Active Noise Control

Active noise control headphones are a type of noise reduction headphones that use advanced circuitry to actively identify and negate external noise. In headphones with active noise control:

  • Miniature microphones within the headphone earpieces detect external noise.
  • Circuitry embedded within the earpieces analyzes the sound wave associated with the external noise and emits a second sound wave exactly inverse to the external noise sound wave (with the same amplitude but inverted phase).
  • In a phenomenon known as phase cancellation or destructive interference, the two combined waves effectively cancel each other out, making the external noise inaudible to the headphone wearer.

As a type of noise reducing headphones, active noise control headphones (also known as sound canceling headphones) are especially effective at negating constant low frequency noise such as the drone of an airplane engine or the sound of a train speeding along tracks. As such, active noise control headphones are a popular choice as headphones for travel.
