About ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint® Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Audio-Technica's ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint® headphones use proprietary active noise-cancelling technology to provide a comfortable listening experience in areas with high ambient noise. The headphones feature two miniature microphones in each earpiece that pick up ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.) and create a sound cancelling signal to effectively block the noise.
ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint® headphones feature Audio-Technica's Tri-Level™ Cancellation - three unique mode settings that offer adjusted active noise cancellation based on the noise in your environment. Mode 1: ideal for use on airplanes, trains, and buses, applies maximum noise cancellation to low frequencies. Mode 2: designed especially for use in noisy offices or crowded places, targets the mid-range frequencies. Mode 3: best suited for use in already-quiet environments like libraries, creates a pristine, peaceful environment ideal for study.
The ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint® headphones are the first over-ear QuietPoint® model to offer a cable with an inline microphone and controller for answering calls and controlling music. The mic and controller support select smartphone models and touchpad devices. The microphone has an omnidirectional pickup patter and is designed for crisp intelligibility, so you voice will be clearly transmitted without having to speak directly into the mic.
Audio-Technica equipment is used by major artists for studio recording and capturing live performances on stage...allowing audiences to experience their work as clearly and fully as it was intended. These headphones are designed to offer you the crystal-clear sound that makes Audio-Technica the choice of leading artists worldwide. Wherever you happen to find yourself - in the comfort of your living room, in a noisy office, or settling in for a long flight, there is no better way to experience audio or immerse yourself in a peaceful environment.

Safe Buying Guide
1) Buy Only From Authorised Dealers
Purchase only from authorised, which ensures you will receive a genuine product and receive high levels of pre and post sales service.
When you buy from an authorised dealer, whether at a shop or online, you can be sure you're buying a genuine, factory-new product. Authorised dealers will have access to the latest product knowledge and be able to offer a full warranty service in the event of problems.
2) Buying Safely From Amazon, eBay, etc
While Amazon themselves are an authorised online dealer of many headphones brands, many resellers who sell through Amazon are not. When purchasing, it is important to note where the product is being "shipped from and sold by," which is stated clearly in the header for each product on Amazon.
Many resellers on eBay selling headphone products are not authorised dealers, but instead are individuals or traders who do not provide the level of before and after sales support that is expected by headphone manufacturers.
3) If In Doubt Ask
If you are in any doubt about the retailer you are considering purchasing from please check with us.
Understand The Risks
If you purchase headphones from an unauthorised you risk the possibility of receiving faulty, fake or even stolen goods with little hope of obtaining warranty support in the event that the product develops a fault.
Unfortunately, Audio-Technica products are sometimes sold by companies that are not authorised dealers. Goods sold by these unauthorised companies may come from a variety of sources, including:
- Purchased via a grey secondary market (often from outside Europe that will not have warranty cover).
- Fake goods not produced by the manufacturer.
- Damaged, defective or so-called “B” grade stock.
- Stolen goods.
Many of these unauthorised resellers list products via Amazon Marketplace, eBay and similar sales outlets, but there are also more established retail stores who obtain stock via these unauthorised channels. If you are in any doubt, please contact Audio-Technica prior to making your purchase or check our dealer databases of authorized resellers:
The following websites are known resellers of fake Audio-Technica headphones.
The following websites are non-authorized resellers of Audio-Technica headphones and Audio-Technica strongly recommends European customers do NOT purchase from these stores:
In addition, Audio-Technica strongly advises customers against buying from eBay, or from any website where the price appears unusually low.
