Style Name: ANC27 Over the EarSize: ANC27 Over the EarPackage Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
I purchased a set of Audio Technica ATH-ANC27 Noise Canceling headphones five months ago because I was working in noisy places and also doing a fair amount of traveling. I have found these headphones to be a reasonable compromise between low end headphones and the high end $300 Bose models.

This type of noise canceling technology is best at counteracting smooth, steady sounds such as the incessant roar of the jet's engines, or the whir of a computer server's fans. When you put them on and turn on the switch, these sounds magically disappear. Conversations and other random types of noises are muffled but do not disappear.

When you travel by air twice a week, as I am doing, noise canceling technology really makes a difference. It just makes the flight time go by faster and more pleasantly. Similarly, when you are working in an office with lots of noise, it minimizes the noise and puts you into a kind of cocoon of privacy.

The phones use a single AAA battery and I have found that it lasts quite a long time. Typically I change the battery about every 2-3 weeks. I don't use the phones all day every day, but probably about 20 hours a week, so I would say it uses power very efficiently. An LED indicates when the phones are on (unfortunately it makes it easier for flight attendants to spot it and make you turn them off during takeoff/landing, silly though it sounds). The on/off switch is easy to find with your fingers and the phones do work if the battery's dead or the switch is off, albeit they don't sound quite as good and of course there's no noise canceling.

As headphones go, these are middle-of-the-road quality, with good bass and moderate high end.

Style Name: ANC27 Over the EarSize: ANC27 Over the EarPackage Type: Standard Packaging
Initial impressions (may add more later on) - currently my rating is ~3.5, leaning towards 3 instead of 4:

This model seems to targeting the lower-end models of other brands, Sony's and JVC's mainly. I have to admit, compared to them, it performs better. (the same can also be said for ATH-ANC1, as it is targeting the market for the highly popular Sennheiser models and in my opinion, Audio Technica did pretty well in that aspect)

Noise-canceling is there, but so is the hissing. Unlike the more expensive ATH-ANC7 model, this model introduces a fair amount of hissing. But, since the hissing stays at a constant level and does not vary in time unlike other noise-canceling headphones (like all the Able-planet models that I tried), it does not have the potential of causing headaches, so for me this is acceptable. The performance of the noise-canceling is also acceptable. I think, if you exclude the hissing, the performance is similar to the ATH-ANC7 model (cannot say it is a golden standard but pretty close).

Regarding the design, well, not unexpectedly it is also on the lower-end of the scale. I think the outer layer of the cups is designed fairly well. The problem is mostly related to the padding. Also, they kept the size of the padding section of the earcups pretty small, so unless you have small ears, you may have hard time fitting inside. Also the material used for the padding is a bit on the tougher side. It is not soft and that means longer listening periods may become quite uncomfortable. I am guessing the same material is also used for the headband, which gives an enhanced discomfort effect!

Style Name: ANC27 Over the EarSize: ANC27 Over the EarPackage Type: Standard Packaging
While I appreciate user reviews, I forego them when Consumer Reports tests a product. I also consider others (like CNET, PC Magazine, etc.) over Amazon.com users.

For this product, I clipped and pasted CR's report. The Bose QuietComfort 15 and Sony MDR-NC500D were one notch better in noise cancellation, and at $300 and $400 respectively, you should just buy one of them if you can afford it. Otherwise, if you're looking at others, your price point is lower and you prefer a better bargain.

***********************************
CR's Take
This model from Audio-Technica delivers very good sound quality and very good active noise reduction, but the combination on/over-the-ear fit may be cramped for those with bigger ears. These headphones have a closed design, so they will muffle some external sounds apart from the active noise cancellation, and limit the amount of sound that escapes from the headphones. They are best suited for those who want to reduce the amount of noise they hear from their surroundings, or who don't want the sound from the headphones to disturb others, and who are comfortable with the size of a home/studio style model.
Detailed test results
This home/studio-style, over-ear noise canceling model will work with or without the noise-canceling feature being activated, and you can use the noise-canceling feature without listening to music. The audio cable is detachable if you want to use the headphones for noise reduction only. This model has a closed design and electronic noise canceling that reduces both outside noise and sound leaking out into your environment. The headphones have high sensitivity when the noise-canceling feature is turned on, and medium high sensitivity when it's turned off.
