audio-technica ATH-MSR7NC Description

The ATH-MSR7NC is designed for high fidelity listening, whilst on the go.

Similar to the other MSR7 range, the MSR7NC proves to be an extremely versatile product which can not only be used whilst commuting, but also essential when listening to high fidelity music at home.

The Closed-Back design keeps your music from leaking to passengers by, and also isolates external sounds giving you a clear audio experience. This can also be handy when used in tandem with the in-line microphone. This enables you to make and take calls even in the noisiest of situations.

Comfortable Noise Cancelling Headphoness

Comfortable Noise Cancelling Headphoness

If you're looking for noise cancelling headphones, then the chances are your either commuting, or you wish to retreat to the comforts of your listening world.

Many months of research and development have gone into the headphones to ensure that the headphones are extremely comfy and enable the user to listen for hours on end. The soft memory-foam distributes the pressure evenly around the head to maximise comfort and insulate outside noise.

Not only are they comfy, but they are also build to last. The solid feel of the headphones rivals that of much more expensive audio-technica products.

High Resolutions Audio

High Resolutions Audio

Often Noise Cancelling headphones listening quality is greatly reduced due to the overall cost associated with the Noise Cancelling technology. This is not the case with the MSR7NC as the core components of the MSR7 are already far better than other headphones of a similar price. This therefore brings the overall cost of high fidelity listening + Noise Cancelling headphones into an affordable price bracket.

As seen in the image above, the MSR7NC is officially classed as High Resolution Audio. Some say this may be somewhat of a gimmick, but the graph above clearly illustrates extra spectrums of sound which the MSR7NC can execute.

Much like other audio-technica products, people often describe the MSR7 range to be very open and detailed. The sound seems to come from a much large source giving the illusion of a very large sound stage.

They are very balanced which enables the listener to listen to a wide range of songs over long listening periods. This is particular pleasing over a long haul flight or listening to your latest album on your commute to work.

audio-technica ATH-MSR7NC Professional Reviews

Please note that professional reviews for headphones are much more varied than traditional Hi-Fi. With Bookshelf Speakers and the likes, it's quite often to get 5 stars straight across the board. With Headphones, it's very rare that everyone agrees on the quality of the product, therefore straight 5 star reviews are very rare. Critically acclaimed headphones will generally average around 4 stars regardless of performance, so don't be put off by this.

That being said, we always prefer to show each review where possible, even if the review isn't so flattering. It is after all a very subjective opinion as everyone has different hearing abilities and preferred styles. Think of it like wine, you can buy a £100 bottle, but prefer a £6. At the end of the day it's down to taste and taste alone.

Let us know if you find any good professional reviews and we will add them to the site!


Pocket-lint 5 Stars Editors Choice

Having used the Audio-Technica MSR7NC headphones for dozens of hours, if not hundreds, we continue to be drawn back to them as our go-to over-ear headphones. The reason is simple: they're comfortable and they sound great - whatever we've thrown at them.


Excellent natural audio yet enough kick in all frequencies where needed, comfortable to wear for long periods, fairly priced, 30-hour on-board battery, subtle noise-cancelling works well for travel and largely avoids wind "tear"


Not the best-in-class noise-cancelling ability in terms of dramatism, no Bluetooth wireless, simplified mono design compared to originals - some colour accent options would be good

They do offer very good sound quality, though, especially if you like your sound clear and well defined rather than with big brash bass attached to its bottom-end.

  • Great-quality, clear sound
  • Comfortable
  • Good battery life
  • ANC not as effective as the best
  • Slight granularity to the mids
