This also enables any compatible device to deliver up to 24-bit, High Definition (HD) audio, – ‘better than CD’– direct to your headphones and without need for a wire.

The Active Noise Cancelling can be switched off when not required, and you can also use the headphones wired. if you’ve forgotten to charge the battery and need to use them in passive mode.

I like having those choices. Furthermore, it makes the OV-1B more flexible and usbale in more situations.

These tap buttons are also used for fast adjusting of volume and skipping tracks.
