Stow, Ohio - Audio-Technica introduced its ATH-ANC7b headphones today, featuring 85 percent noise cancellation.
The over-the-ear headphones reportedly provide smoother, richer and more natural tonal balance; clear, high-resolution sound, with impactful bass; a detailed midrange; and extended treble and accurate imaging in an immersive soundfield.
The headphones feature QuietPoint active noise-cancellation technology - a miniature microphone in each ear cup detects environmental noise, and a corresponding sound-cancelling signal is applied, said the company. The frequency response is 10Hz to 25,000Hz, with 109dB sensitivity, and 40 mm neodymium-magnet drivers are used.
Audio-Technica also said it has redesigned the ear cups for additional comfort. Other features include two 1.6-meter and 1-meter detachable cables, an airline adapter, a 0.25-inch adapter and a carrying case.
They will be available in August for a $219 suggested retail.
