Just the Music, Nokia Essence Bluetooth Headset
Along with the 3 Symbian Belle smartphones, Nokia added one more product into Bluetooth headset portfolio, Nokia Essence Bluetooth Stereo Headset. The headset promises 99% noice cancellation with its miniature build.
Since Essence does 99% background noise cancellation, you will be able to enjoy the music when you are travelling by plane, train etc. Though the phone supports Bluetooth connectivity, the headset’s plus point is in it supports NFC, which means just a Tap with your phone to pair.
Essence supports the standard call handling and has buttons to navigate across your playlist.
About Noise Cancellation:
If you listen to music using regular earphones and there’s noise around, then you’ll probably have to turn up the volume very loud. Even then, you’ll probably still be able to hear outside noises and might even be doing harm to your ears. Noise-cancelling headsets contain microphones that listen to the sounds around you, then create an opposite sound which is blended in with your music. This “reverse-noise” is intended to cancel out the noise around you. The extent to which this works depends on the quality of the microphones, the responsiveness of the electronics and the quality of the algorithms that create the noise-cancelling effect. With the Nokia Essence each of these ingredients are the best we’ve ever produced.
