Last Week's Most Interesting

Sony announced several ANC (Active Noise Canceling) headphones last week and the one that caught my eyes is their latest flagship ANC IEM called MDR-NC300D. It features an selectable 'artificial intelligent' controlled NC circuit that claims to do a better job than all ANC IEM out there. The fact is, most (if not all) ANC IEM in the current market sound very uninspiring. What interesting about the NC300D is the spec of the transducer - it closely resembles Sony current flagship IEM, MDR-EX700. If it indeed is sharing EX700's transducer, then perhaps NC300D won't sound half bad. Of course, its sound quality still remains to be judged. MSRP in Japan is just over US$310, you should expect more when it hits the international market.

Oh, by the way, doesn't it looks gorgeous?
