NNoise can­cel­la­tion head­phones are a boon for music lovers, the way they deftly blank out the am­bi­ent sounds and dis­trac­tions. Au­dio-Tech­nica’s newly launched ATH-ANC70 head­phones, which prom­ise to keep noise at bay, are great for long flights or long work days. They are com­fort­able to wear as the mem­ory foam cups are soft on the ears. It comes with 40-mm drivers that of­fer im­pact­ful bass, nat­u­ral mid-range and high tre­ble in pas­sive mode. The sil­ver logo on the left ear cup can be pressed once to play/pause the music or an­swer/end the call, pressed twice to go to the next track and pressed thrice to go to the pre­vi­ous track. Along with vol­ume con­trol, there is a tog­gle that ac­ti­vates ac­tive noise can­cel­la­tion. For this, a re­place­able AAA bat­tery has been added to the right ear cup. Noise can­cel­la­tion, when ac­tive, lives up to the claim of re­duc­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal sound by up to 90 per cent. How­ever, there is slight loss of sound when the ac­tive noise can­cel­la­tion is turned on. The wired head­set comes with a de­tach­able 1.2-me­tre cable with 3.5-mm stereo mini plugs, which have to be plugged in to en­joy au­dio. How­ever, since the 3.5-mm au­dio port has been elim­i­nated from most flag­ship de­vices, a con­nec­tor with a light­ning port and Type C port would have made more sense. But if you wish to use this only for mut­ing sur­round­ing sound, and not to lis­ten to music, the con­nect­ing cable is not re­quired. The head­phones come with a soft-fin­ish hard case with a com­part­ment to store ac­ces­sories such as 6.3-mm stereo adapter, cable and air­line adapter. If you have been plan­ning on buy­ing ac­tive noise can­cel­la­tion head­phones, the ANC70 for ` 13,990 is a sweet deal.
