We receive several emails a week from headphone manufacturers asking for review time. They really are top kit for music lovers. For audiophiles? Less so. But, I do enjoy my noise cancelling headphones on planes and other noisy places.
Maker of the famous lifestyle favourite Tiviloi Radio has released its own noise cancelling cans into the wild. The Tivoli Audio Radio Silenz active noise cancelling headphones.
Tivoli describes them a: ‘the world’s first active noise canceling headphone to employ wood housings instead of plastic. The real solid wood ear cups, coupled with the high performance 40mm drivers, provide excellent sound quality and low resonance, while remaining lightweight and comfortable to wear. The closed back, on-ear design also rotates 90 degrees and upward for compact, easy transport in the included travel pouch.
Operating on a single AAA battery (included), Radio Silenz can be used with the noise cancellation on or off, or even without a battery. The unique Defeat button temporarily switches off the noise cancelation and fades down the audio, allowing conversation or announcements to be heard without having to remove the headphones, or having to repeatedly switch the noise cancelation off and on again.
With today’s myriad of headphone choices, only Radio Silenz maximizes your listening experience by combing the acoustic advantages of natural wood with the technology of active noise cancelation.
Finishes: Black Ash, Walnut, and Cherry’
We’re hoping for a review set soon.
