Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint headphones ship

Audio-Technica has unveiled a new set of noise cancelling headphones that aren't the over the ear style that we usually see for active noise cancelling designs. These in-ear headphones promise comfort and can block 90% of external sound. The headphones are also very compact making them perfect for those that travel a lot.

Each of the earpieces has a tiny microphone that picks up the sound in the room and then eliminates it with active tech. The earphones also have innovative ANC circuitry for pure audio signal and good music quality when you listen. The headphones are aimed at uses of earphones and other portable devices.

The earpieces are interchangeable and the noise cancellation tech runs off a battery. If the battery goes dead the user can still use the headphones for listening to music. They ship with a hard case to store the accessories and earphones and the frequency response is 20-20,000Hz. They are available for $99.99 and are shipping now.
