More noise captured

Dual Noise Sensor Technology

Dual microphones – one feed-forward and one feed-back – on the surface of the headphones catch more of the ambient sounds of your surroundings, whether it’s in-flight noise, city traffic or office chatter.

More noise cancelled

HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1

Having caught the ambient sound, the dedicated HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1 gets to work. It not only cancels significantly more noise across almost all frequencies but also uses less power.
