Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 noise cancelling earphones

 

These $99 earbuds block out external noise and boost your music's quality

Excellent noise cancellation for earbuds ; Good passive noise cancellation

Noise cancellation circuit is heavy ; Ear-buds are comparatively bulky

Audio-Technica has brought the price of noise cancelling earphones sharply down with the ATH-ANC23. These earbuds have decent sound quality and good noise cancellation, although the buds' large size and the heavy weight of the noise cancellation...

Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones First Look

 

The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23s can be used in active (with up to 90% of outside noise eliminated) or passive mode and should have everything you need for those long overseas trips.

Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 HEADPHONES

 

The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint are great-sounding in-ear headphones. They have balanced audio reproduction that works well with most music genres but a very ordinary in-ear design that may not be comfortable for some. The poor active noise...

Great audio reproduction. ; Very little leakage.

Poor noise isolation. ; Lacking control options. ; In-Ear design may not be for everyone.

Audio Technica ATH-ANC23

 

The ANC23s are our new favourite pair of headphones, at this point, with excellent sound and a noise-cancelling feature that you don't often find at this price.

Great sound ; Noise-cancelling ; Affordable

QuietPoint box heavy enough to tug buds from your ears ; AAA battery needs replacing

Despite the bulk of the noise-cancelling box, the ANC23s are our new favourite pair of headphones, in this price range. You will have to replace the AAA battery every so often, but it's worth it for the excellent sound Audio-Technica's QuietPoint noise...

Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 Noise Cancelling In-Ear Headphones (Playback 41)

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Surpisingly good noise reduction

 

If you are going to sit in the back of a B747 for 12 hours or so you need some noise reduction, these are great - comfortable, quiet and good sound reproduction. All in all, a great purchase.

I bought these to replace a pair of damaged over-the-ear noise cancelling headphones which I used for travelling. These earbuds are surprisingly good at reducing the aircraft noise while reproducing mp3s and aircraft movie audio ; A big plus is that...

Not quite as much passive or active noise reduction as my previous over the ear muffs but more than adequate for my purposes
