Protect your ears:

DJs and musicians are often exposed to extremely dangerous sound levels. Without correct ear protection, even a few minutes of exposure to these dangerous sound levels can lead to permanent ear loss. (Even 5 minutes of exposure to 105-110 decibels can cause irreversible damage.)


The NC-Q1 features an advanced Noise-Cancelling system, utilizing both Feed-forward and Feedback Active Noise Cancelling technology that is tuned to withstand and process the high levels of sound found in many monitoring environments. Where other ANC headphones begin to distort, NC-Q1 delivers Noise Cancelling in extremely loud environments.

Unlike most other Noise Cancelling headphones, the NC-Q1 has microphones on both the inside and outside of the ear cup that accurately suppress a wide read more range of frequencies and auto-adjust according to the external sound environment.
Its powerful attenuation function allows the NC-Q1 to work better than other headphones at minimizing high noise levels = the ideal choice for noisy environments.


The adaptable ear cushion (made of viscoelastic memory foam, like high quality pillows) over the ear cup provides not only the highest comfort, but also the best fit around your ear, providing? excellent noise isolation not letting any sound in or out, and assuring the microphones placed inside and outside the earcup pick up the appropriate sound ?for highly precise and accurate noise cancelling.

With most headphones, unwanted noise comes not only from the outside world, but also the own body, transmitted to the ears through the headband of the headphones. By using a special frame structure, the VH-Q1 minimizes these noises and provides an unparalleled noise cancelling experience!

The DJ's new best friend:

Besides effective noise cancelling in extremely noisy environments, the NC-Q1 is ideal for use in a DJ booth. The "Smart Monitoring" and "Sound Enhancing" functions allow users to customize their hearing of external sounds by selecting an EQ preset, adjusting the volume balance, and even choosing the ear from which to monitor (right, left, or both).
Cue and monitor external sounds without having to remove any part of the headphones, to maximize your performance while protecting your ears.

Full-Connectivity, Easy control:

Compatible with a wide variety of Bluetooth codecs (SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX-xLLC, APTx-HD), the NC-Q1 also gives users remote access to both Google Assistant and Siri, and its dedicated beam forming processing assures the clearest voice signal during hands-free calls, so you are always well connected with the world around you!

The NC-Q1 combines physical buttons and switches with a tactile responsive earcup, for a fast, precise and intuitive control. With just a simple tap, or hold, it is easy to activate or deactivate monitoring function for one or both ears.? "Multi-Function switch" makes it is easy to activate play / pause / rewind / fast forward / skip functions!

If you need to remove your headphones, the smart transport control function will automatically stop remotely the audio stream on your playback device and restart it automatically when you put them on again.

Sooo I bought these to replace my audiotechnica’s that lasted me years, figured I’d shell out more for a nicer pair of headphones, these weren’t it. First off, they sounds fantastic, they also have a really cool feature for turning off noise canceling on one side, in case you’re DJing and wanna hear the crowd. Ever video I saw about these headphones spoke highly of the noise canceling feature, the thing is, in addition to buying these for DJing, I bought these because I’m a coffee roaster and it’s an incredibly noisy job. Whenever I would drop a roast the headphones would turn off or cut out completely, not sure if it’s just how loud it is, or if it’s the heat, but I’ve never had a pair of headphones do that. Totally inconvenient and it hurts my ears whenever it does. Soo that being said, maybe the noise canceling isn’t all that great. Haven’t used them to DJ yet, but if loud noises are an issue it’ll be a problem then too. I guess one more gripe is how noises the headphones themselves are, the noise canceling takes out a lot of the deeper sounds but you hear a squeaking from the left ear cup. Sooo if you just don’t move at all, it’s great. I have reached out for a refund after only having these headphones for a half day. I recommend anything else.
