Good noice-cancelling earbuds to go with a Fiio E11

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

Looking to up my mobile experience (just got a nexus10), and was wondering if anyone can recommend good noice-cancelling earbuds to couple with a mobile amp.

I'm pretty sure (after research) that I'll be getting the E11, but if anyone has a different opinion I'd be happy to hear it.

Re the earbuds, so far been reading through head-fi.org, and the only one that seems up to the bill is the Audio-Technica ATH ANC23 QuietPoint, though they seem to have high microphonics.

Re my audio preferences, I'm not an audiophile, or a bass-freak.. got the Corsair SP-2500 + Xonar Essence ST and I'm perfectly happy with those, so make of that what you will.

As far as I know, there are not too many active noise-cancellation earbuds. There is extra noise-cancellation circuitry that need to be built into the unit, so headphones are the norm for noise-cancellation.

Basically, most typical IEMs or earbuds rely on passive noise isolation.
