How does noise cancellation headset works

Noise-canceling headphones incorporate a microphone that listens to ambient sound and calculates a sound wave that will cancel it out.

let’s say You’re on a tedious flight after a bad day at work and lots of waiting and bad food, at last, you board the plane take the seat, and the whirring noise of the motors is getting on your nerves. And so you turn to a pair of noise-canceling headphones and at last a precious, blessed quietness everywhere.

But those headphones aren’t just canceling the sound – they’re making it go away. these noise-canceling headphones eliminate the racket around you armed with a shield of physics of sound waves, and their ability to compensate each other out is that is what called destructive interference.

we all know Sound is made up of waves. And as a sound wave moves through the air, it compresses and expands the air in duplicating patterns. Destructive interference is what happens when a second sound wave merges with the first but this second wave has a pattern that expands the air where the first wave was condensing it and condenses the air where the first wave was expanding it.

When you pile these expansions and compressions on top of each other, you get air that isn’t compressed or stretched. The compressions un-stretch the expansions and the expansions un-stretch the compressions. So the sound wave fizzles out because those spaces in the air that were the sound don’t exist anymore.

Then it recreates that second sound wave, and because of destructive interference, you get silence where there used to be noise.

But wait there will not be total silence.

That second wave has a pattern that’s devised to cancel out noise, but only the noise outside your headphones. So you get your sound bubble, and it leaves whatever you were listening to alone. And noise-canceling technology won’t get rid of all outside noise, but it’s good for the equivalent of about 70% of the noise on a loud flight.

It works best on noise that’s fairly constant, like an Aeroplane engine, because the sound waves are more consistent.

The headphones can counterbalance out that constant droning with a constant, opposite sound of their own.

Noises that are sudden or change frequently in pitch like let us say you are accompanied by a baby crying which would be much harder for the device to react to in time, so it won’t counterbalance them out as effectively.

So the headphones might help get rid of the plane’s droning noise, but the baby next to you, ahh that’s just an addition to your day-long list.
