Designed for the busy commuters who seek peace and solace in an increasingly crowded environment, the new Creative EP-3NC active noise-canceling earphones feature an advanced active circuitry to cancel background noises. Its ergonomic in-ear design with soft silicone eartips provide excellent noise-isolation even without the need for a battery, offering crystal clear playback with deep bass for use with all digital devices.
The EP-3NC noise-canceling earphones measure external ambient noise, using active noise-cancellation circuitry with its built-in microphone and synthesizes with a sound in the opposite phase to reduce significant background noise by up to 90%.
Its ergonomic in-ear design operates as a pair of passive noise-isolation earphones when active noise-cancellation is turned off. Passive mode functions without the need for a battery.
|Dynamic neodymium drivers
Stylish closed type earphones powered by 9mm neodymium drivers deliver deep bass sound for use with all types of digital playback devices such as the ZEN range of MP3 players.
|Built-in monitor function
The convenient built-in monitor function on the dongle lets you hear surrounding sounds whenever you need, without having to take off your earphones.
|Long hours of entertainment
Long battery life of up to 100 hours of music entertainment with a AAA alkaline battery.
|Ideal travel companion
With the airplane adapter and travel pouch, the EP-3NC noise-canceling earphones will be a perfect travelling companion to keep you entertained onboard.
As for the sound, because they physically and by frequency are designed to cancel out background noise you can only imagine how rich sound is when you've got the Creative EP-3NC headphones on. I would put the sound quality on par with the Creative Aurvana Air that I reviewed only a week or so ago. Bass was huge and treble crisp.
Creative EP-3NC is a must to have if you travel frequently either on foot or on a public transport because the active noise cancellation really works - it's as if the whole world has been muffled.

5 out of 5
Have used normal noise cancelling headphones on numerous flights. They do a good job but I find it difficult to sleep with them on. I therefore decided to try noise cancelling earphones as they allow you to rest on your side more comfortably. The Creative EP-3NC fitted the bill regarding price and performance and on a recent flight I found them to be a great alternative to my headphones.
