Whether you fly a lot, work in a noisy office, or simply love the stillness of a silent reprieve, QuietPoint® headphones give you a listening experience free from distractions. The ATH-ANC70 QuietPoint® active noise-cancelling headphones are lightweight and compact to effectively reduce distracting background noise by up to 90%, while offering the superior audio quality that has made Audio-Technica a worldwide leader in electro-acoustic technology. Ideal for use with smartphones, tablets, laptops, music devices & in-flight entertainment systems, ATH-ANC70 QuietPoint® closed-back headphones deliver clear, impactful sound, with intense bass, a detailed midrange, and extended treble to create an immersive soundfield. When used with a smartphone, you can simply press the illuminated logo-button on the earcup to take a phone call or to return to your music or silence. A high-sensitivity mic has been built into the earcup, rather than the cable, for improved speech clarity and volume. The fixed-position mic maintains a consistent distance from your mouth to provide a uniform volume level and eliminates noise from cable motion.
The QuietPoint® module generates a signal from the sensors located on the earpiece, which is out of phase with ambient noise. This signal cancels unwanted background noise around you by up to 90% while offering the superior sound that makes Audio-Technica a world-leading audio manufacturer. The result: a haven of peace to enjoy the music or movies of your choice.
Simply press the illuminated logo on the side of the headphones to answer calls or manage your music.

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!
A solid, well-designed set of noise-cancelling headphones offering good noise-dampening and respectable sound quality at a reasonably affordable price. If Audio-Technica could improve on overall clarity with the next version, it could have a winner on its hands.Read full review
Now that you've glimpsed the market, it's probably easier to see why these Audio-Technica's are actually a fair bet. For underneath the $200 mark, they offer average audio, comfortable over-ear design, and useful extras like a removable cable, mic, and remote. Bottom line: The ATH-ANC70 QuietPoints have plenty going for them, but they aren't a blue ribbon buy—try to take them for a test drive, and definitely hunt down sale prices.Read full review
