Audio-Technica debuts trio of noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones at CES 20190
The cheapest of the three, Audio-Technica ATH-ANC100BT cost just $99 (€99) and feature noise-canceling technology. The in-ear headphones feature a massive remote control with mic and 12mm driver for stunning sound reproduction with exceptional clarity.
According to Audio-Technica, the earphones should offer up to 10 hours of continuous Bluetooth and ANC use on a full charge, which is all you get since the protective carrying pouch is just that.
The more advanced ATH-ANC500BT QuietPoint wireless over-ear headphones use proprietary active noise-canceling technology. They have a mic and button controls built into the left earcup, which allows users to handle calls, music playback and volume adjustments on the fly.
The headphones offer around 20 hours on a charge and come with USB charging cable in the retail box. The ATH-ANC500BT will be available in black and navy for $99 (€99).
Last but not least, the ATH-ANC900BT QuietPoint wireless over-ear headphones feature digital hybrid noise-canceling technology, which is supposed to offer the highest degree of ambient noise reduction of any QuietPoint model.
The headphones are equipped with 40mm drivers and feature diamond-like carbon coating on the diaphragms for state-of-the-art sound quality. Unlike the other two models that use Bluetooth 4.2 technology, the ATH-ANC900BT utilize Bluetooth 5 wireless technology and have touch and swipe controls built into the earcup.
Also, thanks to the Audio-Technica app, users will be able to control the headphone settings, adjust noise-cancelation and hear-through function. The headphones come with a detachable cable that enables you to use them with a wired connection when battery power is low.
Speaking of battery, Audio-Technica says the ATH-ANC900BT headphones gives users about 35 hours of continuous Bluetooth and ANCS use on a full charge. These are the most expensive of the three and will sell for $299 (€299) starting in March.
