    Audio-Technica Noise Cancelling Headphones - ANC3 & ANC7 comparison

    This article aims to briefly compare Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7 full size headphones with the new ATH-ANC3 in ear sound isolating noise cancelling earphones.

    Noise Cancelling or Sound Isolating?

    Noise cancelling headphones are an excellent choice for air travel and noisy environments, such as computer rooms. The clever electronics in these headphones and earphones does an excellent job of cutting out the low end rumble of aircraft engines and whirring fans. However, be aware that a new highbred earphone is now available that offers the best of active noise cancelling technology, as well as the passive noise blocking of in-ear sound isolating earphones.

    Audio-Technica or Bose?

    So, what noise cancelling headphone manufacturer should you trust? Should you choose a model from the expensive, and highly regarded, Bose noise cancelling headphones range? Or alternatively should you try the far cheaper Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7? Only launched onto the UK market in 2007, Audio-Technica's noise cancelling headphones have quickly become recognised as the best value noise cancelling headphones available. Audio-Technica initially launched the ATH-ANC7 full size noise cancelling heapdhone, and soon afterwards developed the ATH-ANC3 in-ear headphone. Very quickly the ANC7 has become know for offering performance equalling, and possibly surpassing, Bose QC2 or QC3 noise cancelling headphones.

    Noise Cancelling & Noise Isolating

    Instead of full size noise cancelling headphones, you may be looking for an in-ear earphone that also offers active noise cancelling functionality. This type of earphone gives the best of both worlds. Active noise cancelling electronics does an excellent job of removing low frequency, constant noise, but is not so good at cancelling out high frequency irregular noise. On the other hand, sound isolating earphones are good at removing high frequency sounds, but struggle to seal out low frequency noise. Therefore, the match between active noise cancelling and an in-ear sound isolating earphone is actually very good.
