Does my iPhone hate my Sennheiser noise cancelling headphones?

My iPhone and my Sennheiser noise cancelling headphones are not playing nicely. Periodically, I get an annoying buzzing/interference noise when I'm listening to music on my iPhone and have noise cancellation switched on.

I live in NYC. I sometimes get this interference while at my desk at work. I also consistently get this noise when waiting for the train, on the subway platform. It happens 100% of the time when an oncoming subway train is approaching. If an express train passes my station, I hear a horrible, loud buzzing sound for several seconds until the train passes.
My gut reaction is that it has to do with the iPhone searching for a cellular signal. Can I make the buzzing stop?
