                     pressure gradient cancellation technology. The method used herein to quantify noise cancellation
                     performance is to measure and compare two frequency response curves. Noise canceling
                     microphones work by discriminating between sounds emitted close to the microphone and sounds
                     from distant sources. The Near Field Pressure Response corresponds to the microphone sensitivity
                     to speech emitted close to the microphone. The Far Field Pressure Response corresponds to the
                     microphone sensitivity to noise emitted at a distance, from various directions at the same pressure.
                     The greater the difference between the Near Field Pressure Response and Far Field Pressure
                     Response curves, the more effective the noise canceling.
