Product Description

The HA NC80 is a dual-mode noise cancelling headset designed to provide sound isolation while you listen to your favourite tracks. Its noise cancelling function blocks up to 75% of ambient sound, and lets you choose between two modes according to the noise level of your environment. The HA NC80's 30 mm neodymium driver unit guarantees quality sound, while its soft headband provides comfort during prolonged use. The HA NC80 can be folded up for easy transport and used during flights thanks to its 2-plug adapter!

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.

Features:

Up to 75% noise reduction (more than 12dB at 300Hz).
Dual noise cancel mode - "wide" and "low".
Flat foldable design.
Powerful neodymium 30mm driver unit.
Frequency Response: 10 - 22,000 Hz.
Sensitivity: 103dB/1mW (when ON),105dB/1mW (when OFF).

Cord Length: 4.9 ft.
Gold plated 3.5 mm plug.
Power supply: AAA battery x 1 (included).

we found the earphones comfortable, the sound for watching a film during the flight was good, they do block out some of the aircraft noise and a large amount of surrounding noise, so all in all we are happy with the product.
they are not as good as the equivalent BOSE earphones but then, they are not as expensive either.
unfortunately, the description did not mention that the pack includes aircraft adapters so we unnecessarily purchased a set of those separately.

I bought these headphones because of upcoming 7 hr charter flight to Canada. Recent experience of freebie headphones on long haul was very unsatisfactory. The JVC HA-NC80 - Noise Cancelling Foldable Headphones worked very well, reducing the aircraft noise down to a very low level. There was some residual noise, but it was not intrusive. Audio from the movie sound track was very clear, as was music from the audio channels.

Included was a good quality adapter (Would have cost nearly £5 at airport) for aircraft seats with two pin socket.

The electronics store at Gatwick was selling these headphones at a significantly higher price. This Amazon purchase goes down as one of the best ever.

I've taken to using the bus on a 35 mile journey into town in an attempt to reduce my carbon footprint! It's pretty boring sitting for up to an hour and half on the journey each way and so I listen to pod-casts. However, the rattles and clatters of the bus as it hurtles through the countryside (made worse by all the potholes following two bad winters) makes audibility of speech difficult at times using conventional ear-buds. I'd found that over-the-ear headphones were a bit better and reckoned that these noise-cancelling ones might be even better. I've tested them on a return journey of 70 miles and am convinced that they improved audibility as they most definitely cut down the ambient noise. I tested them with noise-cancelling turned on and off and found the headphones were quite good at reducing extraneous noise even when off, but were even better with the active noise cancelling switched on. I compared the two noise cancelling options: "wide" and "low" and, for my hearing on a bus, wide was marginally better at reducing interfering noise. The sound quality is good, at least for speech.
The headphones are quite bulky, but fold into a more compact flat shape that fits in the pouch provided. The ear muffs are comfortable to wear. There's a lot of cable but I had it tamed in a Belkin iPOD EARBUD CLIP * CBL MNGMNT; BLACK. The two switches on the right-earpiece are rather small and I found I had to take off the headphones to make sure I was switching the correct one.
Occasionally the left earphone picked up interference and I don't know if it was some electronic transmission to the bus or my iPhone being too near, but it wasn't a major problem.

They may not be Bose, but these headphones offer really good noise reduction for the price. Nice carry pouch too.
They're great for general use, but really come into their own on flights. I wouldn't go back to using standard headphones on a flight having experienced the joy of noise reduction.
This is our second set, having been really impressed with the first set we bought for our teenage son a year ago. His are still in full working condition so they must be pretty robust too.

used these on the plane several times, used in the home as well, the only thing is after several hours your ears start to get a bit warm, but, great price,delivered prompt, the only thing better is "Bose"

Good build quality, and good non boomy sound quality, especially for the price these do well on sound.

Noise reduction at this price/range level is basic, and whilst it does do SOME REDUCTION , it is about 25% as effective as top of the range, if you want strong noise reduction you need to be looking at £ 150 + phones, like Audio Technica or BOSE or Sony 5000 model.

If you want close to audiophile sound and good NR, then look at Sennheiser PCX350 / 450 , these offer the best sound for this type of phone, however NOT the best noise reduction, again Bose / AT / Sony offer the best NR without any shadow of a doubt. ( My personal Favourite is Audio Technica 7 , NR as good as BOSE , but better sound quality ( less artificial ) and cost < 50% of BOSE price. )

Having head BOSE / Audio Technica , I can safely say these are no where near as good, neither in sound quality of noise reduction, however, they still have their purposes, and for a low cost NR phone they are much better than the non branded alternatives.

If you want to spend a bit more, the Goldring NS1000 phones are better for NR.

If you can spend around £ 150 the Audio Technica / Sony are unbeatable for NR and high end sound.

Conclusion: These JVCs are ok, not bad, offer a little NR and no problem with audio quality.....for the price, they are decent and much better than not having a NR phone at all.....

To sum up, these are 75% of BOSE quality, for 15% of the price.
