Cheap, Cool Campus Tech

 

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Nobody has made a better pair of noise-cancellation headphones than Bose's Quiet Comfort 3. That said, the QC3 is ridiculously expensive, at $350. JVC recently unveiled the HA-NC80-J/-C (NC80), a pair of...

Two modes of noise cancellation decrease different types of ambient sound. Good audio quality. Cheap.

Uncomfortable. Low hum occurs when used with certain powered devices and noise cancellation is activated.

For a modest $40, these JVC headphones deliver decent noise cancellation plus good audio output.

JVC HA-NC80 review: JVC HA-NC80

 

JVC is a decent brand to consider if you're looking for noise-canceling headphones but are working with a limited budget. The company's HA-NC100 headphones , for example, are comfortable, offer solid sound quality, and can be found for less than $80...

The JVC HA-NC80 headphones are relatively inexpensive, and they include a dual-prong adapter for in-flight use, as well as a travel pouch.

The JVC HA-NC80's earcups are on the small side, making the headphones uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time. The noise-canceling feature affects only low frequency sound.

Frequent fliers operating on a tight budget should consider the JVC HA-NC80 Noise Canceling Headphones, but those with sensitive ears might want to steer clear.

JVC HA-NC80

 

These 'phones are a good, cheap option for those who want to eliminate some pesky background noise from their daily tune listening.

Relatively inexpensive ; Include a dual-prong adaptor for in-flight use ; Travel pouch supplied

Earcups are on the small side, making the extended wear uncomfortable ; Noise-cancelling feature affects only low frequency sound

On the sound-quality tip, the JVC HA-NC80s do a surprisingly decent job. I wouldn't call it fantastic, but when paired with a Creative Zen V Plus, the headphones provided clear highs and a balanced midrange. Even low-end response was decent, though...

Great product for the price

 

Works well

Over ear would be better than on ear

Good phones

 

There is some noise reduction, but it's not dramatic. External high frequencies are attenuated even when it's off by the closed design. You'll probably be able to store your mp3 player in the pouch along with the headphones. I'm hoping the cord will...

Sound is OK. Comfortable. Handy pouch. The cord is just the right length if you plan to stick your player in a pants pocket -- there's a little slack, but not enough to hang down by your knees

Cord is a bit stiff -- it sometimes has kinks that bunch up near my neck

If you are looking for noise reducing/canceling then skip these headphones. The noise canceling function doesn't work at all. You flick the switch and only the right side dims whatever you're listening to, but you can still hear everything going on in...

Nice headphones

 

Great overall headphones for the price.

Fit snuggly without that feeling like they are smashing your ears in. Good bass reproduction, unlike many on/over ear headphones I've owned. The travel bag they come with is a nice touch

The noise reduction function doesn't seem to work very well. I tested them in a living room with low-medium background noise, and could still hear everything going on around me. But, my expectations for the noise reduction feature might have been too high

Product Specifications

With the JVC HANC80 noise-canceling headphone, now you can choose the most effective noise cancel mode for the circumstances. HANC80 offers both "wide" and "low" noise cancellation modes. The "wide" mode targets a wider frequency range than the "low" mode, and cancels the type of noise typically found in a commercial jet cabin. The "low" mode cancels a slightly narrower and lower frequency range, one associated with the noise generated by trains and buses. The HANC80 deliver up to 75% noise reduction, and also comes with fully padded closed earpieces which help to block ambient noise, and the padded soft touch headband ensure that they'll remain comfortable throughout a long listening. It also offers a flat foldable style so that they're easy to carry or pack, and comes with a carrying pouch and a dual-plug adapter.
