Noise Canceling Earbuds

Noise canceling earbuds provide a pristine listening experience free from unwanted outside noise. An important distinction to keep in mind while shopping is between active and passive noise cancellation.

Active Noise Cancellation: This type of noise cancellation uses DSP (Digital Signal Processing) to actively combat outside noise. These headphones have internal microphones and audio processors that play opposite sounds to cancel out otherwise disruptive noise. With active noise cancellation, you can listen to your music at lower volumes and experience less ear fatigue.

Passive Noise Cancellation: Passive noise cancellation is a much more affordable option for noise canceling headphones. Instead of using technology, passive cancellation insulates the ear with padded foam and a snug fit. The most effective type of passive noise cancellation is with over-the-ear models. Even though passive noise cancellation helps deter outside noise, it does not completely eliminate it.

Wireless vs. Wired: Another distinction worth mentioning is between wireless and wired headphones. Wireless headphones are convenient for working out, moving around the house or multitasking. The downside to wireless headphones is that they need to be periodically charged and cannot achieve the same premium level of sound quality as their wired counterparts. For the absolute best listening experience, wired headphones are the right choice.
