Listening to music on your MP3 player with ear buds is one experience; a good set of noise cancelling headphones is a quantum leap in quality. But too often, these larger headphones lose in comfort what they gain in quality sound. The JVC headphones are extremely comfortable and bring a listening experience of exceptional quality.
