Advanced Features of ADAPT 560

The ADAPT 560 has many advanced features and they are all listed below here:

Using Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)

This headset provides attenuation of ambient noise using Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology. Special microphones optimize speech and reduce background noise.

If you are in a noisy environment but would like to have your own quiet space, you can use the headset itself, disconnected from any device, and simply benefit from ANC. You can activate ANC if the battery is sufficiently charged and if the headset is turned on.

Turning Talk Through on/off

TalkThrough allows you to communicate with your colleagues without having to remove the headset, even when ANC is turned on. Music will be paused or muted.
