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
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.
Very good for the price--very good sound, noise cancelling qualities are just OK but it's hard to argue with the price.

Summary: I'm tired of earbuds. They break easily; they get tangled easily and, quite honestly, a lot of them don't provide very good sound (and those that do aren't always that durable). So I took the plunge and decided to buy a pair of inexpensive headphones. I looked through all the reviews and found more positive points than negative for the JVC HANC80 Noise-Cancelling Headphones.
Excerpt: Summary: Decent commuter cans if one can accept the concessions for the price point. I was looking for a commuting set of headphones to replace my imported Audio Technicas. For the price , the HA-NC80 is a decent set. Despite the bulky appearance, it is surprisingly comfortable. They provide some physical isolation to block out noise, though not as a good as a Dr. Dre Beats set. The sound quality is not as crystal clear as a decent set of Sennheisers (ex.
Summary: Comfortable, medium-weight headphones sound good, whether or not they are switched "on." When they're "on," they reduce a decent amount of the background noise. They don't cancel noise, but they do make things quieter. I like that they take AAA batteries; it's easy to find rechargeables and one battery will last most of a workweek at the office. I also like that, with or without batteries, these work as regular headphones.
Excerpt: I purchased the JVC HA-NC80 noise canceling headphones for watching movies on an iPod during air flights. My next flight won't be for a while; so out of curiosity and to the extent possible; I performed two tests of the headphone "noise canceling" capabilities in my home. Test one was done in the bathroom using the ventilation fan as a noise source.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: I changed this over one of Sony's more expensive Noise Cancelling headphones and the improvement in sound quality was very much noted. I consider the sound quality to be very good for the price and I found the headphones to be comfortable while blocking out a considerable amount of background noise (while commuting to and from work). Which leads me to the "Con" of this device. There is a noise cancelling feature controlled with a little switch.
Excerpt: Best I've found for the price. Use the noise canceling features when I walk on the beach. Only suggestion: add an in-line voliume control. Would be much less hassle than pulling out my I-Pod, unlocking it, and controlling the volume there.
