Size: ANC27 Over the Ear 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.

Size: 7.70in. x 3.60in. x 1.70in. Verified Purchase
Edit: I've long since used these on an airplane, including a flight from Philadelphia to Tokyo. They did a miraculous job of filtering out the engine noise on the jet, making them even better than i praise them in the initial review below!


I thought that surely i'd be returning these with disappointment but thought affordable, active noise-canceling earbuds would be great if they worked so it was worth the risk. Not only do they work, they work like a miracle. I haven't used these on an airplane yet but i've been finding noisy stuff to test them around. My apartment's A/C is completely muted when these are on, in fact if i leave them on over the course of an hour i can only tell the A/C is on because air starts blowing on me. Normally i have to turn my TV up when it kicks on because the A/C is on the other side of the far wall with the air return vent visible from the couch.

The dishwasher is reduced from its normal volume to a swishing sound, the collective sound of all the apartments in the courtyard outside simultaneously air conditioning is eliminated, and even the white noise generator my wife uses to sleep turns to silence. What these will NOT quiet are sudden noises and high-pitched noises. I've seen noise-canceling headphones that can handle sudden noises but these require the noise to be regular, so talking passes right through. When i run my Roomba, the vacuum motor's sound is removed by the headphones but the wheel motors make a high-pitched whine that gets through unphased. This is because they are earbuds so they can't insulate against high-frequency sounds like headphones can.

These get 5 stars from me because they do what they say they will within the expected limitations of the materials used.

Size: ANC27 Over the Ear
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!
