Long Beach, Calif. - Pioneer Electronics introduced a pair of noise-canceling ear buds today.
The SE-NC31C-K ear buds are designed to cancel up to 90 percent of outside noise. They feature microphones located in each ear piece to measure unwanted low-frequency noise, Pioneer said, and the components then insert an equal amplitude, opposite phase signal of the unwanted noise to cancel it before it reaches the listener's ears.
They have 14.2mm drivers and can reportedly operate for up to 120 hours using one AAA battery. Four different sizes of ear tips are included, as is an in-flight plug adapter and a carrying pouch.
The ear buds are currently available for a $99 suggested retail.
