Noise-cancelling headphones

Want to enjoy your music despite the noisy sounds around you? Turning up the volume doesn't work in many cases and can even be harmful to your hearing. Do you want to enjoy your favourite music without being disturbed by your surroundings? Noise-cancelling headphones will instantly solve that problem!

What are noise-cancelling headphones?

What exactly are noise-cancelling headphones? Noise-cancelling headphones are also called isolating headphones. They make sure that you hear sounds from your surroundings less (or not at all). Therefore, a pair of noise-cancelling headphones ensure a perfect music experience.

How do noise-cancelling headphones work?

Noise-cancelling does more than just suppress noise: it filters and muffles all surrounding sounds by means of an anti-sound. This anti-sound is produced based on the sound around you, which is picked up by microphones in the headphones. Then the sound is analyzed and distorted so that you are no longer disturbed by your surroundings. However, this does not mean that all headphones with a microphone automatically have noise-cancelling. It is a specific feature that is only added to certain models.

Why choose headphones with a noise-cancelling function?

You now know what noise-cancelling headphones can do, but should you choose headphones with or without noise-cancelling? That largely depends on your own preferences and use. We have listed the general advantages.

 Why choose headphones with a noise-cancelling function?

More listening pleasure

A big advantage of noise-cancelling headphones is that you can listen to your music undisturbed. Noise-cancelling completely muffles all environmental sounds and that, in turn, is good for your hearing. This puts less strain on your eardrums, and you hear your music and other sounds better and more clearly.

Undisturbed calls

Are you often bothered by ambient sounds resulting in a conversation full of "what are you saying?" or "I can't hear you!". Noise-cancelling headphones solve that problem and allow you to make undisturbed calls anywhere. Because if you can't hear the other conversations around you, you can understand the person on the other end of the line much better.

Experience peace and quiet anywhere, anytime

Perhaps the biggest advantage of noise-cancelling headphones is that you can experience peace and quiet everywhere. Don't feel like sitting on a train, crowded with people talking? Put on your headphones. Is the office crowded and noisy like it used to be? Put your headphones on. Did you want to enjoy the beach in peace and quiet but it's suddenly got busy? Put on your headphones. Noise-cancelling allows you to block out ambient noise and enjoy your music in all these situations (and more).
