ASUS Introduces NC1 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones

ASUS NC1 active noise cancelling (ANC) headphones deliver 87% noise reduction, the most efficient performance of all headphone models at their segment. They are a great fit for commuters, travelers, office workers and students who require high quality personal audio, operating up to 100 hours on one AAA battery with ANC enabled. The NC1 headphones use light materials and weigh a mere 130g for easy mobility and storage.


87% noise cancellation minimizes distraction

Designed for people who want to enjoy personal listening experiences during their commute, the NC1 headphones feature advanced ANC technology that filters 87% of ambient noise. They actively detect environmental sounds such as engine noise and railway vibration, and generate inverse sound waves to cancel these out. The NC1 headphones achieve high fidelity audio through use of 40mm speaker drivers with specially-selected neodymium magnets that ensure faithful reproduction and dynamic bass performance in every usage scenario.

True audio enjoyment in both ANC and non-powered modes

With ANC enabled, the NC1 headphones work up to 100 hours on a single AAA battery, more than twice the battery life of competing headphones. This is more than enough for six average flights between New York and Hong Kong. Users can turn ANC off to enjoy the NC1 headphones battery-free, retaining high sound quality in music, movies and voice applications when usage in quiet environments eliminates the need for battery power.

Compact, light and highly transportable

The NC1 headphones use lightweight materials and a fold-flat design that renders them very easy to carry and fit into even small bags. The use of breathable protein leather-covered memory foam contributes to user comfort during extended listening sessions and extra-long commutes, including long-haul flights.
