What is Noise cancellation? How does it works?

Mechanism: There are mics that listen to both outside and inside sounds, a combination of mics and speakers inverts and cancels the outside noise by neutralizing the sound waves.

What is Active Noise Cancellation?

Active noise cancellation technology is the process of eliminating the unwanted surrounding sound that would otherwise interfere with the music you’re listening to using headphones.

The logic used by ANC headphones is very simple yet very effective, noise from outside sound has an irregular rhythm and soundwave whereas the song we’re listening to has a neat rhythm and a particular soundwave, ANC technology churns out the irregular soundwaves and neutralizes them, thus you get to listen to the music without the interference of the outside noise.

What is Noise Isolation in headphones?

Noise isolation is the process of making the headphone or earbuds soundproof to an extent that there is minimum interference from the surrounding noise.

This is achieved by specially designing the earphones from a tight fit and using materials like memory foam ear cups to seal the outside noise from coming in.

Headphones with noise isolation features are cheaper than ones with ANC.

What’s the difference between passive noise-canceling and active noise-canceling?

Passive noise-canceling is done by specially designing the earphones, to seal the outside noise from coming inside.

These are done by making the headphone soundproof to some extent. There is no electronics component involved in passive noise-canceling.

Active noise-canceling (ANC), electronic components like mics & speakers are actively used in combination to neutralize the surrounding noise.

ANC is more effective in reducing noise and providing an ambient music listening experience.
