Sennheiser has just added a new set of earbuds to its range called the Sennheiser CXC 700 that allow you to select from three different noise cancellation level from a selector handily located on the earphones cable.
The new CXC 700 ear-canal phone carry the same noise reduction technology (Sennheiser’s NoiseGard digital system) that is used in their headphones and also incoprate a handy TalkThrough function for conversations.
The three user-selectable noise cancellation modes are designed to provide the following:
Mode 1: has been designed to reduce intense low-frequency noise, like rumble from airplane engines or trains.
Mode 2 : aims at the middle of the frequency range (think: the whir of air conditioning units)
Mode 3: combines the other two modes, leaving high frequencies, which not only are needed to understand conversations, but rarely include consistent, everyday noise alone and focusing on eliminating the hums and whirs of modern life present in the lower-to-mid frequencies.
Sennheiser is hoping to start shipping the new CXC 700 in early 2011 for a retail price of around $319.95
