Audio-Technica QuietPoint wireless noise-cancelling headphones tunes out the world

During CES, I had the opportunity to check out the Audio-Technica booth in the South Hall, and it combined two things that I really enjoy: massages and music. The instrument of choice is the new ATH-ANC700BT QuietPoint wireless noise-canceling headphones.

CES was busy with people all over, and the event is the perfect place to test out the new QuietPoint headphones. Before I go on, I just want to add that I was able to check out a booth focused on massage chairs, and the thing that took me out of the relaxing mood was the outside noise. Now we’re at the Audio-Technica booth, and here I am sitting face down with a masseuse working on my back. The ATH-ANC700BT QuietPoint wireless over-ear headphones did a great job of knocking out the surrounding noise since I had no idea what was happening other than I was listening to the headphones and getting a massage. I was truly in thought as the soundtrack was the only thing I can hear during my session.

As for the actual audio quality, I was a bit distracted since I was hoping the masseuse would apply more pressure to my back. But what I could focus on were the clear vocals and the tranquil sounds. I can proudly say that the pair of headphones did a great job with canceling noise.

Check out the specs below:

  • Convenient touch and swipe controls built into the earcup
  • Tap earcup to answer calls, play/pause music, and increase and decrease volume
  • Swipe to skip to the next or previous music track
