product description

The world’s first digital noise cancelling headphones. Ideal for frequent travellers – cut train, plane and automobile sounds by up to 99% and enjoy true hi-fi quality audio reproduction.

Cancel out external noise

Background noise from planes, cars, trucks, buses and busy environments is cut out with Digital Noise Cancelling headphones, leaving your ears free to listen to your favourite music only. A luxury fit gives you maximum comfort and minimum sound leakage.

Hear your music, nothing else
Listen to your music without the background noise, thanks to Digital Noise Cancelling. Advanced Artificial Intelligent Noise Cancelling automatically monitors your environment to find the right anti-noise profile – and blocks out an extraordinary 99% of ambient noise on some models.

Crisp, clear and powerful sound
The high power Neodymium driver found inside our headphones is super poweful, and delivers a wider frequency response to your ears – reproducing deep bass, dynamic vocals and clear treble sound. Enjoy crisp, warm audio at any volume.

Turn on, switch off
Stay aware of your surroundings with a convenient monitor switch to turn off Digital Noise Cancelling whenever you need to. Simply flick the switch to hear in-flight announcements or whatever’s going on around you, then turn back on for uninterrupted listening.

Listen without interruptions
Enjoy all your music with no interruptions. The battery stamina in your headphones is way ahead of the competition, with upto 100 hours uninterrupted listening on some models.Changing batteries will be the last thing on your mind when you can listen for so much longer on the move.

Unbeatable comfort
Experience maximum comfort and minimum sound leakage with our thick luxury flat headband style urethane ear-cushions. Designed to sit softly yet snugly on your ears for long periods, they’re ideal for frequent travellers looking for true Hi-Fi quality audio reproduction.
