Solitude XCS Active Noise Canceling and Amplifier Headphones provide true high fidelity stereo listening with active noise canceling technology (ANC), but this headphone does not stop there. Solitude XCS is the first ANC headphone to allow you the flexibility to selectively enhance your music by simply flipping a switch to bypass the active noise canceling feature, and instead, actively amplify the audio input. Ordinary ANC headphones, even the really expensive models, let you use the active noise canceling feature or bypass it, which reduces the headphones to passive speakers. With Solitude XCS you get another choice. Instead of switching to a passive mode, Solitude XCS amplifies the sound you are feeding it, giving you the greatest level of control over your sound experience ever.
How The Solitude XCS Works
Innovative inert protein (think, sea sponges) ear cushions create an extraordinarily comfortable acoustic seal, that blocks out much of the ambient background noise, even before you turn on the electronics. When you do hit the on button, the Solitude XCS Headphones' patent pending circuitry instantly provides a high level of continuous noise reduction across the entire acoustic spectrum. Tiny microphones located inside each ear cup measure the exact noise level that would reach the ear. Solitude XCS then calculates the optimum anti-phase signal needed to cancel out the ambient noise, and produces that inverted sound wave, physically canceling out the noise and leaving you with just the sound of silence; that is, unless you choose to plug into a music source. With the background noise gone, you are left with pure listening enjoyment.
Solitude XCS Headphones feature an industry-first, multi-selector switch, that allows you to bypass the ANC circuitry, and then boost your audio input through direct signal amplification technology for a full rich sound. So you can choose to use your Solitude XCS Headphones with or without ANC, and with or without audio boost, for the greatest flexibility in listening available in any active noise canceling headset available, and at an unbelievable price!
With Solitude XCS, You Won't Miss a Call
Solitude XCS headphones come complete with a standard 3.5mm audio input cable that is fully compatible with most smart phones, computers, gaming devices, and tablet systems, letting you choose virtually any music source you may have available.
