Audio-Technica Unveils NC Headphones

12/15/2009 12:25:44 PM Eastern

Stow, Ohio - Audio-Technica today introduced its latest
noise-canceling on-ear headphones, model ATH-ANC1.

The
QuietPoint active noise-canceling headphones, which feature 36mm drivers,
reportedly block out up to 85 percent of outside noise; they detect
environmental noise using miniature built-in microphones, and apply a
corresponding sound-canceling signal, the company said. The active
noise-canceling circuitry is located in an external module attached to its
connecting cord, meant for extremely lightweight on-ear wear.

Frequency
response is listed as 10Hz to 20,000Hz, with a sensitivity of 105dB and an
impedance of 130 ohms. The ATH-ANC1 will operate without batteries or when the
noise-canceling feature is turned off. They can be folded for portability and
come with a carrying pouch.

Suggested
retail is $129; they will be available in January.
