There is unwanted noise all around us. Without Noise cancelling headphones, there is no escaping it.
There's engine and air noise on planes, blaring sounds of city streets, noisy air conditioners, unwanted noise in office and endless lawn equipment noise at home.
These constant sounds can cause fatigue and sap your energy.
If you've ever enjoyed effects of a good noise cancelling headphone, you know that it's possible to "slip on some quiet" and have a reprieve form all that unwanted noise.
Once you use a quality noise cancelling headphone, you'll wonder how you've ever gotten by without any. The first time I ever tied noise canceling headphones, I was astonished by how well they worked.
Hi, I'm Pilot Paul, Captain at a major airline. I've been using noise cancelling headphones for over a decade.
At my airline, we bring along an additional pilot on long flights. This allows us to take turns and have a rest break. That way we always have fresh, alert pilots at controls. We have use of a first class seat for this extremely important rest.
My airline provides a noise cancelling headphone for each first class passenger to use. They love them, and don't want to give them back at end of flight.
One of main reasons that I'm able to rest and sleep during my important rest breaks is noise cancelling headphones.

Unlike regular headphones, noise cancelling headphones do double-duty. They reduce noise in two ways:
* Passively- They have comfortable, insulated ear cups that block a lot of outside noise. * Actively- They electronically cancel out sound waves. They do this by picking up a sound, processing it, and then creating a new sound that effectively cancels original sound. They work best on loud, monotonous sounds like rushing air in airplane cabins or engine noise.
These two methods combine to reduce unwanted noise. When you use these, you'll experience a noticeable quiet. This is very relaxing and once you've used these, you'll wonder how you ever survived without them.
What You Can Expect From A Good Noise Cancelling
While lessening all sounds, noise cancelling headphones best reduce persistent, droning background noises. They're best at reducing sounds like engine and air noise, traffic, background noise at your office, your neighbor's lawnmower.
If you wear these at home (as I often do), and your child screams, you'll still hear that. This can be either good or bad, depending on your perspective.
When you first put on noise canceling headphones, you'll initially notice passive effect- all noises are reduced by comfortable, padded, insulated ear cups.
Then switch on active cancellation to eliminate droning sounds. You might not immediately think it's a huge improvement- but wait about ten minutes.
