  • 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.

    ATH-ANC700BT User Manual (pdf 1.64 M)
  • Reviews



    I was impressed how uncomplicated pairing was. I very much liked the on/off function. The sound however is not good and I can only describe it as listening through a curtain. There was no crispness to the music and the volume control is inadequate. Overall I found the 'phones didn't match the sellers description. This is my opening impression of these phones and this is written after the first hours use. I found the wearing very comfortable but it went downhill from there, beginning with extremely small print in the instructions.



    great for studio mixing


    the headphone is great lost of lows when noise cancellation is off. but this means you cant use noise cancellation I use them when working on studio mixes. the touch controls are not what you would expect





    Amazing quality and great features. The noise cancelling is great and I love the controls on the side. Pretty good battery and very comfortable, great work.

    High Quality, Great Sound, No Replaceable Battery


    I used these for an entire afternoon and found them superior to my Bose QC25s...much clearer, bright treble, better constructed, and overall more appealing. Only negative was that the battery was not replaceable and I had to charge it. I like consumer-friendly setups like AT's other headqphones as well as the Bose QC25. Overall, a great set and if you want wireless, I'd go for these over Bose QC35s.

    Not durable


    Not durable at all



    A high-quality headset worth every cent.


    I've owned these headphones for about a month now. Their construction is solid and will certainly survive a couple drops, although some might be turned off by the plastic. However, the plastic means these headphones are lightweight and rest easily on the head with little clamping pressure. Even with little clamping, though, they feel more than secure on my head. Sound leakage is minimal (as expected) and sound quality is definitely best when the headphones are plugged in. Bass lovers will probably not enjoy these cans, as the bass is defined but not emphasized - fine for me, since I don't like bass-heavy music. Volume is reduced quite a bit when in Bluetooth mode, but max volume should be more than enough for casual listening. Noise cancellation, as described, will not eliminate voices and higher tones around you, but will easily block lower tones such as engines, air conditioners, or turbines. Better yet, it won't give you the annoying 'cabin pressure' feeling I had when testing the Bose QC35IIs and the Sony. It doesn't interfere with the music too much in my experience, although it can be a bit quiet when coupled with Bluetooth. My previous pair of headphones was an old gaming headset, and it's been an interesting transition. I can wear these for 4+ hours with little fatigue and they travel very easily. However, while my old headset could function in wired mode without a charge, that is not the case here. Charge it before using it the first time - otherwise, you get a strange, weak, tinny sound. It confused me at first. So, if you've made it through my brief novel here, I would definitely recommend this product overall and I believe it is worth considering if you are looking at the $300+ Bose and Sony pairs.





    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.

    Pros, Cons, and Comparisons


    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.

    A beast of a headphone for the price!!!


    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.

  • Q & A

    Are there any Audio-Technica bluetooth wireless headphones available that have multi-point connection? It means the headset can be connected to 2 devices simultaneously.


    The only current model is the ATH-ANC40BT.


    Is it possible to swap the ear pads out for another set if they become too worn or uncomfortable?


    Please contact our Parts Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5002 or at for assistance with this.


    Is it possible to turn off ANC?


    Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at for assistance with this.


    How can I get another cable?


    Please contact our Parts Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5002 or at for assistance with this.


    Can this be any percentage of relief for tinnitus?


    No there would not. The Active Noise Cancelling technology uses microphones to capture ambient noises and by flipping the polarity of that signal, the ear identifies those frequencies as reduced, or lower volume.


    Can I connect the headset to the airplane audio system ?? Or I have to buy another adaptor to connect it


    You may contact your local Audio-Technica offices for further assistance.


    Can I have it connected to a Kindle to hear video, and have it connected to my phone and take calls connecting both via Bluetooth at the same time? If yes how. No instructions on manual.


    No, the ATH-ANC700BT does not have Multi-Point connection.


    i have lost my cords for the headphones and i woul like to know how to turn on the bluetooth for them


    Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at for assistance with this.


    Dear Support, How can I factory reset the whole product? Connecting USB, disconnecting and connecting again results in no effect... Want to reset the hole BT pairing List to got a clean problem is, that the headphone always tries to connect to the first paired BT Device, which doesn't belong to me anymore. After not finding Device 1, the headphones doesn't automatically connect to device #2... Any other solutions? :) greetings Alex


    You may contact Audio-Technica Europe for further assistance.


    I lost my charger cable and wire for the headphones. I know it's now recommended but can I use a normal 35mm audio wire or any other for audio? Will I be losing functionality or anything like that?
