How Noise-canceling Headsets Work?

There are two main methods of noise cancellation (although a third shall also be detailed a bit later on) with regards to headsets, earphones and other portable devices. Here’s a bit about them and how they work… 

The first type of noise cancellation basically occurs whenever anything obstructs the inner ear; this has the effect of dulling our ability to hear whatever’s going on around us. If you put your hands over your ears right now, or you stick your fingers in your ears, the background noise will diminish. This, in a very real sense, is a form of noise cancellation. In this regard, any set of headphones that cover the ear, or even the types that sit inside the ear, effectively cancel out background noise and are therefore ‘noise cancelling’.

The second type of noise cancellation is a little bit more complicated. Typically, these headphones cost more money, but they offset this cost by being rather clever and also very effective. The second type of headphones are those that generate a low-level of white noise around the vicinity of the speaker. The white noise, largely inaudible to the Human ear, creates a sort of ‘sound vacuum’ that eliminates all background noise, allowing you to focus purely on whatever you are listening to.

There is also one more type of noise-cancelling headset, which is the bone-conduction headset (sometimes known as ‘bonephones’), these headphones actually bypass your outer ear entirely and go instead to vibrate the tiny bones in your inner ear. Your brain still understands this every bit as much as it would if you were listening through your outer ear (or pinna) but you now have the added option of chucking good old fashioned ear plugs into the equation, whilst at the same time still continuing to use your headphones.

With gadgets like tablet computers, smartphones and MP3 players becoming more and more prevalent in modern society, headphones and earpieces are becoming increasingly commonplace. People are now trying to have conversations, listen to music or even hold video conferences in traditionally loud places.

From busy streets to crowded trains, it has never been more important for people to be able to hear content clearly and easily whilst they are ‘on the go’ – it is for this reason that noise cancelling headsets have become such a popular consumer item in the early 21st century. 


What will make you purchase a kinect, how about because it’s wonderful

Want to Buy kinect? You start here. This website has everything you’re looking for and much, much more.


Ah January. That month where the wheel of the year turns anew, where everything starts again (usually with dried chunder and a mountain of carpet cleaner), where you make all those unfeasible promises to yourself. I never get very far with resolutions. The other thing January is good for is getting out and spending someone else’s money.


I’m talking about Christmas money – its money you can justify wasting. Auntie Gladys sent you £20, great! But who the hell is Auntie Gladys?. You got £50 from Auntie Beryl and Uncle Joseph. You promise to say ‘thank you’ but you never get round to it, its not like Auntie Gladys has Facebook.


So, its time to hit those January sales. You’ve scraped twelve pints of snake-eye and half a döner kebab with extra chillies off the bathroom wall and you wrap up warm in your new coat (because Uncle Bertram is a practical man who felt he should buy you something useful, even if it is about 12 sizes too sodding small!) and head out to any one of the million computer entertainment megastores currently clogging the arteries of town centres like those huge toxic puke deposits that you get for smoking cigarettes (I know, I know, this is the year you’re gonna quit blah blah blah) You clean the house and head on out in your new coat.  Except, when you get there, you find that it’s all a scam! The prices aren’t actually that cheap at all!. In fact, the game you want has sold out.


So you come home, muttering under your breath and wondering where the best place is to Buy kinect, you put those exact terms into Google and now here we are having a nice chat, like old friends. Let me assure you once again that you’ve come to the right place, for the best bargains, best advice and best offers, look no further than this very site. So get ordering and put your feet up.


Oh, you missed a bit of chunder. Over there, to your left

Launch of Motorola Connector Website

This month we are proud to announce the opening of the Motorola connector resource site, is the best resource for all types of Motorola earpieces and connectors. With advice and news of the latest connectors and earpiece styles, is there for you and your questions. Currently with 7 connectors in circulation for an even larger range of radios, finding the correct connector and earpiece for the radio you’re using can be difficult, and that is the reason that the website was created.

Motorola started in the early 90’s with the GP300 series radios and the 2-pin configuration, of a 2.5mm plug and a 3.5mm plug with a 8mm distance between the pins. this method worked really well and was copied by many other companies and used on their radio. This connector was carried on for the CP040 radio, brought into circulation in 2005.

In the late 90’s, the GP340 was brought onto the market. A re-mastering of the multi-pin connector seen on the GP900 and this allowed for a new wave of earpieces. instead of the TX and RX mono style 2-pin connector, the multi-pin allowed for faster programming, VOX control, TX and RX control as well as future proofing for any future accessories.

Using the GP340 model, this inspired Motorola to use a multi-pin connector for all their future radios. When the digital generation came along in the late 2000’s, Motorola created the DP3000 range of radios, that included the DP3400 and DP3600 radio. Instead of using the already widely used GP340 sstyle connector, a newly designed connector was created, primarily to create a new range of earpieces for themselves. Recently Motorola have created the DP2000 range of radios, with another new connector, this increases the confusion of the user, expecting one earpiece to work on all Motorola radios, instead they have a complicated mix of connectors to choose from and select for their radio.

With 3 other connectors available for the Motorola radio portfolio, including the MTH/MTP connector, used mostly on the Tetra radios, the new SL4000 connector, for the slim line mobile phone style radios and the similar, but not interchangeable leisure range single pin connector.

As we have shown above Motorola have a wide range of motorola connectors and earpieces, This new website is designed to guide and assist those people that are confused which earpiece and connector they need for their radio. has information that no other website has, providing a connection chart to match the radio your using with the correct connector and some example earpieces from around the internet.

How have cooking games turned out to be trendy?

Nigella Lawson, Jaimie Oliver and Ainsley Harriott might not be your image of video game heroes or heroines, but nonetheless cooking games are a steadily rising trend. Enduring the current appeal with games based on real-life (The Sims, Tennis, Bowling etc) all baking games are about is, well, cooking.

That could appear pointless, given that real-life equivalent of cooking games (actually baking) are a few things you virtually ought to do every day or else starve, consider how much enjoyment you would get with cooking games. These games can teach formulas, quantities, strategies and also some subtleties that professional cooks have to understand the hard way.

The Cooking Mama series is one of the biggest cooking games about the marketplace. Slightly sexist name aside; the franchise has created titles for the Nintendo DS and Wii, (the console that’s best for baking games.) Handheld devices were originally the format of choice for launching the first cooking games, with Sweet Ange being released all the way back in the time of Game Boy Colour.

Admired in Japan and increasingly catching on in the West, cooking games look set to become another huge thing. With cooking games, you’ll be taught baking skills without wasting cash or making yourself ill. You will learn serenity as some cooking games allow you to produce your gaming gourmet goodness in real time!

Obviously, cooking games hold a component of danger (and not only digital nut traces). Don’t forget to put the feast on when playing your cooking games, then go virtual bowling or fishing and go back to find your dinner ruined. Though cooking games can be tempting as a cheaper option, you will also discover a cooking games dinner to be far less nutritious than a TV dinner.

Say “CHEESE!” Digital Camera and etc…

One of the first things of any practical application I learned as a child was how to put film in a camera. This is hardly unusual for somebody of my generation (I’m 25 now) but it is highly unusual for anyone of the current crop of whipper-snappers about to come into their own.

The digital camera has replaced the film camera. No more needs to be said on that count. This does not mean, however, that film is dead. Far from it, it has its proponents, just like everything else. CD replaced vinyl in mainstream music consumption, yet music fans continue to listen to vinyl (Many people I know I have both) indeed, where would Hip Hop be without it? We have digital films, yet there are still artists that specialize in Super-8 and swear by it.

The thing is, until you can replicate exactly the tiniest specifics of an older technology, you can’t replace it. Not unless you can totally beat its predecessor, performance-wise. When you work with something long enough, you grow to utilize all elements of its performance, even the less desirable ones. Certain tech will become symbolic of a certain time, and periodic waves of nostalgia and trends in fashion will bring it back again. DVD’s are easier to manage/store and superior in quality to VHS, but the former only started to surpass the latter after it became affordable. For a while that was VHS’s biggest selling point over the emergent DVD format. Cassette tape never really did replace vinyl (despite being cheaper) because, though it was more convenient, the performance wasn’t as good. See?

So film cameras produce higher quality images, you can get better models for cheaper than you can their digital counterparts. This has facilitated not the predicted demise of film amongst photographers, but rather a renaissance and promotion of the format to a sort of ‘elder statesman’ status. The same plateau occupied by vinyl records, a format never to die, but one that’s appeal has certainly become more selective.

The new kids are, however, much more convenient. In the old days, you’d take a photo and then have to wait a couple weeks to get it back to find out it was blurry or overexposed. Most digital models allow you to see the image you’ve just taken immediately afterward. That is a lifesaver. A digital camera on your phone is a useful thing, allowing whippet-quick and snappable pictures that can be shared with the world immediately. In short, digital will serve the amateur better. The ability to alter the pictures with relative ease (I am myself fond of creating arty black and white shots) and the ease of use in general has won over the average Joe. Film, however, is far from a dead technology. It remains the domain of the professional and the gifted amateur and is far from lost. In many ways, quality-wise, it is still superior.
