Featuring Multi-Noise Sensor technology, an array of mics detect all types of background noise. The signal is then honed by cutting-edge processing that cancels more external noise than ever. Noise isolation earbud tips help refine the sound still further. The result is a super-quiet background, even in busy office environments or when traveling on public transport.
