The 5 Best Noise Reducing Headphones


Music is something we all love to listen but because of some bad or low-quality headphones, we don’t get that exciting experience which we expect usually.

Well, this is the time when Noise-Cancelling Headphones come into existence.

As the name suggest, these headphones are designed to reduce the external sound (noise) and hence it enhances the music listening experience.

Now, the term noise cancellation can be looked by two ways: Active and Passive.

Passive simply means, reducing the external sound by ‘closing your ear more tightly’ with the help of some foamy material, which comes built in with headphones.

Now, the Active Noise Cancellation involves little tricky method. It includes a microphone, which is usually planted in the ear wells of headphones which aim to analyze the outside sound (noise) level and then reflects sound waves back into your ear, that eventually reduces the outside noise.

Well, the aim of both technique is same, to provide you a crystal clear sound.

Now that you know what methods are used in order to cancel noise, you can choose a correct set for you.
