Eliminating background noise with Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9
Everyone could use a good pair of noise canceling headphones. You will be grateful for it when you are on an airplane where the engine noise and screaming children are driving the other passengers nuts and you can enjoy your music or movies with minimal background noise. The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC9 headphones can provide you with this, along with much more.
The ANC9’s come with several accessories. There is a convenient carrying case for travel, an airplane adapter and a 3.5 mm to ¼ inch jack for amps and DJ equipment. The headphones themselves have a straight forward design. It provides cushioned ear cups which are both comfortable and serve to block a good amount of noise too. This lets you use the headphones without activating the noise canceling feature in environments that have only mild noise. This preserves sound quality and prevents draining the battery. For the noisier situations, Audio Technica built in 2 microphones on each ear cup to capture sound and allow the headphones to produce the correct canceling noise. Lastly, what pair of headphones would be complete today without a built in mic to let you make and receive calls without having to take them off your head.
In real life situations, the ANC9’s work fantastic. They provide excellent noise canceling and let users choose between 3 different settings airplane, office, and study (equivalent to a low, medium, and high amount of noise canceling) so that users can select the optimal level to block out noise while still preserving sound quality to the fullest. No matter what setting you are on however, the ANC9 will provide you with excellent bass, treble and overall sound quality.
