Audio-Technica Consumer ATH-ANC50iS QuietPoint Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones Overview
With Audio-Technica’s coveted high-fidelity sound quality, noise reduction up to 87%, and a detachable cable with in-line mic and controls for answering calls and controlling music, the ATH-ANC50iS provides a versatile, yet very affordable, entry into the world of QuietPoint. The heavily padded earcups are designed to fit snuggly but comfortably over your ears, resulting in excellent passive noise cancellation. Flick the switch on the left earcup and the active noise-cancelling technology will kick on, effectively blocking environmental noise – use it when listening to music or to just give yourself some peace and quiet in noisy places.
Connect the ATH-ANC50iS headphones to your favorite portable device using the 1.2 m (3.9') cable with in-line control and microphone, which lets you answer calls and handle playback (play, pause, fast-forward, reverse, next/previous track) of music and video. The high-quality, omnidirectional mic ensures clear transmission of your voice without requiring you to speak directly into the mic. The headphones also come with an airline adapter, AAA battery and a zippered protective pouch.
Audio-Technica's QuietPoint headphones use active noise-cancelling technology to reduce distracting background noise, providing an exceptionally comfortable and restful listening environment in areas with high ambient noise. Active noise-cancelling headphones have components not present in ordinary headphones.
Noise-cancelling headphones feature a miniature microphone in the earpiece that picks up ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.)
Electronics in the ear piece 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.
