Features and Specifications
The JVC HA-NC260 headphones ship with a formed carry case that holds the headphones and the accessories for travel. The accessories include a 4.6-foot removable cord and an extension cord adding a few more feet of room if needed. The headphones fold flat and ship with an airline adapter and an adapter for full size headphone ports.

In Use
The JVC HA-NC260 are a nice looking set of headphones with a black design with silver accents. They are larger than most of the headphones that I have tested with over-the-ear ear cups that are padded well. The big feature of the JVC HA-NC260 is the noise cancellation feature. You can turn noise cancellation on and off with a switch on the right ear cup. The noise cancellation feature is powered by a single AAA battery that is included and plugs in behind the ear cup.

With the headphones on in my office, I would hear the fan from my computer spinning away. That hum from the fans really grates on my nerves some days. Wearing the headset without any music playing I flipped the noise cancellation switch on and the hum from the fans disappeared. I am very impressed with the noise cancellation capability of these headphones.

With music playing from my iPhone, I could hear some of the background noise in the room like the fans from my computer without the noise cancellation feature on. Flick the switch to turn on the noise cancellation and the background sounds were gone and the bass from my Ludacris How Low test track became much deeper and the track overall was much more rich sounding.

These headphones have great bass with the noise cancellation on. Listening with it off makes the bass flat and the track over all much less nuanced than with noise cancellation on. The ear cups are very well padded and comfortable to wear for extended use. The headphones have no volume controls inline so you have to control the volume with whatever device you are playing music on.

The cable is completely removable from the JVC HA-NC260 headphones for compact storage as well. This is a very well build set of headphones with the sole downside being that they are expensive at a MSRP of $199.99. Still, if you are driven crazy by the noise around you while you try to work or listen to your music $200 is probably money well spent.




  • Awesome noise cancellation
  • Great bass
  • Comfortable


  • Expensive

The JVC HA-NC260 headphones are great and the only downside to these things is the price. If you have $200 and want a good set of headphones with great noise cancellation features, these headphones are highly recommended.
