dear friends,

I'm looking for Active Noise Reduction (ANR) headphones, suitable for industrial use. If there isn't anything specific, are aviation ANR headphones useful to reduce any of the infinite series of common noises of industrial or workshops environments, e.g. grinders noise, hammer bangs etc?

any information is greatly appreciated

Everything that I have seen in the airplane magazines tells me that the noise reduction in active headsets is great. Will the frequencies and pressure levels be the same in industry and an airplane... no... Low frequencies in aircraft and higher frequencies in industry. But I think that a low cost ANR headset would be a first best bet to get your feet wet in this area of protection. All aircraft headsets keep out most of the LOUD noise and thus protect the ears. It is the ANR headsets that reduce the stress level (from noise) and keep the pilot a lot more comfortable over time.

I'm assuming you want to listen to music or some other source as well? Or are you just trying to reduce noise in general?

I recently was in the market for some ANR headphones and after some research and purchases of some low cost ANRs, I went with a passive closed set of headphones. I wanted a low costing, good sound quality, and NR.

Thanks.
