JVC HA-W300RF Wireless Headphones – A product to avoid

Jan 5, 2006
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Cord free gaming and TV

Cons:Static and poor sound quality

The Bottom Line: I'm really disappointed that JVC would put their name on this product. My headset will go to the recycling center because I would not wish it on anyone.


I received the JVC headset as a gift but after using if for a while, I wonder if the there was a hidden message.

I really like the wireless feature to avoid the cord tangling up the desk while playing video games. And, I looked forward to watching action movies without disturbing the rest of the household.

The ear pads covers are so flimsy that with just modest use, the pads slip off the headset and they are a nuisance to reinstall. What I found was a failure of the material resulting in increasing frequency of of the pads coming off.

The transmitter is implemented with an analog tuner. I would have thought such tuners totally obsolete just from the customer dissatisfaction with fumbling around to get the transmitter and receiver tuned. Finding a clear frequency was not difficult.

I found that the receiver occasionally shuts off when sound is infrequent and the sound levels are low. I don’t know if this is intentional or if it is a flaw in my headset. I found the problem so annoying that I switched back to the wired headset.

The position of the transmitter and receive seem very critical. With even modest motion you are rewarded with static, probably a result of the analog interface. This failing should not have been much of problem for sitting at a computer, but even in that situation the headset failed to provide static-free sound.
