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.
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.*)
ANC (Active Noise Cancelling)
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.
PNC (Passive Noise Cancelling)
The adaptable ear cushion (made of viscoelastic memory foam, like high quality pillows) over the ear cup provides not only the highest comfort, but also the best fit around your ear, providing excellent noise isolation not letting any sound in or out, and assuring the microphones placed inside and outside the earcup pick up the appropriate sound for highly precise and accurate noise cancelling. The VH-Q1 goes one step further than most other headphones: the noises we hear come not only from the outside world, but also our own body, transmitted to our ears through the headband of our headphones. By using a special frame structure, the VH-Q1 minimizes these noises and provides an unparalleled noise cancelling experience!
The DJ’s new best friend
Besides effective noise cancelling in extremely noisy environments, the NC-Q1 is ideal for use in a DJ booth. The “Smart Monitoring” and “Sound Enhancing” functions allow users to customize their hearing of external sounds by selecting an EQ preset, adjusting the volume balance, and even choosing the ear from which to monitor (right, left, or both). Cue and monitor external sounds without having to remove any part of the headphones, to maximize your performance while protecting your ears.
Full-Connectivity, Easy control
Compatible with a wide variety of Bluetooth codecs (SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX-xLLC, APTx-HD), the NC-Q1 also gives users remote access to both Google Assistant and Siri, and its dedicated beamforming processing assures the clearest voice signal during hands-free calls, so you are always well connected with the world around you!
The NC-Q1 combines physical buttons and switches with a tactile responsive earcup, for a fast, precise and intuitive control.
With just a simple tap, or hold, it is easy to activate or deactivate monitoring function for one or both ears. “Multi-Function switch” makes it is easy to activate play / pause / rewind / fast forward / skip functions! If you need to remove your headphones, the smart transport control function will automatically stop remotely the audio stream on your playback device and restart it automatically when you put them on again, so you don’t miss a note of your favorite music!
Pristine sound and professional performance
The NH-Q1 features a wide frequency and harmonic response along with a wide dynamic range for a precise, clear and well-balanced sound with a 41mm custom PEEK high-grade film diaphragm for excellent sound. The adaptable ear cushion and over the ear cup provide not only excellent noise isolation, but also the highest comfort.
