  • Overview

    The ATH-ANC700BT QuietPoint® wireless over-ear headphones combine Audio-Technica’s proprietary active noise-cancelling technology with Bluetooth® wireless technology and convenient touch and swipe controls built into the earcup: Tap earcup to answer calls, play/pause music, and increase and decrease volume; swipe to skip to the next or previous music track. The headphones’ noise-cancelling functionality is driven by a four-microphone (two in each earcup) multi-feedback system for wide-range performance that greatly reduces environmental noise.

    The ATH-ANC700BT headphones feature 40 mm drivers that not only supply amazing wireless audio reproduction, but are capable of 5 – 40,000 Hz high-resolution frequency response when used with the included 1.2 m (3.9') standard audio cable with 3.5 mm (1/8") stereo mini-plug. Memory-foam earpads (firm internal layer, soft outer layer) provide excellent sound isolation and amazing comfort, and the earcups fold in to make the headphones more compact and easy to transport.

    An internal lithium polymer rechargeable battery powers the headphones, giving users approximately 25 hours of continuous Bluetooth and ANC use (1,000 hours on standby) on a full charge. The headphones come with a 30 cm (1') USB charging cable and a protective pouch.

        Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-ANC700BT QuietPoint® Wireless Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones:

        The big reason I got these headphones was for the noise cancelling. Now I own both the ANC9 and ANC7b. The noise cancelling on both of those are much better than these 700BT's. Why would a newer product have downgraded in the noise cancellation aspect? With the ANC9 and ANC7b the noise cancelling was great and I could barley hear anything when listening to my music when using at home, in the car and on the train. With the 700BT I can still hear things going on around me such as people talking or the sound of riding on the train. When it comes to sound the other 2 headphones are more clear. The ANC9 has really clear sound and pretty good bass while the ANC7b has clear sound but isn't good for bass. The 700BT comes in 2nd for bass. I do like these headphones either way though. They are really comfortable and the sound is still good although something just doesn't seem right to me about it.

            Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-ANC700BT QuietPoint® Wireless Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones:

            First of all I ALSO own the Bose QC 35 II and I will be making some comparisons as I discuss.
            The Bose will be better at NC but the AT will sound better. Decide the relative importance of sound quality, noise cancelling, and price. For me, it would be the ATH-ANC700BT if had to pick one.
            I will be referring to the Bose QC 35 II as just Bose, the ATH-ANC700BT as the AT, noise cancelling as NC, and bluetooth as BT.
            Comfortable: Yes, for me on par with the Bose. AT might be a bit heavier but to me this is compensated by (for me) the more comfortable headband design which has a little wider circumference.
            Great Sound: I would much rather listen to the AT over the Bose. I prefer the tighter base and clear highs and high-mids.
            Noise Cancelling and Audio Quality: Moderate for the AT and seems to work better toward the low end. I believe the audio design is to provide best sound with the NC on. I am less pleased with the EQ with the NC off. More mid-range less scooped. With NC on I am very happy. However the Bose NC is stronger and over a larger frequency range. The Bose are more muddy on the lows to me and more subdued on the highs.
            Transportability: The AT comes with a soft pouch (nothing special) while the Bose includes a somewhat hard case. With the AT everything folds nicely like the Bose however the AT are slightly larger, and for comparison sake, in order to get the AT into my Bose case I have to force and bend the headband more than I like so I will be looking for a AT case that is a bit larger than the Bose Case.
            So this is another issue for travlers. The Bose will take up a bit less space and comes with a case.
            Controls: Here is where there is a lot of difference. AT has touch controls and Bose has buttons. Both work fine. The touch take a little getting used to.
            BT: AT connection is very solid (no complaints) but ability to change paired connections on the fly is limited. Bose has a phone app that permits setup firmware updates and BT connection control.

              These Headphones are absolute beasts for the price. They are right up next to Bose noise cancelling tech for half the price. They look amazing and are extremely comfortable. The battery life is insane and really helps on long trips. Over all Audio Technica kills the headphone game. I have ATH-M50x special editions and these are just as high quality as those.

                      The manual tells it can be switched off by covering the touch panel with the palm, but do we have to let our palm on the touch panel to keep it switched off ? Or is it permanent until we cover the touch panel again with the palm ?

                        A:

                        The noise-cancelling function turns on automatically when you power the headphones on. To turn the noise-cancelling function off, cover all 3 sensor points on the touch panel at the same time using either a single finger or your entire palm for about 2 seconds. Repeat this process to turn the noise-cancelling function on again.
