  • Conclusion: At $169.95 USD, the ATH-ANC3 are pricier than Sony’s $99 MDR-NC22 earbuds, though we’ve seen deep discounts as low as $120 USD online. Both are very compact, cancel noise well, and have long battery life, but Sony offers longer cabling, while Audio-Technica has the livelier sound.

Malgré le léger souffle généré lors de la mise en route du système actif, l'efficacité globale pour la réduction du bruit de fond est redoutable. Quand après une bonne heure de trajet, j'éteins le système actif, je suis toujours surpris de l'ampleur du bruit de fond amb...
