JVC HANC250 (Black) review: JVC HANC250 (Black)


JVC has built a reasonable reputation for producing inexpensive noise-canceling headphones , and those 'phones have done well in terms of sound quality. Still, there's nothing wrong with taking a step up in the world, which is exactly what JVC is doing...

The JVC HA-NC250 Noise Canceling Headphones are comfortable and offer good sound quality, including tight bass response. The headphones work with or without the noise-cancellation feature activated. JVC includes handy accessories such as a compact,...

The cable that comes with the JVC HA-NC250 is too short for nonportable use.

The JVC HA-NC250 Noise Canceling Headphones make a great travel companion for those who demand quality sound. And they may not be cheap, but they seem that way next to the Bose QuietComfort 3.

This JVC headset will provide you with an excellent listening experience. They are capable of playing a wide range of sounds and can cancel up to 85 percent of ambient noise. Since they are lightweight, these noise-canceling headphones won't weigh your...

One battery lasts 50 hours

The design doesn't isolate noise as well as others

These headphones will give you long-lasting noise cancellation.

Consumer review by: eighteendumb (



For the average audiophile, it's an amazing set of headphones. With moderate use (mostly while working or doing homework), mine have lasted for 3 years and still going strong. I can't compare it to other like-priced headphones because I've never had to...

Fantastic sound and bass, with the noise-cancelling acting like a bass booster

Mostly comfortable, but more than 3 hours and my ear hurts a little

Failed in less than 6 months


I tried to get some kind of warranty information, but it seems like JVC does not provide an explicit warranty. It's too bad, it was a nice set of headphones, but now I'll be cautious before a buy another JVC product.

While it worked, it provide decent performance in a small package

It failed after only 8 hours of use. The noise cancellation feature started to fluctuate, so I replaced the battery. After several batteries, I had to admit that it was just broken. It works intermittently which too annoying to be useful

Good on sale


I picked these up from here for about 110.00 total, well worth it. At 195 i'd cough up the extra dollars for something that fits better/more comfortably.

Great sound, Good noise cancelling. Even without noise cancelling on they still sound pretty good. Noise cancelling is robust, took them on a plane and they really helped with the ambient plane noises

Ear Fatigue, a bit of cut out if jostling too much with noise cancelling on ; My major gripe is that the pieces don't fit over your ears and rather press into them which can become uncomfortable after extended listening. In addition, I found that If I...

Best noise cancelling headphones


Well, OK, they are the only noise cancelling headphones I've used, but they are still the best ;) I bought these just before a 14 hour flight to New Zealand. I was extremely pleased with them the whole flight. The cheap battery that came with these...

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.
