Audio-Technica is exhibiting its QuietPoint® active noise-cancelling ATH-ANC3 in-ear headphones and ATH-ANC7 over-ear headphones, two high-performance models that combine exceptional 85% noise cancellation with outstanding sound quality.

LAS VEGAS, NV, January 8, 2009 - CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW (CES) - At CES 2009, Audio -Technica is exhibiting its QuietPoint® active noise -cancelling ATH -ANC3 in -ear headphones and ATH -ANC7 over -ear headphones, two high -performance models that combine exceptional 85% noise cancellation with outstanding sound quality, comfort and portability.


Both models utilize patented technology that detects environmental noise via miniature microphones incorporated into each earpiece, and applies a corresponding sound -cancelling signal. The ATH -ANC3 and ATH -ANC7 are ideal for use on airplanes and trains, while jogging or exercising, or anywhere users want to listen to the music - and just the music.

ATH -ANC3: Outstanding Noise -Cancelling Performance in a Portable In -Ear Design

Ideal for listeners who prefer an in -ear design, the ATH -ANC3 (SRP: $169.95) 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 in passive mode.

The ATH -ANC3 is designed to deliver clear, high -resolution sound, with outstanding bass response, midrange detail and high -frequency extension. 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.

ATH -ANC7: Award -Winning Sound Quality, Comfort and Convenience

Winner of numerous industry and reviewer awards, the ATH -ANC7 over -ear active noise -cancelling headphones (SRP: $219.95) deliver the exceptional audio quality that has made Audio -Technica headphones a favorite with consumers, recording engineers, artists and reviewers. The ATH -ANC7 features large -aperture 40 mm drivers with powerful neodymium magnet systems for an impactful bass, accurate midrange and extended treble.

Like the ATH -ANC3, 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 ¼ -inch adapter, an airline adapter and a hard carrying case.
