The Philips Fidelio NC1L headphones use a hybrid Active Noise Cancellation approach, with four microphones detecting ambient noise before inverting the signal.
Two ‘FeedBackward’ microphones positioned next to the headphone drivers provide noise cancellation at low frequencies, while the two ‘FeedForward’ microphones extend the bandwidth of noise cancellation into the mid and high frequencies.
The headphone is one of the first to have a direct digital connection to iOS device via the Lightning connector.
The M2L headphones are now commercially available across Western Europe and will launch in North America in Spring.
The Philips Fidelio NC1L headphones will be available in North America in April with a suggested retail price of $299.
