"Short battery life, unreliable, but nice when they work"


This product, when it works, works well for the money. It is hard to find inexpensive noise-canceling headphones, and these fit the bill for a regular business traveler with not the best hearing to begin with. That said, the short battery life made the...

Great set of accessories allows the headphones (and other peripherals) to be used in a variety of settings

Battery life is incredibly short -- I couldn't go on more than 3 trips without replacing them (although the AAA batteries fit easily within the case

"bad battery life and not reliable"


After less then 2 weeks of owning the headphones I had to call in for a replacement set because the noise isolation would work properly. The noise isolation would randomly turn on and off at a moments notice resulting in poor quality sound. I thought...

"Sound cuts out during movement or moderate volume"


I will not buy another pair of headphones without trying them out first. I don't listen to music at high volumes but when stationary the bass distorts. When walking, or travelling the sound cuts in and out. Unless yous listening to news casts at a...

Comes with a case

Walking or travelling on a train, plane, the sound cuts in and out! This is apparently a known issue. I listen primarily to Classic Rock and the bass breaks up constantly. They sound terrible

Ear pads too small, my ears started to hurt on longer flights.

Product Specifications

The HA-NC250's noise cancellation circuitry includes feedback technology that constantly monitors the noise cancellation process. As a result, the headphones eliminate up to 85 percent of extraneous background noise. To further block noise, the HA-NC250 offers two JVC innovations that help isolate the listener from outside sounds. First, each earpiece employs a double housing structure for an extra sound insulation layer. Second, JVC developed a technique for attaching the headphone's smooth memory foam cushioned ear pads to the housing that helps isolate background noise. The smooth pads also enhance comfort. These sound isolation features, for which patents have been applied, are especially important since the HA-NC250 can be used with the active noise cancellation switched off. For the best possible sound quality, the headphone uses a 40mm neodymium driver in each earpiece. For comfort and portability, the JVC HA-NC250 is one of the lightest headphones in its class, weighing just 5.3 ounces. It folds flat, and when folded is slimmer than most competing models. Included with the HA-NC250 are a slim carrying case, a four-foot detachable cord, airline dual plug adapter, and 0.25 inch plug adapter for use with many home audio and video components. The headphones use a single 1.5-volt AAA battery for powering the noise cancellation circuitry.
