Wayne, N.J. — JVC today announced the company’s first in-ear noise-canceling headphones, the HA-NCX77.
Engineered to cancel up to 80 percent of the background noise, the headphones feature additional isolation with a design meant to provide a secure fit and help seal out ambient sound.
The contoured canal design features an earpiece that's slightly angled, allowing a natural and secure fit that provides maximum sound isolation, the company said in a release. The ambient noise seal reportedly enables precise acoustic coupling to the eardrum, thereby lowering the volume required to achieve the full sonic impact.
For conversation or listening to announcements, sound can be muted using a switch on the power supply, which uses a single AAA battery. Battery life is approximately 70 hours, said JVC. A dual plug adapter for use on commercial aircraft and a soft case are both included.
The HA-NCX77 headphones are currently available at a suggested retail of $79.95.
