Audio-Technica began to take the Indian market seriously a few years ago. The Japanese brand now offers almost its entire range in India. The latest addition to the ATH stable is the QuietPoint Wireless In-Ear headphones with the now popular neckband design.
Audio-technica ATH-ANC40BT QuietPoint Test
Audio-technica ATH-ANC40BT QuietPoint is a Bluetooth headset with a neckband design. It's unique because there are very few in this form factor that offer noise reduction. So there is a sturdy, rubberized band that is placed around the neck and has flat ends at both ends to hold the battery. The right-hand tip has a larger power button and smaller buttons on the side to adjust the volume and activate noise cancellation. At this end, behind a flap, there is a micro USB port for charging.
The ATH-ANC40BT is easy to pair and remembers the devices it's paired with. I've used the headphones on a recent trip to the south and the noise cancellation is very effective and can effectively neutralize the aircraft's drone. In fact, I often used it without music, just winking at one eye or collecting my thoughts.
The audio quality as you hear from an audio Technica headphones are expected to be very good. It is versatile and works well with all types of music. It can withstand even high volumes. Since traveling a bit with these headphones, I've managed to discover a bit of new music, like the soulful In My Blood by Shawn Mendes, and I really enjoyed the experience. Although wireless and in the ear, the sound is deep and rich enough to dip into.
I have the ATH During the morning walks, which are also sporadic, Hanc, Sprints and the headphones stayed where they should, as was one small notch on the earbuds that hold them in place. The battery life may take about 10 hours when fully charged. The call quality is good too.
The ATH-ANC40BT is among the best that you can buy with Noise Canceling in the collar form factor. It's good for a workout or work. It's hard to find a mistake with the headphones. However, you must look at the Sennheiser Momentum in-ear earphones before choosing the ATH-ANC40BT because it is a little more affordable, but with no noise reduction.
Audio-technica ATH-ANC40BT QuietPoint Price in India – Rs 17,990
