Between traffic, construction, and the general hustle and bustle of a downtown metropolis, ambient noise on city streets can be nigh on deafening, and the Libratone Q Adapt headphones are designed to let users control the degree to which sounds make it through. The on-ear headphones offer adjustable noise-cancelling technology, with settings designed for every situation that one might find themselves while on the street.

The Libratone Q Adapt headphones employ CityMix, a noise-cancelling technology specific to Libratone. CityMix offers four levels: Level 1 allows 80 percent of outside noise to penetrate, giving users an ambient soundtrack while letting them focus on the sounds around them (which is ideal for an activity like biking.) At the other end of the spectrum, CityMix Level 4 blocks out as much outside sound as possible, reputed offering less than 10 percent background noise behind one's music.
