Audio-Technica Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Audio-Technica is now shipping its ATH-ANC700BT QuietPoint over-ear wireless active noise-cancelling (ANC) headphones, which feature the company's latest advancements in ANC technology to deliver superior noise-cancelling performance and audio quality, along with improved wireless convenience.
The ATH-ANC700BT employ a newly-developed active noise cancellation system that operates in a wider frequency range in the low through midrange frequencies than typical ANC designs, and provides a greater degree of noise cancellation. It also provides improved isolation for better cancellation outside the active range. This enables the headphones to have much more effective noise-cancelling performance by responding to and cancelling a wider range of outside noise.
The ATH-ANC700BT employs large 40 mm drivers for powerful, wideband frequency response from 5 Hz - 40,000 Hz. The headphones support Bluetooth AAC, aptX and SBC codecs and can deliver Hi-Res Audio compliant playback from audio sources when connected with the included 3.5 mm cable. The ATH-ANC700BT provides up to 25 hours of battery life in ANC and Bluetooth mode via its USB charging port. It can also be used in wired mode if the battery runs down or to listen with a wired music source.
Available now in a Matte Black finish (Gray finish available in August), the ATH-ANC700BT comes with a pouch, a USB charging cable and a standard 3.9-foot (1.2m) cable with a 3.5 mm jack.
