  • Overview

    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 or DVD players & in-flight entertainment systems, ATH-ANC70 QuietPoint® closed-back headphones deliver clear, high-resolution sound, with intense bass, a detailed midrange, extended treble and accurate imaging in 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. Fixed-position mic maintains consistent distance from mouth for uniform volume level and eliminates noise from cable motion or rubbing on a collar. The earcups have been designed for greater comfort, with memory-foam padding and a shape that fits easily over any ear. The headband has been engineered to distribute mass evenly across the head, making it feel lightweight for longer wearing comfort.

    The ATH-ANC70 QuietPoint® headphones feature large-aperture 40 mm drivers with a rare earth magnet system and high sensitivity to provide generous volume levels from any music source. The headphones also work when the noise-cancelling function is turned off, and operate in passive mode without batteries. Noise-cancelling electronics are fully integrated in each earpiece, with no need for external modules.

    So now you can hear everything as it was intended. And absolutely nothing else. Find your QuietPoint®

    Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-ANC70 QuietPoint® Active Noise-cancelling Headphones:

    I actually won these from an airline. Great audio quality, looks very good, noise-canceling feature is excellent. The only thing that would have made it better for me is if it were wireless.

    • Q:

      Boom Microphone Option

      I am putting to rest my 5 year old Able Planet boom mic. It was great but the cable is frayed and it no longer works. Are there recommended boom mic options for this headset? I can buy another Able Planet one, but I also saw the V-Moda BoomPro and one by Beyerdynamic. Recommendations appreciated!

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. There is no boom mic for this headphone. You may want to consider one of our gaming headsets. Please see this link.

    • Q:

      Are the volume controls compatible with android smartphones?

      Android and iOS use different standards for their headphone controls.
      So the volume controls on a headphone are either android compatible or iOS compatible.
      For what operating system are the volume controls of the AUDIO-TECHNICA ATH-ANC70 designed?
      Asked on 12/24/2014 by Paco

      1 answer

      • A:

        Yes, the volume controls are mechanical integrated into the headphones.

      How do you change the battery on these headphones
      Asked on 8/26/2014 by Jerry1

      1 answer

      • A:

        Following is a link to the Instruction Manual for the ATH-ANC70 QuietPoint Headphones. The battery is located behind the right earcup (the one that DOES NOT have any controls or connections on it). The outer cover can be removed by pushing the cover upwards toward the headband to unlock it, then grasping the top edge of the cover and pulling it away from the headphones. See page 5 of the manual for an illustration of this.

        The tentative release-date for the ATH-ANC70 will be sometime in late-December, or January 2014. They are currently not available in any (other) world market. Being that the release-date it tentative, it is subject to change.

    • Q:

      Mic for pc/Mac

      Will the microphone work with a computer?
      Asked on 11/12/2013 by Guest

      1 answer

      • A:

        The ATH-ANC70 microphone is designed specifically for use with smartphones and compatible tablets, such as the iPad.

        If your computer features a headphone/microphone combo-jack (icon looks like a headphone + microphone), and your operating system will allow for a communications headphone, then the ATH-ANC70 should work. To be absolutely certain of compatibility, please check with your computer's manufacturer and with the program you intend to use, before use.

        Thanks!
