Noise Cancellation: What it is and how it works

Read more to see how this technology enhances your music experience.

One of the determining factors in the quality of sound we perceive through our high-fidelity headphones is the ambient noise (noise from outside of the headphones, which is obviuolsy not music). This is especially the case if you live in noisy neighbourhoods, or if you do not have an acoustically isolated room, if you are in public places or simply traveling by any means of transport.

 

There are several ways to avoid the annoying background noise, or at least to minimize it to the point where it ceases to be perceptible for most users, the best type of which is classified as active technology.

 

Passive Noise Cancellation Through Design

 

There are passive methods of noise cancellation, but they do not work well at low frequencies (below 100 Hz) or those over 8-20 dB, depending on the materials used, whether wholly or partially surrounding the ear.

 

Passive Noise Cancellation Through Engineering

 

If we go a step further and eliminate all outside noise as possible, we must choose the systems known as Active Noise Cancellation or ANC (Active Noise Control).

 

How does Noise Cancellation Work?

 

Its operation, it is based on the theory of wave interference. With this feature, it is theoretically possible to create an artificial sound wave added to the original waveform, which results in the total or partial cancellation of what is known as ‘destructive interference of waves’.

 

Moving into the world of headphones, the original signal is the sum of the signal we want to hear, i.e. the music.

 

3 Stages

 

noise cancellation headphones

 

Microphone

 

Any sound that is not music is picked up by the microphones placed in the earcups of the headphones.

 

Electronics

 

The electronic circuit within the earcups will then analyse the sound.

 

Then a artificial signal ( anit sound wave ) is created by an electronic circuit that cancels out the noisy environment.

 

Speakers

 

The "anti-sound" created by the noise-canceling circuitry is fed into the headphones' speakers along with the normal audio; the anti-sound erases the noise by destructive interference, but does not affect the desired sound waves in the normal audio.
