The new ATH-ANC1 is designed for unmatched convenience. It folds to a compact size for easy storage and travel in its included carrying pouch. Its active noise-cancelling circuitry is located in a handy external module attached to its connecting cord, for extremely lightweight on-ear wear. The ATH-ANC1 features soft, long wearing ear pads for complete comfort, even on long trips or extended listening sessions.
Like all Audio-Technica QuietPoint headphones, including the recently introduced ATH-ANC7b, winner of a CEA Innovations 2010 Design and Engineering Award, the ATH-ANC1 detects environmental noise using miniature built-in microphones, and applies a corresponding sound-cancelling signal. Although compact, the headphones deliver powerful, immersive sound, thanks to their precision high-efficiency full-range drivers and premium internal components. They’re ideal for traveling, jogging, exercising or any other private listening, and for use with the Apple® iPod®, iPhone TM and iPod touch®, portable music players, computers, in-flight entertainment systems and many other devices.
Unlike some other noise-cancelling headphones, the ATH-ANC1 (and all Audio-Technica noise-cancelling headphones) work even without batteries or when the noise-cancelling feature is turned off. In addition to its handy travel pouch, the ATH-ANC1 comes with a 1.6-foot extension cord, an airline adapter and an AAA battery.
The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC1 active noise-cancelling on-ear headphones will be available January 2009 online or at Audio-Technica authorized retailers at a suggested retail price of $129.95. [December 18, 2009]
