A walk in the Park (or Countryside) for Noise Cancelling!
A Brighton telephone box in Southern England, has an amusing mural painted on it. A character on his mobile phone is in danger of being hit by a car, but ironically the same phone could be helpful in emergencies. It always makes chuckle when I walk past – the people in that town are a quirky bunch! So be careful in your environment with noise cancellation – I’ve spent most of my time walking around the countryside with Sony’s WH-1000XM3’s, so far though.
Sometimes, audio gear doesn’t have to be expensive! Case in point is the ability to noise cancel and do it well, because musical enjoyment is about your in situ environment. Take the inverse of noise in your environment, amplifier it and feed it back into your headphones – tricking the brain no less!
Sony’s WH-1000XM3’s ‘do’ noise cancelling extremely well and this is a major reason to consider these. In this film I check out a comparison to some old Bose cancellers (QC15), the features on offer and how you can integrate app features with these ‘cans’. Watch out though as the new XM4’s are expected this year – see here
