ATH-ANC300TW Truly Wireless Noise-Cancelling In-ear Headphones

The ATH-ANC300TW is on exhibit at CES 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 1, Booth 20648 (January 7 – 10, 2020).

The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC300TW (SRP: US$249.00) utilizes digital hybrid noise cancellation. In this design, the ANC mics are located both in front of and behind the driver, with one of the ANC mics mounted in a unique horizontal configuration within the sound chamber. This allows the location of the driver and geometry of the chamber to be optimized for an ideal balance of ambient noise reduction and audio performance. The ATH-ANC300TW’s 5.8 mm drivers feature a diamond-like carbon coated diaphragm that combines light weight with rigidity for faster response time and reduced distortion, along with powerful, impactful sound with generous bass response and improved high-frequency extension and clarity.

The ATH-ANC300TW features an easy to use control system that makes it simple and convenient for the listener to control volume and music playback with compatible devices. The headphones support Bluetooth 5.0 and are compatible with aptX® and AAC (as well as SBC) codecs for the best-possible wireless audio reproduction. A useful quick hear-through function allows some ambient sound to be heard if the listener wants to be aware of his or her outside environment. The ATH-ANC300TW also features Qualcomm® TrueWireless™ Stereo Plus, a special low-latency function that ensures that users can stream audio with no disruption and a stable connection.

The ATH-ANC300TW offers up 4.5 hours of music on a single charge and its compact protective carrying case also serves as a charger to provide an additional 13.5 hours of use. The headphones come with XS, S, M and L-sized eartips and a USB-C charging cable. The ATH-ANC300TW’s operation can be customized using the Audio-Technica Connect smartphone app for iOS and Android.

The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC300TW will be available in spring 2020.
