Digital Silence DS321D Digital Active Noise Cancelling Ear Buds

General Information

DS-321D, a state-of-the-art pair of stylish in-ear digital active ambient noise-cancelling stereo headphones with voice microphone, perfect for the busy professional on the go. Developed by audio and noise cancellation technology specialist Wolfson Microelectronics plc, the DS-321D combines Wolfson's class-leading myZoneTM digital active Ambient Noise Cancellation (ANC) with HD-quality music playback for crystal-clear tunes and talk on the move.

The DS-321D headphones have been designed specifically for mobile phone users, allowing for a hassle-free daily commute, business trip or lunchtime visit to the shops. Boasting Wolfson's myZoneTM digital ANC technology, the intrusive sounds of commuter trains, public address announcements or street traffic will be a thing of the past. With HD-quality speakers and microphones, music can be enjoyed just as the producer intended and calls will be a breeze for both the recipient and caller with the highly sensitive on-cord voice microphone.

Since the DS-321D uses active ambient noise-cancelling technology, the user is spared the experience of "blocked ears": reverberation of speech inside the head which is typically experienced in headphones with high levels of passive noise isolation. As such, the user experiences crystal-clear, natural-sounding telephone conversations.

Phone calls and music handling are a walk in the park as the stylish DS-321D headphones have a small and lightweight in-line pod with rechargeable battery and an easily-located multifunction control button, enabling users to simply answer and end phone calls and control their music playback without getting tangled up in wires.

When that all-important phone call or text message does come in, music lovers need not worry about its effect on sound. Working buzz-free with the phone, the DS-321D's won't crackle and pop like some other headphones. And, if travelling to work really is a big part of your day, a behind-the-neck wearing style and soft ear buds, included in three sizes, will ensure maximum comfort and usability.

A truly fuss-free experience, a handy LED status indicator tells the user when the battery needs recharging. The ANC function can be switched on and off at the touch of a button, and if users do find that they've used all 14 hours of playback time, the headphones will still work in passive mode until the battery is recharged. A useful Monitor function allows the user to mute the ANC and playback audio briefly if required.

A 3.5mm 4-pole audio connector makes the DS-321D ideal for maximum compatibility with devices from Apple, Motorola, HTC and Blackberry. An adaptor is also included to ensure compatibility with Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung and other devices.

Pros: ANC works well, remote button works with iOS
Cons: earbud fit is awkward, charging light never goes off
ANC works well, cutting out the growl of the bus, the rumble of the tube and the drone of office air-con. You can still hear talking and voice and announcements as you would expect.
