Introduction:

Today I have a great set of Audio-Technica headphones on my test bench. Audio-Technica is a well renowned company, known for a variety of audio products. Their products can be found in recording studios, backpacks, homes and anywhere people demand high-quality audio products. They cater to all levels of use and I think that plays to their advantage. 

I recently had the opportunity to meet up with Audio-Technica at CES 2014 and they had a lot of enthusiasm for their current products as well as future endeavors that are in the works.

Specifically speaking, I will be reviewing the ATH-ANC70 QuietPoint Headphones. Knowing Audio-Technica's reputation for superior equipment, I'm really excited to dive into this review.

 

First Look:

The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC70 Quietpoint Headphones came packaged in a stylishly-printed outer box. A sturdy carry case was inside, designed to protect these beauties anywhere they go.  I personally feel that a company's packaging says a lot about their products and the company as a whole. 

Box

 

Inside the carry case was everything I needed to start rocking to my favorite music. Along with the headphones, there is a detachable 1.2m cable with standard 3.5mm jacks. There are also adapters for airline jacks, as well as, a 6.3mm jack. Finally they did supply a battery to operate the active noise cancelling feature of these headphones.

Carry Case

 

The ATH-ANC70 Headphones are over the ear style.  I found that these were really comfortable to wear and offered a great sealed environment for my ears. The biggest feature of these Headphones has to be the active noise cancelling technology.

I've tried different headphones that dampen the surrounding noise but they were nothing like what Audio-Technica brought to the table today. I was really amazed by the amount of noise that was removed from my environment when I was using these.  I have a pretty active house and these made it all melt away and let my music take center stage - where it is supposed to be.

On the next page we'll cover the features and specifications for these headphones before we talk about how they perform and wrap up with our final thoughts.
