Maxell has introduced a noise cancellation headphone that the company said compares "very favorably" with similarly featured units at four times the price.
The HP/NC-II, designed for airline travel and home theater use, is said to eliminate up to 95 percent of sounds that interfere with a user's listening. It offers enhanced audibility of distinct tones for a truer audio representation, reduced distortion resulting from over-amplification, lower non-linear distortion and reduced variability in frequency response.
Loaded with features, the HP/NC-II is a digital-ready stereo headphone that is comfortable, lightweight and easy to adjust. It is collapsible and compact for portability and ease of storage. It offers 50 hours of battery power with two AAA batteries and a dual-prong adapter for portable and in-flight entertainment systems. Included for the $49.99 suggested retail is a drawstring travel storage pouch. Availability was scheduled for March.
