Where is the noise cancellation?
on 26 August 2009
As regular headphones go, these are fine - good sound quality, easy to transport due to the folding frame and the pouch that they come with.
However, I've tested them in a variety of different environments - on a train, on the underground, and my workplace (where I'm surrounded by machines that churn away all day). They do reduce extraneous noise due to the constructiuon of the earpads (which cover then entire ear), but I can't hear any discernible difference between the signal I receive with the noise cancellation feature switched on, and the one I receive when it's turned off.
These are the first noise cancelling headphones I've ever bought - are there any readers who could recommend a pair which does the job more effectively without costing an extortionate amount of money? I'd be very grateful if so.
