When you’re on a plane ride or a long car drive, you know how maddening it can be when you want to listen to your iPod or MP3 player—and not any children screaming or other passenger blabbering. You also don’t want to have to block them out by cranking the volume up to 11 and making yourself deaf in the process.
Noise-cancelling headphones and earbuds can be a blessing if they truly do the job. Audio-Technica introduced its latest offerings in this category at last week’s CES.
Audio-Technica’s ATH-ANC3 QuietPoint active in-ear headphones combine 85 percent noise-cancellation with performance and portability, the company says.
These babies detect environmental noise with mini microphones, and cancel signals over a wide frequency range.
The ATH-ANC3 include three sizes of ear tips, and they allow audio to flow freely when the noise-cancelling function is off.
The headphones will available this spring at an MSRP of $169.95.
