Is your current communication headset not working out for you? Do you find yourself raising the volume on your headset in order to hear the person with whom you are trying to communicate? Then, perhaps you will find this report useful. It describes active noise control and how it is currently being used in headsets to reduce the ambient noise from your surroundings, enabling you to lower the volume on your headset, reducing your noise exposure from your ambient surroundings and from the headset itself, and lowering your risk for developing noise-induced hearing loss. By the end of this report, you should understand the principle behind active noise control and how it is being employed in communication headsets. You will then be able to make an informed decision, based on your type of noise exposure, about whether an active noise control headset is right for you, and which type might be best for your work situation.
