What are noise cancelling headphones

Noise-cancelling headphones are headphones that reduce unwanted ambient sounds using active noise control. This is distinct from passive headphones which, if they reduce ambient sounds at all, use techniques such as soundproofing.

Why do you need noise cancelling headphones

Noise cancelling headphones makes it possible for you to listen to music clearly, filtering out other external sounds, so you don’t have to raise the volume excessively.

Great for travel, especially air travel. It can help you enjoy your flight or even sleep filtering out the plane engine noise, while you can still hear important announcement clearly and easily.

Noise cancelling headphones can improve listening enough to completely offset the effect of a distracting concurrent activity.

Noise cancelling headphones can also be used as sleeping aids. The use of these active and passive noise cancelling headphones helps to achieve better noise isolation from external sounds such as car honking or a snoring partner thus facilitating the ability to sleep.

How do noise cancelling headphones work

Noise cancelling headphones have built-in circuitry that emit out-of-phase sound waves to counteract exterior sound. These waves cancel out the incoming sound.
