JVC NCX77 Earbuds

JVC today previewed its upcoming NCX77 earbuds for portable media players. The company's earpiece set eliminates the outside noise that frequently interferes with sound through a combination of active and passive noise reduction. In addition to using in-canal earpieces, which physically block outside sound, the NCX77's remote detects and actively removes as much as 20 percent of ambient sound before it ever reaches the wearer, according to JVC. The remote incorporates its own, separate remote control for adjusting volume beyond the attached source and can be selectively disabled to save power or provide an extra level of awareness of traffic and other potential threats during a walk. A single AAA battery should last for roughly 70 hours. The earphone and remote combination should be available in early February for open pricing in Japan. A North American release is possible but has not been mentioned.
