If you’ve never heard of the company Audio-Technica sit back and let me tell you a little about this brand and their products. First, Audio-Technica was Established in 1962, Audio-Technica is a worldwide group of companies devoted to the design, manufacture, marketing and distribution of problem-solving audio equipment. Initially known for state-of-the-art phonograph cartridges, A-T now creates high-performance microphones, headphones, wireless systems, mixers and electronic products for home and professional use.
Recently Audio-Technica released a few products and one of them we received was a pair of their QuietPoint wireless noise-canceling headphones.
Now, when I say music is everything in my life it is, and I’m always looking at the latest technology to enjoy it. That means every pair of over-ear and in-ear models must be the best and must be able to effectively block out ambient noise and prove me with a smoothing listening experience.
That’s why when I saw that Audio-Technica released a pair of over-ear ATH-ANC500BT with QuietPoint wireless noise-canceling, I wanted to see just how they performed.
First, let me tell you about these headphones. The ATH-ANC500BT QuietPoint® wireless over-ear headphones use proprietary active noise-cancelling technology to provide a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise. They also feature Bluetooth® wireless technology and have a mic and button controls built into the left earcup for convenient handling of calls, music playback and volume adjustment.
The headphones’ 40 mm drivers supply powerful sound reproduction with exceptional clarity, whether operating over a Bluetooth wireless connection or a standard wired connection using the included 1.2 m (3.9′) audio cable with 3.5 mm (1/8″) stereo mini-plug. Memory-foam earpads provide excellent sound isolation and amazing comfort, and the earcups fold in to make the headphones more compact and easier to transport.
I tried out the headphones just the other day and here are my thoughts: First, I love how they sit smoothly upon my ear due to the soft cushion. I had no trouble pairing them via Bluetooth. I had a chance to sit back and listen to a few songs and I did this in an a very noisy environment which was in the kids’ room. I also love how all controls and the mic are built directly into the earcup for easy use, and how you have around 20 hours of listening before charging. Most of the headphones I have don’t allow that many hours so that’s a big plus in my opinion. Now being able to fold flat once you’re done is also great, this way they can travel with you anywhere.
Now the clarity of the ATH-ANC500BT QuietPoint® wireless over-ear headphones was very clear right down from the voice to the instruments in the background. No muffle sound or static in the sound. What I did experience is the advanced ANC circuitry to offset the ambient sound didn’t fully block out the background noise in my opinion but, it wasn’t so bad. However, for the price ($99) and the features I would recommend the ATH-ANC500BT QuietPoint® wireless over-ear headphones to everyone.
