Bestmodo!!! Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9



There's a lot to love about the ATH-ANC9s. They headphones don't quite fit all the way over your ears like some of the others in the Battemodo, which might lead you to think that they'd put uncomfortable pressure on your head or that the noise-cancelation would be lacking. Not the case. The plush leather pads on the earcups are so soft that they don't put much of a pinch on your head. On the inside, the cans have a great, slightly bottom heavy sound that doesn't blow up the clarity or detail on other frequencies. Thanks to these cans we even discovered a new overdubbed guitar track on a Smashing Pumpkins song we've listened to probably 20,000 times. That's the kind of experience you expect when listening to fancy audiophile headphones.

As for the sound of silence, the ANC 9s have three different levels of noise-canceling like the Sonys do—the only difference is that it, in this case, it really works. In fact, when riding home with the ANC9s on one night, the silence was so peaceful that we nodded off and missed our stop. Eternal slumber aboard a horrible, lumbering machine. That's what we were after all along.

Product Description:

Audio-Technica’s ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint® headphones use proprietary active noise-cancelling technology to provide a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise. Delivering noise cancellation up to a remarkable 95%, the ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint® headphones feature Audio-Technica’s new Tri-Level Cancellation™. Mode 1, ideal for use on airplanes, trains and buses, applies maximum noise cancellation to low frequencies. Mode 2, designed especially for use in noisy offices or crowded places, targets the mid-range frequencies, while Mode 3 creates a pristine, peaceful environment ideal for study.

The headphones feature four miniature microphones, two in each earpiece, that pick up ambient noise and create a sound-cancelling signal to effectively block the noise. The ATH-ANC9 headphones also offer a cable with an inline microphone and controller for answering calls and controlling music. The mic and controller support select products, including iPhones, iPads, and many iPods. The microphone has an omnidirectional pickup pattern and it is designed for crisp intelligibility, so your voice will be clearly transmitted without having to speak directly into the mic.

These headphones are designed to offer you crystal-clear sound that makes Audio-Technica the choice of leading artists worldwide. Wherever you happen to find yourself—in the comfort of your living room, in a noisy office, or settling in for a long flight—there is no better way to experience audio or immerse yourself in a peaceful environment.
