JVC Adds To Headphones Line

7/13/2007 09:35:00 AM Eastern

Wayne, N.J. — JVC announced an addition to its line of noise-canceling headphones.

The new JVC HA-NC250 is billed by JVC as combining “outstanding sound quality with advanced noise-canceling and isolation technologies to provide a superior listening experience.”

The HA-NC250's noise-cancellation circuitry includes feedback technology that is designed to constantly monitors the noise-cancellation process. The headphones reportedly eliminate up to 85 percent of extraneous background noise.

To further block noise, each earpiece employs a double housing structure for an extra sound insulation layer. Also, JVC said it had developed a new technique for attaching the headphone's memory-foam-cushioned ear pads to the housing that helps isolate background noise.

The HA-NC250 can be used with the active noise cancellation switched off. They use a 40mm neodymium driver in each earpiece, and they weigh 5.3 ounces with the ability to fold flat.

Included with the HA-NC250 are a carrying case, a 4-foot detachable cord, airline dual-plug adapter and 0.25-inch plug adapter. The headphones use a AAA battery for powering the noise-cancellation circuitry. Battery life is rated at about 50 hour, said JVC.

The headphones are scheduled to be available in August for $199.
