  • Overview

    ATH-ANC33iS QuietPoint® Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones reduce distracting background noise by up to 90% while offering the superior sound that makes Audio-Technica a world-leading pro audio company.

    Engineered to create a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise, these in-ear headphones feature a miniature microphone in each earpiece that picks up ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.). Electronics in the QuietPoint control module create a noise-cancelling wave that is 180° out of phase with the ambient noise. This wave acts like a noise eraser: it cancels out the annoying sounds that surround you without diminishing the audio you want to hear. The result…a peaceful enclave to enjoy the music or movies of your choice.

    The ATH-ANC33iS in-ear headphones also feature an inline microphone and controller for answering calls and controlling music. The mic and controller support smartphones, iPhones, iPads, many iPods & other compatible devices. The microphone has an omnidirectional pickup pattern and it is designed for crisp intelligibility, so your voice will be clearly transmitted without having to speak directly into the mic.

    This product is available at Staples, shopaudiotechnica.com, and other online retailers.

    ATH-ANC33iS QuietPoint® Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones 5 5 2 2
    These ones are replacing my pricey noice-cancelling headphones Got these at the airport as an alternative to a set of pricey noise-cancelling headphones from another brand I bought just 3 months ago. Headphones can be a bit bulky and get in the way if you want to sleep on a plane, so in-ear headphones are a good alternative (to sleep, just turn on noise cancellation without listening to any audio source). Noise-cancellation works like a charm and just as good or better than any other brand or model I've used before. I'm keeping these In-Ear headphones and selling my other ones now. Great portability and good sound at a third of the price for what I paid for the others. Last, but not least, one of Audio-Technica's strongest points: you can leave noise-cancellation off and still use your headphones like normal passive headphones (though I'm not sure if this applies to their whole range) - a feature that I really appreciate.

    Great product Bought this at airport for my blackberry for use on plane and while driving in car. They work really well and are comfortable. Only issue i have with any of these types of devices is the wear and tear on the phono jack inserting and removing from device. seems like mre strain relief would be used to prevent wire damage. For the price they work really nice and less bulky than set of head phones. May 24, 2013

    ATH-ANC33iS compatibility with Nokia Lumia

    Hi,
    Will this model have full compatibility with Nokia Lumia series mobile phones? (the website only gives compatibility to iPhone, iPod type of devices).

    And do you have a date on when this will be available in US or in Europe (Finland).
    Thanks

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. They should be availble in mid April in the US. I cannot address availabilty in Europe since we only cover the Americas on this site. These are designed to work with Apple products. Some or all functionality may or may not work with the Nokia device. There are just too many phones avaialble to test them all.

    Answer: 
    Unfortunately, the ATH-ANC33iS will not be available for purchase until mid-late April 2013.

    However, please check out the following web-page for Audio-Technica headphones with microphones:
    http://www.audio-technica.com/cgi-b...

    Models that will work with smartphones will have an "i" in the title (example: ATH-CSK55iBK).

    Performance ATH-ANC33iS vs. ATH-ANC23

    What are the differences between the ATH-ANC33iS and the ATH-ANC23? Is it just the microphone? Are there any technical audio graphs that show the frequency response comparisons?

    About purchasing this item in Australia

    I live in Australia. I have a wonderful pair of the audio technica ANC23 noise cancelling ear bud headphones. I would like to get a pair of these for my mobile phone for talking as well, but they do not appear to be available in Australia - not on the Australian audio technica website anyway. Can I purchase them online at your audio technica United States website - and organise postage to Australia?

    Thank you for your inquiry. Our website does not ship outside of the US. Also, purchasing outside of your country makes warranty repair a bit tricky.
