How do noise canceling headsets work?
There are a number of components required to achieve the noise canceling effect:
A microphone placed inside the earphone “listens” to external sounds that cannot be blocked passively.
The noise canceling circuitry is fitted discretely in the ear-cup. It senses the input from the mic and generates a “fingerprint” of what it hears, noting the frequency and amplitude of the incoming signal. Then it creates a new waveform that is 180 degrees out of phase with the waves associated with the noise. Merging the two waveforms together utilises â€œdestructive interferenceâ€ to blot out the unwanted noises leaving the callerâ€™s or userâ€™s speech.
These type of headsets require power to let the electronics do its bit.Â This will be normally done by a rechargeable battery.
Using these constituents, noise canceling headsets are able to provide about 20 decibels of noise reduction. That means about 70% of ambient noise is effectively suppressed, making noise canceling headsets ideal for travelling or working in open plan office environments or other locations with a high level of background noise.Â noise_canceling_headsets.pdf
