        Comments about JVC HA-NCX78 In-Ear Noise Cancelling Stereo Headphones:

        The product did not meet my expectations or its advertised claims.

        I am deeply disappointed in the noise cancellation. There is barely any noise
        cancellation at all. In all honesty, I can hardly tell the difference between when it's on and when it's off.

        When I contacted JVC directly, they never replied. Shoddy customer service on top of a shoddy product.

        I don't even want to use them for non-noise canceling because they are uncomfortable to wear.

          The noise-reducing component of these headphones is very effective. I used them near a very loud, annoying aerobics class and I was able to hear what I was listening to very clearly. Sound quality is good.

            I bought these to use when taking the bus to/from NYC for listening to audio books on a Sony Walkman and for use on airplane flights.I wanted something smaller than my Bose QC2 headphones and I really didn't want to spend the bucks on the Bose 20, especially with their non-replaceable battery.I first used them this weekend. They worked quite well going to/from NYC on a 2-hour ride each way. They eliminated a lot of the sound of the air conditioning system and road noise. They worked so well for the price that I bought a second one in the store for my wife to use. The audio is much better than with the earbuds we had been using. You can switch off the NC and use them as regular earbuds if the battery dies and the "monitor" switch is useful to shut off the sound temporarily.No reasonably priced (under $) set will completely shut out the sounds of people talking and other such noises.

              Bought it to use on long international flight where I was in the rear, and the noisy part, of the plane. Absolutely worked spectacularly. Great suppression of plane noises, and excellent sound quality for listening to a movie on my tablet. I'm not an audiophile, so I cannot comment on specific sound quality. I do know, however, that the outside noise was almost completely eliminated and I could easily enjoy my movie.

                  I bought this product to use at the gym to cancel out the music that I didn't enjoy and to listen to the music of my choice. It doesn't work. I verified with 2 other people (by having them use the equipment) that, in fact, it didn't cancel out any noise at all.

                  I had purchased both the Sony equivalent earbuds and these and these earbuds fit way better in my ear, hence even better noise reduction. I use them when I mow the lawn and the mower sounds like is it a mower running down the block. Great investment! The only shortcoming is the length of the cord from the noise cancelling electronics to the earbuds, but the sony was as bad so I was used to it.

                  Works fairly well, maybe cuts 1/2 the ambient noise from the airplane. The sound quality and build quality are mediocre.

                    I have a pair of Sony noise canceling ear buds. I bought these for my wife. They work better than my Sonys! Like all earbuds you have to make sure the are well seated in your ear.
                    As with all nose canceling systems they only deal with the hum and constant drone sound. Very happy
