Use Noise Canceling without playing any audio

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Turn on your headphones.
    2. Connect your headphones to the audio source device using either the supplied cable or a Bluetooth® connection.
      • Your headphones won't establish a Bluetooth connection if the cable is connected.
    3. Turn on the noise canceling function. Check your device manual for more information. Manuals are posted on your model support page.
      • The NC button indicator lights up.
      • As long as your headphones are connected to the audio device, you can turn down the volume, noise cancelling will continue to work, and your headphones won't automatically turn off.

    Note: This may not work if you set the NC/AMBIENT function to the Google Assistant function.

    For models that have the Automatic Power Off feature, you can utilize the noise cancelling feature without connecting audio.
