CUT THE NOISE

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

WE HAD TO TEST the Blaupunkt noise-can­celling head­phones as this is one com­pany that is known in In­dia for its car au­dio more than any­thing. Also, we wanted to see if the noise­can­celling head­phones were re­ally any good. The CN-112 looks like a reg­u­lar closed on-ear head­phone, cov­er­ing most of your ears. It has very soft ear cups that can fold flat if needed. The cord is de­tach­able mak­ing it even eas­ier to pack into its neat case. On the left ear cup is what dif­fer­en­ti­ates this de­vice. Here you find a tog­gle but­ton to switch on ac­tive noise can­cel­la­tion (ANC) and a dial to con­trol its in­ten­sity. The au­dio qual­ity of the CN-112 is quite good, es­pe­cially if you re­ally lis­ten­ing to some­thing with heavy bass. We felt it lacks a bit of loud­ness if your source is a mo­bile de­vice. The sound re­pro­duc­tion is full spec­trum, es­pe­cially with the vo­cals re­ally com­ing out clearly. Switch on the noise can­cel­la­tion and you can re­ally make out the dif­fer­ence. It re­ally cuts out most of the sounds. We say most be­cause when we tried it out in the of­fice we could hear some of the chat­ter in the back­ground. Ad­just the ANC dial and you can cut out this noise too.
