New Sennheiser headphones announced 7 January 2011 15:30:22
Sennheiser has announced a new set of travel headphones that are specifically designed to cancel out various types of noise when travelling.
Called the CXC 700, they feature Sennheiser's NoiseGard technology with the choice of three noise-cancelling profiles that can be used block out noise created by different types of transport.
Mode one absorbs low-frequency noise in particular (100 to 400 Hertz), such as
engine noise from trains, buses or small passenger planes.
Noise in the medium frequency range (400 to 3,000 Hertz), such as that caused by air-conditioning systems in large passenger aircraft or office buildings, is best blocked out with mode two.
Mode three, meanwhile, focuses on cancelling out noises with a wide frequency range (100 to 3,000 Hertz), for use in circumstances where there is a variety of different background noise, such as at airports and railway stations.
"The possibility to select one of three different modes that are optimised for different environments considerably improves the noise-cancelling effect. Precise filters generate a result that is up to five times better than that of the analogue system." Daniel Chee, product manager for the Sennheiser Travel Line, said.
Sennheiser unveiled the CX 700s at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where it also revealed a new line of gaming headphones.
