The JVC headphones work fine -- good noise cancelling, nicely portable, high or low frequency selection. Headphones are a highly personal preference. These are "on ear" which is not cited on the product description. I prefer the "around ear" style over the "on ear" or 'in ear" styles for best noise control and sound fidelity. I like the in ear style for extended wear. I find the on ear style to be a bit more prone to sweating and ear discomfort (pressure on ear) during the length of a movie..
I really like the JVC headphones. However, I don't think they deliver as advertised. Eventhough they have a good sound and nice bass, they are not noise canceling. i've put a batter in them and switched to noise canceling and the sousnd is no different from regular mode. I think this is a fair value for the money but not the deal that I had expected.
These are sized for people with small ears, Even though my ears are small, these rub and annoy my skin. so after wearing for an hour my ears get sore. I used cloth covers from other headset and it feels better for extended use. Sound quality is excellent. Band across top of head is great for comfort ! Love the way these fold up to store, or can be worn around the neck until needed.
The headphones were exactly as advertised. Deliver was prompt. My only negative point is that they did not cancel out all of the outside noise. I purchased them to use in a special education classroom where I needed to be able to tune out all extraneous noise. If it were not for my intended use, I would highly recommend this product. PA
