Overview of our technologies

plug & play

Cut through the noise with active, adaptive real time noise cANCELLING technology

Listen to music or videos in airplanes, trains or other loud environments. Alternately, you can wear the Mute just to enjoy the sound of silence. The Mute doesn’t simply rely on padding to keep noise at bay. Highly effective Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) technology actually neutralizes in-coming sound.

This is how it works: A small microphone on the headphones picks up sounds originating from outside of the ear cups. Processors then quickly create out-of-phase versions of the incoming sound waves. Once emitted by the headphones, they effectively intercept and neutralize the sounds before they reach your ears. ANC technology works especially well with continuous low noises such as the roar of a jet engine. Short, clipped sounds that manage to elude the system’s ANC technology are effectively blocked by the MUTE’s closed, well-padded design.

The noise cancelling function works even without a cable at the push of a button. This is a handy option for times when you don’t want to listen to music, but wouldn’t mind some peace and quiet. Double clicking instantly pauses the MUTE’s ANC so that you can communicate without having to take off your headphones.

With a 40 hour runtime on a single battery, the MUTE is one of the longest playing ANC headphones available on the market today. Once the battery is empty, the ANC function ceases to work, but playback is unaffected.

Linear HD drivers for dynamic playback across the entire frequency range

The MUTE uses the same HD drivers already employed in Teufel’s award-winning Bluetooth headphones, the AIRY. Powerful neodymium magnets play back the entire frequency range evenly with slightly emphasized bass. Hear details you didn’t know your favourite songs contained. Low impedance levels allows the MUTE to conjure high levels from nearly any source device.

Built for comfort

For longer wearing sessions, the MUTE offers an especially well-padded adjustable headband and large, roomy ear cups. The headphones’ lightweight designs makes it easy to forget you’re wearing them. That is, if it weren’t for the gorgeous sound pouring into your ears and the fact that unwanted noise has been erased from the aural landscape.

Ready for action

The MUTE comes with a robust transport case, an airplane adapter for in-flight entertainment with two output sockets and a 1.3 mm long cable. Also included is a AAA Energizer battery.

Test the MUTE for up to 8 weeks. You’ll benefit from an up to two year guarantee.

MUTE review of GAME ZOOM
MUTE review of GAME ZOOM
"Along with good ANC technology, the quality of the workmanship and wearing comfort are also very attractive."
GAME ZOOM 13.02.2016
"The headphones did very well in our daily use test (Star Wars, Battlefront, Rainbow Six, Siege, Counter Strike, Global Offensive, Blu-ray movies and audio CDs).The MUTE headphones offer very powerful bass and clearly audible midrange. [...] Virtual surround sound (A feature of the Creative Sound Blaster Z sound card) presented no problem for our test model. We were able to localize our opponent’s footsteps without a problem.”

"Thanks to the pleasant ear cushions, the headphones are well suited for long gaming sessions. Even after over four hours, we weren’t able to detect any pain in our ears which again attests to the great wearing comfort of our test model. The balanced pressure points ensure that the headphones don’t slip with even fast head movements. The MUTE earns additional plus points for the adjustable headband that enhances the comfort.”


"With the MUTE, Teufel created ANC headphones at an interesting price point. Along with good ANC technology, the quality of the workmanship and wearing comfort are also very attractive. In terms of acoustics, one can look forward to powerful bass and a clear midrange. [...] In light of the numerous positive attributes, we’re able to issue a buy recommendation for Teufel’s new headphones without hesitation.“

MUTE review of Allround-PC
MUTE review of Allround-PC
"...a very good, bassy soundstage"
Allround-PC 10.02.2016
"The active noise suppression works reliably and is something one quickly becomes accustomed to. Added to this is a high degree of wearing comfort which makes the Teufel MUTE the perfect companion of commuters and those with heavy travel schedules. Since the headphones are markedly less expensive compared to other models with active noise cancelling, we've given the Teufel MUTE our price/performance award."

MUTE review of ModernHifi
MUTE review of ModernHifi
“A sound that’s solid with a slight emphasis on bass makes it just as suitable for listening to music as its function in noisy environments.”
ModernHifi 24.11.2015
“The over-ear headphones sit firmly on the head which already ensures good passive noise suppression. The padding on the headband and ear cups is again fashioned from protein leather. We’re familiar with this from other Teufel headphones and can vouch for the cuddly-soft material.“

“The Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) on the Teufel Mute is perfect for long journeys via airplane or train, but can be used just as well in an office. Simply press the button on the left ear cup and the active noise suppression is switched on.“

“The Teufel MUTE is more restrained in the upper range and shows its stuff more with a powerful midrange and bass – typically Teufel, in any case. The additional power is used by the Teufel noise cancelling headphones in the creation of a spatial sound image. In this, it constructs a soundstage with depth that enables good differentiation between rows of instruments in the front and back.”

“A sound that’s solid with a slight emphasis on bass makes it just as suitable for listening to music as its function in noisy environments.”

MUTE review of Mac Life
MUTE review of Mac Life
"When it comes to sound and noise cancelling, the first pair of headphones from Teufel to use this technology definitely does a good job."
Mac Life 23.12.2015
"If you’re wearing the Teufel MUTE and press the button on the left ear cup, it becomes significantly quieter. Significantly.”

"The MUTE is a typical Teufel product meaning that the midrange and bass are noticeably emphasized over the treble.“

"All-in-all, the Teufel MUTE offers a very good listening experience and makes it possible to discern individual instruments.”

"When it comes to sound and noise cancelling, the first pair of headphones from Teufel to use this technology definitely does a good job. [...] Especially when it comes to the relationship between price and performance, the Teufel MUTE is an excellent device.”

Help regarding this product
Can I order the Teufel speakers in different colours than those offered?
To realise the very reasonable sales prices usual for Teufel, it is not possible to offer the speakers in a multitude of housing designs.

This circumstance would drive up the production and storage costs, which would result in a significantly more expensive sales price.

A paint shop in your vicinity will surely be able to repaint the speaker housing to your preferred colour without loss of warranty - after expiry of the eight-week right of return.
