Product Description

With the new JVC HANC80 noise canceling headphone, now you can choose the most effective noise cancel mode for the circumstances. HANC80 offers both "wide" and "low" noise cancellation modes. The "wide" mode targets a wider frequency range than the "low" mode, and cancels the type of noise typically found in a commercial jet cabin. The "low" mode cancels a slightly narrower and lower frequency range, one associated with the noise generated by trains and buses. The HANC80 deliver up to 75% noise reduction, and also comes with fully padded closed earpieces which help to block ambient noise, and the padded soft touch headband ensure that they'll remain comfortable throughout a long listening. It also offers a flat foldable style so that they're easy to carry or pack, and comes with a carrying pouch and a dual-plug adapter.

Sound quality and comfort were good.

After some time, the band would press against the top of my head & cause discomfort.

The noise cancelling feature is not that great.

These noise cancelling headphones work quite well. They fit more over the ear, rather than around it like my Bose headphones, so they do not pysically block out the noise as well as the Bose. However, the noise cancelling is similar to the Bose headphones.

The JVC headphones sound good, are lighter and pack smaller than the Bose.

My experience with noise reducing earphones is with the JVC HANC100, which is an earlier, and fairly satisfactory headphone. I've been satisfied with it for about a year.

This, the JVC HANC80 noise cancelling headphone, is even better! The sound rendition is superb. And this model has two modes of noise reduction: low frequency, and a wider range for more typical noisy environments, e.g. office, library, shopping, home (when relatives visit), auto travel, bus, aircraft, well, you get the picture ...

I like the wide range. At home with airconditioner, fans, neigborhood sounds, jets above, radios blaring, dogs barking etc, the effect is comforting. Add some music from your iPod or radio earphone outlet and you find yourself in a (quiet) heaven, listening to a high quality of sound reproduction. I was impressed with the sound quality, and I've used earphones of various types for many years.

One must understand that these, or any, noise-reduction earphones are exactly that: they are NOT noise-CANCELLING! Silicone earplugs are the best you can do in that regard. Best noise reduction is in the very low frequencies (makes my Boston MBTA subway excursions bearable). The excellent sound quality is icing on the cake. Get real! This isn't Star Trek, merely the 21st century.

You don't need to spend $350 for that high priced brand! This is an excellent product.

Recommended.

Also look at the JVC HARX300 non-noisecancelling phones. They go over the ears, are very reasonably prices, have fantastic sound. Not designed to be easily transported (don't fold). I love them - have three, in each place in my home where I like to listen to music or TV.

Pretty good headphones for the price. I paid $30 for it. Sound quality and comfort were good. The only complaint is that the noise canceling feature doesn't seem to work very well. It's the typical white noise to cancel out the outside noise but it doesn't work as well as my other noise canceling headphone from Antec Lansing. One the plus side, the battery is located on the headphone so there are no additional controller like other cheap noise canceling headphones. Overall, I do like the style and sound quality for this headphone but I would not buy this if you require very good noise canceling.

I purchased the JVC HA-NC80 noise canceling headphones for watching movies on an iPod during air flights. My next flight won't be for a while; so out of curiosity and to the extent possible; I performed two tests of the headphone "noise canceling" capabilities in my home.

Test one was done in the bathroom using the ventilation fan as a noise source.

Test two was done in my living room with a tank-type vacuum cleaner as a noise source located far enough away to simulate the volume of jet engine noise.

In both tests, the headphones, when worn, DID cancel/reduce the exterior test noises. Most of the noise reduction simply came from the seal between the headphones and ears. I tested the electronic noise canceling using the on-off switch and the low/wide mode switch on the phones. The mode switch did not make an appreciable difference canceling either test noise. The on-off switch did produce a slightly more noticeable noise reduction, but more so from the vacuum cleaner than from the bathroom fan.

I would have to say, overall headphone noise reduction comes pretty close to the 75% advertised and is adequate for reducing jet engine noise sufficiently to comfortably hear the movie audio from an iPod. In all fairness, the real capabilities of the JVC headphones won't be realized until they are tested using a real jet engine noise source. It is possible that the headphones electronics are more accurately tuned to a jet engine's frequency. We shall see.

I've tested the mighty, high-priced Bose noise canceling headphones in a department store using their "jet engine" noise source from a speaker. Impressive! But, for my purposes, the low cost JVC phones should be more than adequate for me. The JVC headphone's sound quality, appearance, craftsmanship, and fold ability are excellent; I would recommend them.

I bought these headphones mainly to wear on the plane as the regular ipod/ipad earbuds don't seem to do a good enough job. I chose them based on reviews and price, and they are pretty cheap for noise cancelling.
In all, the noise cancelling component works pretty good. It certainly is noticeable and makes a big difference once you switch it off. If you want a pair of basic headphones that are good value and do what they are meant to, then look no further. Also come with a free airplane (2-pin) adaptor.
Im not convinced that the major brand noise-cancelling headphones are worth $200 more......

I bought these for a trip overseas. The noise cancelling was comparable to others I've tried at the lower price point for such headphones and worked well on plane and train trips. As with any noise cancelling it helped to drown out constant backgrounds noises like jet engines, etc. but not people talking right near me, which is what I expected. The sound quality was just fine for a casual listener like myself and the ability to fold them was nice for traveling.

All was well and good until about a month after I returned home from my trip (only 2 months after purchasing the headphones) and I went to use them for a subway ride and there was no sound coming out of the right headphone. I tried changing the batteries and switching the noise cancelling on and off but nothing. At this price point (these are not just some 10 buck ear buds) a set of headphones should most definitely last longer then 2 months of very light use (heck I didn't use them for a month after my trip!) Now I am going overseas again and I have to buy a new pair but I guarantee they won't be these!
