Qualcomm's New Noise Canceling Tech Doesn't Require a Tight Fit
Qualcomm today announced Adaptive Active Noise Canceling, a new technology in its latest chip designed to power true wireless earbuds. Whereas most earbuds with Active Noise Canceling (ANC) require a tight fit in the ear canal for the feature to work well, Qualcomm's new tech is designed to detect a poor fit and compensate. It also adjusts the ANC to compensate for varying types and levels of background noise, offering different ANC profiles for plane versus street noise, for example. Adaptive ANC is available on Qualcomm's new QCC514x chip for true wireless earbuds.
