OK. To state it plainly, there are two varieties of noise reduction, active and passive.

Passive noise cancellation/reduction is often a by-product of sporting the headsets in the first place. If a headphone covers your ears up, it essentially has the same noise reduction effect like a set of earmuffs. The sound has to work that much more difficult to travel to your ear how it must first go through a hard surface. Passive noise reduction arrives largely from blocking, or covering your ears and listening to a louder sound in closer proximity. If the friend is trying to speak with you and you canít listen to them due to the earphones, then that is passive noise reduction.

Active noise cancellation/reduction is a little more specialized. Headsets that actively cancel outside noise achieve this by producing a low field of white sound close to your ear, this effectively masks outside sound and is a purpose in and of itself, from the sound reproduction performance of the speakers.

To be truthful, anything you put in or about your ear has a passive noise cancellation effect, but only headphones pre-loaded with noise cancelling options will generate a masking white sound. This noise wonít interfere with the working of your headsets, but it’ll cover the noise from wind, rain, road works and the other train passengers and their noisy phone conversations.

Noise cancellation/reduction headsets will do a much better job of drowning out the noise pollution created by barking dogs, train bulletins, bad street buskers and the charity trolls who accost you in the street.

Joking aside, this is a FAQ because it’s an excellent one to ask. Noise reduction features significantly help to increase the price of your headsets and it’s absolutely worth knowing what you’re purchasing before you set your hard-earned down onto the counter.
