Audio-Technica Debuts Its ATH-ANC70 QuietPoint® Noise-Cancelling Headphones at CEA Line Shows 2013


Stow, OH 06-26-2013 At CEA Line Shows 2013 Audio-Technica is introducing its ATH-ANC70 QuietPoint active noise-cancelling (ANC) headphones, successor to the acclaimed ATH-ANC7b ANC model. The ATH-ANC70 provides up to 90% noise cancellation and offers a host of improvements including a mic and controller for answering calls and controlling music, completely integrated electronics with all functionality built into the earcup, and a new comfort-fit design.

The ATH-ANC70 has a microphone and controller for answering calls and operating music playback, and the controls are discreetly built into one of the earcups. Simply press the illuminated “Audio-Technica” logo/button to activate the mic or scroll through music tracks. The volume and on/off controls are also easily accessible. The mic and controller support most smartphones as well as select products including the iPhone™, iPad® and many iPod® models.

The ATH-ANC70 is redesigned to provide total long-wearing comfort. The diameter of the earcups has been increased for a more comfortable over-ear fit, and the earcups have a slimmer profile. The ear cushions and headband are made from memory foam, and the design of the headband hugs the shape of the wearer’s head to evenly distribute mass for a lighter “feel” and fit.

Like all QuietPoint models, the ATH-ANC70 offers superior noise-cancellation performance and audio quality. The headphones’ large 40 mm drivers and high-quality internal components deliver clear, detailed sound with impactful bass, a natural midrange, extended treble and precise imaging in an immersive sound field. The ATH-ANC70 also works when the noise-cancelling function is turned off, and operates in passive mode without batteries. The detachable cord enables the ATH-ANC70 to be used as cordless noise-cancelling headphones.

The ATH-ANC70 folds flat for storage and comes with a hard carrying case, a 1/4-inch adapter and airline adapter. The included AAA battery provides up to 40 hours of operation.

The suggested U.S. retail price of the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC70 QuietPoint active noise-cancelling headphones is $199.95.
