Engadget Summary

Audio-Technica's QuietPoint headphones provide noise-canceling capabilities and sound quality that are similar to what you'll find on models like the Bose QuietComfort 15 -- at a price to match. iLounge says the QuietPoint provides "very good sound and top-shelf noise-canceling" and is "superior" to the QuietComfort 15. PCWorld Australia found that the QuietPoint headphones "sound excellent with great detail and musicality once the noise cancelling amplification circuit is on, but with noise cancelling off the ANC9s lose a lot of their character." However, you may want to keep the noise cancelling turned on, given that PCW calls the feature "excellent" and says it's "amongst the best active noise cancelling we’ve listened to."
