Creative unveils new noise-cancelling in-ear earphones

Creative Technology Ltd. announced an exciting new addition to its range of noise-cancelling personal audio gear – the Creative EP-3NC in-ear earphones. Being a pair of lightweight Active Noise-Cancelling (ANC) earphones with high EP-3NCperformance sonic reproduction and extended battery life, the Creative EP-3NC earphones are ideal for busy commuters and travellers who seek peace and solace in increasingly crowded environments by shielding them from annoying ambient noise by up to 90%.

Designed with portability in mind, the Creative EP-3NC earphones are one of the lightest pairs of Active Noise-Cancelling earphones in the market today, yet endowed with extended use capability for up to 100 hours on a single AAA alkaline battery. Furthermore, travellers are able to continue listening to their favourite music or movies in passive mode without Active Noise-Cancellation even after the battery power runs out – an advantage for travellers who find themselves without extra batteries during a trip.

Tuned Neodymium magnet drivers offer powerful playback for today’s digital music or in-flight entertainment. Combine this with the pristine delivery from high-quality Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) cabling and gold-plated plug, users will find the Creative EP-3NC earphones to be an aural delight, anywhere.

Complementing the Creative EP-3NC earphones’ high performance are intuitive features that make them convenient to use. The push-to-hear Monitor button allows users to hear surrounding sounds without the need to remove their earphones. An integrated shirt clip allows the in-line Active Noise-Cancelling unit to be easily attached to clothing. The Creative EP-3NC earphones also come with three different eartip sizes to cater to most listeners, plus an airplane adapter, an AAA alkaline battery and a soft travel pouch for storage.
