Noise Cancelling Hardly Worked

  • Excerpt: These cans sound really good for its price but I guess I expected too much especially when it comes to noise cancelling. Structure: Frame is made of plastic and there are times I think i would break it while adjusting it. It also looks smaller than I expect it to be. Ear cushion is made of synthetic leather and it feels small and thin when you rest it on your ears. Cable length is good and feels durable.
  • Pros: Cheap, Compact, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction, Mediocre Noise Cancelling, Uncomfortable

  • Summary: Overall there are much better headphones for the price.
  • Pros: Very comfortable and did drown out a considerable amount of background noise. Treble was excellent and sounds was smooth.
  • Cons: Base was extremely lacking. They also fold very weird.

Nosie Cancelling Failure

  • Summary: I chose these phones for their noise cancelling claims so that I could enjoy music when flying and relieve the tedium of the flight. The noise cancelling is not evident and the constant droning is untouched. As headphones the sound quality is OK but I would have not have chosen these phones except for their NC claims.

Disappointing!

  • Summary: I bought these to replace my old noise-cancelling headphones, which still work after a few years but have some loose connections. Unfortunately these JVC headphones were pretty much unfit for purpose. With my old headphones you can immediately hear the difference (even in a quiet place when not listening to music) between 'noise cancellation on' and 'noise cancellation off'. With the JVC ones there was no discernible difference whatsoever, on either setting.

Noise cancelling works only in quiet areas :-)

  • Summary: The sound of these headphones is OK but the so called "noise cancellation" effect on the London underground (admittedly the most testing environment) is very limited as it is on an air plane. However, at under £30 this probably should be expected. Noise cancelling is definitely a misnomer and I am surprised that JVC claims these headphones reduce the noise level by 75%.
