Moderate noise reduction

JRP, B&H Photo
20 November 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact
  • Cons: A Bit Fragile, Moderate Noise Reduction, Only Moderate Noise Recuc

Build quality and NC is questionable...

Samuel Lum, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • 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.

Terrible at cancelling noise

  • Excerpt: These headphones were priced really well but they do not do the trick. I had the Sony headphones and those worked much better. I can hear almost everything around me with these on. There is a switch that gives you two styles and they both sound the same.
  • Pros: Battery Life, Easy to Use, Comfortable
  • Cons: Performance, terrible at cancelling noise around you

  • Summary: This is my 3rd pair of NC headphones. The prior pair was a Sharper Image branded set (around $60 in 2000). I used these JVC HANC80 on a round trip between TX and FL recently. Here are my thoughts: Pros: Comfortable Fits and adjusts well Sound (frequency response) is decent Folds and stores to...

Poor noise reduction

A. C. Sweeney, Amazon
26 September 2012
  • Summary: I have to say the sound quality of the set is good for the price, however noise reduction is poor. I've had several pairs of "cheap" noice reduction headphones over the past 8 years, purchased in the $40 - $60 range. These don't cut it for noise reduction.

Noise Cancelling Hardly Worked

Chuck, B&H Photo
11 January 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: Cheap, Compact, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction, Mediocre Noise Cancelling, Uncomfortable

Noise canceling???

Praetorian, Amazon
12 September 2011
  • Summary: This is a true example of getting what you paid for. If you want a true portable noise cancelling product, please consider spending a few bucks more for the Sony MDR-NC40. The good: Comfortable for long hours of use. Acceptable sound quality. The bad: Somewhat bulky to be a portable item.

  • 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

Mr. Robert Proudfoot "siddick", Amazon
16 November 2013
  • 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.
