    Worthy Of Consideration: ANC(Active Noise Cancellation) on the Road

    Understood. But I don't need my car speakers - even a sub - attempting to reproduce tones to even partially cancel out sub-100Hz engine rumble while performing their primary task of presenting Jimmy Garrison or John Paul Jones during my ride to work or to a weekend flea market. I possess a...

    Worthy Of Consideration: ANC(Active Noise Cancellation) on the Road

    Another reason why vehicular ANC will never be perfect - IE: completely cancel out all engine hum or road rumble at all seated positions in the cabin. I never noticed much of such noises in my comparable size '81 Buick Century - it had padding beneath the carpeting, and that padding extended...

    Worthy Of Consideration: ANC(Active Noise Cancellation) on the Road

    In a car, or a 767 cabin for that matter, most of the noise you want to cancel is below 1kHz. So you'd really be overtaxing the noise cancellation system, not just the speakers(!) by attempting to cover most of the human hearing range.

    My 'Active Noise Cancellation': Actively adding sound-deadening foam to the doors, firewall, and floor so that the music can be enjoyed at any volume preferred, without electronic noise bogging down the speakers. That's how we rolled.. No fancy whiz-bang circuitry.

    Worthy Of Consideration: ANC(Active Noise Cancellation) on the Road

    I heard the intermittent diminished bass myself, in my 2010 Honda Accord with the ANC system. After disconnecting it from the back of the Audio Unit(Honda's term for 'radio' or deck), I no longer experienced intermittent low-end performance from the speakers. And before you suggest the ANC...

    Worthy Of Consideration: ANC(Active Noise Cancellation) on the Road

    Even if all of this is considered, and even implemented, it still puts additional load on the main speakers - if they are asked to produce this antinoise in addition to faithfully reproducing their first order of business - your favorite music or other programming. Since most of the...

    Sonarworks Headphone Calibration software

    Does Sonarworks provide a list of, at least, the top 5-10 biggest adjustments made to the average curve for headphones? Freq, Q, and Gain(plus or minus)? I'm seeking figures for the Sony MDR-7506 and the Beyer DT880 250ohm Pro: General correction, not individual, is fine. The Equalizer app...

    Or noise cancelling headphones onboard an airliner. Constant steady cruising engines and cabin pressurization sounds. Pinnahertz, are you following this line of thought?

    How do I convince people that audio cables DO NOT make a difference

    He's being sarcastic, as are most of us that know better..!

    I. Don't. Trust. "OK Boomer" = "F- Y-" in these parts, bigshot. Aren't you supposed to be at least a couple years older than me?

    I. Don't. Trust. It. Fodder for the millennial generation.

    Worthy Of Consideration: ANC(Active Noise Cancellation) on the Road

    I have a loudness button on my receivers, and also use them. I just don't need a 'digital' solution for every audio challenge.

    I can achieve the same loudness thing at home, by increasing the bass at lower volume levels, and setting it flat for higher volumes.

    Worthy Of Consideration: ANC(Active Noise Cancellation) on the Road

    Hmmm... Sounds like overkill. Have you measured the amount of noise, collectively, these processors add to the signal chain? What is 'dynamic loudness correction'? And as far as 'timing correction' goes, do you personally sit in precisely the same position - within 1-2mm of X, Y, and Z values...
