Noise cancelling headphones are exactly what their name suggests. Originally made for flyers and first introduced by Bose, these headphones are made to reduce constant noise and are a delight for our ears if you regularly travel. Of course they will perfectly help you too in any other noisy conditions. Let's take the example of the Bose QuietComfort 15.
Noise Cancelling is a concept created more than 20 years ago and Bose were the first to make headphones equiped with this technology. If Bose is a pioneer in the industry, many other have followed their tracks. The QuietComfort 15 is the latest product of this type nd equiped with this awesome technology. After 20 years of improvement the Bose noise redution is better thn ever headphones.
How it works ?
There are both microphones on the inside and outside of the earcups. The outside noise polarity is inverted and added back to the audio signal. You don't have to raise the volume to cover the noise, because an antinoise was generated.
The Bose QuietComfort 15 also had the cushion redesigned with new materials to reduce noise even more, but it also provides an ergonomic and comfortable ear fit.
Plus, it is also equiped with an active equalization. This ensures you get an optimal acoustic experience with a high audio performance. Bose likes to do the things right and provides the QuietComfort 15 with few accessories, such as the detachable audio cable, that means you could even wear the headphones just to reduce noise and not listen to music if you want !
In short, the Bose QuietComfort 15 is a no brainer for regular flyers and anyone working or living in noisy condition. Its comfortable design allows you to wear it during hours and still enjoy the music you're listening or movies you're watching. A must have.
