Audio-Technica has introduced its new ATH-ANC7b QuietPoint noise-canceling headphones, an updated version of its prior ATH-ANC7 model. The ATH-ANC7b offers the same 85% active noise cancellation as its predecessor, but offers several improvements, including a more natural tonal balance, redesigned, more comfortable earcups, and easier battery access. Other features include 40mm neodymium-magnet drivers, a fold-flat design and included carrying case for travel, and the ability to operate in passive mode without batteries. Audio-Technica’s ATH-ANC7b QuietPoint noise-canceling headphones will be available in August and will sell for $220.
