ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones reduce distracting background noise by up to 90% while offering the superior sound that makes Audio-Technica a world-leading pro audio company.
Engineered to create a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise, these in-ear headphones feature a miniature microphone in each earpiece that picks up ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.). Electronics in the control box create a noise-cancelling wave that is 180 degrees out of phase with the ambient noise. This wave acts like a noise eraser: it cancels out the annoying sounds that surround you without diminishing the audio you want to hear. The result, a peaceful enclave to enjoy the music or movies of your choice.

Great fit, good buy at this price
from Belmont, CA
About Me Audiophile, Frequent Traveler, Gear Head
Compared to other earbuds, this doesn't randomly fall out of my ears. compared to other over-ear units, it doesn't hurt to wear more than 4 hours while on long flights. Since extensions can be found in electronics stores, the 'short' cord (in some circumstances) minor issue can be inexpensively overcome.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Best I've found so far
from Grand Rapids, MI
In low to moderate background noise areas, these earphones do a pretty good job of removing background noises. I bought them for use on my motorcycle. And while they do a better job than any other earphones I've found to date, they aren't up to neutralizing more than about 10% to 20% of "Harley rumble."
Inexpesive good for studying.

It does a great job of dampening external noise while playing great sounding music. It's everything I wanted. A longer cord would make it more convenient because of the many different clothing types where there is no easy place to clip onto.
Compact, great sound for planes/ the gym

About Me Frequent Traveler, White Collar Worker
It really removes background noise, so I can hear the music I want to listen to, whether on a plane or at the gym. It fits well into my ear even when jogging with just one ear in. You can turn off the noise canceling e.g. while jogging on the street for safety, and it works without batteries.
I'm sold on these!

About Me Audiophile, Frequent Traveler
The ATH-ANC23 headphones do a great job of dampening cabin noise on flights. I travel a great deal internationally, and these headphones are not only effective in cutting noise, but produce great sound. Finally, i don't have to carry bulky standard sized headphones in my carry on luggage!
Great sound quality!

Great sound quality! The noise canceller is a great feature. The earbuds are sometimes uncomfortable but that is related more to my dry ear than the bud itself. Great product for the price!
