Sound quality was very good.

I have an average sized head and ears, and found the fit much too tight and the ear pads too small.

Sound is good, noise cancelling is good.

There are a few things about these earphones that need mention right up front, because they are so very well done.

1. Most noise cancelling headphones have a bulky battery pack in line on the headphone wire. These DO NOT, which means the wire is small and free of things to catch on airplane handrests and such. This is great.

2. Many noise cancelling headphones have a constantly connected cord, or allow the cord to be removed if you only want noise cancelling. With this, the cord rewinds into the left earpiece. This is again, extremely well thought out. If you just want noice cancelling, rewind the cord up. It's easy and since it's attached, you can't forget and leave the cord on the plane or at home. This is great.

3. It runs on a single AAA battery, which resides in the right earpiece, again nothing external to snag on anything.

4. They fold up nicely for travel.

5. Noise reduction works very well. I even use them at my office to block out the white noise and fans of my building.

6. Audio quality is fairly good, nice rich tones but a little lacking on bass. I enjoyed my videos and music with them very much. An audiophile might be dissappointed, but if you're using noise reduction in the first place, you probably are in a noisy environment where you can't appreciate perfect audio anyway. All in all, the sound is very good however.

All that is very good.

What's not so good. The headphones look like over the ear designs, and for the most part are. The earcups are actually very small and barely fit over your ear. I'm OK with that, and the padding is very soft.

I bought these to use with my Ipod, especially on long haul flights. They fold down to a compact size so are excellent for travel. Sound quality is excellent when listening to music. The full shell earphone is comfortable and the noise cancelling function cuts out a lot of low frequency sound. Priced in the middle of the range I think these are great value.

GOOD

- active noise reduction really helped in airport terminal and on plane when listening to music or the movie.

- the best passive sound reduction anywhere near this price

- fold up nicely. (If you in to ultra-small, then these are to big for you, as you can see from the pictures)

- retracting cord is great.

- sound was good, and even ear-to-ear.

- I could not hear any hiss in a noisy environement. If I turned on the noise-reduction in a quiet room I could hear the hiss at first. Tip: don't use noise reduction if it is already quiet ;-)

Not-as-good:

- After about 5 hours one of my ears were getting sore from the touch of the earphone, and my ears are fairly small. I was able to move the headphones around a little and make it a bit more comfortable. I think that after 7 hours almost any headphone would make my ears sore. If this worried me, then I would buy a second pair of noise-reduction earphones, tiny ear-bud ones, and switch off between the two before springing for the Bose. I also always carry those little foam ear plugs with me when travelling.

- After only a few hours, the un-padded over-the-head piece does feel hard and uncomfortable. I stuck a piece of my scarf under it and that was fine. I am going to play around with other possibilites now that I am home.

My top reason for choosing the JVC's was for the passive sound reduction. Active noise reduction is great and reduces the general low-frequency roar of terminals and planes. But if you are trying to sleep to music and a baby is squealing 2 seats away then you need passive noise reduction. I tested the Bose, and I did not think they were any better for passive noise reduction.

About a year ago, I switched from a commute by car to a commute via train and subway (from New Jersey to New York). I am an audiophile, so I wanted a good-sounding CD player/headphone combo. And since I damaged my hearing years ago with a Walkman that I played too loud (causing Tinnitus), I wanted as much noise isolation as possible. For various reasons, in-the-ear-canal ear buds don't work for me, so I set out to find a good pair of on or over the ear cans that offered good fidelity and a reduction in exterior noise. Note: I don't do reduced bit rates, so all of the comments refer to performance using standard "Red Book" CDs.

Although I started out with an iRiver CD player (which is a pretty good-sounding player), it was too picky about the CDs it would read, so I switched to the Sony D-NE320PSBLK Psyc player. This player reads almost all CDs, sounds OK, although the treble is somewhat rolled-off (but I actually prefer this when listening to headphones; it compensates for overly-bright CDs). It has great battery life and great features.

First, I tried the Sennheiser PXC-250, an on-ear portable design. Although neutral sounding, the Senns lacked good bass extension. Worse, the out-board noise cancelling module created a mess of tangled wires. After only three months of daily use, the wires went, and since everything is hard-wired, the Senns were now useless (quite a difference from my home headphones, Sennheiser 424X I bought new in 1976 and still work perfectly).

Next, I tried the Aiwa HP CN6. This is an open-air, on-the-ear design with electronic noise cancelling. The noise cancelling works well, and these cans sound fairly good. A little bright, but with extended, powerful bass and fairly neutral mids.
