Quick overview

We can all agree that the most crucial tool in a musician's toolbox is their pair of ears. Since musicians need headphones to monitor their music, KORG has spent years studying how to create a new kind of headset that not only produces clean high-quality sound but also shields your ears from external noise.

In order to keep your ears safe in even the loudest surroundings, KORG designed the NC-Q1 Bluetooth headphones, which deliver unmatched high definition sound and noise-free monitoring.

  • A cutting-edge noise-cancellation and filtering system
  • Attenuation system built-in for use in very loud conditions
  • Audio with a large dynamic range in high-resolution.
  • Volume and EQ settings provide convenient monitoring and sound enhancement.
  • Up to 36 hours of battery life with Bluetooth connection and a rechargeable battery!

In order to keep your ears safe in even the loudest surroundings, KORG designed the NC-Q1 Bluetooth headphones, which deliver unmatched high definition sound and noise-free monitoring. Incorporating state-of-the-art Active Noise Cancelling with incoming sound attenuation, the NC-Q1 headphones provide a customizable, controlled and powerful experience. The NC-Q1 is ideal for DJs, drummers, and front-of-house engineers because of its unique combination of noise-cancelling technology and high-quality sound.

Tap On, Tap Off

It is simple to activate or deactivate monitoring features for one or both ears with a touch or hold of the right ear cup. This implies that you won't have to remove your headphones to inspect your surroundings, converse with your band mates, accept song requests, or interact with the crowd in a nightclub, for example! Using this function, you'll always have access to the outside world. You're back in full-blown Active Noise Cancelling mode if you tap again.

Pristine Sound and Professional Performance

The NC-Q1 has a 41mm bespoke PEEK high-grade film diaphragm for superb sound and a broad frequency and harmonic response as well as a large dynamic range. Exceptional noise isolation is combined with maximum comfort thanks to the adjustable ear cushions and over-the-ear cups in this headphone.

Designed to meet the most demanding professional specifications, the NC-Q1 headphones reproduce high-resolution audio and include two physical AUDIO IN inputs (one on each side) so they can be connected to any audio player device, mixer, or audio interface.

Highest Comfort, Noise Isolation and Design

The viscoelastic memory foam used in high-pillows is used in the adjustable ear cushion, which conforms to the shape of your ear to deliver the greatest possible noise isolation. Our own body's vibrations are transferred to our ears via the headband of our headphones, allowing us to hear more than just the sounds of the world around us. The NC-Q1 has a unique frame construction that reduces these disturbances and gives an exceptional noise-cancelling experience!

Because of its distinctive chassis design and incorporation of cutting-edge technology and ease of use, the NC-Q1 has also been recognised by the coveted GOOD DESIGN AWARD.

Full Connectivity, Easy Control

Additionally, NC-Q1's beamforming processing guarantees the cleanest voice signal during hands-free conversations and is compatible with a broad range of Bluetooth codecs (SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX-xLLC, APTx-HD) so you are always well connected with the world! Using physical buttons and switches, the NC-Q1 provides rapid, accurate, and intuitive control of the device.

"Multi-Function switch" allows you to play, stop, rewind/fast forward, and skip music tracks with a single touch. Smart transport control will immediately stop the audio stream on your playback device when you remove your headphones and will resume the music automatically when you put them back on, so you don't miss a beat!

The DJ’s New Best Friend

The NC-Q1 is an excellent choice for DJ booths because of its noise-cancelling capabilities. Users may pick an EQ setting, alter the volume balance, and even select which ear to monitor exterior sounds using the "Smart Monitoring" and "Sound Enhancing" features (right, left, or both). For maximum performance while safeguarding your ears, you may cue and monitor external noises without removing any portion of the headphones.

Swappable Earpads

The earpads of the NC-Q1 may be simply removed and replaced with new ones if necessary. Earpads (NC-EP1 BK / NC-EP1 WH) for the NC-Q1 BK / WH Headphones are available separately and are black and white in colour.
