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.
Excerpt: I bought this headphone in order to check out for myself to what extent airplane noise is reduced. Rather than buying one of the more expensive brands, I felt this headphone is a nice starting point to find out more. Well noise reduction is not as much as I had expected, so I am still doubtful whether or not to go for one of the more expensive ones. The headphone itself is very nice, comfortable and provides nice sound.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Value, Lightweight
Summary: All around for the price they are good, now I'm comparing to a Bose head set and these are good for the price, but it draws back. If I could I would ask JVC to acctully make them NOISE CANCELLING.
Pros: Well I must admit they are small and not something that smashes your ears very hard. Compact they are thats what I love.
Cons: So called noise reduction doesn't work as well as I thought. I got mine for $35. Base is almost none existant, also it takes a triple AAA battery...thats pretty poor. I would rather if it uses power from the jack. The cord seems to tangle at the neck a lot. The noise reduction does make the song quieter so keep it off unless you want to hear a SOFT song.
Summary: It's really a shame because for the money these are superb quality, but the plastic has a weak point and mine gave way. It's a design issue because no amount of super glue has redeemed them. :( I love these and still refuse to get rid of them, after I finish this review I might just duct tape them.. I've glued them will all kinds of superglue to no avail over the last 2 years. Buy them, but no kids or clumsy wives allowed..
Summary: My wife has the Bose headset but I decided buy these as its a good make and good value at £31.60 including delivery. I must say I was a bit disppointed. The sound quality sounded very tinny with poor bass compared to my wifes Bose and another Sony headset. I tested the noise cancelling feature in my bathroom with the extractor on and there was a noticable difference using low and wide modes.
Summary: As regular headphones go, these are fine - good sound quality, easy to transport due to the folding frame and the pouch that they come with. However, I've tested them in a variety of different environments - on a train, on the underground, and my workplace (where I'm surrounded by machines that churn away all day).
Summary: Nach den Bewertungen, die ich hier gelesen habe, hatte ich mir etwas mehr erwartet. Der Klang ist O.K.. Ich habe bis jetzt aber noch keinen Unterschied zwischen eingeschaltetem und ausgeschaltetem Noise Canceling feststellen können. Was die Optik angeht, würde ich sie nicht unbedingt auf der Straße tragen. Haben aufgesetzt eine seltsame Form.
Summary: Ich hab mir das Teil gekauft, um mit mehr Ruhe U-Bahn fahren zu können und da auch leise Musikstellen zu hören. Meine Erfahrungen: positiv: lässt sich schön platzsparend zusammenklappen und in der Tasche verstauen positiv: die Ohrpolster schließen recht dicht, also die passive Geräuschreduzierung ist gut bei der relativ kleinen Größe der Ohrpolster.
