For those who are new to noise-cancelling headphone and are not aware how these headphones work here is a brief desctiption. Noise cancelling works on principle of reducing the intensity, loudness (determined by amplitude for sound waves)  and Frequency (determines the pitch, higher frequency produces higher notes and lower frequencies produces lower notes)

In this article, we’re going to find out it’s best features and what it has to offer?
AWARE MODE : There are times when you do not want to be so cut off from your surroundings. Crossing a city street for example or waiting for airport announcements. This is where Aware mode comes in. Instead of removing your headphones, just press a button, and you’re back in touch with the sounds around you, while your music keeps playing, and you still benefit from some noise cancellation. TriPort technology and Active EQ combine to give your music a depth and balance that keep your daily soundtrack fresh and alive. The subtle details shine too.

 STAY HERE+ tips create a soft, secure fit with no need to force them into your ears. The cone shape spreads contact evenly across the ear for maximum comfort, and forms a gentle seal that contributes to the headphones’ full-spectrum noise reduction.

 BATTERY The built-in lithium-ion battery charges in just 2 hours with the included USB cable, and delivers up to 16 hours playing time per charge. A battery indicator light displays power status. And, even if the battery dies your music still plays.

 SOUND QUALITY: With QC20i headphones you’ll enjoy lifelike, digital sound quality that stands out from the noise around you along with the freedom of an in-ear headphone. StayHear+ tips physically block some noise while Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology electronically reduces most of what’s left. It’s just you and your music, even in noisy situations.


  QC20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones allows you to enjoy better sound quality and noise cancellation. For a person like me, who prefers calm and quiet surrounding while taking a nap, or always looking for ways to avoid flight sound while travelling, this headphone will work like a charm. I tried this headphone with TV switched on and volume audible enough to cause distraction. I was not able to hear TV or any surrounding sound. It was all Quiet. But when I focused my attention towards TV volume, it felt like the sound was coming from a long distance. And beacuse it was hardly audible, I really dont mind that. It basically shut out the world and allows you to lose yourself in your music – or let the world in. It’s your choice


Main feature of this headphone is noise cancellation by turning on a button that reduces surrounding distractions and focus on your music, or choose Aware mode to continue enjoying your music while also hearing what’s around you. It has Exclusive TriPort headphone technology brings your music to life. The Noise Cancelling technology provides noise reduction rivaling any full-sized headphone. The inline microphone and remote also let you easily control your iPhone or iPod.
