  • 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.

    I would not buy this product again.

    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.

    El modelo ATH-ANC50iS de audĂ­fonos tienen frecuencia plana? y pueden servir como monitores?

    Mali

    Gracias. SĂ­.

    How are these headphones different from the ANC29?

    Peva

    Thank you for your inquiry. They are similar, although the ATH-ANC29's are a bit more sensitive (loud).

    I purchased these at the airport and got rid of the box because of space. Now I want to register the 2 years international warranty and found out I need to fill in the serial number, although the shop assistant ensured me all I need to register it is my receipt. I do have the manual, but it is not there either. How do I register it?

    Monika

    Thank you for your inquiry. You only need the receipt to claim warranty service. It is not necessary to register.

    Are the ATH-ANC50iS Headphones considered to be over-ear? I honestly need it for comfort.

    Buckee

    They are considered over-ear but as each person's body is different, the fit may vary from person to person.

    Do these headphones also AMPLIFY sound? I*m a little deaf and the sound level from my laptop is not loud enough.

    df1995

    There is an internal amplifier to drive the active circuity. You may properly match your headphones with the proper source and will find additional helpful information here: http://blog.audio-technica.com/audio-solutions-question-week-use-headphone-amplifier-headphones/

    Is there a special way to get these headphones to be discoverable? I can't see them with my phone or my laptop.

    Jeremy

    Thanks for your inquiry. The ANC50iS is not bluetooth.

    how do you put in the batteries?

    linda the newbie

    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.

    Marco

    Thank you for your inquiry. No, they do not fold.

    AudioSolutionsManager

    Have had the headphones for two weeks. Battery died and I changed the battery now they do not work. Have tried several different batteries with the same results. Any Suggestions?

    Mark

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