Reasons Noise cancellation earphones/headphones aren’t perfect as Noise-Reduction headphones

Noise reduction headset and noise cancellation headphone are not the same thing. People who are Addicted to Audio’s headphone stands do not use electronics to aggressively suppress ambient noise; they are better classed as noise reduction headphones. Instead, the Direct Sound headphones suppress sound by reflecting it away from your ears and enclosing them in unique sound isolating ear cups. Therefore, your music will have more sound isolation and better sound quality.

Noise-cancelling headphones sound better.

Most noise-cancelling headphones employ electronics to “listen” to the sounds around you in order to create a “opposite” sound wave to cancel the sound inside the ear cups. Because the headphones actively eliminate incoming sound with a cancelling sound wave, this is known as active noise cancellation. The primary issue with this form of noise reduction for audiophiles like us is that the “cancelling” sound wave that is supposed to block ambient noise also ruins the music you’re trying to listen to. There’s no getting around it. As an example, consider the frequency of a single sound.

Noise Cancelling Headphones Are Exceptionally Clear.

Noise abatement because headphones do not employ electronics to suppress noise, they do not inject swooshing static noise into your music or ruin any of the audio frequencies in it. The end result is crystal clear music, exactly as the artists intended.

Headphones with noise cancellation block much more noise.

Extreme Isolation of Direct Sound Headphones are noise-cancelling headphones that block more noise and cover a larger frequency range than active noise cancellation headphones. A typical pair of active noise cancelling headphones blocks 12 to 17 decibels of noise. Even the most expensive active noise cancelling headphones, which cost $300, only block roughly 17 to 19 decibels of noise. The Direct Sound Extreme Isolation headphones block 29 decibels of sound on average. If it doesn’t seem like much of a change, keep in mind that 10 decibels is twice as loud. This implies that these headphones will block twice as much sound.

In conclusion, here’s why our noise reduction headphones are superior to active noise cancellation headsets:

  1. Improved audio quality for your music
  2. Blocks a larger range of sound
  3. Blocks greater decibels of sound
  4. Effective in blocking short bursts of sound such as TVs, talking, barking pets, and so on.
  5. No need for batteries
  6. Longer lasting
  7. You get more bangs for your buck


People who are Addicted to Audio’s headphone stands not only reduce sound by a greater number of decibels, but they also block a wider range of sound. Only continuous, rumbling noises, such as jet engine noise, are blocked by active noise cancellation headphones. Short bursts of noise, such as phones ringing or people talking, are difficult to block. It is due to the headphones’ circuits not having enough time to construct a “cancelling” sound wave for these brief noise bursts.
