JVC Introduces Innovative Dual-Mode Noise Canceling Headphones


Selectable modes tailor noise cancellation for different environments.

WAYNE, NJ, November 27, 2006 – JVC now offers an alternative to the “one size fits all” approach to noise canceling headphones with the introduction of a dual-mode model that allows users to choose the mode that best suits the situation.

JVC’s new modestly-priced HA-NC80 headphones deliver up to 75 percent noise reduction. But rather than treat all listening situations alike, JVC recognized that the nature of background noise varies from one environment to another, and so developed dual-mode noise canceling circuitry so the user can choose the most effective mode for the circumstances. In addition, to help block ambient noise the headphones feature fully padded, closed earpieces.

The HA-NC80 offers both “wide” and “low” noise cancellation modes. The “wide” mode targets a wider frequency range than the “low” mode, and cancels the type of noise typically found in a commercial jet cabin. The “low” mode cancels a slightly narrower and lower frequency range, one associated with the noise generated by trains and buses. In addition, the headphones can be used with noise cancellation turned off.

The HA-NC80 headphones are ideally suited for travel. They fold flat so that they’re easy to carry or pack, and they come with a carrying pouch and a dual-plug adapter to they can be plugged into a commercial airplane’s entertainment system. In addition, the padded earpieces and headband ensure that they’ll remain comfortable throughout a long flight.

The HA-NC80 uses a single AAA battery, has a 4.9-foot cord and weighs less than six ounces. They will be available in December and carry a suggested retail price of $59.95.
