JVC aims for headphone high-end

updated 10:05 am EDT, Fri July 13, 2007


The American branch of JVC has announced a new pair of high-end headphones, the HA-NC250s. A noise-cancelling set, the 250s continuously monitor cancellation for feedback, and are thus able to kill 85 percent of outside sound. To improve this further, the earpieces have padding and a doubled housing structure to create isolation. For extra comfort the padding is made of a memory foam that conforms itself to the wearer's shape.

Audio is produced by two 1.6-inch drivers, and the set can be used with or without noise cancelling switched on; a single AAA battery will power cancellation for approximately 50 hours. JVC plans to ship the 250s in early August at a cost of $200.

    JVC is mid-fi, at best.

    You want good 'phones? Look at Grado or Sennheiser.
