Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint(R) Noise-Cancelling Headphones With Tri-Level Cancellation(TM)

Products entered for Innovations 2013 are judged by a panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media. The entries are judged based on engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, the product's intended function, use and value and other attributes.

The ATH-ANC9 (SRP: $US 349.95) blocks up to 95% of outside noise while delivering superlative sound. Audio-Technica's Tri-Level Cancellation provides three preset filters for noise reduction over a wide range of environmental noise conditions. Mode 1 is ideal for use on airplanes, trains and buses and applies maximum noise-cancellation to low frequencies. Mode 2 is designed for use in noisy offices and crowded places, and targets midrange frequencies. Mode 3 is best for already-quiet locations like libraries.

The ATH-ANC9 features a cable with an inline microphone and controller for answering calls and controlling music playback. The mic and controller support select products including the iPhone (News - Alert)™, iPad® and many iPod® models.

The ATH-ANC9 has comfortable replaceable memory foam earpads and its precision 40 mm drivers and electronics provide clear, natural full range sound. The ATH-ANC9 also works when the noise-cancelling function is turned off, and operates in passive mode without batteries. The headphones fold flat for storage and come with two detachable cables, a hard carrying case and accessories.

Celebrating "50 Years of Passionate Listening" in 2012, Audio-Technica is renowned worldwide for a broad range of consumer and professional audio products, including high-performance headphones, microphones, wireless systems, turntables and phono cartridges.
