Hello music, bye-bye noise – audio enjoyment with noise-cancelling headphones

After a long and busy day at the office, all you want to do on your way home from work is enjoy a few quiet minutes and listen to music – but the noise of the train or bus engine and the chatting of fellow commuters is too loud to ignore. What to do? Turning the volume up as much as possible is an option – but a rather unhealthy one.

My advice: Try noise-cancelling headphones. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, they filter out unwanted ambient sounds when you’re listening to music. This also comes in handy if you’re working in a loud open-plan office and need to concentrate.

So what is noise cancelling?

Noise cancelling stands for the reduction of sound emissions. A distinction is made between active and passive noise control: passive noise cancelling relies on soundproofing, i.e. closing your ears or using in-ear headphones while active noise control (ANC) is a method of suppressing unwanted ambient sound, which helps you listen to music in as pure a form as possible and without background noise.

Noise-cancelling headphones are available both as in-ear and on/over-ear models. In-ear models are usually a little weaker in filtering out noise, but are better suited to do sports. They’re available with or without cables.

Who needs noise-cancelling headphones?

Noise-cancelling headphones are a blessing for the daily commute to work and on flights. They’re excellent at filter out monotonous ambient noises – if you’re hoping not to hear any noises at all, I have to disappoint you. The efficiency of noise cancellation depends on the frequency of the noise, not its intensity. In other words, you’ll still hear the office phone ring, but it will sound muted.

Die Sennheiser PXC 550 sind die besten NC Kopfhörer die ich je hatte - inkl. Übertragung mit dem aptX -Codec.
