I've been assessed and awarded for funding for various aids under my DSA including noise cancelling headphones to use with my computer, MP3 player etc to help me with my noise sensitivity.
Trouble is, I now have to make a decision about which I want - I've read various review sites which didn't help me because everyone says different things, plus these are in all probability written by NTs so I don't know how the issues raised apply to ASD issues. My biggest concern for both was reviewers who mention a 'humming' that accompanies the noise cancelling. Given that I find such noises incredibly difficult to cope with, are these going to cause more irritation than they solve?
The two models I have to decide between are:
- Sennheiser PXC 250
- Sony MDR-NC50
Does anyone have any experience of either (or know something that will help me more?)
