Summary: We very much enjoyed the fit and performance of the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 noise cancelling headphones. The tri-level noise cancellation made these adaptable to nearly any environment or situation in which we would want to use these in. Audio-Technica's competitors may have more fully featured cell phone compatible audio cables, but Audio-Technica has the more comprehensive method of active noise cancellation.
Summary: Noise-cancelling headphones are very popular with frequent travelers and those who live or work in noisy environments. Audio-Technica's new ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint headphones supply you with three modes of operation that have impressed us to say the least. Now you can get on with grinding in peace.
Conclusion: Audio-Technica proves, once again, that its expertise in professional audio lends itself well to excellent headphone design. The ANC9 are wonderfully comfortable, effective at squashing noise, most importantly, sound like a high-end headphone with or without noise cancelling engaged.
Pros: Excellent sound, with or without noise cancelling, Very comfortable, Stylish storage case packed with all the right accessories, Highly effective noise cancellation available in three levels
Cons: AAA battery life is short-lived, Slightly forward upper midrange when noise-cancelling not needed, Headphone cable smaller than we’d like, Single-button control
Excerpt: has long admired Audio-Technica’s ATH-ANC7 and ATH-ANC7b noise-cancelling ‘phones and now the ATH-ANC9 ($349.95) has raised the bar higher still, both in terms of sound quality and flexibility. Before we begin our review of the ATH-ANC9, though, let’s consider the qualities that attracted us to A-T’s noise cancellers in the first place.

Summary: 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.
Pros: Excellent noise cancelling, Clear treble and solid bass, Good construction
Cons: Bass and treble suffer when powered off, Strong clamping force may cause fatigue, Thin cable
Conclusion: Liksom den prisbelönade mindre modellen ANC7B är detta lurar man har för funktionen, inte för utseendet. ANC9 sitter bekvämt på huvudet, är lätta att använda och har en bra batteritid med standardbatteri. Dock tar de lite plats i packningen då de inte är hopfällbara. En anpassningsbar brusreducering gör att de funkar i olika miljöer och påverkar inte musiken nämnvärt. Ljudet är fylligt med en distinkt bas, vi önskar bara att man hade kunnat dra på lite högre ibland.
