Jvc noise cancelling ha-nc250 headphones. These are excellent value for money. I previously owned sennheiser headphones but have found these more comfortable and of superior quality for the money. Changing the battery is very simple (contrary to other reviews), it took about 3 seconds the first time without even reading the instructions. They are excellent for use on planes as they can be worn without using the lead just to block out the aircraft noise.
Got these headphones just after christmas, in preparation for plenty of flying this year. I’ve only used in ear headsets before, and although they did a good job i found they slipped out of my ear too regularly. I went on a business trip in january which was a 7 hour plane ride away and i was excited to try out my new headphones. When i put them on and switched on the noise cancelling, i thought i’d gone deaf they got rid of so much noisethe music and soundtrack quality coming out of these babies was excellent. Comfort wasn’t a problem, i kept them on for nearly the whole flight, and the same on the way back. And when i did take them off, i was amazed how noisy the flight was. Bonuses:if you run out of battery (which i haven’t yet) the headphones are still usable.
Jvc noise cancelling ha-nc250 headphones. I had a pair of bose qc2 phones and thought they were the box deluxe. The qc2s are a bit big and when the lead needed replacing i thought i’d give the nc250 phones a go. I must say that i am very impressed with them. You are able to use them with the noise cancelling switched off which is an advantage over the bose qc2s. With the nc switched on, these cool looking phones really come to life. Deep bass, good treble and a boost in volume that brings the sound on my sony mp3 player to a good level. The noise cancelling is as good as the qc2s and damps down the noisy deisel engine of the transit van i drive. They are just about small enough to wear outside without destroying your street cred and look good in metallic black. The lead is shorter than some phones but for mp3 player usage i think they’re fine.

“JVC Noise Cancelling HA-NC250 Headphones, i thought i’d gone deaf! These are BRILLIANT!!, Blocks aircraft noise with good overall sound quality”
Great, but not audiophile quality. These headphones are really really nice. I bought a pair for my girlfriend at first, and she was over the moon and said they were amazing. 🙂 i too, was staggered how good they were when i tried them on, so i went out and bought myself a pair as welli’ve had a few noise cancelling headphones in the past, but none of them have been nearly as powerful or as hiss free as these. In fact, there is virtually no hiss at all. The bass also sounds incredibly crisp compared to other noise cancelling headphones i’ve triedi say ‘virtually no hiss’, because there is just no hiss at all when you haven’t got any music playing through them, or when you’ve got the track paused, and for rock music, or pretty much any sort of music played by a band. But audiophile quality they are not, as i listen to a lot of classical music, (especially piano, as i play the piano) and one thing that i noticed as soon as i played piano music through them is that there seems to be an audible distortion of the very high frequency harmonics of the sound when noise cancelling is turned on, especially through the left ear-piecein fact, i sent mine back and got a replacement pair because of this, just in case, but the only difference in the new pair is that although they do distort the sound slightly less, they do it through both ear-pieces instead of just the left. Either you will notice it or you won’t. (my girlfriend hadn’t noticed at all until i had pointed it out and made her listen very carefully several times over)to be honest, you get used to the tiny bit of sound distortion, and when you compare it with the amount of white noise you get with other noise cancelling headphones, it’s hardly worth worrying about. I use the headphones on the train almost every day, and the improvement over listening with other headphones is staggeringly good.
Bought for use on long haul flights and train travel. Well made and not too bulky. Design is convenient, allowing cable mini-jack to detach from headset. As others have stated, you can use the headset simply to isolate yourself from ambient noise without listening to music. Carrying case is useful, storing spare battery, audio player and more. Battery lasted both ways across the atlantic and some hours of commuting before current started to fail. In my case this became apparent with buzzing, particularly on footfall, which might have been due to jarring the contacts (i remember a similar sign with a scanning receiver. ) a new battery cured the problem completely. Replacement is easy enough – once you are familiar with the procedure.
A great buy, great value but some helpfull hints. . First thing to say about these headphones is that they are a great buy for the money. If you want an all round great listening experience without spending the top end of £200 to £300 these are the headphones you want. Firstly the noise cancelling does work great but only on low frequency noise, which if researched is advertised, this means its great for car journeys, trains, plains and other modes of transport. This does mean that it won’t cut down on screaming people next to you. It will significantly quit them down though, and when listening to music you don’t really hear them. The next thing to add is the quality of the sound that these headphones produce is great. The bass is crisp and the notes really resonate well. A great peice of kit for a music lover. Another great feature is how you can listen to the headphones without the noise cancelling feature allowing you just to use them in your room or just generally.
