JVC HA-NC100

 

JVC's HA-NC100 Noise Canceling Headphones have the substantial look and feel of pricier models, with large, thickly padded ear cups and a heavy-duty plastic frame. A single AAA battery--good for 50 hours, according to JVC--installs in one of the ear...

The JVC HA-NC100 Noise Canceling Headphones are inexpensive and feature comfortable ear cups, a convenient fold-up design, an autoretracting 5-foot cord, and solid sound quality. They also include a carrying case and an airplane adapter.

The noise-cancellation feature of the JVC HA-NC100 Noise Canceling Headphones affects only lower frequencies, plus the headphones are a bit weak on bass.

The cushy JVC HA-NC100 Noise Canceling headphones don't block out ambient noise entirely, but they do a good job of reducing it--and for an affordable price.

These noise cancelers aren't as compact as the AKGs, but they provide excellent noise reduction, with 20- to 30-dB reductions throughout most of the range. Passive noise reduction is effective in the higher end, and the active circuit does a good job...

Inexpensive ; Comfortable ear cups ; Convenient fold-up design ; Autoretracting 1.5-meter cord ; Solid sound quality

Noise-cancellation feature affects only lower frequencies ; A bit weak on bass

As for the headphones themselves, we found sound quality to be decent overall. Bass response seemed a little weak, and during quiet music passages, we could occasionally detect a bit of the hiss produced by the active circuit, though only in the right...

"Great features, lacks sound that fullsize junkies seek."

 

Bottom-line: They do the job, but if you like thumping bass and rich sound, you're not going to find them here.

It's a full size that's portable! It folds! The cord retracts! No more getting the cord tangled! It's noise canceling!

Where's the bass? Where's my symphony? these phones are awful at bringing out full ranges that full sized headphones are known to do. I was very disappointed.

"Great for the price"

 

I have a small head, so the fit is fine for me.. I use them with my IPOD when I walk they work just fine.. True test will be on airplane.. BTW: I can't afford BOSE, though they are sweet.

Possible issue w/retractable cord.. Need to be careful

"Great Sound at Great Price, but must sacrifice comfort."

 

I bought these headphones because of the overall value. The sound is great and it is really nice to have noise canceling. It is also nice to be able to retract the cord back into the headphones and fold-up when done using. My only complaint with these...

Sound, Price, Features.

Comfort- Headphones feel like clamp on ears that start to irritate after a while. Very top also has no cushion.

"Affordable Noise Cancelling"

 

The wind up cord is great. The lightweight and feel did not cause discomfort between Hawaii and Los Angles. You can hear people just fine(for those who think they have to yell just because you have headphones on)normally speaking. Did not hear the jet...

Cost, light weight

Wished it worked a little better
