Like any headphone of its class, the EAH-A800 features active noise cancellation that uses two feed-forward mics and two feedback mics.

It also has a couple of listening modes. There's transparent mode which lets you hear your environment and then there's attention mode that continues to block out environment noise but emphasises voices so that you can hear important announcements while travelling.
