Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23

 

In-ear headphones and the more recently developed “canalphones” deliver amongst the best available passive noise isolation: Pop them in your ears and you might as well be wearing earplugs. It stands to reason, then, that these designs would also be...

Extremely effective noise cancellation ; Open, detailed sound with ample bass ; Comfortable, well-sealed fit ; Very high value

Awkward cable lengths ; Slightly muddy at extreme volumes

Their sonic clarity, strength and agility put the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 canalphones on par with designer models that cost as much as $300 to $400.

Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones First Look

 

The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23s can be used in active (with up to 90% of outside noise eliminated) or passive mode and should have everything you need for those long overseas trips.

If you are a frequent traveler, surely you've looked at a pair of noise-canceling headphones. With memory foam tips which should allow for long listening sessions without discomfort and an included airline adapter, the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23s look to...

Noise cancelling? You've got to be kidding! There is no difference in ambient sound when using the noise cancelling feature alone. There's no difference whether you have the “noise cancelling” feature turned on or off. If these earbuds eliminated a...

Surpisingly good noise reduction

 

If you are going to sit in the back of a B747 for 12 hours or so you need some noise reduction, these are great - comfortable, quiet and good sound reproduction. All in all, a great purchase.

I bought these to replace a pair of damaged over-the-ear noise cancelling headphones which I used for travelling. These earbuds are surprisingly good at reducing the aircraft noise while reproducing mp3s and aircraft movie audio ; A big plus is that...

Not quite as much passive or active noise reduction as my previous over the ear muffs but more than adequate for my purposes

Did not work!

 

The noise canceling worked OK! I looked forward to trying them on my trip to London. They would not pick up the sound for music or TV when plugged in. They never worked on two different types of aircraft that I flew on. The generic earplugs on the...

Not bad!

 

I was expecting somewhat better results, but not disappointed. For me, similar to Sony MDR-NC33.
