Negligible Noise Cancellation

Lew, B&H Photo
23 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought these to replace the Sony version that I had been very satisfied with for years. The Sony's did a good job of suppressing street noise and airplane noise. Sometimes I would wear them all night long turned on, but not plugged in, in order to sleep on an airplane.
  • Pros: Comfortable
  • Cons: Too Much Ambient Noise

Not impressed

  • Summary: I've tried these in both a cube farm as well as a couple of long flights. The noise cancelling does reduce low droning noise, but does nothing to reduce anything else. I found I got more noise cancellation from the good fit, than from the active noise cancellation.
  • Pros: Good selection of ear pads, good fit, good sound.
  • Cons: Poor to non-existent noise cancelling.

Don't Do It

9 July 2014
  • Excerpt: The product did not meet my expectations or its advertised claims. I am deeply disappointed in the noise cancellation. There is barely any noise cancellation at all. In all honesty, I can hardly tell the difference between when it's on and when it's off.
  • Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Flimsy Construction, Poor Sound, Poor Value, Too Much Ambient Noise, Uncomfortable

  • Excerpt: The noise-reducing component of these headphones is very effective. I used them near a very loud, annoying aerobics class and I was able to hear what I was listening to very clearly. Sound quality is good.

  • Excerpt: I bought these to use when taking the bus to/from NYC for listening to audio books on a Sony Walkman and for use on airplane flights.I wanted something smaller than my Bose QC2 headphones and I really didn't want to spend the bucks on the Bose 20, especially with their non-replaceable battery.I...

Could not be more satisfied

  • Excerpt: I started with Sony noise canceling over the ear for the noise when flying and was happy with them. The problem was that they are big and take up a fair amount of space in the carry on. I bought the JVC in ear because they were so inexpensive and the reviews I could find on then were very positive.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Value, Great Noise Reduction, Great Sound, Lightweight, Long battery life
  • Cons: Cord Gets Tangled

Works wonderfully

  • Excerpt: Bought it to use on long international flight where I was in the rear, and the noisy part, of the plane. Absolutely worked spectacularly. Great suppression of plane noises, and excellent sound quality for listening to a movie on my tablet.

I like them

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: I use them while flying and am very pleased. They remove background noise very well. You can still hear other passenger voices but I have yet to find any noise cancelling headset able to remove that.
  • Cons: The cord could be a little longer but they are still very usable.

Very disappointed

17 November 2011
  • Excerpt: I bought this product to use at the gym to cancel out the music that I didn't enjoy and to listen to the music of my choice. It doesn't work. I verified with 2 other people (by having them use the equipment) that, in fact, it didn't cancel out any noise at all.
  • Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Flimsy Construction, Poor Sound, Poor Value, Too Much Ambient Noise

Great value for noise cancelling

  • Excerpt: I had purchased both the Sony equivalent earbuds and these and these earbuds fit way better in my ear, hence even better noise reduction. I use them when I mow the lawn and the mower sounds like is it a mower running down the block. Great investment!
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good Value, Lightweight
  • Cons: Cord Too Short
