SOMETIMES all you want during your morning commute on public transport is a little personal time with your music but it can be difficult shutting out all the noise around you.
This is where Creative's EP-3NC active noise-cancelling earphone come in handy.
Using its built-in microphone, the EP-3NC is capable of measuring external ambient noise and synthesises with a sound in the opposite phase to reduce background noise.
The ergonomic in-ear design acts a pair of passive noise-isolation earphones when the active noise-cancellation is turned off.
The active noise-cancellation feature of the earphones is powered by an AAA-size battery that Creative says can last up to 100 hours.
It can be dangerous walking around with all the noise in the world shut out, especially when you are crossing the street so Creative has included a convenient built-in monitor to let you hear your surroundings without having to take your headphones off.
The EP-3NC is also more than just about blocking out noise as it is powered by 9mm drivers that are designed to deliver deeper bass notes.
The Creative EP-3NC is available now for RM399.
