These headphones provide both an immersive 3D audio experience while employing active noise cancelling technology. Meet Ximalaya headphones.
Ximalaya Headphones, 3D Smart and Noise-Cancelling
These over-ear cans have both beauty and brains. The exterior features a simple and minimal exterior available in black, white, and gold while the interior delivers high quality sound with some of the best bells and whistles.
Ximalaya is designed to deliver a balanced and open soundstage that is both fully immersive. The headphone’s inner hardware utilizes a 3D Digital Signal Processor (DSP) chip with unique reverberation algorithms and Head Related Transfer Function to turn your stereo audio source into 360-degree sound. For that reason, Ximalaya headphones can be used for with VR headsets for a life-like experience. A multi-chamber built into the ear cups is engineered to help produce a more expansive soundstage while the ergonomically angled speakers paired with a honey comb design enhance the natural acoustics of the headphone.
Opening your soundstage isn’t all Ximalaya can do for you. The classy looking cans are active noise-cancellation (ANC) capable. Built with special noise-cancelling technology these headphones differ from other ANC cans by analyzing background noise and neutralizing its frequencies with opposing wavelengths in your source audio. This is said to eliminate the “white noise” buzz you hear when engaging ANC technology in other headphones – allowing you to enjoy your music unbothered.
One thing to note is that these headphones are noise-cancelling, but not wireless. Often, customers are assuming an ANC headphone is automatically wireless. IMHO, this misconception occurs thanks to the popular BOSE QC 35 and Sennhesier Momentum 2 Wireless. Both feature ANC technology with wireless capability.
That being said, Ximalaya headphones are wired. This means you get more time to use ANC – 55 hours to be exact. The noise cancelling peak is up to 25 dB with a bandwidth of 20 to 1,000 Hertz. Other specs include a frequency response range of 12 to 20,000 Hertz using 40 mm drivers on an impedance of 32 ohms.
Ximalaya can be used with your music, while playing VR, or watching movies for a more immersive experience. You can snag a pair via Indiegogo at $99 before it hits the market at $249.
