The ATH-ANC40BT QuietPoint in-ear wireless headphones provide the clarity of active noise-cancelling technology with the portability of Bluetooth wireless technology, translating to a more enjoyable listening experience. These earphones block out up to 90% of ambient noise, while the 13.5 mm drivers deliver superior sound reproduction – leading to a crisp and extremely-articulated sound. Bluetooth functionality, along with an in-line mic and controls, provides hands-free operation, allowing you to wirelessly answer/end calls, control music playback, and adjust volume on any Bluetooth-enabled device. Unlike other models, the ANC40BT will pair with up to eight Bluetooth-enabled devices, and can be connected with two of those devices simultaneously – allowing you to switch between devices, or even pass the earphones to a friend for a moment.
Designed and engineered to bestow a comfortable listening environment in areas with loud residual noise, these ‘phones feature a miniature microphone in each earpiece that records unwanted ambient sounds (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.). Then, electronics in the QuietPoint control module emit a noise-cancelling wave that is 180° out of phase with the ambient noise recorded. This wave essentially performs like a noise eraser, cancelling out the ambient outside sounds without negatively impacting the clarity of your tunes. The result: a clear, rich sound free of unwanted distractions.
The ATH-ANC40BT features a convenient neck band design that loops the cable from ear to ear around the back of your neck so you don’t have to deal with any dangling cords. However, the headphones also come with a detachable 1.2 m (3.9′) cable with 3.5 mm stereo mini-plug that can be used to create a standard wired connection – helpful in areas where Bluetooth wireless operation is prohibited or for when the power from the internal DC3.7 lithium polymer battery gets low. Also included are silicone eartips (XS/S/M/L), a 1.0 m (3.3’) USB charging cable, an airplane adapter, and a protective pouch.
