In the not-too-distant past, people wore headphones solely for entertainment. Not any more. Today headphones have become an all-day, everyday companion. People use noise cancelling headphones, in particular, for work as much as for play. We currently offer several styles of noise cancelling headphones, all of them featuring proprietary Bose noise cancelling technology that makes quiet sound quieter and music sound better.

What is the difference between active and passive noise cancelling headphones?
Active noise cancelling (ANC) headphones use sophisticated algorithms to analyse surrounding noise and create an opposite sound wave to cancel out unwanted noise, while passive noise cancelling headphones use physical barriers like padded ear cups to block out external noise.
Are noise cancelling headphones good for travelling?
Yes. Our noise cancelling headphones are ideal for travelling as they can block out unwanted sounds like aeroplane engine noise and allow you to enjoy music or films in peace.
Can noise cancelling headphones be used for phone calls?
Yes. Our noise cancelling headphones are ideal for phone calls. With a combination of unwanted background noise reduction and built-in microphones, noise reducing headphones can be used for phone calls with clear audio quality.
What are noise cancelling headphones, and how do they work?
Noise cancelling headphones use advanced technology to reduce ambient noise and provide a more immersive listening experience. The headphones work by analysing surrounding sound waves and then producing opposite sound waves that cancel out the noise.
