Excerpt: I ordered the HA-NC120 JVC noise canceling headphones at the same time. These do not come close to filtering out aircraft engine noise as the NC120. I advise spening the few extra $$ for the NC120. If price is a very important consideration, these do filter out some annoying noises and they do have good sound quality. They are similar in construction to the NC120 - both are somewhat fragile.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact
Cons: A Bit Fragile, Moderate Noise Reduction, Only Moderate Noise Recuc
Excerpt: These are compact and sound great, especially for the price. The noise cancelling feature works, but not as well as a pair of Sennheiser PXC 250 headphone that I have. Because these are on-ear headphone, they need to be positioned precisely to putting too much pressure on the ears.
Pros: Compact, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: The JVC HANC80 was brought before my plane flight, but unfortunately, when I opened the package, my hopes sunk for this headphone. The headphone felt cheap and flimsy, with little to no comfort and the earpads were very hard. Even so, I gave it a shot and barely noticed a difference in a quiet room. I literally kept turning it on and off to try to hear something. In the end, I gave up and returned the item.
Summary: I purchased the JVC HANC80 Noise Canceling Full Sized earphones because I gave my other ones to my daughter. These JVC HANC80 earphones are far more comfortable than any I have used before. My ears do not begin to ache immediately as they have in the past with other ear phones. I find that they also prevent somewhat the ambient noise of the surrounding environment, which I really like because I live in an area where the outside activity can be very intrusive.
Summary: When it comes to using a Headset, whether it's for music or for video games (not recommended for inter-action). Why spend a hundred dollars or more for clarity when you want privacy in your own space when it comes to listening to whatever pleases you. I choose JVC first and Sony second in this price range. Both have excellent qualities when it comes to sound.
Summary: I'm so happy knowing that Bose NC headphones were overly over-rated. Previously, I had two of them: 1st the Bose Quiet Comfort Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headset which has totally disfunctioned; and the 2nd one is later version Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphone (over the ears) which has broken down head brace assembly... inferior hardware plastic materials... I WAS TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED WITH THESE BOSE HEADPHONE PRODUCTS THAT I STILL HAVE!!!...
Excerpt: Headphones can fold up and lay flat and slide easily into a small satch provided in the package. Headphones come with airplane jack adapter, too. They are soft and padded at the ear, but hurt after approx.+3 hours of wear. There is also a battery provided by the manuf. for the noise cancelling feature, which I wouldn't think to use these headphones for.
Excerpt: I bought these to use when traveling, on airplanes, train, busses. So far I've just tried them around local higher noise level areas and the do cancel some of the noise. About what I would expect for the price these sell for. I'm still waiting to see how they do on an airplane while trying to watch a movie, so I can't say anything about that yet. They fit comfortably, they sound OK, and they do fold into a more compact bag to save space when traveling.
