LAS VEGAS, NV, January 7, 2008 - CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW (CES) - Audio-Technica today announced the introduction of its ATH-ANC3 QuietPoint™ active noise-cancelling in-ear headphones.
The ATH -ANC3 employs patented technology that detects environmental noise via miniature microphones incorporated into each ear bud, and applies a corresponding sound -cancelling signal. To achieve its superior performance in blocking 85% of outside noise, the ATH -ANC3 utilizes active noise cancellation over a wide frequency range, unlike some in -ear headphones that actively cancel low frequencies only.
The ATH -ANC3 is ideal for use on airplanes and trains, while jogging or exercising, or anywhere users want to listen to the music - and just the music. Designed for total comfort and convenience, the ATH -ANC3 is supplied with three sizes of ear tips (small, medium and large) for a customized fit. It features a compact control unit with a monitor switch that mutes all functions, to let users hear important outside announcements and conversations. The ATH -ANC3's audio functions when its noise -cancelling function is turned off, and it can be used without batteries. Like all Audio -Technica products, the ATH -ANC3 is designed to deliver clear, high -resolution sound, with outstanding bass response, midrange detail, high -frequency extension and imaging. It can also be used in noise -cancelling -only mode without audio.
The ATH -ANC3 is supplied with a hard, durable carrying case, an adjustable cable and additional extension cable, an airline adapter for connection to in -flight entertainment systems, a clothing clip and an AAA battery. Available in a color choice of black or white, the ATH -ANC3 is the latest addition to the Audio -Technica QuietPoint lineup, which includes the award -winning ATH -ANC7 active noise -cancelling headphones.
The Audio -Technica ATH -ANC3 active noise -cancelling in -ear headphones will be available in
spring 2008 at a U.S. MSRP of $169.95.
