Microphones in the headphones detect ambient noise that is interfering with your music. Information from the microphone is fed to the audio enhancer pack where it is analyzed and a precise active noise cancellation wave is generated. When this "anti-noise" wave meets the unwanted noise, the noise is reduced up to 95% so your music comes through loud and clear.
Maxell's HP-NC1 portable headphones are equipped with Noisebuster, a patented noise-reduction technology that really works, making the HP-NC1 an ideal companion for in-flight (or even on-bus) music lovers.
The Noisebuster technology works via the following process: tiny microphones within each earpiece "listen" for any pervasive environmental noise and send this information to a device called an in-line audio-enhancer pack. This device reads and analyzes the information and then generates a noise-cancellation wave that's out of phase with the noise itself. The audio-enhancer pack feeds this wave back into the headset--when the noise wave goes up, a corresponding cancellation wave goes down, causing the two signals to cancel each other out. This eliminates a good deal of unwanted sonic junk, from airplane engine noise to distant freeway traffic seeping into your living room.
We evaluated our HP-NC1s as a utility crew used jackhammers on the street outside our listening room. Because you can bypass the Noisebuster technology with a switch, it was easy for us to compare the noise-canceled signal to the standard sound. While Noisebuster didn't entirely eliminate the jackhammer's rat-a-tat-tat, it did significantly reduce the sound so that we could listen to quiet music, such as soft jazz and classical.
As for the sound of the headphones themselves, the midrange is clear, but the HP-NC1s are a little sluggish overall, with no deep bass or extended high frequencies. In fairness to the HP-NC1s, noise-canceling headsets often sound restricted in the frequency extremes, as it can be tricky for the noise-canceling devices to differentiate between noise and music. The fit of these headphones is also a little snug for our taste, but you can loosen them a bit by gently bending the headset.
We have heard comparably priced, non-noise-canceling headphones that sound better than Maxell's HP-NC1. However, better sound doesn't matter much if you're having a hard time hearing the music in a noisy environment. At this price, these headphones are a bargain.
- Noisebuster technology works well
- In-flight dual-jack adapter included
- In-line volume control
- Snug fit may be uncomfortable
- Average sound quality

This pair of replacements look the same and bear the same model number but the comparison ends there. The new ones have terrible dynamic range and sound flat and dull. the cord has been upgraded to a much heavier gauge - too heavy in my opinion as it is now so stiff that it gets in the way.
Both pairs, old and new, do a good job of blocking out background noises.
I really liked my originals for when I am reading or painting and wanted to mute the sounds from the rest of the house but this new pair, while they still do an acceptable job of blocking sounds, are not worth wearing.
I make dub step music mixes and they get played through large powered speakers in a pretty large building. I use these headphones to get an idea of how it will sound in this venue with regards to volume and bass. These do the job for me!!
I guess the headphones my dad had were made with better quality assurance than the ones I bought. The left headphone stopped producing sound completely and could not get it working again. I treat my things with great care and never handled these headphones any way but gently. Not sure the problem. I did have 5 stars but had to reduce to 2 stars. Would have went to 1 star, but the sound quality was actually good as I stated above.
Counting beats and mixing, these headphones with the noise reduction, make it so much better to dial in.
As everyday headphones the sound and it's delicate wired nature, may turn some people off.
They are somewhat comfortable, battery life is great, and comes with a carrying bad. No quarter inch adapter,not too many people need it anymore.
All in all, a bit delicate, wires can become weak at junctions.
They do what I want them to do, so I buy a couple and keep a pair as backup for gig.
I own Grado, too bright, Beyerdynamic, my favorite set, and briefly had Bose, way too pricey, and nowhere near neutral in sound.
If they were more durable, I would rate them higher.
If you're careful with them and want cheap noise cancelling headphones, they are worth it.
