Review: Audio-Technica ATH-ANC70 QuietPoint Noise-Cancelling Headphones



A microphone is built into the headphone, so it can be used with phones.

On the left earcup is a control button that has the logo on it, which can:  play/pause music, answer/end calls, and change music tracks (back/next).  A volume control and switch, to enable the noise-cancelling feature, is also on the left earcup. (For more information about noise cancelling go to )

One AAA rechargeable or disposable battery is needed to power noise-cancelling.  I experienced that removing and replacing the battery cover is a bit tricky: sliding the cover up unlocks it…removing it was not simple due to two internal catches.

When I enabled noise-cancellation, it increases volume…and can increase distortion.


Per the Instruction Manual: “Earpads will wear over time. Replacement pads are available from Audio-Technica dealers.” (I wish they would include a spare set.)

The 40 mm drivers give a frequency response of 10 to 25,000 Hz.  I found it to be clean and clear. The bass response is pleasant (and deep).

The carrying case impressed me.  It’s sturdy…I feel confident the headset won’t be easily damaged when I toss it a backpack/bag.

The connector input for the headset is 3.5 mm (1/8-inch).  The cable that is supplied is 1.2 m (3.9 feet) long.  A 6.3 mm (1/4-inch) adapter is included, as well as an airline adapter.


I have loved using them, and give them my blessing.  {insert angelic choir here}
