We took a closer look at Monster’s new Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) headset for both gamers and general use.
Although the Monster brand has long promoted itself with its laptops, it continues to expand its product line, offering all kinds of hardware that gamers will actually need. One of the brand’s latest products, the Monster Pusat Wave ANC Earphones, also offers Active Noise Cancellation, a highly sought-after feature for gamers.
Although the Monster Pusat Wave ANC is a gaming headset, it is actually well designed for general use. Thanks to the ANC technology inside, it becomes a model that can work for someone who wants some silence in a noisy environment.
The Monster Pusat Wave ANC has large ear cups and full ear cushions. Thus, it covers the ears well, and even provides sound insulation alone. But when you activate the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) system, you see its true power.
When you turn on this feature with the ANC button on the headset, the microphone on the device detects surrounding sounds. Then, speakers inside the earphones emit opposing sound frequencies, which will neutralize those frequencies. It should also be said that the ANC feature used by Monster in this headset works to very strong effect. In other words, it is very successful at canceling noise.
