Exceptional Sound AND Noise Cancellation

I purchased a pair of ATNC27s approximately 20 months ago and they are still going strong! I have not had any issues with the cord( as you may read in other reviews ) but as it is very thin I take extreme care not yank or snag when in use. I keep it wound around the phones when not in use.

Music/Sound: These headphones sound very good with any genre of music. I have listened to Choral-Polyphonic Classical to Hardcore Electronic Dance music, Acoustic( Flamenco Guitar for example), Pop-Rock, Metal, Big Band, Swing, Cinema Soundtrack, Piano( Baroque to American AM Radio Standards) and etc. The point being these headphones are suitable for all Music Tastes. In my opinion there is a SLIGHT Bass Boost but I must stress it does not adversely affect the Middle Range and Treble(High) parts of the Music. Note: If Active Noise Cancellation is engaged when listening to music--it serves to slightly amplify the sound. This said, I usually listen with it off unless blocking unwanted noise. Either way the headphones sound very good.

Noise Cancellation: Excellent to Superior. My litmus test is not air plane engines but listening in a laundromat with 10 or MORE SpeedQueen Washers and Dryers running simultaneously in Spin Cycle. When this occurs the floor literally shakes. I am serious! The Noise Cancellation reduces that level of noise to a barely audible and very remote sounding whisper esp when used with music yet I can feel the floor vibrating. Sometimes, I take them off to sample the ambient noise level and after nearly 2 years I an still astounded at the amount of noise/sound reduction.

Wear and Tear: I take care of my headphones. I do not throw them around , sit on them or handle them roughly. This said they have fallen on a hard wood floor on a couple of occasions and suffered no damage. I sometimes carry them in my backpack and are jostled and bumped. No harm has been done. The ear pads look as they did when the set was brand new. Point being, take of the headphones and they will last and perform well.

Summary: Simply Very Good Headphones. Good Sound. Good Noise reduction. I am satisfied.

The noise canceling feature works great. ALL outside sounds are reduced to a barely noticeable level, including voice. It is great trying to listen to my music in the factory environment.
The product fabrication leaves much to be desired for the price. After less than a weeks use one earpiece fell off due to cracking of the headband material. A little supper glue and I continued to use.
After 6 months and several tubes of supper glue I have given up on trying to keep the unit functioning and holding together.
Perhaps a stronger material for the head band assembly would make the unit a 5* for the price range.
(up to a year use is selected due to no choices for over 1 month but less than a year)

      Comments:

      Bought these based on a recommendation from a friend. I am not sure why all the others have had complaints. I've had my pair for 2 years now and they look and act like brand new. They are excellent quality - whoever says they aren't is obviously very hard on them. I take care of mine and they are working perfectly. Sound is very good...noise cancelling feature is excellent. For the price, I say these can't be beat. Even the battery on the noise cancelling feature lasts an insane amount of time.
      I highly recommend these headphones. Pay twice as much or more for Bose if you want but I'm definitely pleased I bought these instead.

        Comments:

        2 years later using them in the household, between 3 people, also as part of the recording studio collection to use when reviewing music,
        listening to regular music from smart phone/tablet, gamin on the PC, while gardening, travelling, and where noise cancelling or good quality headphones are required.
        My only dislike was the short cable included, battery life is great when you use good quality rechargeable batteries, and if you look after them after every use "clean them, and put them away in the provided hard case" then you prolong their life by a so much,
        cable got caught and came off MANY times from the headphones, and when i plug it back, they work just as good,
        best part is that when the battery runs out, they can still work "as regular headphones" and therefore they are not useless like some other brands i've had in the past.
        They do need to be looked after and handled not so rough or thrown around, but that's like anything else , look after them and they will last

                Comments:

                The size of this headset is probably about as minimum as possible for over-the-ear type, which is what I wanted in a high-fidelity noise-cancelling headphone.

                Noise-cancelling performance is on par with another major brand in direct comparison test, and sound fidelity, including fine dynamic bass, is every bit as good as well. But the price is significantly less. These are not inexpensive 'phones, but the quality is clearly there, and they are a better value than the over-hyped brand.

                It folds to a very compact profile for storage in its zippered case, with room leftover just right for my little headphone amp.
                They are as comfortable as an over-the-ear headset can be expected to be. I used them for hours at a time on a train ride and was very happy with them in every respect.

                      I've been using these for 3 weeks and am loving them thus far. The noise-cancelling is very good; the audio quality is very good; the build quality is reliable thus far. Overall, I'd say these are excellent noise-cancelling headphones for the price. They can't compare to other noise-cancelling cans that are many times the price, but for 100 bucks, these are very good. Looking forward to using them on an airplane next month.

Use them at work & when I travel. Drown out background noise & help me concentrate writing reports. Comfortable and great sound quality.

                            I have been an Audio Technica user for quite some time now, and I have to admit the ATH-ANC9 headphones are so impressive.

                            1) The new Tri-Level Cancellation is so easy to use and extremely useful.

                            2) The headphones are extremeley comfortable.

                            3) Most importantly, the audio quality: it is second to none. I have tried all the major companies ie. Bose, Beats by Dr. Dre and Sony... Not only the noise cancelling feature is better, the sound quality and bass is simply remarkable.

                              These are awesome headphones that sound amazing! The noise cancellation (I've used them in crowded rooms and on an international flight) is very good as well. The headphones themselves are not too heavy and are very well padded...they did not bother me at all during a 14 hour flight. Running on just a single AAA, the battery life is actually surprisingly good...I keep expecting it to run out but it just keeps on ticking. I use the headphones on my mp3 player as well as my laptop for movies and gaming and they perform splendidly. They are pretty big, though, so that rules them out for shorter daily commutes. Other than that, I really have no complaints!

                                  The balance of frequencies with these are just unbeleivable! Paired with the great noise cancellation system, I will never look back at my old Bose headphones.

                                    I purchased this product with a $70 discount totaling $130. These headphones match my listening needs.

                                    The audio quality is very detailed because I do notice a difference in audio quality as I use it in different devices; from my phone versus my DVD player to watching movies/listening to music. This means the audio quality on my phone is less than 20 KHz but the DVD quality is more or less around the maximum frequency response of the headphones being 25 KHZ.

                                    The noise-cancelation is a great feature when audio is turned on because you can block out most surrounding sound you don�t want to hear. However when audio is turned off, the noise-cancelation feature is not as strong, which means you can hear more outside surround sound. The battery life last great with hours of noise-calculation feature.

                                    The bulky weight and large size of the headphones I am not too positive about. The headband seems to be a little heavy on top of my head. However the ear memory foam snug my hears into the earpiece comfortably. The memory foam will save your head size, which will be customized to your head.

                                    I also like the carrying case because they keep the headphones safe and in place until your next usage. On occasion, I clean my headphones by compressed air for electronics and my wiping them here and there to remove body oil around the earpiece.

                                                  I'm no audiophile, and I don't do a whole lot of musicianship in a studio or on a mixer, but you don't have to be a genius to know that these headphone are quality. The listening experience is wonderful!! The padding on the two earcups and the headband works effeciently for long wearing sessions, the comfort level of the headphones, and the durability. I especially like the fact that you can still listen through these headphones even if the noise cancelling is turned off. These headphones really do block out most if not all exterior noises, not only through the technology of noise cancelling, but also passive noise cancelling.
                                                  Overall, these headphone provide a large stage for your music, and truly emerse you in any genre of music you listen to. They have acceptional fidelity in both the mid and high ranges, and do everything you would expect from a noise cancelling pair of headphones. I would definetly recommend these to anyone who needs a new pair of headphones and is willing to pay for them.

                                                          I bought ATH-ANC7b for myself for when I travel used them a couple of times and loved the sound that they produce. Nice base, with crisp highs and noise canceling. Very comfortable to wear did not make my ears sweat on a 4plus hour trip to Seattle WA. My wife lost her Bose Noise canceling headphones borrowed mine for a trip to England and she won't give them back. We found her Bose and she still won't give them back.

                                                            Like a lot of you, I was doing comparison shopping on some noise-cancelling headphones. I read a LOT of reviews and tried them in different stores. I couldn't tell the difference between these and ones costing hundreds more, so I bought them. I use them primarily on flights and they help me fall into my own little world for the duration. Don't even wake up when those annoying Captains come on to tell me we've reached 36,000 ft (like I care). I haven't used them on an int'l flight yet but I suspect they'll help me stay asleep so I can arrive as refreshed as possible.

                                                                I have had these earphones for about 2 years now. They are pretty much always packed in my bag for plane rides or long car rides. The noise cancelling is great and works amazingly well. While playing music with the headphones and the noise cancelling on, I don't even hear when my wife tries to talk to me in the seat next to me. I will sometimes even use them while vacuuming around the house and the noise cancelling blocks out the vacuum. A great part of these headphones too is that they will still work if the battery dies. They fold up nice and the case is sturdy and helps the headphones while travelling. Plus, the cost is much less than other competing brands. Sound quality is also really good. Ear pads also comfortable, though I do need to adjust where the top pad is resting on long trips.

I have tried Beats By Dre and Bose, but the best combination of precise sound and huge noise canceling is present in ATH-ANC9. They still working after battery runs out (but without noise canceling, of course) and the control cable shipped with product works both with my Nexus 4 android phone and my Ipod / Ipad. Battery life is about 15h with rechargeable NiMh.Awesome.

These headphones provide excellent sound quality sound eliminating 95% of jet noise. Most of the time battery lasts over 15 hours which takes care of most of the flights. Headphone ear paddings are very comfortable, soft and snug. I recommend these to anyone who travels a lot. They are well worth it.

                                                                        This feature almost eliminates the "water pressure" feeling that I encountered with other noise cancelling products. In addition the lower the ambient noise / noise cancellation setting the higher was my perceived overall fidelity of the sound.

                                                                            I purchased a pair of ATNC27s approximately 20 months ago and they are still going strong! I have not had any issues with the cord( as you may read in other reviews ) but as it is very thin I take extreme care not yank or snag when in use. I keep it wound around the phones when not in use.

                                                                            Music/Sound: These headphones sound very good with any genre of music. I have listened to Choral-Polyphonic Classical to Hardcore Electronic Dance music, Acoustic( Flamenco Guitar for example), Pop-Rock, Metal, Big Band, Swing, Cinema Soundtrack, Piano( Baroque to American AM Radio Standards) and etc. The point being these headphones are suitable for all Music Tastes. In my opinion there is a SLIGHT Bass Boost but I must stress it does not adversely affect the Middle Range and Treble(High) parts of the Music. Note: If Active Noise Cancellation is engaged when listening to music--it serves to slightly amplify the sound. This said, I usually listen with it off unless blocking unwanted noise. Either way the headphones sound very good.

                                                                            Noise Cancellation: Excellent to Superior. My litmus test is not air plane engines but listening in a laundromat with 10 or MORE SpeedQueen Washers and Dryers running simultaneously in Spin Cycle. When this occurs the floor literally shakes. I am serious! The Noise Cancellation reduces that level of noise to a barely audible and very remote sounding whisper esp when used with music yet I can feel the floor vibrating. Sometimes, I take them off to sample the ambient noise level and after nearly 2 years I an still astounded at the amount of noise/sound reduction.

                                                                            Wear and Tear: I take care of my headphones. I do not throw them around , sit on them or handle them roughly. This said they have fallen on a hard wood floor on a couple of occasions and suffered no damage. I sometimes carry them in my backpack and are jostled and bumped. No harm has been done. The ear pads look as they did when the set was brand new. Point being, take of the headphones and they will last and perform well.

                                                                            Summary: Simply Very Good Headphones. Good Sound. Good Noise reduction. I am satisfied.

I'm amazed that a tiny iPod Shuffle can sound so good on them. They're comfortable and the noise-cancellation, if it isn't 100%, is close enough. Way recommended.
