They also work at reducing noise on trains, in the office etc. if you really want to drown out the peripheral sounds. My office is very noisey with fans, computers, etc. so I put these on and even at half volume I can't hear my phone ring.
Altogether a great buy, the only thing is that the detachable soft ear loop's can fall off (they are meant to but you can lose them) but this is a very minor problem, if a problem at all.
There's a lot of feedback about there being not much bass from these headphones. As with all earbuds of this type, you really do need to make sure that they're fitted into your ear properly, especially with these ones.
The earbuds aren't the most comfortable I've ever had, but I use them daily for about 4-5 hours without too much difficulty. My main problem comes from the noise cancelling unit, which, because it has a battery in there can be a little heavy when I forget to clip it to my shirt. The wire from the headphone also works best when you hook it over the top of your ear and around the back, you even get a pair of clips in the box to make this easier.
When you fit these into your ears correctly, they do a really god job of isolating a lot of external sound. Without the noise cancelling turned on, they do a good job of blocking out quite a lot of office background noise. When you turn the noise cancelling on it takes out a little bit more of the background noise, it also seems to add a bit more to the bass and treble, which is nice. The noise cancelling did an especially good job on a car journey, where a lot of the background noise was cut right down. This meant that I could listen to my podcasts at a much lower volume (better for my ears in the long run!)
I also like that the noise cancelling unit has a 'monitor' button. When you have noise cancelling on, and press the button, it will mute whatever you're listening to, and turn off the noise cancelling. This is handy when someone is trying to talk to you as is means you can hear them without having to hook an earpiece out. The battery (supplied in the box) has lasted for a couple of weeks of daily use and is still going. It's good to know that you can use the headphones without a battery if you don't need noise cancelling on.
The jack plug stands out a little way and has a right angle bend in it (well almost right angle) this means it does stand out a little way, which might not be so great if you're trying to keep it plugged in while it's in a pocket, but what I did like is that the jack plug is narrow enough at the end to allow me to plug in into my phone, which has a chunky case.
For the money I paid, I can't really fault these headphones.
I imagine some people are struggling to get the exact right fit in their ears. I had quite a struggle to find the right fit, and when the fit wasn't quite right, the noise cancelling and the base were bad. JVC aren't helping by not supplying Ear Bud spares or pointers to third party alternatives. I think the weak point is the Ear Buds.
They can be worn under Motorcycle Helmets, but they're too quiet for safe use in other areas. The noise Monitor button isn't much use in my opinion, so you'll be obliged to remove the ear buds if you want to hear properly.
Overall the sound is not bad, but I've heard better from cheap ear phones. I'm happy with the purchase because they were cheap and they fit under my helmet, but next time I'll go for Passive Noise isolation Ear Buds, which are more suitable for my small ear canals.
