PXC 310
PXC 310
The PXC 310 headphones provide undisturbed music enjoyment in noisy
environments. Their supra-aural, closed design and the latest active noise
compensation technology (NoiseGard) make the PXC 310 especially
suitable for use with in-flight entertainment systems. Due to their active
and passive attenuation of ambient noise, they let you enjoy music even
in noisy environments.
NoiseGardTM
The NoiseGard active noise compensation system is based on the principle
of cancelling out sound using “anti-sound” (phase-inverted sound). Tiny
microphones pick up low-frequency ambient noise (up to 1 kHz) near the
ear. The NoiseGard electronics use this noise to generate a sound wave
which is the exact opposite (IE: at the same level but polarity reversed –
180° out-of-phase), the effect being that the polarity reversed signal
cancels most of the outside noise.
TalkThrough
The PXC 310 headphones have a TalkThrough function, which allows you
to communicate with other people without having to remove the
headphones. When TalkThrough is activated, professional quality
microphones mounted on the outside of the headphones pick up all
acoustic signals in the immediate vicinity. Annoying background noise, e.g.
from turbine engines, is electronically filtered out, only allowing the voice
of the other person to pass through the headphones clearly.
