What is ANC in headphones?

If you are frequently exposed to loud noise at home or work, then ANC technology is the solution to your woes!

ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) technology will revolutionise your life. ANC tech allows you to reduce unwanted background sound by introducing a second sound that cancels out the first sound.

Feedback active cancellation is another type of ANC tech and in this type of tech, the mic is inside the ear cup which places it in front of the speaker and allows the ANC to better correct and cancel noises.
