Audio Technica ATH-ANC9

 

A decent noise-cancelling effort from Audio Technica, but there are more effective options

Dynamic performance ; Good energy

Noise-cancelling could be better ; Can get tiring after a while

Goondu review: Audio Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint

 

All the original attributes - the great sound, the portability and solid build - will help make the ATH-ANC9 another firm favourite for travellers looking for a pair of noise cancelling headphones.

The microphone and added iPhone controls will delight Apple users, as will the more highly-rated active noise cancelling. But all the original attributes – the great sound, the portability and solid build – will help make the ATH-ANC9 another firm...

Audio Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint

 

The Audio Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint headphones deliver quality audio in passive and active modes, but noise-cancellation performance is not in line with the price.

Deep bass response, with no distortion at top volumes. Lightweight, comfortable construction. Outputs audio in passive mode. Removable cables—one with inline microphone and remote.

Slightly overpriced. Noise cancellation mics sometimes allow low transient sounds into in-ear mix. Doesn't ship with a rechargeable battery.

Audio Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint® Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones

 

Audio Technica's ATH-ANC9 Over-the-Ear Headphones don't have an overly heavy duty look to them, which makes them unassuming and clean looking. But, of course, headphones are about functionality. Read our review to see how they functioned.

ATH-ANC9

 

Audio-Technica's top noise cancelling headphones do an excellent job of blocking outside noise. They also sound musical and detailed, but this is only true when noise cancelling is activated -- with no battery boost they're flat and lifeless.

Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 HEADPHONES

 

The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 are great-sounding, comfortable headphones. They deliver decent performance all-around, with moderate-to-average noise isolation and little sound leakage. The button layout is unfortunately not the best, and the mostly...

Audio Technica ATH-ANC9

 

The ANC9s sound great, and even better when noise cancelling is active. Memory foam creates a comfortable fit, but it's just a shame that you need to keep AAA batteries handy to get the most of out them.

Excellent, even-handed sound ; Great noise cancelling ; Generous sale pack

Non-rechargeable battery

The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9s are a great-sounding pair of noise-cancelling headphones, but you'll have to keep a packet of AAA batteries handy if you want to get the most out of them. This will gall some music lovers, especially when Audio-Technica is...

Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 Review: Noise Cancelling on the Cheap

 

At $199, the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 headphones are comfortable to wear and great to listen to. The best feature by far is the adjustable active noise cancelling, as the modes let you maintain your peace whatever environment you're in. However, they're...

Comfortable, over-ear design for long listening sessions ; Three modes of active noise cancellation ; Balanced sonic profile

ANC circuit powered by AAA battery ; Lacks automatic-shut-off feature for ANC ; Design doesn't wow

The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 headphones offer balanced sound without any frills but with superior noise-cancelling performance.
