Being a musician and avid concert-goer, I was worried that when my kid came along, both pursuits would be curbed if not brought to a bloody end. This, of course, meant I would be back in those local concert venues two, three, four times a week, usually till 3 or 4 a.m.
This can be a daunting challenge for some, as parental concerns sometimes trump the desire to see the Devo reunion show or to attend Coachella for the weekend.
A lesser concern of mine, but maybe a big one in some parents’ books, is the behavior of the crowd. Now there is always the possibility that the child will fall asleep or lose interest in the band you have so carefully chosen. The Microcom system is a generic, low-profile boom mike system specifically designed for applications where the user may be exposed to high noise levels but must be able to use head protection in complete comfort. The communication system, but at the same time a hearing protector, can be supplied in single (left or right) or dual formats.
The microcom in-ear boom mike system offers at least 25 dB attenuation of ambient noise with a fully occluded ear canal. Dies ist der von diesem VerkA¤ufer angegebene Preis (ohne Verpackungs- und Versandkosten), zu dem der VerkA¤ufer denselben Artikel bzw.

These Headphones are designed with an in-line volume control and deliver high quality stereo sound. Personal, portable electronics have led to people playing more audio, at louder volumes, for extended periods of time.
Spoon 12 tbsp milk powder and 12 tbsp oatmeal into the center of a large square of muslin, then tie the corners in the center to secure. Whether it’s on the subway, on the bus, at the grocery store, or even just walking about town, zoned-out people sporting earbuds are everywhere. Sure, when my little one was a brand-new baby, I made very few treks to the local clubs to see my favorite bands, and my number of gigs as a drummer dropped significantly. Then up at 7 with the kid to get her ready for school and begin either freelance writing or teaching drum and guitar lessons.
But there are ways to make it happen and, in the process, turn your kid on to the experience of listening to music in a group setting, which teaches lessons all its own. As a longtime sufferer of tinnitus, I am literally painfully aware of the damage loud music can do to young ears. Drunken buffoonery can be entertaining for an adult to witness, but children might not understand why the giant, obnoxious beardo is pounding the face of that smaller, obnoxious beardo.
They are rare, and when they do occur, why point it out as taboo or “bad?” I answer my daughter honestly if briefly, then direct her attention back to the music. Attending kid’s concerts is the perfect way to get her interested in seeing shows in general, and you can totally geek out at a Yo Gabba Gabba show. It is a full or half duplex communication system, depending on the application, which standard is supplied with profiled eartips. If a single format is used in a high noise environment, it is essential that the opposing ear is fitted with a good quality plug.

Of late – well, in the past two years, let’s say – I have found myself in an enjoyably awkward situation. I always try to choose shows that are either at non-smoking venues or are smoke-free shows. My disinterest in the ugliness of such behavior will, hopefully, encourage her to be similarly disinterested. One could justify allowing the child to continue sleeping, but bed is the best place for a kid who’s zonked.

After losing my day job, what was once a way to earn supplemental income and a method of expressing myself became my full-time job. And she’s now at the age at which I can take her along to various concerts I long to attend. If a physical danger presents itself, of course, we head for the door, but I can’t remember a time that has happened. If the kid is about to enter Meltdown Mode because she can’t possibly take another moment of this crappy band, then pack up and head home. Connects to devices using standard 3.5mm stereo plug and has 6' foot cord for increased mobility. People dont realize how loud their devices are, especially when they are turning up the volume to combat background noise.
Even at what you might consider a low-volume concert, if you are attending with baby, block those developing ear drums. Even one of my favorite bands, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, demanded a smoke-free show when the violinist, Carla Kihlstedt, was pregnant.) You may have to make a few sacrifices when picking concerts to attend with the family or attend these shows by your lonesome.
Better to leave when she is still relatively manageable, than to turn her off of the concert-going experience altogether. But exposure to loud noise can damage your hearing over time and, sadly, once it’s gone it’s gone. Sure, some jackasses will light up in a crowd, but smoke dissipates quickly outside, and I always use these moments to talk to my kid about the dangers of the habit. Noise-cancelling earbuds or headphones that block out background noise can also help listeners avoid turning the volume up too high. If the volume’s so low you can’t hear anything over the background noise, it’s kind of pointless isn’t it? Dad’s not a prude, he just thinks smoking is really, really stupid and, at best, impolite in crowds. Besides, I hate to break it to you (or no… um, maybe I don’t), but you’re not Radio Raheem. No-one wants to hear what you’re listening to (This holds especially true if it’s One Direction, but still, I’m sure you catch my drift). Noise cancelling earbuds are earbuds that cancel out (see what I did there?) background noise. Most of them do this via a scientific phenomenon called phase cancellation. In simple terms, noise cancelling earbuds pick up the sound waves created by ambient noise via small microphones and flip those waves by 180 degrees. The point of all this is not to show you how clever I am (well, ok, maybe a little bit), but to clear the confusion that surrounds noise cancelling earbuds and what they do. The two terms are sometimes (wrongly) used interchangeably, and some manufacturers may even claim that their earbuds are noise cancelling when they are, in fact, noise isolating.
This is something you should be aware of, as you probably want to avoid shelling out the big bucks on a pair of earbuds you have the wrong impression of. Of course, whether noise cancelling earbuds are better than noise isolating earbuds or not is beside the point here. The point is that noise cancelling earbuds have a mechanism which allows them to actively cancel out background noise via phase cancellation.
Noise isolating earbuds, on the other hand, have no such components and simply block out background noise by physically sealing the ear canal. So with that out of the way, let’s have a look at the top five products on the market today. Not only are they the highest-rated noise cancelling earbuds on Amazon, but they’re widely regarded as best in class.


Their noise cancellation capabilities are second to none, and they easily outperform the competition.
They also have an “aware mode“, which allows you to turn off the noise cancelling function. At ? 260 this is particularly steep, especially if you’re going for the Android version, which doesn’t have the basic functionality of volume control. The size of the QC’s battery pack can also be awkward, especially if you like – ahem – sporting your QCs when you’re off for a jog. Sennheiser CXC 700 On paper, the Sennheiser CXC 700 noise cancelling earbuds look like a great alternative to the Bose QC20s. Even better, they have a passive noise cancelling mode, which means you can still use them even if you’re out of battery. The earbuds forgo a rechargeable battery in favour of an AAA battery that lasts a mere 16 hours of continuous playback. The earbuds do feature a passive noise cancelling mode, so this doesn’t seem like too much of a problem. That being said, there’s still a pretty chunky remote control cum battery housing unit to contend with. The worst thing about the CXC 700 earbuds, however, is their tendency towards sibilance, which is probably the result of a failed attempt at producing a rich high-frequency spectrum. Phiaton BT 220 NC Even though you might not have heard of Phiaton before, their latest offering – the BT 220 – is still worth checking out. At ?126, they’re cheaper than the Bose QC20s, but still have excellent sound quality and noise cancelling capability. In fact, with a frequency range of 10Hz to 27KHz, they cover way more frequency than you could probably ever hear (trust me on this).
They also boast a “monitoring” function, which allows you to pause the music to have a listen to what’s going on around you, as well as NFC capability (that’s near-field communication, in case you were wondering). On the downside, the BT 220 isn’t particularly good looking, and sports a remote control that’s wired, rather bulky and awkward.
The remote does have a clip, so you can attach it to your clothing in an out of the way area, but this can be a bit of a pain (and who clips stuff to their clothes nowadays anyway?). If you’re after sound quality but aren’t that finicky on design, they offer some good bang for your buck.
The brand name, coupled with the price tag, probably give it an edge over the Phiaton. The earbuds also boast a 4 star rating on Amazon, which seems to bolster the claim that these are noise cancelling earbuds of solid quality. Like the Sennheiser CXC 700 earbuds, the ANC-23s work on standard AAA batteries instead of a rechargeable battery. According to the spec sheet, however, the ANC-23 earbuds can withstand 60 hours of continuous playback before the battery drops dead, which is a nice way to say that they blast the Sennheisers completely out of the water and then some. Still, if you’re not into buying batteries and carrying spares, or if you’re simply a more environmentally conscious kind of person, this might be a deal breaker.
You can snag yourself a pair from Amazon for ?25, which is pretty cool for a big name brand like Sony. They also lack control buttons, so you’ll have to reach for your smartphone if you want to pause playback or answer calls. If your plan was to lie around all day and expend as little effort as humanly possible, this is bad news (but then again, it’s also bad news if you’re going about your day and are otherwise occupied). The reason for this is that the noise cancelling functionality is built in Sony’s line of Xperia smartphones. No awkward dangly box to lug around, and an awesome set of noise cancelling headphones that, at ?25, are a steal.
But if you don’t have an Xperia (or aren’t inclined to buy one), you can most probably get better sounding – albeit not noise cancelling – earbuds for a cheaper price.
All in all, most of the earbuds I’ve considered above perform as advertised – they offer reasonable sound quality and background noise cancellation. So which brand you go for will depend on your budget and the amount of features you need, or can live without. Bose of course remain the brand to beat if you’re looking for the best quality sound, comfort and noise cancellation capability with some nifty extra features thrown in. If you’re on a budget, and don’t mind forgoing cutting edge design or stocking up on AAA batteries, Phaidon and Audio-Technica are both great options to consider. On the other hand, unless you’re a Sony Xperia aficionado or a fan of hissing noises respectively, you should probably steer clear of the Sony MDR-NC31 and the Sennheiser CXC 700.
