ATH-ANC23BK QuietPointÂ® Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones
Great sound; great noise suppression
Compared to a different manufacturer's active noise-cancelling in-ear monitors that I have used for about 2 years, the Audio Technica ATH-ANC23 in-ear monitors are so much better. (I use the earphones with music and internet radio apps on my Android phone.) The sound is crystal clear, with excellent undistorted bass. (Of course, using a good software app with tone and equalization controls helps improve the listening experience with any headphones.) The noise suppression is excellent, eliminating most background noise on my daily commute on the NYC subway system. The small battery compartment with spring-loaded clip is perfectly placed to clip to my belt or shirt. The variously sized rubber cushions allow perfect fitting to the ear. I like the fact that you can still use the earphones -- albeit without noise cancellation -- even if the switch is off or if the battery dies, unlike other similar products. Great product at a good price.

Amazing Sound Quality!
i got these on amazon for really cheap ($43) first plus when i got them they seemed kinda flimsy and the cord was not what i was expecting but i went ahead and started using them. i was Blown Away!!!!! i had never heard such quality sound in an ear bud! they had a much better range and not as much bass emphasis as my old beats! the only reason durability and ease of use are not 5 star is because of the cord and the fact the clip on the noise reduction box is facing down the cord,the cord is easily tangled, and i want to clip to the bottom of a shirt or jacket.

Exceptional ear buds
I am very impressed by the quality given in this product. It is very lightweight, exceptional bass and sound and quietpoint tech really does cancel background noise out. They give many different sizes of ear plugs and even a foam pair that conforms to the shape of your ear (these are the ones that I use the most). I like the small pouch and airplane plugs (BIG PLUS FOR ME!!!!!!!!). I am more than happy with these ear buds I will definately look to Audio Technica in the future for all my listening needs.

Effective product for surrounding noise reduction
The in ear canal pieces could be softer and more comfortable with more sizes of foam adapters.

Great sound with noise cancelling on overseas flight.
Bought these ear buds for an overseas trip theydid a great job at blocking the constant hum of the engines on the 777. This product came with the adapter needed to plug and play on the flight. Just drop in the AAA battery turn on the noise cancelling and you will hear the difference immediately. You don't have to use the noise cancelling to listen, just plug and play it still has good sound quality.
