Audio Technica has announced the latest addition to their active noise cancelling line of headphones: the QuietPoint ATH-ANC9. It has three modes is capable of blocking up to 95% of external noise with a single AAA battery. The ANC9 is available now for $349. Read on for more details.
The ANC9 has three noise cancellation modes depending on the environment you are in:. Mode 1 focuses on blocking out low frequencies which is best for planes, trains, and buses. Mode 2 focuses on the mid-range frequencies and is suitable for the office or other “normal” noisy environments. Mode 3 is for already quiet environments, so I’m wondering how this one works…
Another notable feature is the included detachable cables, one of which comes with a built-in microphone and playback controls.
