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. 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

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. I literally kept turning it on and off to try to hear something. In the end, I gave up and returned the item.

Returning for something better...

  • 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 acceptable size Cons: 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...

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. However if noise reduction isn't the primary purpose, these are fine.

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. 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

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. The noise canceling feature is horrible. Just throw away the battery and loose the weight.

  • 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. As headphones the sound quality is OK but I would have not have chosen these phones except for their NC claims.

Disappointing!

Erastus Rosemond, Amazon
30 October 2012
  • 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.
