Audio-Technica has introduced its ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint active noise-canceling over-ear headphones, the company’s active noise-cancelling (ANC) model.
The ATH-ANC9 offers new features including exclusive Tri-Level Cancellation selectable noise-cancellation settings, an inline microphone and controller for answering calls and controlling music, and additional enhancements. The ATH-ANC9 purportedly blocks up to 95% of outside noise.
The ATH-ANC9 is the first over-ear QuietPoint model to feature a cable with an inline microphone and controller for answering calls and controlling music. The mic and controller support select products including the iPhone, iPad and many iPod models. The microphone has an omnidirectional pickup pattern (it picks up sound from all directions) and is designed for high-quality, intelligible response.
The headphones fold flat for storage and come with two detachable cables (with and without inline controller), a 1/4-inch adapter, an airline adapter, a hard carrying case and an AAA battery. The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint are available now at a suggested retail price of US$349.95 at http://www.shopaudiotechnica.com, Best Buy Magnolia Design Centers, Airport Wireless stores and other select authorized retailers.
