How noise-canceling headphones work

  • The microphone on the earcup listens out for ambient noise.
  • When the noise is registered, the microphone sends the frequency and amplitude of the incoming wave back to the noise-canceling circuitry.
  • An out-of-phase sound is created, then fed into the headphone speakers, along with the music you're playing.
  • It cancels out around 70 percent of external noise without affecting the music you're listening to.

When using noise-canceling headphones, the unwanted sounds are canceled out by creating an opposing sound wave to the one you want to eliminate.
