Full ear cup noise canceling headphones are great, but by their very nature they are too large for comfort. So Pioneer has just released their new SE-NC31C-K, which can remove up to 90% of ambient noise. The noise reduction can be turned off if you want, while still allowing you to listen to your audio.
They also have a “Monitor” button that mutes the music and turns off noise-cancellation quickly so that you can hear the sounds around you. That’s great for safety reasons alone. With a new single AAA battery the SE-NC31C-K earbud headphones will deliver up to 120 hours of noise canceling silence and they come with a storage pouch, 4.6 ft long cord, 4 ear tip sizes, in-flight plug adapter and a AAA battery.
