Audio-Technica ATHANC3 Earphones

Building on the success of the award-winning ATHANC7, Audio-Technica's ATHANC3 QuietPoint Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones reduce distracting background noise by 85% while offering the superior sound that makes Audio-Technica a world-leading pro audio company.

Engineered to create a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise, these in-ear headphones feature a miniature microphone in each earpiece that picks up ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.). Electronics in the control box create a noise-canceling wave that is 180 degrees out of phase with the ambient noise. This wave acts like a noise eraser: it cancels out the annoying sounds that surround you without diminishing the audio you want to hear. The result...a peaceful enclave to enjoy the music or movies of your choice.

Wherever you happen to find yourself -- on a busy subway, in a noisy office, or settling in for a long flight -- there is no better way to experience audio or immerse yourself a quiet environment. Discover your QuietPoint.

Features:

- Ultra-compact in-ear design is ideal for travel
- Advanced electronics cancel up to 85% (20 dB) of background noise
- Innovative ANC circuitry delivers an exceptionally pure audio signal in noise-cancelling mode
- Ideal for use with all audio sources, including MP3 & other portable players
- Soft interchangeable ear pieces (small, medium & large) provide a custom fit
- Monitor switch deactivates noise cancellation/audio so you can listen outside when you need to
- Audio functions (in passive mode) even without battery
- Sleek control box offers on/off and monitor switches and clothing clip
- Two-pin airline adapter connects to in-flight entertainment
- Hard carrying case protects headphones & accessories
- Y cable includes an adjustable sleeve and extension for secure, comfortable fit
- A single AAA battery powers noise-canceling electronics
- Gold-plated mini-plug provides exceptional corrosion resistance, superb conductivity and low noise

"Do not buy if you plan to use it with an iPhone"
Sound: Horrible noise from cell phones interference -- the noise cancellation circuit picks all the cell phone-to-tower transmission bursts (the buzz sound you hear when you place your cell phone close to a speakerphone). Works OK with iPods and other sources. If you don't use your phone as music device you may be OK with these headphones. Feature: OK in features, nice pouch Ease of Use: Nice controls, easy to use Quality: Cheap plastic feel of the earbuds Value: If you don't use your phone as music device you may be OK with these headphones. But if you do, save yourself the trouble and don't buy these - go with a Bose or a Sony, that as far as I can tell, don't have this problem Manufacturer Support: No idea Overall: Pros: OK noise cancellation, nice carry-on pouch, decent sound Cons: Cheap plastic feel of the earbuds, horrible noise from cell phones interference -- the noise cancellation circuit picks all the cell phone-to-tower transmission bursts (the buzz sound you hear when you place your cell phone close to a speakerphone) Summary: Works OK with iPods and other sources. If you don't use your phone as music device you may be OK with these headphones. But if you do, save yourself the trouble and don't buy these - go with a Bose or a Sony, that as far as I can tell, don't have this problem

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
