The new JVC HA-NC250 combines outstanding sound quality with advanced noise-canceling and isolation technologies to provide a superior listening experience. 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 new 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 new headphone uses a 40mm neodymium driver in each earpiece. For comfort and portability, the 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 ¼-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. Battery life is rated at about 50 hours.

85% Noise Reduction

The HA-NC250’s noise cancellation circuitry includes feedback technology, which constant monitors extraneous background noise to eliminate up to 85 percent. For further isolation, JVC employs a double housing structure on each earpiece, providing an extra sound insulation layer. The headphones’ foam-cushioned ear pads add one last layer, not to mention they’re nice and comfortable for long listening sessions.

The headphones use a single 1.5-volt AAA battery for powering the noise cancellation circuitry, squeezing about 50 hours of use from a single battery.

Noise Reduction On/Off Switch

For convenience, the HA-NC250’s active noise cancellation can be switched off, enabling you to address someone speaking to you, hear announcements on a plane trip, etc.

Great Sound

Eliminating outside sounds is half the job. For the best possible sound quality, these headphone use a 40mm neodymium driver in each earpiece, for high sensitivity and a great frequency response.

Ultra-Portable

For comfort and portability, the HA-NC250s are one of the lightest headphones in their class, weighing just 5.3 ounces. The phones folds nice and flat, for toting around in the included slim carring case.

Also included are the four-foot detachable cord, airline dual plug adapter, and 1/4-inch plug adapter, for use with a wide range of audio and video components.

Excellent performance, comfortable, great value for money I travel fairly frequently on work and the long international flights were getting to me. I’d originally bought a Solitude Plane Quiet II headset which I was fairly happy with except for:1. Quite tight around the head, difficult to wear for long periods of time.2. Good sound quality, particularly bass, but an annoying hiss and missing treble and highs during audio playback.3. Fairly heavy owing to needing 2 AAA batteries.A colleague at work bought the JVCs and we did a comparison. Initially I was skeptical because my Solitudes were around the ear vs the JVCs which are over the ear. We went into a very noisy server room to do the test and I have to say the performance of the JVCs was astoundingly good.All three issues that I had with the Solitudes were absent.1. Extremely comfortable and light. Great build quality.2. Even better noise canceling performance despite the over the ear design. Even with the active noise cancellation off,…

Excellent for long plane flights I recently purchased the JVC HANC250 headphones after researching the options on the internet. The Bose were an obvious option, but the price could not be justified.I have always been thinking about buying noise cancelling headphones, and with a pending trip to Australia (from New York) I decided that now was the time.Pros:Great sound qualityExcellent Noise CancellingVery comfortableLong battery life (changed the battery 2X over a 48hr use period)Nice lookingExcellent valueCons:Changing the battery under the ear cup is not the best design, but not that hard to do eitherTips:1. Keep a couple extra batteries in the accessory pouch inside the headphone case2. Put a business card in the same pouch in case of lossUPDATE: Feb, 2009After owning the JVC HANC250 for a year they are still the best headset I have ever owned. I travel by plane almost every week, and they…
