audio-technica QuietPoint Active Noise Cancelling Headphones ATH-ANC7b Review
17 December 2009
Excerpt: My first experience with noise cancelling technology was many years ago when I got bumped up to first class on a Singapore Airlines flight. They offered us the headsets for a 15 hour flight to the West coast US and it made me want to buy a set when I got back home.
Excerpt: published a series of reviews of active noise-cancelling headphones, collectively called the “Sounds of Silence”, and one of our favorite models at the time was Audio-Technica’s “Quiet Point” ATH-ANC7.
Conclusion: True audiophile quality sound and effective noise cancelling don’t usually come in the same box, but Audio-Technica managed to do it here, and kick in some extremely thoughtful features and functionality as well.
Pros: Comfortable, well-designed ear pads; excellent noise cancellation; will play music passively; easy storage; powerful, well-balanced sound
Cons: Slightly large ear-cup size; slight emphasis on mid-bass
Excerpt: I had a problem. I ride the bus to work, and sometimes you just get tired of all the noise, sometimes from the other bus riders, sometimes from the engine, or maybe I just want to focus on something else for the commute, like a good song or two.
Excerpt: L'Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7b est un casque peu onéreux au regard de ce qu’il offre. Sur beaucoup de points, il ressemble même aux modèles les plus performants, luxueux et coûteux que sont le Denon AH-NC800 et le Bose QC15.
Pros: Efficacité du système de réduction du bruit, Confort, Excellentes performances en mode actif et passif
