Interest in active noise cancelling (ANC) headphones is growing quickly in Russia. In 2020, a lot of new devices were released and the offer among TWS headsets increased sharply, RIA News reports.
According to the experts, the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones for 29,990 rubles were recognized as the best ones. This series of headphones is considered ideal for those who want to drown out the noise around them as much as possible. The model is able to suppress mid and high frequency sounds. For noise-cancelling, there is a separate processor QN1. The large size of the headphones allows placing a rather large battery inside which can operate for 30 hours. However, microphones do not provide high-quality voice communications.
Another model, Bose QuietComfort 35 II, priced at 21,990 rubles, cuts off mid and high-frequency sounds. Users note that the manufacturer was “tricky” with the firmware, so, after the next update, the effectiveness of noise reduction has decreased. It is specified that QuietComfort 35 II supports a wide range of Bluetooth codecs up to aptX HD. A single charge lasts 20 hours with ANC on. However, there is only a micro USB port available in the headphones.
The Apple AirPods Pro headphones for 20,990 rubles use transparency mode when microphones transmit a sound image around them through music or conversation. Silicone tips act as passive sound insulation in such a case. However, users often complain about defects, such as crackling and clicks. It is noted that when recharged from a case, the headphones can operate 24 hours.
