Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23BK QuietPoint Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
The Coveted ANC23 features advanced noise cancelling up to 90% of background noise.Includes 3 Soft interchangeable ear pieces with Foam Tips to ensure superior comfort and noise isolation. Sleek inline control box offers on/off switch w/ volume control.

Building on the success of the award-winning ATH-ANC7, Audio-Technica's ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones reduce distracting background noise by 90% while offering the superior sound that makes Audio-Technica a world-leading pro audio company.

Engineered to create a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise, these in-ear headphones feature a miniature microphone in each earpiece that picks up ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.). Electronics in the control box create a noise-cancelling wave that is 180 degrees out of phase with the ambient noise. This wave acts like a noise eraser: it cancels out the annoying sounds that surround you without diminishing the audio you want to hear. The result?a peaceful enclave to enjoy the music or movies of your choice.

Wherever you happen to find yourself-on a busy subway, in a noisy office, or settling in for a long flight-there is no better way to experience audio or immerse yourself a quiet environment. Discover our QuietPoint. And find your own.

5 out of 5 stars   Purchased for a trip
By CNeav on March 15, 2017
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones (ATHANC23)
Pros: So far, as a person that has noticed some hearing deficiency with age, I can say that the clarity of sound is greatly enhanced when in ANC mode!
Cons: Would love to have the ability to disconnect the ANC device for just straight earbud use; providing a more streamlined duel purpose use than just turning it on/off.
Other Comments: Haven't really "used" them yet as the trip is later in the year; but in checking them out I feel as if they are exactly what I expected them to be. Will be anxious to see how long they perform on noise cancelling mode (will carry extra batteries!) during long flights.

4 out of 5 stars   Great noise cancelling headphone
February 26, 2017
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones (ATHANC23)
Pros: This is my first ANC headphone purchase, so i don't have anything to compare to them. They do work great that's for sure. Gave 4 stars beacause cord length is quite short and still get some noise from the cord itself being wired directly to the earpiece (design flaw?). Background noises are either cancelled out completely or are muffled so that I can concentrate on what I'm listening to withoit cranking up the volume to 11. The foam earpiece also helps with fit and noise reduction. Qould have liked to had different foam earpiece sizes instead of the differering rubber ones. All in all a great improvement over other headphones I've used.

Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones (ATHANC23)
Pros: Shocked at how well this worked! Even if the battery only lasts an hour, I love it.
Cons: I haven't had it long enough to comment on battery life. That would be the only downside I could think of. The product works great. They sent an industrial battery with it. Very kind. Suspicious, but generous.
Other Comments: Buy it! Or, buy Bose for $200

Review submitted for Audio-Technica Quiet Point ATH-ANC25 Active Noise-Canceling Headphones (ATATHANC25)
Pros: Noise canceling works well. Used on 6 different planes last week, commuter size as well as larger.
Cons: ear pieces have limited adjustability
Other Comments: Good value. Effective at eliminating airplane engine noise. Actually could hear the announcements fairly well - seems to properly target the constant background noise. May depend on the media you are playing - with an iphone I had to max out volume on phone and headphones for one of the movies I had, but not with another. Both were self-ripped.
