  • Overview

    With Audio-Technica’s coveted high-fidelity sound quality, noise reduction up to 87%, and a detachable cable with in-line mic and controls for answering calls and controlling music, the ATH-ANC50iS provides a versatile, yet very affordable, entry into the world of QuietPoint®. The heavily padded earcups are designed to fit snuggly but comfortably over your ears, resulting in excellent passive noise cancellation. Flick the switch on the left earcup and the active noise-cancelling technology will kick on, effectively blocking environmental noise – use it when listening to music or to just give yourself some peace and quiet in noisy places.

    Connect the ATH-ANC50iS headphones to your favorite portable device using the 1.2 m (3.9') cable with in-line control and microphone, which lets you answer calls and handle playback (play, pause, fast-forward, reverse, next/previous track) of music and video. The high-quality, omnidirectional mic ensures clear transmission of your voice without requiring you to speak directly into the mic. The headphones also come with an airline adapter, AAA battery and a zippered protective pouch.

      Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-ANC50iS QuietPoint® Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones:

      The sound quality is good on this product for the price, and I was impressed with the noise cancelling capabilities, but after only 3-4 hours of use at my desk, a buzz developed in one ear when the noise cancellation is switched on. I tried the headphones in several different devices to make sure it wasn't my computer's fault, but the buzz persisted.

            A:

            The ATH-ANC50iS requires one AAA battery for operation (included). Use only disposable
            AAA alkaline batteries. Do not use rechargeable batteries.
            1. Move headphone power switch to the "OFF" position.
            2. While the headphones are lying in a flat position, use the lift tab at the bottom of the
            right earcup to open the battery compartment.
            3. Insert one AAA battery, observing correct polarity as marked.
            4. Close the battery compartment cover.

          Do these headphones fold for easy storage on the go? I have not seen any indication of such a feature.

          Is there a similar over the ear version that is all Bluethoth... In other words, no cable required to answer phone calls ( a mic build into the headset )???

            A:

            The ATH-ANC50is are pretty close to being over ear headphones. The cups are just big enough to fit over the ear (of course this may vary depending on ear size). If you want to play it safe, check out the ATH-ANC7b's or the ATH-ANC70's; the ear cups on those are bigger.
