Great value for money

I bought these in preparation for a 15 hour flight. Worked like a charm! Noise cancelling is excellent, managed to sleep well on the flight because of it. Removable cable made moving around on the flight without removing the headphones possible. I took extra batteries in case but so far I am still on the original one.

Works very well in noisy office and on airplanes

By

from NJ

I have had these headphones for over a year and I like these headphones a lot. They work very well and are comfortable on long distance flights and make a huge difference. You would be amazed how much nicer it is in cattle class with these headphones! The only problem I have had is that somehow the cell-phone type cable broke even though I haven't been using it.

Comfortable and great sound quality but...

By

from Jacksonville, FL, USA

They are comfortable, sound great and look nice. After a couple of months of use the active cancelling started acting up. Now I have a low rumbling/vibrating driver on the left side of the set. This only happens when the NC switch is on but I use the noise cancelling all the time meaning that it happens often. This is very annoying specially when tilting my head to my right side, this makes the rumbling/vibration even more pronounced. I will be contacting the service center to see if this can be fixed but this shouldn't happen at all. Reading the other reviews I noticed that others are experiencing the same issue.

Great sound, but battery sits too loosely

By

from Colac VIC 3250, Australia

I have been using these headphones for more than 2 years and have not experienced any of the problems described here by some users. These headphones are comfortable to wear for long periods and they certainly block out a lot of engine noise. The sound is smooth, detailed and focused, with the tightest bass that I have ever heard. However there is one major issue due to poor design of the battery compartment. Most products that use AAA batteries rely on one of the terminals having a small amount of flexibility or springiness so that the battery, once fitted is constantly pressing against both terminals and will not suddenly disconnect if knocked. This is something that has apparently been overlooked by the designers of these headphones, as the battery fits very loosely, with very little pressure against the terminals. I travel on a bus often and whenever the bus hits a bump in the road, the battery disconnects and the sound cuts out. This is extremely annoying.

noise cancelation stops working

By

from Fort Knox, ky

Bought this headphones for noise cancelation. Noise cancelation stopped working after a month of use. Right side always got a annoying rumbling sound. Sound quality is great. Useless headphones though. I would not recommend buying these. One star because it failed at its main purpose. Lot of people having the same issues

Just got my ANC9 and enjoying them!

By

from Tampa, Florida

I've had the Bose QC15 and Soul SL300 in the past but I prefer my new ACN9 over them. I like the sound quality over both previous headphones and the noise cancellation is almost as good as the QC15. It does produce stronger bass which I prefer, but overall the sound quality is well defined. The headphones are very comfortable and appear to be well made. I’ve had them for only a couple of days so reliability is undetermined. I did recommend this same pair to my friend who travels often. He went with me when I purchased mine and he borrowed it over lunch. We went right back to the store and he bought the other pair in stock. I did purchase the extended warranty thru my retailer so I don’t have to deal with some of the issues I’ve read about on this website.

Really happy

By

from Panama  -  Frequent Traveler

I bought it right before a 5-hour flight. I wore it all along and they fit comfortably. I did feel the urge to lift them from time to time to refresh my ears, but I guess that is normal when you enclose them with something for that long. The sound was really good, though I am not an expert in the field. The one thing I can definitively say is that the investment was well worth it.

Quality Problems

By

from Undisclosed

Seems I have the same problem as many other posting their review here... The noise cancelling device stopped working after a year (first the left ear and now the right one)

Best noise-cancelling ever!

By

from Brazil

The quality of sound speak for himself. I have tried Beats By Dre and Bose, but the best combination of precise sound and huge noise canceling is present in ATH-ANC9. They still working after battery runs out (but without noise canceling, of course) and the control cable shipped with product works both with my Nexus 4 android phone and my Ipod / Ipad. Battery life is about 15h with rechargeable NiMh.Awesome.
