About ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Audio-Technica's ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint headphones use proprietary active noise-cancelling technology to provide a comfortable listening experience in areas with high ambient noise.  The headphones feature two miniature microphones in each earpiece that pick up ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.) and create a sound cancelling signal to effectively block the noise.

Tri-Level Cancellation
ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint headphones feature Audio-Technica's Tri-Level Cancellation - three unique mode settings that offer adjusted active noise cancellation based on the noise in your environment.  Mode 1: ideal for use on airplanes, trains, and buses, applies maximum noise cancellation to low frequencies.  Mode 2: designed especially for use in noisy offices or crowded places, targets the mid-range frequencies.  Mode 3: best suited for use in already-quiet environments like libraries, creates a pristine, peaceful environment ideal for study.

Inline Controller
The ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint headphones are the first over-ear QuietPoint model to offer a cable with an inline microphone and controller for answering calls and controlling music.  The mic and controller support select smartphone models and touchpad devices.  The microphone has an omnidirectional pickup patter and is designed for crisp intelligibility, so you voice will be clearly transmitted without having to speak directly into the mic.

Premier Sound
Audio-Technica equipment is used by major artists for studio recording and capturing live performances on stage...allowing audiences to experience their work as clearly and fully as it was intended.  These headphones are designed to offer you the crystal-clear sound that makes Audio-Technica the choice of leading artists worldwide.  Wherever you happen to find yourself - in the comfort of your living room, in a noisy office, or settling in for a long flight, there is no better way to experience audio or immerse yourself in a peaceful environment.

4 out of 5 stars   Pleasant sound, decent noise cancelling
By Kocho (Maryland) May 27, 2015
Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint Noise-Cancelling Headphones (ATHANC9)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Good noise cancelling for low frequencies works well Solid construction Sound quality is OK: the sound is pleasant and not fatiguing but it is not neutral and natural (sound quality is "boosted" with exaggerated lows, somewhat weak highs)
Cons: Bulky On the ear design (around the ear/bigger cups would be nicer) Cord too short White noise (hiss) in powered mode Noise cancellation for mid and high frequencies is perfect
Other Comments: While these may be one of the top noise cancelling headphones based on reviews online, their sound quality is nothing exceptional. Based on my own tests, they sound about the same as a quality pair of earbuds that come bundled with a decent cell phone. In fact, the earbuds from my Samsung Note (original edition from several years ago) sound slightly better across the board than these. No comparison with really good headphones such as Sennheiser SD600. I would only buy noise cancelling headphones like these if noise cancellation is a top priority - otherwise they are not worth the money at all as for a quarter of the price one can get much better sound quality in a quiet environment.

5 out of 5 stars   Works as advertised
By Joe (Rome, NY) March 25, 2015
Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint Noise-Cancelling Headphones (ATHANC9)
Verified Purchaser

Verified Reviewer
Pros: I use a treadmill for an hour each morning. With a regular headphone, I had to keep the volume very high to hear over the noise of the treadmill. With these noise-cancelling headphones, I was able to lower the volume of the TV from about 56-60 all the way down to 20.
Cons: After one month, none identified so far.
Other Comments: I've already passed the advertised battery life and they are still working. I will switch to rechargeable batteries when the one that came with it expires.

5 out of 5 stars   Excellent NC
By Jaeger (Silicon Valley USA) January 05, 2014
Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint Noise-Cancelling Headphones (ATHANC9)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: I am no audiophile so take this for what it's worth. I was using UE6000s, which are great-sounding but the NC is poor. These destroy the UEs in NC and might sound a little better (wider soundstage). They do not match Bose in NC. The case is large and I'm unsure I would carry-on such large item on a flight just for the NC.

5 out of 5 stars   High Quality Headphones
By Mike (Newport Beach, CA) May 01, 2013
Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint Noise-Cancelling Headphones (ATHANC9)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Clean Sound, Comfortable
Cons:
Other Comments: I use these headphones at every opportunity I can, which usually means in the office or at home. I listen to indie/alternative rock and EDM, and I think these headphones are versatile enough to provide me with the sound I'm looking for in both genres. The case allows for easy transportation without fear of accidentally scuffing/breaking the headphones. Also don't hold these badboys back--pair them with a headphone amp!

5 out of 5 stars   Pretty Good Headphones and Great Bass
By Thomas T (North Dakota) January 22, 2013
Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint Noise-Cancelling Headphones (ATHANC9)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: I haven't had the chance to use it on a flight yet but I have tried it on at home in front of the tv. My first impression on these headphones I would say they are pretty good. It blocked out most of the noise from the tv. The sounds that comes out of these headphones are pretty amazing! I would recommend these over the bose qc-15 just because it has better sounds. As far as noise cancellation, I would probably recommend the bose over these. They are superior in that department. The bass was good. Not too overpowering like the Dre Beats headphones are. So overrall I am very satisfied with these headphones! Would highly recommend these to anyone!

4 out of 5 stars   Good Product, Good Price
By Micah J (Yuma, AZ) January 08, 2013
Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint Noise-Cancelling Headphones (ATHANC9)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Multiple Nc Settings, Comfortable
Cons: Noise Bleed, Lifts From Ear Sometimes
Other Comments: I've used this only on the airplane so far, but it has worked well. It lifts from my ears sometimes, if I tip my head and I hear outside sounds when this happens. There is some noise bleed at louder volume levels, but nothing bad for a plane ride that already has plenty of noise from the engines. The sound is good and clean. I much prefer these that I picked up for far less than the Bose that everyone told me get. I've heard the Bose and they're comparable, but they out priced themselves to me.

5 out of 5 stars   Best For the Money

Pros: price, Adjustable Cancelation Le
Cons: Not for Audiophiles
Other Comments: Good enough for my ears especially given that Bose qc15 is twice the price. Adjustable cancelling is useful. Sometimes you want to hear things (e.g. Someone's voice).

4 out of 5 stars   Great balance of performance and price!
By Ev (Raleigh, NC) January 04, 2013
Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint Noise-Cancelling Headphones (ATHANC9)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great noise cancellation, Good sound
Cons: Lightweight Build, No Replaceable Cushions, Bass And Treble Humps, Huge
Other Comments: I started looking at these after years of looking at Bose, which seemed to have the best performance for value. However, the sound from the Bose units was, in a word, horrible. In addition, I was looking for something that went around my ears, instead of on top of them. That narrowed the field significantly, but cost remained a factor, and most of the offerings of note are somewhat expensive. My primary use for the unit was to be in my office, which is across the street from a fire station. While the sirens are infrequent and therefore not a problem, the seemingly constant drone of equipment as it is being readiness tested began to wear on me. After reading a number of reviews over the years and seeing the ATs for a great price recently (with a rebate to boot), I took the plunge. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the ATs. While certainly not audiophile quality, the sound is better than the Bose offerings, and the three-stage noise cancellation is an added bonus, especially in the office environment. A note on the sound quality: when the noise reduction circuit is engaged, it sounds as though someone depressed the 'loudness' button. Contrary to what most reviewers have stated, I find the sound is closer to flat without the circuit engaged. However, most people will certainly prefer the bass and treble bump afforded by the noise reduction circuitry, and the sound in the 'off' position will likely be considered a bit bland. As with all noise cancellation headphones I have used, there is a hiss when the circuit is turned on, but I have come to expect it. In a noisy environment, the hiss is not noticeable, but in an office it is noticeable, but not objectionable after 10 minutes or so. I use the headphones about 4 hours during the workday, and at home from time to time. So far, I have not experienced any 'headphone fatigue,' but I have also fiddled with the fit considerably to find the sweet spot for the headband and the ear cups. Some reviewers have reported a rumbling sound with the noise reduction on, but it is a byproduct of a poor earcup seal. As far as the build is concerned, the ATs do feel a bit 'plasticky' and lightweight for the MSRP, but I feel the same about the Bose offerings as well. in addition, it would have been nice if they had an extra hinge so they can fold a bit more, because they are huge when in the included case. because of the large size, I am unsure as to whether I will be using them when I fly. For my purposes, however, the rather largish size is not a huge problem. Overall, I recommend these headphones heartily, particularly for those who are not enamored of the Bose sound. While there are a number of other offerings out there, the retail price (plus the rebate) makes these an unbeatable combination. Given that my other choice, the PSB M4U 2, is more than double what I paid (after the rebate), I believe this one is a no-brainer.

3 out of 5 stars   Good performers, but clumsy
By Nikki P. (San Francisco, CA) December 23, 2012
Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint Noise-Cancelling Headphones (ATHANC9)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good for music
Cons: Huge, Clumsy, bulky
Other Comments: They're better for music than the Sony MDR-NC60, but the Sony fits closer to the head, is more comfortable, stows away in a much smaller case, and appears to be a much better build quality. I lost my MDR-NC60's and couldn't find a replacement, so I took a chance on the more expensive Audio-Technia. I'd trade them in a second for a new pair of MDR-NC60's. I ride BART (train) four days a week, and good noise canceling headphones are a must. The music reproduction quality is secondary to my needs.

5 out of 5 stars   High on Sound, Low on Noise!
By TheCyberKnight (Montreal, Canada) December 11, 2012
Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint Noise-Cancelling Headphones (ATHANC9)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Well built, Battery Life, Comfortable, Carrying case, Sound quality
Cons: Battery Compartment, Slightly big
Other Comments: This is not my first pair of noise cancelling headphones but they are my best ones. Sound quality is excellent with well defined bass and clear highs. The ATH-ANC9 are very comfortable on the ears even when use for several hours. Their weight is also just fine for multi-hours use. They are slightly bigger than the Bose QC15. Noise cancellation is very good with an advertised up to 30db sound level cut. The cancellation is a lot better than the Creative HN-900 and about the same or slightly better than the QC15. They offer 3 settings for noise cancellation, Plane, Office and Library. Each setting has its own LED color on the outside and an audio cue inside. Also, when the battery is depleted, the headphones WILL still work but without the sound enhancing provided by the cancellation system (the Bose QC15 just stop working). Battery life is on par with the industry with around 25 hours on an Eneloop AAA. The battery holder could have been better designed since it is somewhat clumsy to handle. Meanwhile, you don't have to access it too often. Overall, well built and definitely recommended. Look for sales, they worth it.
