Active Noise Cancellation

September 08, 2016

Be sure you don't miss out on next week's announcement...

Since JLab Audio has something big coming…we wanted to share with you a little bit about active noise cancellation (hint, hint). 

There are two types of noise cancellation, there’s active and passive. Passive tends to lead to a heavier headphone, packed with materials to block out the noise, many think this doesn’t work as efficiently. And it doesn’t. Active is more technology based and really works hard to cancel out background noise such as a subway, an airplane engine, or loud traffic.

How does active noise cancellation work?

Step 1: The incoming ambient sounds (planes, trains, and automobiles) are trying to break through your headphone’s barrier.

Step 2: Inside the headphone is a microphone that picks up those sounds and sends them through the noise canceling process.

Step 3: A noise cancellation circuitry inverts the wave to create a new waveform and sends it to the headphones speaker.

Step 4: The original ambient sound and new waveform meet and cancel each other out, clearing your music from those pesky distraction noises.

Voila! You're distraction-free!

There are times during travel, work hours and even down time that complete focus and concentration is warranted. These are the times where active noise cancellation would be great while listening to music. I can’t wait to see JLAB’s new answer to this need.

I look forward to my 20 minute train ride as a chance to zone out on my way in to work. Unfortunately some fellow riders make this very unpleasant with loud talking, using their smartphone without headphones, etc.. Looking forward to see if these will allow me to zone out.

I am really looking forward to see how these headphones perform! I have tried many different noise cancellation options and some are very good and with others the noise cancellation technology actually adds more “distraction” to the intended audio. Given the great quality of the JLab products I have tried I am hopeful the noise cancellation will be in the the former group rather than the latter.
