A key distinction with digital noise canceling is precision. The NC100D reduces up to 98.2% ambient noise when the noise canceling circuit is activated.
Easy-to-reach volume and built-in monitor function on the controller allows you to hear surrounding sound without taking off the headphones for flight announcements or conversation.
Enjoy up to 22 hours of listening time1 with one AAA battery.
Digital technology provides for optimal noise cancelation with outstanding audio performance. Read below to learn more about the digital difference when it comes to noise canceling headphones.
Not all ambient noise is the same. When you press the Artificial Intelligence (AI) button the headphones will automatically select the optimal noise canceling mode (for aircraft, train or office) based on intelligent analysis of environmental ambient noise.
Proper fitting noise isolation earbuds not only stay in your ear more comfortably and securely; they also provide better attenuation of ambient sound.
Travel pouch, in-flight plug adapter, neck-chain style cord with controller (4.9 ft), cord adjuster, and AAA battery included.
Full, natural sound is reproduced via full digital amplification in concert with a digital equalizer. Large 13.5mm drivers work with digital sound enhancer circuitry to deliver wider frequency response and broad dynamic range.
Allows audio listening even when the power is turned off. Listening in an already quiet environment? Save the battery for later. Or should your battery run out mid-flight and you not have a spare, you’ll still be able to listen without the noise canceling activated.
Vertical in-ear style housing and proper fitting earbud sizes allow the large 13.5mm drivers to rest comfortably in your ear.

Pros: Sound quality and noise canceling
I tried at least six different noise canceling headphones including owning a pair of Bose QC-15s. As soon as I tried these headphones on a flight I took the Bose back for a refund! The combination of noise isolation and canceling along with the very comfortable and lightweight in-ear design make these a hands down winner. When you add the great sound quality they just can't be beat. They still work as normal headphones if the battery dies unlike the Bose, and they have a button that mutes the music and uses the microphones to pick up voices if the flight attendant is trying to give you food. I'm extremely happy with these headphones even though I felt some of the Sony on-ear models lacked sound quality. These are more than worth the money!
