No matter where you go, enjoy peace and quiet with the MDR-NC22 noise canceling headphones. These compact and comfortable bud-style headphones can reduce noise by 87.4% (9dB at 300Hz), and the 13.5mm driver units produce powerful sound. Perfect for tuning out noise at work, traveling, or even when you are trying to sleep in a loud environment. The noise canceling circuit actually senses outside noise with built-in microphones and sends an equal-but-opposite canceling signal to the headphones. Additional features include an in-flight adapter, compact battery box and it even comes with a carrying pouch.
Noise canceling headphones reduce ambient noise and provide a quieter environment to enhance audio entertainment. The headphones have an inside microphone on each earpiece that work with an electronic circuitry to create an opposite sound wave to reduce wave. Ambient sound is reduced by synthesizing with a sound in opposite phase produced by the noise canceling circuit.
Loud, noisy environments – planes, trains, buses, work or dorms.
A supplied plug adapter connects directly to stereo or dual jack of in-flight music services.3
The drivers sit just outside the ear with the tip of the earbud small enough to fit into the ear canal for additional comfort, secure fit and sound blockage.
The headphones can operate as passive headphones when the noise canceling circuit is not activated. It allows the headphone to function as regular stereo headphones without using the battery.
