PHILIPS Noise Canceling Headphones

April 18, 2010

A couple of days ago I traveled by bus down through northern Sweden, from Haparanda back home to Umeå; a seven hour trip over 400 kilometers. An excellent opportunity to try out my new Philips headphones!

The headphones come in a nice black case and have a nice and kind of exclusive look to them. One of the great things with them is that they have a function that reduces noise from the surroundings.  The headphones have an on and off button and when I tried it out, it made a big difference. The surrounding sounds faded away quite significantly.

Since I didn’t have access to the Internet (read Spotify) on the bus I had to try them out with the collection of MP3s that I have on my computer. I don’t have that many MP3s so I had to work with what I got. Umeå Punk City is a collection of bands from, yeah, Umeå. I tried out some of the best from this collection; Invasionen, Brottsvåg and of course the genius Masshysteri. The sound was very good!

I also had some TED talks podcasts to try out how the headphones worked with the spoken word. And, beside learning the intriguing subject of “life lessons from an ad man”, I found that the sound was even better than when listening to punk rock from Umeå. Here the function of noice canceling really comes in use. The dialogue gets a lot clearer without the disturbance from obnoxious passengers on the bus.

I’m really pleased with the headphones and I will definitely continue to use them on the endless trips me and Sika’s success will generate. But in that case mostly to cancel out Sika’s constant babbling.
