Noise Cancelling Earbuds

On the road or at home, sometimes you need to escape noisy surroundings so you can have some peace or concentrate on what you're doing. Noise cancelling earbuds are one way fend off noise so you can relax or focus.

How Noise Cancelling Earbuds Work

Noise cancelling earbuds are music headphones that have miniature electronic circuitry that detects sound waves from external noise and emits sound waves that are the exact inverse of the external noise sound waves. In a process known as destructive interference, the inverse sound waves created by the noise cancelling earbuds combine with the external noise sound waves to render them inaudible to the wearer of the earbuds.

Noise Cancelling Earbuds or Noise Isolating Earbuds?

While noise cancelling earbuds can help you escape noise, if you're inclined toward earbuds (rather than on-ear or over-ear headphones) you may want to consider noise isolating earbuds rather than noise cancelling earbuds. Noise isolating earbuds, which work by creating a snug seal in your outer ear canal and thereby blocking out external noise, have certain advantages over noise cancelling earbuds:

  • While noise cancelling earbuds are geared particularly toward steady low frequency ambient noise (like the drone of airplane engines), noise isolating earbuds block out a wider frequency range of noise to include things like nearby conversation, crying babies, or barking dogs.
  • Noise cancelling circuitry requires power and some noise cancelling earbuds won't work at all if their battery dies. This is an important consideration if you're using your noise reducing headphones as headphones for travel.
  • Due to the circuitry involved, noise cancelling earbuds typically cost more than noise isolating earbuds.
