Re: QC30 for Communication
@thersites the QC30 do cancel noise still during calls... the problem is, due to the mic issues and the "sidetone" feature, outside noises get sucked back into the picutre. So basically your outbound audio is overwhelmed without background noises amplified to ridiculous levels, which is bad enough for the people on the other end of the calls--but then, due to sidetone, that same outbound audio is also fed into your own ears. This feature is meant to prevent you from accidentally shouting in public, because without it and with outside nosies blocked, you can't tell how loud your voice actually is. To simulate that, have a friend put on any headphones (ANC or not) and turn up some music to just barely comfortable levels and ask them to try to talk to you. Because they can't hear their own voice, they're going to be yelling at your. Sidetone was designed to help prevent that, but unfortunately the mics and/or outbound audio software is making that unfortunate.
EDIT oh there's a new firmware? cool, I'll check it out. But yeah, not expecting any difference, given the change log. Low frequency ANC changes are intruiging.
