I can concur with all that is written in this review. I use the headphones primarily when flying (which is a lot). Best of all, I use the noise cancellation to sleep peacefully – I leave them switched on even when not watching a movie or listening to music.They do leak sound when in quieter environments, but I tend not to have the volume high, so the intrusion is minimal to those around.The handy carry pouch is fantastic and fits easily into my laptop bag – the protective pouch idea is something the makers of “portable” headphones should take note of.In short, I recommend these headphones without reservation.Tom Phillips (South Africa)
My comments 100% true going off my own experience from my newly purchase of the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7b...NC headphones, firstly,,we buy headphones based on there sound Quality and clarity, the sound is very good well balanced in bass/mid/trebthe sound and stereo imaging is very good indeed allowing the user to hear music passing form one ear to the other eg, guitars good stereo imaging, they are sound crisp warm and rich, not! so much treble. and in my thoughts surpassing the Bose equivalents in regards to sound Quality,the noise Canceling works well as of my my testing in noisy environments however there is more improvement on the more higher ANC9 model from Audio-technical as of the extra microphones and electronics. bass is deeper and powerful as is treble on the ANC9,,, Build Quality on the ATH-ANC7b could be better however just care for your headphones, the case supplied is superb and so well made and along with to sound cables supplied with adapters and battery makes this a nice package, you cna get these headphones for £120/£75 depending on supplier.
the build Quality could be better although I have paid more for less satisfaction the sound is very good and is much better indeed than the beats/bose/sony equivalents.
You can find them for as little as £71 now, which is an absolute bargain.
