Active Noise Cancelling

Posted 02-16-2010 at 04:49 PM by Naps
Is quite dangerous I have to say.

Last week when I was browsing forums while wearing my newly bought Bose Noise Canceling Headphones. A short moment after I sat down, I heard this faint alarm sound under the music. Thinking that it was just another car alarm going off, I ignored the sound and continued to do my routine forum check in the morning.

A few minutes, I hear banging on my door, when I answered it, I almost fell down the the ground. 2 firemen stood outside my door, beaming down at me. At this point I was beyond confused, "Is something wrong?" I asked them.

"Did you not hear the fire alarm going off?" One of them spat at me. It was then I remembered that faint "car alarm" I heard was actually the build's alarm. Good thing it was only a fire drill and there was no actual danger. I got a fine for skipping a fire drill, and potentially getting myself burnt alive.

Lesson learned, don't ignore background sounds when wearing active noise canceling headphones.
