Question [Q] MDR NC31E - alternatives?

Is the Z2 compatible with any other noise cancelling earphones besides the MDR NC31E?
I picked up a pair of these seperately (with the option to return). They are pretty nice so far (still wanting to test in noisier env) but @ $70 +tax i feel like i want to compare other alternatives...

the MDR-NC31E's are special because they themselves aren't noise canceling, they just have built in microphones, and the Z2 does the noise cancellation. Other noise canceling headphones have the technology built into the headphones themselves, and are universally compatible as long as it has a 3.5mm jack.

Could be working on Headphones which have Stereo Microphone ... But I've never heard about Stereo Microphone Headsets before ...
This might only change if Sonys Technology gets copied by other Vendors ... Would be great, cause it makes this technology open to the masses and much cheaper, while you can still choose to use the same headphones without NC.

Bose quietcomfort 15 is the way to go if you live headphones with noise canceling.

unfortunately my Z2 doesn't comes with the noise cancelling headset and just the regular cheap low-quality headset, any alternatives or any specific models you can recommend?

Sony MH1C is a great headset if you don"t mind noise cancelling.

Thanks for the suggestion. I actually came across with this one. Hopefully the Mic will work. Its a Razer Hammerhead Pro In-ear Headset for Gaming and Music.
