The Philips Fidelio NC1L on-ear headphones are the first ever Active Noise Cancelling headphones to go battery-free with a direct digital connection to your iOS device via the Lightning connector. 24-bit Digital to Analog Conversion (DAC), amplification and noise cancellation take place in the headphones themselves, ensuring an immersive musical experience that enables you to hear every detail, just as the artist intended.

“The Philips Fidelio NC1L headphones combine advanced Active Noise Cancelling technology with all the advantages of a direct digital connection to your iOS device,” said Wiebo Vaartjes, CEO of WOOX Innovations. “Following the launch of our first Lightning-enabled headphones, the Philips Fidelio M2L, we’re proud to announce another world first. Now you can immerse yourself in authentic sound without distraction, no matter how long your journey.”

Combining high-quality sound, sophisticated design and advanced technology, the headphones include three modes:
● Active Noise Cancelling – for fully immersive noise cancellation
● Open-ear listening – lets in ambient noise so that you can hear what’s going on around you when using the headphones
● Natural voice – a calibrated level of Active Noise Cancellation to enable a more natural and comfortable experience when making calls using the built-in mic

The Philips Fidelio NC1L headphones use a hybrid Active Noise Cancellation approach, with four microphones detecting ambient noise before inverting the signal, effectively cancelling it out and converting background noise to silence. Two ‘FeedBackward’ microphones positioned next to the headphone drivers provide strong noise cancellation at low frequencies, whilst the two ‘FeedForward’ microphones positioned on the outside of the headphone extend the bandwidth of noise cancellation into the mid and high frequencies.

A full chain of audiophile-grade components – coupled with perfectly tuned high-bandwidth and high-precision neodymium drivers – ensures a truly exceptional sound experience on the go. Compact fully foldable and lightweight, the headphones’ memory foam ear pads are designed to provide an ergonomic fit, great comfort and breathability – ensuring you can continue to enjoy the sound the headphones deliver, even over the long haul.

The announcement follows the September 2014 launch of the Philips Fidelio M2L headphones, the first Philips headphones – and one of the first on the market – to have a direct digital connection to your iOS device via the Lightning connector. The M2L headphones are now commercially available across Western Europe and will launch in North America in Spring.
