Audio-Technica is expanding its QuietPoint wireless active noise-cancelling headphones lineup with the introduction of its new top of the line over-ear ATH-ANC900BT, plus the over-ear ATH-ANC700BT and ATH-ANC500BT. These are the best ANC headphones Audio-Technica has ever produced, and there are plenty of reasons why…
New Noise-Cancelling Technology:
The ATH-ANC900BT features Audio-Technica’s new digital hybrid active noise cancellation (ANC) technology, which uses multiple microphones and exclusive noise-isolation techniques to deliver the highest degree of ambient noise reduction of any QuietPoint model, along with exceptional audio quality. The microphones feature a new digital feedback and feed-forward design. This eliminates the possibility of picking up any unwanted audio signals that could affect noise-cancelling performance.
The headphones’ touch and swipe control system offers an ergonomic, easier way to regulate volume and control media playback in compatible devices. In addition, a switchable quick hear-through button that gives wearers the choice of hearing environmental sounds for safer use outdoors or blocking them for more private listening.
Top Quality Components:
The ATH-ANC900BT utilizes premium internal components including large-diameter 40 mm drivers with a DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating that delivers exceptional detail, transient response and dynamic impact. The ATH-ANC900BT is Bluetooth 5.0-compatible and supports Bluetooth aptX®, AAC and SBC codecs. It’s also able to deliver Hi-Res Audio playback from audio sources when connected with the included cable. The headphones are compatible with Audio-Technica’s new AT Connect app for iOS and Android, which enables the ATH-ANC900BT’s operation to be personalized with functions like tailoring the noise-cancelling for optimum performance in different environments.
The ATH-ANC900BT provides up to 35 hours battery life with both Bluetooth and noise-cancelling, and can also be used in wired mode. Its fold-flat design allows easy portability. It comes with a 1.2 m standard cable, USB charging cable, hard carrying case and airline adapter.
The ATH-ANC700BT QuietPoint® wireless over-ear headphones combine Audio-Technica’s proprietary active noise-cancelling technology with Bluetooth® wireless technology and convenient touch and swipe controls built into the earcup. The headphones’ noise-cancelling functionality is driven by a four-microphone (two in each earcup) multi-feedback system for wide-range performance that greatly reduces environmental noise.
The ATH-ANC700BT headphones feature 40 mm drivers that not only supply amazing wireless audio reproduction, but are capable of 5 – 40,000 Hz high-resolution frequency response when used with the included 1.2 m standard audio cable with 3.5 mm stereo mini-plug. Memory-foam earpads (firm internal layer, soft outer layer) provide excellent sound isolation and amazing comfort, and the earcups fold in to make the headphones more compact and easy to transport.
An internal lithium polymer rechargeable battery powers the headphones, giving users approximately 25 hours of continuous Bluetooth and ANC use (1,000 hours on standby) on a full charge.
The over-ear ATH-ANC500BT combines noise-cancellation and wireless Bluetooth with exceptional value. It features 40 mm drivers for clear, impactful audio and advanced ANC circuitry to attenuate outside noise. The ATH-ANC500BT’s controls and mic are built into the earcup for easy handling of calls, music playback and volume adjustment. Available in black and navy, the ATH-ANC500BT offers up to 20 hours of continuous Bluetooth and noise-cancelling use on a full charge (via its included USB cable) and can be used in wired mode if desired. Its fold-flat design makes it ideal for travel.
