  • Overview

    The ATH-AR3BT SonicFuel® wireless on-ear headphones enhance your everyday listening experience with rich, full-range audio and the convenience of Bluetooth® and NFC wireless technologies. The headphones are equipped with newly designed 40 mm drivers that reproduce clear mid- and high-frequencies as well as full, expressive bass.

    The Bluetooth® and NFC technologies allow you to quickly pair with compatible devices. A mic and volume/control switch are built into the left earcup, making it easy to answer calls, adjust volume and handle playback (play, pause, fast-forward, reverse, next/previous track) of music and video on your devices. A detachable 1.2 m (3.9') cable with mic and controls is also included to provide a standard wired connection usable in areas where wireless technology is prohibited or when the headphones’ battery power is low.

    The internal lithium polymer battery provides 30 hours of continuous use (up to 1,000 hours in standby mode) and can be recharged using the included 1.0 m (3.3') USB charging cable.

    Available in black (ATH-AR3BTBK) and white (ATH-AR3BTWH).

            Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-AR3BT SonicFuel® Wireless On-Ear Headphones with Mic & Control:

            The unboxing was great. I notice how well it was packaged. It came with the cords and also pre-charged. Afterwards without instructions, the device was easy to sync/link via Bluetooth. I got to hear it without a cord and it sounds great. I also got to hear it with a cord and it made my ears +wet. The design is great and is my daily driver.

            Great value! Good quality and can't find a complaint on ease of use or sound quality. The only comment I would make is comfort of wear. These have been an outstanding purchase, I am impressed with the sound quality of these Bluetooth headphones and would recommend them in a heart beat.

                A:

                The ATH-AR3BT are not active noise cancelling but rather passive noise cancelling. This is the same as putting your hands over your ears; you are putting material between your ears and the source (outside noise.)
