JVC readies dual-mode, noise-cancelling headphones

JVC HA-NC80 Headphones

Expanding its line of noise-cancelling headphones, JVC today launched the HA-NC80, its first dual-mode earpieces. Instead of applying a single, broad noise-cancelling routine that may ignore external sounds that fall outside certain frequencies, the NC80 can be switched between two distinct modes: a broader mode that blocks the higher-pitched sounds common in passenger jets or on the street, and a narrow setting that focuses primarly on the low-end rumbles created by buses and trains. The result is a system that eliminates 75% of unwanted noise, JVC says.

Equally designed for travel are the headband, which folds flat for storage, and the audio cable, which incorporates a second plug for airline audio and video sources. The headphones can either be powered by a single AAA battery or have their noise-cancelling switched off to conserve energy. JVC plans to ship the NC80 in December for $60.
