Giving the Jump to the Wireless Headphones

If you are a person who usually travels with assiduity in airplanes, you will know that one of the best investments that you can make to make your trips calmer is to buy headphones with noise cancellation. When I talk about travel noise-canceling headphones, there are many that certainly the first name that comes to mind. Now, one of the best on the market has improved a lot as many integrate the Google assistant directly into the headphones.

For years, those travelers who were wearing a pair of headphones during an intercontinental flight were the object of my most ferocious envy. It is also because I often glimpsed them sitting in a comfortable business class armchair. While I sit sadly in tourist class (a nice euphemism to call the one that is less prosaically and more realistically appears on my ticket as 'Economy').

Recently noise-canceling headphones have become a more popular object. It has also become accessible to the public of the economy class. In general today we see them used by commuters on buses, trams, subways, and trains. The advantages of noise-canceling headphones, especially those of the latest generation, is actually very large.

Even the noisiest carriage can turn into a small oasis in which to listen to our favorite music. We can also focus on the work that we have to finish before an important meeting. We can as well relax while letting the public transport take us home.

In this sector, headphones are always surrounded by an aura of great exclusivity. Let's start by saying that there are many models in the range. They are aesthetically very similar to each other and distinguishable only to the more experienced eye.

Giving the Jump to the Wireless Headphones

Now let's go back in time. Can you tell me about the first headphones of history and how they have evolved? If you still do not know the answer, the first idea closest to headphones was born around the 19th century. Its name was Electrophone. It was a sybarite British phone service that was connected to the telephone line and was halfway between a stethoscope and headphone. It was used by the most privileged classes to listen live at the theater, the opera or even the sermon on Sundays.

But it was not until 1919, when the engineer Nathaniel Baldwin created the first headphones in the kitchen of his house and sold them to the United States Navy, producing more than 200,000 units for sale. Later, in 1937, the German company Beyerdynamic invented and produced the first dynamic headphones, DT-48, a design which is still on sale today.

After this walk through the history of hearing aids, let's keep talking about the wireless headphones. Starting from the solid foundation of the "old" QC 35, which had one of the most powerful noise cancellations ever tried, the QC 35 II play the smart card. It integrates with the Google Assistant present on your Android or iOS smartphone.

The design is the same, the sound quality has not changed, but now the Google assistant is added, which you can access directly. What does this mean? You can press the headset action button directly and talk to Google Assistant.

In theory what Google haa achieved is that there are no waiting times between when you press the button and give voice commands to the assistant. For example, you can review your calendar, get some information on the internet, make calls or receive notifications in audio. Many also updated the application to control the level of noise cancellation or what the action button should do.

It has everything you need on a modern headphone. In fact, it combines ANC technologies with Bluetooth wireless connectivity for listening to wireless music. The headphone has Bluetooth wireless connection and a very good noise cancellation. The use of a Bluetooth system in the headphone strengthens a stronger and more consistent connection. The high quality of noise cancellation is attributed to the microphones inside and outside the ear.

In addition to favoring the coupling with mobile devices, many have chosen to integrate an NFC module. Just place the phone on the headphones to perform the pairing.

There is a front where a few win hands down on the competition. It is light and does not tighten while remaining hovering anchored to the head. It has paddles and bow padded to perfection. It does not move if you lean somewhere (for example, on the headrest of the seat. It does not transmit noise or rust if the cable is moved or crawl on the clothes. And even if you lean on vibrating surfaces (like the plane's wall) it does not jump up because of the noise.

It is possible to connect the headphone at the same time to two devices that we can choose between a maximum of 8. It also informs of the battery status at each power-up. Audio playback, however, is available from only one device at a time.

By car, train or plane, noise suppression is able to guarantee considerable acoustic comfort, thus improving the listening quality. With just one click, it blocks ambient noises like the wind or the sound of crowds so that the people you talk to on the phone can hear you better - and you can hear them better. There is also a function that allows you to hear your own voice on the headphones while you are speaking so you do not have to raise your voice during your conversation. After wearing them for a few hours you understand why everyone has them in business class.

In fact, the headphones with Assistant recognize the arrival of a notification and are not limited to the simple warning sound like all the others. You can read the sender's name, and by pressing the Assistant button also read the content of the message (it works with any notification). If it is a text message, you will also have the opportunity to dictate the answer verbally, keeping the usual button pressed. There is no need to say "ok google" or other commands: it is a trivial "push to talk", which is more intuitive.

By pressing the Assistant button at any time, not only can you listen to any unread notifications, but you will also have appropriate suggestions, such as alerts to go out in time to get an appointment, information on weather, traffic, etc.

And all this works on iOS, not just on Android. The wireless headphones have a more elegant style and with the best noise cancellation technology. It comes equipped with a new digital equalization system that balances the sound if you are listening to an audio with high or low volume.

In fact, things seem more elaborate than they seemed in the beginning. But to find out how different the user experience is, I'll have to try out a new one personally. So I give you an appointment in the near future.

I am always so impressed with all of the Bose products. We own several and have never been dissapointed.

Bose is a really quality brand with amazing sound quality. Something I always have trouble with though is the fact that I wear glasses. Do you know how these perform when you're wearing them? A lot of headphones are too tight for glasses.

Zesty Olive said...

Wow - I just purchased this pair last week after looking at it for months. It truly is magical - it cancels out noise really well so that I can get work done. Great review!

makeshift said...

I should really look into this for cancelling out the noise of my children...haha. These look fabulous. We bought a similar pair for my mother who has poor hearing and used to have the TV blaring. She uses these instead now and saves everyone else's hearing.

Nightborn Travel said...

I would love to give this a try. My husband has some nice wireless headphones. My only issue with these nice over the ears headphones is that I can't hear anything else, and I like being able to know what's going on around me. XDD

This is definitely an excellent gift idea. I hear Bose is a good brand too, worth checking.

This feature is one of my most priority when buying headphones, noise cancellation. I had a different brand of headphone and I believe it worked fine but I think having bose type is a lot better.

Blair Villanueva said...

Erica M said...

My husband has noise cancelling headphones. I can scream at him when he has them on and he still won't hear me. The Boise headphones seem like they have lots of great features.

Deb Reader said...

These look really sleek. We use quite a bit of noise cancelling headphones in school but I don't think they invest enough and they always break. We should look into these!

I don't own any Bose products and I have to remedy that. I am eyeballing the earphones and of course I'd love some speakers!

Roselle Carlos-Toledo said...

I haven't tried any Bose product yet. I've been using Sony ever since and I dunno but I want my gadgets to have one brand only. I'll check that out when I visit the cyberzone mall.
