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.

Fits and adjusts well
Sound (frequency response) is decent
Folds and stores to acceptable size
Noise cancellation is NOT 75%, but more like 40%
Cable is rigid (does not comfortably go where you want it to get it out of the way)
While they do work somewhat, the infiltrating noise of the plane was enough that I had to turn up my music player (same one I used with the previous pair) a couple more notches to drown it out to the previous level. Thus all in all, I was not satisfied with the amount of noise cancellation, enought to return them. I may try the JVC HANC250 next.
A bit of research resulted in the purchase of these headphones.
My initial impression was good: they look nice and feel comfortable. I tried using the noise-cancelling feature in a 'normal' situation - TV on in the background, general household noises etc, but I was unable to detect any noise reduction at all. This is hardly surprising considering the way these headphones work.
On the return plane journey it was a different matter. Whilst the plane's engine noise was still very audible, it was at a lower level. More importantly, the unpleasant and intrusive part of the audible spectrum, the nasty edge, the constant background noise(engine noise) was reduced.
The headphones themselves are 'on-ear' rather than 'in-ear'. The individual earphones are quite small and certainly don't cover the ears completely. I feel quite strongly that larger 'phones', ones that cover the ears more completely (rather like the FAR more expensive Bose headphones) would improve performance quite significantly.
The claim "Up to 75% noise reduction (more than 12dB at 300Hz)" is probably accurate. It's important to understand the ear's logarithmic response: a 50% reduction = 6db, a further 50% (total 75%) = another 6db, therefore 12db in total. That's the good news but a 50% / 6db reduction in power level is difficult for the human ear to detect so don't expect miracles. Having said that I'm quite happy with these headphones, they made 7 hour return flight far more comfortable than the outward journey.
A couple of points worth mentioning:
A) The headphones are supplied with an airline adaptor: single 3.5mm stereo jack plug > 2 x mono jack plugs
B) A single AAA battery (supplied) is needed to power the electronics in the headphones. I can't comment on battery life. If the battery fails the headphones still work but minus the noise-cancelling feature.
C) A red LED on one side of the headphone indicates they're switched on, in the low light levels of an overnight flight this is useful.
