Audio-Technica rolls out a noise-canceling trio to do battle with Sony and Bose
The two most in-demand features in modern headphones are wireless playback and active noise cancellation (ANC), and Audio-Technica is addressing both with the launch of three new sets of headphones at CES 2019
Audio Technica has priced the ATH-ANC900BT wireless headphones at $299 (roughly Rs. 20,800) which is highly attractive considering its biggest rivals easily cost more than that. The company claims these are its best noise-canceling wireless headphones yet.
The most appealing spec of the ANC900BT, which support Bluetooth 5, is a claimed battery life of 35 hours with ANC turned on. That number overshadows most of what we’ve seen on the market so far, and it will absolutely pose a challenge to Sony’s reigning champion 1000Xs.
Wireless headphones come with noise cancellation modes that can be adjusted using the company’s Connect mobile application. The microphones present inside the headphones adjust to the surrounding noise.
