Sure, everyone is familiar with NC (Noise cancelling) technology. We see it incorporated into many headphone brands, allowing folks to drown out background noise so their music sounds better. But what if you want complete silence? Standard earplugs, for the most part, are a pretty poor solution. Enter QuietOn earplugs, which use active noise cancelling technology to minimize any and all sounds entering an ear canal.
The QuietOn “active” noise cancelling technology is what you’ll find in most NC headphones. They measure just right around 0.9 x 0.7 in and weigh in at 0.1 oz, so they’re fairly tiny. The Quiet On earplugs are ergonomically designed to fit comfortably and tightly in the ear. That tight fit facilitates the ability of this device to reduce the amount of noise that you can hear simply by closing off the ear. This is actually called passive noise reduction. The active noise cancellation (ANC), however, is where things get useful.
Features and Performance
Perfect for those that need a good night’s sleep without noise interference, the QuietOn earplugs are also great for travelers seeking silence during flights. The quality of active noise cancellation varies greatly in headphones, but there’s no question about the quality of the QuietOn earplugs. They work as promised….totally ridding the user of any outside and background noise.
Additionally, the QuietOn earplugs are wireless. They don’t have any buttons and are active the moment they are removed from their charging case. All you need to do is shove them into your ears, rotate them to a comfortable position, and you’re good to go. The QuietOn earplugs will provide up to 50 hours of battery life on a single charge.
