  • Q & A

    Do these have any wireless capabilities? I need headphones that are basic as can be.


    No, the ATH-ANC20 headphones are not wireless.


    I was just curious if these headphones had any sound leakage? Meaning will people next to me hear the sound coming from the headphones and if so how much?


    Thank you for your inquiry. There is some sound leakage, but probably minimal.


    how to increase volume of the noise-canceling feature? I don't see a volume button.


    The Active Noise Cancelling attenuation is a set level.
