(Audio-Technica | Posted 2007-08-06)
Audio-Technica, a leader in the design and manufacture of consumer and professional microphones, headphones, phono cartridges and accessories for over 45 years, is showing its ATH-ANC7 QuietPoint™ active noise-cancelling headphones. Engineered to deliver superior quality audio in a compact, lightweight design, the ATH-ANC7 QuietPoint headphones employ a miniature microphone in each earpiece that monitors ambient noise (such as airplane cabin or traffic noise) and creates a sound-cancelling signal that successfully reduces distracting background noise by up to 85%.
Ideal for use with MP3, CD, DVD and in-flight entertainment systems, the ATH-ANC7 QuietPoint headphones provide maximum comfort in a closed-back, streamlined design; they feature propriety large-aperture 40 mm drivers with neodymium magnet systems for deeper bass and extended treble, and have a wide frequency response of 10-25,000 Hz.
The noise-cancelling electronics for the ATH-ANC7 QuietPoint headphones are fully integrated in each earpiece, with no need for bulky external modules. The headphones fold flat for easy portability, are powered by a single AAA alkaline battery and can operate in passive mode without the battery. The ATH-ANC7 QuietPoint headphones come complete with a 5.2' (1.6 m) detachable cable (remove for noise-cancelling mode without audio) terminated with 1/8" (3.5 mm) mini plugs; a 1/4" (6.3 mm) stereo adapter; a specialized airline adapter for connecting to in-flight entertainment systems; and a carrying case with attached accessory pouch.
The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7 QuietPoint active noise-cancelling headphones are currently available with a U.S. MSRP of $219.95.
Celebrating over 45 years of audio excellence worldwide, Audio-Technica is a leading innovator in transducer technology, renowned for the design and manufacture of microphones, wireless microphones, headphones, mixers, and electronics for the audio industry.
