is 2dB? A pin drop?
