    How exactly does noise cancelling cause migraines or dizziness?

    Did u even put a little piece of tape on the second mic to see if that's the real problem?

    It's a personal thing & it's very uncomfortable if you happen to be afflicted with the sensitivity. Think about how you'd explain what causes motion sickness to someone who never gets sick and doesn't know anyone who does. :( From what I understand, the noise canceling effect conflicts with what the user is actually hearing from multiple sources (i.e. the iPhone earpiece, background noise in the call, ambient noise in the room the user's in.) It messes with their brain. Apologies for the simplistic explanation; there are fancier medical ones.

    3-D movies do it to my eyes. :( :( :(

    Thank God. This is so good to hear. I know it's hard for people to believe that don't experience these problems but they are horrible. Good to know!


    I know that's the problem. I've had my hearing tested and I can't use any type of noise canceling headphones or anything either.

    This is very interesting. I've never heard of such an issue before, but I'm not doubting you at all. I'm glad there is a solution for you!

    Yep can definitely disable it in iOS7. Found the option earlier when I was turning off Parralax (Reduce motion in Accessibility settings)
