About the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC500BT QuietPoint®

Budget Bluetooth noise cancelers that are beyond basic

I rarely see headphones at this price that include both Bluetooth and active noise cancellation — particularly from an company as well-respected as Audio Technica. The lightweight Audio-Technica ATH-ANC500BT slip over your ears and play music wirelessly from your phone. They also use active noise-canceling circuitry that is designed to best hush constant, lower-frequency sounds like a plane engine or office HVAC unit.

Budget Bluetooth noise cancelers that are beyond basic

I rarely see headphones at this price that include both Bluetooth and active noise cancellation — particularly from an company as well-respected as Audio Technica. The lightweight Audio-Technica ATH-ANC500BT slip over your ears and play music wirelessly from your phone. They also use active noise-canceling circuitry that is designed to best hush constant, lower-frequency sounds like a plane engine or office HVAC unit.

That allows you to listen to music at a more comfortable volume. Audio-Technica's 40mm drivers deliver a smooth, pleasant sound with some deep bass thump. You get up to 20 hours of wireless listening with noise-canceling on a full charge. 

Convenient controls

The ATH-ANC500BT also lets you take phone calls while you're on the go. You'll find buttons on the right earcup for controlling music, volume, and calls.

Features

Overview: The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC500BT QuietPoint over-ear wireless headphones feature proprietary Active Noise-cancelling (ANC) technology to significantly reduce environmental noise so all you hear is your music or phone call. The headphones also add Bluetooth wireless technology and high quality drivers for convenience and high-quality audio performance.

Bluetooth: The headphones are equipped with Bluetooth version 4.1 and a built-in microphone, allowing you to listen to music or your phone calls without a wired connection. The headphones are compatible with A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, and HSP Bluetooth profiles, as well as the SBC codec. Maximum wireless range is 33' (line of sight).

Active Noise Cancelling: Active Noise Cancelling electronically shuts out ambient noise, so you can listen to your music or phone conversation in peace. Built-in microphones pick up environmental noise, while ANC circuitry inverts the signal to cancel out the noise, so all you hear is your music or conversation.

A-T Connect App: The Audio-Technica Connect smartphone app provides additional features for controlling and enhancing the performance of your A-T headphones. With the app, you can control the pairing and unpairing of Bluetooth devices (up to 8). Connect displays the battery level as a percentage, and the Bluetooth codec in use. You can change the Bluetooth codec used by the headphones, and customize the button operation to your preferences. The Connect app is available for iOS devices (10.0 or later) and Android devices (6.0 and up).

On-board Controls: The left earcup has three control buttons for music playback and conducting phone calls. Controls include volume up/volume down, next track, previous track, pause/play, answer call, and end call. There is also a dedicated on/off switch for ANC.

Battery: The Bluetooth and ANR are powered by a built-in 3.7-volt Lithium-polymer rechargeable battery. The battery charges in approximately 4 hours via USB. A fully-charged battery lasts up to approximately 20 hours, with Bluetooth and ANC on, and up to 42 hours with ANC only.

Drivers: The ATH-ANC500BT headphones are equipped with large 40mm drivers for accurate sound reproduction.

Cables: The headphones come with a 50" audio cable with a standard 3.5mm 3-pole stereo mini-plug. Also included is a 15" Micro-B USB charging cable.

Comfort Features: The ear cups and headband have soft memory foam padding to give you maximum comfort. The lightweight design features optimized lateral pressure for less fatigue during long listening sessions.

Specifications:

  • Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20kHz
  • Sensitivity: 96dB/mW (with ANC); 95dB/mW (without ANC)
  • Impedance: 47 ohms (without ANC)
  • Maximum Input Power: 40mW (wired connection)
