Unveiled yesterday at CES, Audio-Technica is making headphones to compete with Bose’s QC line and Sony’s 1000X series.
The ATH-ANC900BT is a wireless ANC headphone with Bluetooth 5.0 support. Its juiciest features are a slightly more manageable price ($300, which makes it $50 cheaper than a new pair of QC-35IIs or 1000XM3s) and an estimated 35-hour runtime with ANC activated — longer than either of its primary competition. A companion app allows users to adjust noise cancellation levels, hear-through, ambient noise and so on.
