Sennheiser CXC 700 Ear-Canal Phones Have Three Levels Of Noise-Cancellation

Posted Jan 12, 2011

At CES Sennheiser has announced the CXC 700 ear canal phones. The CXC 700 has three levels of noise cancellation, each with different optimization settings. Mode 1 noise cancellation absorbs low-frequency noise (100-400Hz) like buses, trains, planes. Mode 2 cancels noise from medium frequencies (400-3,000Hz) like large aircrafts and office buildings. Mode 3 focuses on the wide frequency range (100-3,000Hz) which combines Mode 1 and Mode 2. The ear canal phones also have a TalkThrough function if you want to have a conversation with someone without removing the headphones. The TalkThrough function is activated with an acoustic and visual signal. The CXC 700 will be available later this month for $320. [Sennheiser Press Release]
