Why You Should Buy Noise Cancelling Headphones

Noise is something I have never been a fan of, and the same might be the case with you.

In a world full of vehicles, heavy machinery, and noisy people, audiophile like me, and possibly you, decide to isolate ourselves. And in this process of isolating the outside noise, somewhere along the line, we were gifted with best noise canceling headsets.

Now, if you are already using that gift, i.e., Noise canceling headsets, you can skip this article. The reason being: You already know the importance of the noise canceling headsets. You have owned one and have got immersed in the music!

However, if you haven’t used noise canceling headphones ever, this article is for you. Because in this article, we are going to discuss the reasons behind considering a pair of noise-canceling headphones.

Why noise canceling headphones?

Before I list out the reasons for considering noise-canceling headphones, let’s make it clear that there are some negatives such as higher price.

Now without further ado, let’s get started!

It prevents from auditory masking:

This one is probably the most obvious one.

For those who aren’t aware of the term “Auditory masking,” here’s a simple definition. When some external audio (or mask) is mixed with the original sound, auditory masking occurs. In short, NOISE is the mask!

To overcome this ‘mask,’ there are two options.

  1. For regular headphones: In the non-noise-canceling headphones, there’s only one thing we can do- Blast up the volume from the device. Because essentially the problem is that the outside noise cancels out the comparatively quieter sound of the music you are listening to. Hence, if you increase the volume a notch, chances are the relatively quieter sound won’t be the same.
  2. For noise-canceling headphones: Absolutely NOTHING!

What would you prefer? Giving a few extra bucks to do NOTHING or increasing the volume every time you face the situation?

If you said, “I would rather raise the volume instead of paying a $50 more,” the next point is for you.

It prevents from hearing loss.

If you love music and wish to listen to Coldplay or Eminem your whole life, then buying a noise-canceling headphone will possibly be the best decision.

Because if you don’t do so, chances are, you won’t be able to listen, in general. What else can you expect from listening at the extreme volume? A pizza? Of course, you are slowly deafening yourself.

Not only does noise canceling headphones under $200  make your song sound perfect but also it protects you from loud places, even if the music is off.

In short, hearing loss due to noise is a no chance in case of noise-canceling headphones.

Final words

I think the above two reasons are more than enough to consider buying noise-canceling headphones. However, if you are still not convinced and want to keep your health & comfort on the stake, I am no one to argue. But if you are going to buy a pair, do let me know on the comments.
