Welcome to the future; we have noise-canceling USB-C headphones

We’re getting used to Bluetooth headphones, Lightning headphones, and USB-C headphones. We’ve even got noise-canceling USB-C headphones. Conexant Systems introduced a single-chip active noise cancellation CODEC, CX20888, allowing this to happen. It can cancel with a depth of up to 30dB with a range of up to 3.8kHz. Because it’s a single chip, headphone makers can easily make USB-C noise-canceling earbuds that are affordable. It’s got voice control, too.
