Impulsive noise reduction is a special problem raised in active noise control (ANC) systems. The filtered-x least mean square (FxLMS) algorithm is a typical ANC method that has been successfully applied in practical applications. Some variants such as the logarithmic FxLMS and modified FxLMS algorithms have been proposed to deal with the impulsive noise for ANC. However, those methods require considerable computational loading in real-time applications. In this paper, a modified median FxLMS method is proposed for its low complexity to avoid the effect of the impulsive noise. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm has better averaged noise reduction performance than the conventional FxLMS and other order statistics based FxLMS algorithms. In addition, the computational complexity stays the minimum requirement through using only the ordering operation, which is very suitable for the real-time implementation.
