AUDIO -TECHNICA ATH -ANC7 NOISE -CANCELLING HEADPHONES WIN INNOVATIONS DESIGN AND ENGINEERING AWARD

STOW, OH, November 15, 2007 - Audio-Technica today announced that its ATH-ANC7 QuietPoint™ noise-cancelling headphones have received a CES Innovations 2008 Design and Engineering award from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA).

The ATH -ANC7 headphones effectively block environmental noise, while delivering clear and natural sound.


Ideal for use with portable music and DVD players, laptop computers and in -flight entertainment systems, the ATH -ANC7 headphones utilize exclusive QuietPoint active noise -cancellation technology that eliminates 85% of outside noise.

The ATH -ANC7 delivers the high -resolution audio quality that has made Audio -Technica headphones a favorite with consumers, recording engineers and artists. It features large -aperture 40 mm drivers with powerful neodymium magnet systems for deeper bass, accurate midrange and extended treble. The headphones' high sensitivity and wide 10 - 25,000 Hz frequency response provide exceptional fidelity from any music source. The ATH -ANC7 also works when the noise -cancelling function is turned off, and operates in passive mode without batteries.

The headphones fold flat for storage and come with a detachable cable (with a standard 3.5 mm mini -plug; the cable can be removed for noise -cancelling functionality without audio), a full -size 1/4 -inch adapter, an airline adapter for connection to in -flight entertainment systems, and a hard, durable carrying case.

The Audio -Technica ATH -ANC7 active noise -cancelling headphones are available at Apple Store® locations and at other authorized dealers at a U.S. MSRP of $219.95.
