Kenny's Music

Hey DJ's - are you sick of wrecking your headphones (and hearing) by having to constantly bend one side off of your ear? KORG have come up with something you might be interested in! The NC-Q1 headphones are a radical new product from the company that are specifically designed to avoid these inherent problems. Check them out below!

We all know that your most important tools for any performance are… your ears! That’s why we spent years researching the environments where performers – especially DJs - monitor their music in order to develop a whole new level in headphones which combines a unique blend of features to provide a seamlessly integrated and safe DJ experience.

KORG’s NC-Q1 is a very new kind of Bluetooth headphone technology, developed to protect your ears even in very loud environments while delivering unsurpassed high definition sound and noise-less monitoring. Combining state-of-the-art Active Noise Cancelling, incoming sound attenuation and an array of smart features, the NC-Q1 headphones provide a flexible, controllable, powerful and great-sounding experience.

With this unique blend of Noise cancelling technology and high-quality sound, the NC-Q1 is perfect for DJs, drummers, front of house engineers – anywhere that’s hard to tame sound levels.

• Outstanding Noise Cancelling and Sound Filtering
• Attenuation function for very noisy environments
• Smart monitoring with Sound enhancing (Volume/EQ control)
• Clear, precise High-resolution audio with wide frequency response
• Controls that are easy to access, intuitive and flexible
• Bluetooth, Siri/Google assistant, popular CODECs supported
• Hands-free calling with Clear audio and beamforming for clear voice pickup.
• Rechargeable battery; 36 hours of use on a single charge.

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 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.
