Don't Do It

  • 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. When I contacted JVC directly, they never replied. Shoddy customer service on top of a shoddy product. I don't even want to use them for non-noise canceling because they are uncomfortable to wear.
  • 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.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight

Great Value Noise Cancelling headphones

27 May 2014
  • 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 first used them this weekend. They worked quite well going to/from NYC on a 2-hour ride each way. They eliminated a lot of the sound of the air conditioning system and road noise.

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'm not an audiophile, so I cannot comment on specific sound quality. I do know, however, that the outside noise was almost completely eliminated and I could easily enjoy my movie.

I like them

  • 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

  • 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.

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! The only shortcoming is the length of the cord from the noise cancelling electronics to the earbuds, but the sony was as bad so I was used to it.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good Value, Lightweight
  • Cons: Cord Too Short

scam

  • Pros: None. They work like standard ear buds, which you can get free when you buy an mp3 player.
  • Cons: Noise canceling doesn't work in any way shape or form.

Good ear buds at a fantastic price.

  • Summary: Initially impressed... they're not perfect, but they work well.
  • Pros: After opening the package, I immediately went and stood by my woodstove, with the external fan turned as high as it would go. The earbuds fit snuggly in my ear canal, blocking a good amount of noise on their own. I then cycled the power switch for the noise cancelling on, then off about 3 or 4 times. I'd say the electronic noise cancelling cut the noise level by 65-75%. Certainly a significant amount. Like many others, I will be using these for outdoor work, the major...
  • Cons: The compartment for the battery should be further up the cord, or further down. It has a clip on it, but it is too short to reach your beltline, so it hangs and tries to pull the earbuds out.

OK

  • Excerpt: Works fairly well, maybe cuts 1/2 the ambient noise from the airplane. The sound quality and build quality are mediocre.
