Much noise cancelling technology for 'phones has been applied in aviation. Helicopters and light planes have very high ambient noise levels so those noise cancellers are quite powerful. They are not impedance matched for recording/listening stereo - aircraft use high impedance stuff. (600 ohm I think) And high fidelity is not an objective most of the time in that usage.

There are consumer grade noise cancellers for stereo listening but the JVC pair I have is not very powerful in its cancellation ability. It uses a single AAA battery and seems to be ok for airliner cabin levels of noise.
But I doubt it could handle a server farm.

Maybe other brands work better.
But it seems that the market for these would be for stereo enjoyment rather than for mixing recordings so perhaps searching audiophile forums would yield some discussion.
The brown cloud of software malfunction hovers over my head.
