According to a press release, Phiaton is introducing the PS 300 NC noise-canceling headphones, featuring the Valves of Heart Sound Technology (VHST), which uses check valves to control airflow in and out of the headphone speakers and—combined with the closed-ear design—“creates an occlusive effect for superior noise reduction.” For more details, check out the full release below.
NO NOISE IS GOOD NEWS: PHIATON UNVEILS ADVANCED, HIGH-END NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES
Sleek New PS 300 NC Noise Cancelling Headphones Provide Ultimate Sound Quality Perfect for True Audiophiles
Irvine, CA – Phiaton, a leader in the worldwide audio industry, expands its award-winning family of high-end personal audio products with the new PS 300 NC noise canceling headphones. The PS 300 NC provides unsurpassed, high-end quality and luxurious design for the discerning consumer who demands the most superior music listening devices available today. Unlike many competing headphone models, the PS 300 NC still plays audio even if the Noise Cancelling battery dies. It also features a convenient mute button so users do not need to remove the headphones to hear outside sounds. The PS 300 NC ($299) is now available at www.phiaton.com and other online stores.
Phiaton’s noise cancelling headphone technology is an ideal feature for travel on noisy airplanes, as it helps to block out the outside noise generated from the aircraft engines. It is also perfect when used on any mass transportation vehicle with low frequency noise. The PS 300 NC takes music appreciation to the next level with its noise cancelling technology that delivers a powerful bass sound and wide frequency range.
Jong-Bae Lee, Chairman of Phiaton Corporation, said, “As a leader in the global audio industry, Phiaton is committed to providing consumers with the most technologically advanced and stylish personal audio gear – from high-end headphones and earphones to music docking stations. The new PS 300 NC headphones provide ultimate listening quality with our patented noise cancelling technology that novice music listeners as well as hard-core are audiophiles are sure to love.”
The PS 300 NC provides up to 18 hours of listening time on its rechargeable lithium-polymer battery. Phiaton ships the headphones with an extra battery (a $50 value) as well as a battery charger. The battery charger also works in conjunction with a USB cable, allowing users to charge the battery with a PC, laptop or from nearly any location.
The PS 300 NC features Phiaton’s patented noise cancelling VHST™ -- Valves of Heart Sound Technology -- that provides deeper, richer low tones from a compact headphone design. VHST utilizes check valves that expertly control airflow in and out of the headphone speakers. This, in combination with the rear enclosure and closed-ear designs, creates an occlusive effect for superior noise reduction.
When the PS 300 NC is worn, the ear pads contract, exerting pressure on the front of the speakers. Phiaton’s VH Sound Technology reduces air pressure and transforms incoming noise into reversed phase signals that cancel unwanted noise. This allows real production values to come through with greater clarity. The PS 300 NC also features an adaptive acoustic impedance control for ideal sound in any mode (noise cancelling on/off), a finely tuned frequency balance and soft bass response.
The PS 300 NC features Studio Grade 40mm Electrodynamic Drivers, 98dB Sensitivity, 32 Ohm Impedance and a maximum input power of 1000 mW. It offers an impressive Adaptive Acoustic Impedance Control bass control switch that is located on the bottom of the headphone housing. This controls the acoustic impedance inside of each enclosure and the bass sound can be changed at the user’s desire. Phiaton recommends users have the bass control on when the noise cancelling mode is activated.
The ultra lightweight 5oz. (140g) PS 300 NC headphones are available in an elegant Black color with Champaign trim. Comfort features include an adjustable headband, genuine leather housing and a soft ear cushion design that seals the headphones to a user’s head providing superior audio quality. The PS 300 NC headphones provide an audio cable with mute button. Unlike competing headphones, the PS 300 NC folds in two steps for a compact traveling experience. It also comes with a sleek, portable carrying case to protect the headphones.
The PS 300 NC is sold with a gamut of accessories including: an extra rechargeable lithium-polymer battery; a 6.3mm stereo gold-plated plug adapter; and a dual-plug adapter that converts a single headphone plug to dual jacks for connection to some in-flight audio sources. It also comes with adapter clips, a cradle charger with USB cable, an audio cable and an AC/DC adapter.
