Excerpt: Very good quality, I like them a lot. Even my 19 yr old daughter who only uses ear buds, turned a new leaf. She says she doesn't like "cheap" headphones. Now she always wanting to use mine. As, for noise cancelling, use only for "trains and planes". Otherwise, turn up the music, they will do some "noise cancelling.
Excerpt: Comfortable fit Good sound. Noise canceling? Not quite sure about that one. I was very excited when we went on vacation to bring these headphones on the plane To help keep out the sound of the engine. NOT! Even with a fresh battery they did Very little. But for every day ,Yes they're pretty good.
Excerpt: The sound on these headphones are great, I just wish that they were either wireless or bluetooth. I am currently using them on my computer and they are comfortable for hours and do a great job with canceling out the noise from others.
Excerpt: I tried several Ear bud type products hoping to get the sound that I was after, but gave up and went for this Noise Cancelling Headphone..and although it is larger than I would like, the sound is quite good for the money. I use it with my EVO 4G phone to listen on my communte into S.F. everyday on BART and it realy does cancel out the noise when going under the Bay in the tube.

Conclusion: Used during a 13 hour flight to hong kong. It blocked out most of the engine noise and gave superior sound from the in-flight movies. Pros: good sound quality; blocked most of engine noise; compact storage in hard cover 4 Con: Pressure on ears uncomfortable after 4 or 5 hours of continuous use
Summary: I use these headphones to listen to music through my computer at work. The sound is phenominal! The only con was the battery life, which was around 10 hours or so. But they even sound great without the Noise Cancelling feature.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: Read several online reviews and the JVC won out on value. I ordered a pair and I completely agree. The on-ear style headphones don't block the ambient noise as well, but the noise cancelling is still very good and the headphones are lighter/more comfortable, so you can sleep with them on. Bose, probably wins on overall performance, but you can't top the price/value/performance of the JVC headphones.
