Such current art headphones significantly reduce repetitive low frequency background noise, such as the air-conditioner noise and jet engine noise, thus making the customer's perceived ambient background noise much quieter than it is. Such headsets normally retail between $150 - $400.
The purpose of this article is to describe a process/technique of making an inexpensive active noise cancelling headset, one for approximately $10 (mfg'rs cost). This would allow such a desirable product to be inexpensive enough to be an impulse buy for most consumers, in particular customers of new Thinkpad and NetVista PCs.
Starting May 2003, most new Thinkpads and NetVista PCs will employ Analog Devices Inc. (ADI)'s new AD1981B AC'97 audio codec chip. This audio codec has been designed to accommodate a stereo mic input, allowing stereo record capability. ADI's main intent of this chip is aimed at allowing an inexpensive solution for a stereo array mic, allowing for accurate voice recognition functionality while a user is seated 12" - 18" away from the array microphone. Normally, voice recognition type microphones are required to be worn on the users head (headset mic), with the microphone located about 1 finger away from ones mouth.
