"buy 'em" for the price and comfort they are great

by fdoamerica on 8/12/2011

I dumped my JVC HANC100 Noise Cancelling Headphones (Not Recommended at all) and bought these Audio Technica ATH-ANC23. I shopped around and found that Amazon had the best price (great shipping service and excellent customer care.) I am writing this review after using these Audio Technica ATH-ANC23 during a 16 hour flight to Australia. Here is the rundown: 1. they are comfortable, 2 relativity effective in noise reduction (not the best I have used but very good considering the price) 3. they have very good sound reproduction and finally 4. the AAA battery lasts and lasts. Wait #5. the down side --- they are a hassle to put away and store .... the wire that is used does not fold well and the manufacture took no thought on a design that would "put away easily"... they are a hassle to store away... IF this was not such a sore spot with me I would give these units 5 stars... that said "buy 'em" for the price and comfort they are great.

Product Overview

ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint® Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones reduce distracting background noise by up to 90% while offering the superior sound that makes Audio-Technica a world-leading pro audio company.

Engineered to create a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise, these in-ear headphones feature a miniature microphone in each earpiece that picks up ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.). Electronics in the control box create a noise-cancelling wave that is 180° out of phase with the ambient noise. This wave acts like a noise eraser: it cancels out the annoying sounds that surround you without diminishing the audio you want to hear. The result…a peaceful enclave to enjoy the music or movies of your choice.
