    This is my first pair of noise-canceling headphones so I haven't compared to other units. I bought this because I had a special discount for a purchase at Staples. I have found them to be especially useful for listening to music while mowing the lawn or performing other noisy tasks. I haven't yet tried them for traveling. They don't suppress background noise as much as I expected but they work well enough for me to be able to clearly hear music while I am mowing. I can still hear the lawnmower but it is not overpowering and it is probably safer that I can still hear some ambient sounds. The strap between the earpieces does not seem to be long enough for my head so I have to position it across the back of my head rather than across the top which seems odd. It works in that orientation but seems a little awkward. I have carefully checked and can't find any way to extend the ear pieces further so don't know if this is just a quirk of my particular set or if this is an odd feature of this model. I like the case for the headphones and believe it may be useful for traveling. Overall, especially for the price I paid (about $70), I find them adequate. Not sure I would want to pay much more.

    I have the in-ear noise cancelling buds from the same maker and thought this pair would be an even better headphone for travel but I'm not THAT impressed. I like the in-ear set better as I think it has just as good noise cancelling and sound as this does.

    They are really great -- price / performance wise when compared to the Bose and other products. I am very pleasantly surprised.

    Very Good Choice

    Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7b QuietPoint® Active Noise-cancelling Headphones:

    I bought these because the Staples price was just too good not to try. They will be replacing some Maxell noise cancelling phones I had been using for years. The Maxell were reasonably good at blocking some of the airplane noise and improving the audio. I also had used the Bose whenever I flew business class on American, so I have some comparison.

    The Audio-Technica headphones look and feel very much like the Bose unit. When you put them on and power them up, things get very quiet. I have only been able to try them standing next to my furnace, and they do a very good job.

    These headphones are supposed to still function when the battery is dead. When listening to music or a movie with the noise cancelling turned off, I find it very difficult to hear the material, so I will only use them with the noise cancelling on.

    The other thing I notice is that the sound is very "bright". When listening to a movie the dialog is very distinct and with one movie I could even hear torches flicking. At first I did not like this and thought the bass performance was poor, but listening to music I find it is very good. However I am not an audiophile.

    The other thing I noticed is that I have a large head and the ear cups do not extend below my earlobe, but they are comfortable resting on them, just some getting used too.

    I have read several reviews commenting about how fragile the pivots of the headphones are. I can see where that might be an issue if one were to be pulling on the earpieces while extending the headband before putting them on. I think it best to extend the band by grasping the two section of the headband. Time will tell.

    I have now bought a second pair for my wife for when we travel.

    Great deal and great quality!

    Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7b QuietPoint® Active Noise-cancelling Headphones:

    These headphones were on sale and out of stock online, so had to go to the store to pickup. Was worth it! The sounds is great and the noise reduction appears to work very well. I have not traveled on an airplane yet, but other reviews said they were also good for air travel. I like that the audio cord connects on both the device and the headset, so the cord can be replaced if necessary. Also it comes with a nice case, and adapters for other devices types. Would definitely recommend these.

    Great Product, but Tight Fit

    By DMartin

    from Michigan

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7b QuietPoint® Active Noise-cancelling Headphones:

    Because my son loves his Audio-Technica ATH-M50 headphones, and after reading a few reviews of the ATH-ANC7b headphones, I thought I would give them a try on a recent trip. While both the noise cancelation and sound were excellent, the fit for me was rather tight - tighter than the M50's. My fitted hat size is about 7 3/4, I have big ears (according to my kids), and I wear glasses. These fit over my ears with my glasses on, but were a rather tight fitting. I wish they would expand just one more notch or so, which would be more comfortable for a big head. During a four-hour flight, I had to take them off a couple of times, for less than a minute each time, to rub where my glasses and ears were pinching against my head. If they were just a little bigger, I would give them five stars.
