#CES2019 – Audio-Technica is a company known for their headphones, and if you’re in the market for new wireless, noise-cancelling headphones, the company doesn’t disappoint because at CES 2019, Audio-Technica has unveiled a handful of new headphones that are part of its QuietPoint lineup.
For those unfamiliar, the QuietPoint series from Audio-Technica are headphones that feature noise-cancellation technology. Leading the charge of this new lineup is the ATH-ANC900BT which will use the company’s digital hybrid active noise-cancellation technology. According to the company, it has the highest degree of ambient noise reduction of any of the QuietPoint models released to date, along with Hi-Res, aptX, and Bluetooth 5.0 compatibility. Audio-Technica is also boasting 35 hours of battery life in a single charge.
There will also be the ATH-ANC500BT which has a battery life of around 20 hours, and the ATH-ANC100BT which uses smaller 12mm drivers and has a battery life of about 10 hours. The former along with the ATH-ANC900BT are both over-ear headphones, meaning that the cups will sit around your ears instead of on them. The ATH-ANC100BT on the other hand is an in-ear model which does help make it more portable.
All three headphones are expected to be made available this spring and will be priced at $299 for the ATH-ANC900BT, and $99 for the other two models.
