Sennheiser CXC 700 ear-canal phones
Sennheiser intends to offer big performance in a small package with their CXC 700 ear-canal phones that will be part of their already successful travel range, where this pair of earphones will sport active noise cancellation. Since it is a completely new feature, you will find that the innovative NoiseGard digital system deliver a choice of three noise-cancelling profiles for travelers.
All three choices have been specially optimized for the wide range of surrounding noise that one encounters when traveling, regardless if it is a rickety old bus, the incessant hum of a jet engine, or even the loud chatter of a bustling morning market while you walk around, mingling with the locals and doing your utmost best to blend in – all while enjoying your favorite artist performing on your iPod.
Basically, the new CXC 700 is “smart” enough to adapt to its surrounding environment with but a single push of its button. We shall now take a closer look at the three noise-cancelling profiles that can be chosen to adapt NoiseGard to one’s immediate surroundings. Mode 1 is capable of absorbing low-frequency noise in particular (100 to 400 Hertz), so you can be sure engine noise from trains, buses or small passenger planes will trouble you no longer if it works as claimed.
Mode 2, on the other hand, will focus on cancelling noise in the medium frequency range (400 to 3,000 Hertz) that is derived from air-conditioning systems in large passenger aircraft or office buildings. As for Mode 3, this boasts a pretty wide frequency range (100 to 3,000 Hertz), where it will merge the noise-cancelling effect in the medium and low-frequency ranges. To put it in a nutshell, background noise with different noise components, including those that occurs at airports, railway stations or underground stations, can be suppressed to a certain extent.
Since the CXC 700 is extremely compact in size, it ought to be able to fit into just about any piece of luggage you tote around without causing you additional burden. You can even wear it to sleep without suffering from any adverse effects, as you are transported into a new musical world of your choice. A control unit has also been integrated into the cable as seen above for easy access. Out this month, would you want to give it a go?
