ENC Vs ANC : What’s The Difference?

Active noise cancellation (ANC) and environmental noise cancellation (ENC) are two prominent technologies that enhance our audio experiences in different ways. In this Blog ,we will explore the key differences between these technologies, helping you understand when and where each one shines, and how they are employed in products from Seeken Electronics.

                                       Understanding Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)

Active Noise Cancellation, often referred to as ANC, is a technology designed to reduce or eliminate external sounds by generating sound waves that are opposite in phase to the incoming noise. This cancels out ambient noise and allows you to enjoy audio content without distractions. ANC is widely used in over-ear and on-ear headphones, making them ideal for travel and noisy environments.

                                           Exploring Environmental Noise Cancellation (ENC)

Environmental Noise Cancellation, or ENC, focuses on enhancing the audio quality during voice calls by reducing background noise. It’s a crucial technology in headphones and earbuds designed for clear and uninterrupted communication. ENC analyzes environmental sounds and then generates anti-noise signals to eliminate unwanted noise during voice calls.

Key Differences

1. Use Case: ANC is primarily used to block out external sounds for an immersive audio experience, while ENC is dedicated to enhancing voice call quality by reducing background noise.

2. Technology: ANC generates anti-noise to counteract external sounds, while ENC focuses on voice frequencies and enhances them for better call clarity.

3. Devices: ANC is commonly found in over-ear and on-ear headphones, while ENC is integrated into headphones and earbuds optimized for communication.

Seeken Electronics’ Utilization of Both Technologies

Seeken Electronics understands the importance of providing a versatile audio experience. That’s why our products often integrate both ANC and ENC technologies to cater to various audio needs. Whether you’re enjoying music, participating in video conferences, or making calls, our headphones and earbuds offer the best of both worlds.

Making the Right Choice

When choosing audio products, consider your priorities. If you want to immerse yourself in music and minimize external disturbances, ANC is the way to go. On the other hand, if you need crystal-clear communication during voice calls, look for products with ENC capabilities. Seeken Electronics offers options for every preference.

In conclusion, understanding the differences between ANC and ENC can help you make informed decisions when selecting audio devices that suit your needs. Seeken Electronics’ commitment to delivering high-quality products ensures that you have access to the best audio technologies for any situation.
