Paradigm Electronics Inc. has revealed its H15NC and H15 on-ear headphones, part of the SHIFT Series.
H15NC Active Noise Canceling Headphones reduce engine noise from planes, trains and automobiles. Both headphones deliver the full audio spectrum to the ear with unbelievable clarity and perfect tonal balance. With in-line remote and microphone, they are compatible with Apple iPods, iPhones, iPads, as well as most mp3 players, smart phones, laptops, PCs and home stereo equipment.
Paradigm has its own audio research and development facility, complete with a 36,000-cubic-foot anechoic chamber for taking accurate sound measurements. The company has multiple double-blind listening rooms used to test every product. In the course of the design, Paradigm designers employ an advanced Bruel and Kjaer Head and Torso Simulator (affectionately named Angelina) that acts as a human simulator, measuring sonic properties and the effect of sound on the ear, while helping with ergonomic design and perfecting frequency response.
H15NC headphones feature a proprietary active supra-aural noise canceling technology. Its dual microphone design uses sophisticated mathematical algorithms to deliver a completely silent and distortion-free noise floor. The H15NC’s onboard user interface with LED indicators allows easy access to the Noise Cancellation feature. Supple breathable leather earcups (H15NC) with Comfort-Tilt adjustments and unique Flexi-Point sliding adjustable headband on both models were purpose designed and rigorously tested for comfortable extended listening.
