2019 Honda Pilot Noise Cancellation

Are you shopping for a new vehicle and wondering, “How does active noise cancellation work in cars?” Today we will explore how active noise cancellation works as we explore the Honda Active Noice Cancellation™ system. Find out how this system provides a quiet and comfortable ride on many new Honda models with Rockingham Honda.

How Does Active Noise Cancellation Work?

If you’re driving a car, noise cancellation can improve your driving experience. That is why Honda introduced the Active Noise Cancellation™ system. This feature provides a quieter cabin experience so you can enjoy more comfort and less distraction while on the go. See out how it works below:

  • The Active Noise Cancellation™ system detects any “booming” noises inside the cabin that’s a result of VCM cylinder deactivation or exhaust noise with a controller that uses a front and rear microphone.
  • Once a noise is detected, the system emits an anti-noise signal through the audio system speakers. This delivers a quieter cabin by canceling the booming sounds.
  • This system will continue vehicle noise reduction even if your audio system is turned off, so you can still enjoy your CR-V noise-free.

Honda Vehicles with Active Noise Cancellation

Not every model offers the Honda Active Noise Cancellation™ system, but there are plenty of models to choose from that do include this feature as standard, including the:

  • 2019 Honda Accord
  • 2019 Honda CR-V
  • 2019 Honda Pilot
  • 2019 Honda Odyssey
  • 2019 Honda Ridgeline
  • 2019 Honda Passport

You can also quiet the Honda Ridgeline noise, if you move up to the Sport trim or above, where Active Noise Cancellation™ becomes standard. Compare these quiet cabins in person with a test drive at Rockingham Honda.
