H15NC Headphones

Active Noise-Canceling & Noise-Isolating On-Ear Headphones

Designed for life. Endorsed by science. While celebrity endorsements have made headphones a fashion statement, sound quality is often overlooked. We think headphones should sound as good as they look.

Design Features


Comfort-Tilt™ adjusts to ear contours ensuring a noise-isolating seal.


Flexible headband accommodates a full range of head sizes without adversely affecting the frequency response curve. ‘Just-right’ compression fit ensures comfort during extended listening sessions.

Fine Adjustment

FlexiPoint™ slider, incrementally indexed to accommodate varying head sizes.

The Inside Story

Three layers of contoured foam: Memory foam provides a layer of comfort, high-density foam prevents low-frequency “bottom out” and the closed-cell layer isolates and attenuates background noise. 

Paradigm's Seal of Approval

If the seal between ear and earcup is not perfect, bass performance will be compromised. In fact, you could lose as much as 10 dB (or more) of bass. Unlike many headphones on the market and despite the variations in human ear sizes and shapes, Paradigm’s design boasts a perfect seal. Frequency response is rich, deep, authentic and free from ambient noise and audible distortion.
