JVC HA-NCX78 overview

  • 1Description

The HA-NCX78 in-ear headphones from JVC provide high-quality sound and a multi-noise reduction system, allowing you to enjoy your music without the distractions of the outside world. The noise reduction system reduces ambient noise by up to 88%, and also reduces wind noise, cable friction noise, and electrical noise. Neodymium drivers provide a wide, clear frequency response.

The earpieces come with memory foam eartips and 3 sizes of soft silicone eartips, allowing you to find the best fit for comfort and noise isolation. The cable's earloop design provides extra stability by directing cables around the ears. The cable provides plenty of slack, and has a gold-plated 3.5mm mini plug to provide compatibility with a wide variety of electronic devices. A dual-prong airplane plug is included for connecting to in-flight entertainment systems. The headphones can operate for up to 50 hours on a single AAA battery, and a handy carrying pouch is included.

    JVC HA-NCX78 reviews

    HA-NCX78 In-Ear Noise Cancelling Stereo Headphones is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Negligible Noise Cancellation I bought these to replace the Sony version that I had been very satisfied with for years. The Sony's did a good job of suppressing street noise and airplane noise. Sometimes I would wear them all night long turned on, but not plugged in, in order to sleep on an airplane. When I first tried the NCX78 against street sounds I concluded they were broken. There was no sensible difference between the sound when on or off. I was going to return them for replacement but decided that JVC is a good name and I should give them another try. I contrived a test at my desk and could just barely conclude that they might be working a little. They are comfortable and reproduce sound well enough, but they are unsatisfactory at canceling noise.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great deal for the money 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

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonderfully 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for noise cancelling 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value Ordered these headphones and used them on a recent trip to Europe on both trans-Atlantic legs. The fit well thanks to the different sizes of eartips provided. Felt comfortable after hours of continuous use. The results were different on both (different types of planes). On the flight to Europe they blocked at least 75% of the ambient noise. On the return flight they blocked over 90%. For the price this is very good performance. I am totally satisfied with this purchase.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Do It 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value Noise Cancelling headphones 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Noise Cancelling I have used these headphones in various situations, including in an airport and on a plane. The claimed 88% noise cancelling has to be false. I'd be willing to bet that it is much closer to 0%. I had high hopes for this product and was utterly disappointed.
