ATH-ANC33iS QuietPoint® Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones

ATH-ANC33iS QuietPoint® Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones reduce distracting background noise by up to 90% while offering the superior sound that makes Audio-Technica a world-leading pro audio company.
Engineered to create a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise, these in-ear headphones feature a miniature microphone in each earpiece that picks up ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.). Electronics in the QuietPoint control module create a noise-cancelling wave that is 180° out of phase with the ambient noise. This wave acts like a noise eraser: it cancels out the annoying sounds that surround you without diminishing the audio you want to hear. The result…a peaceful enclave to enjoy the music or movies of your choice.
The ATH-ANC33iS in-ear headphones also feature an inline microphone and controller for answering calls and controlling music. The mic and controller support smartphones, iPhones, iPads, many iPods & other compatible devices. The microphone has an omnidirectional pickup pattern and it is designed for crisp intelligibility, so your voice will be clearly transmitted without having to speak directly into the mic.
This product is available at Staples, shopaudiotechnica.com, and other online retailers.

Question

Performance ATH-ANC33iS vs. ATH-ANC23

What are the differences between the ATH-ANC33iS and the ATH-ANC23? Is it just the microphone? Are there any technical audio graphs that show the frequency response comparisons?

Hi,
Will this model have full compatibility with Nokia Lumia series mobile phones? (the website only gives compatibility to iPhone, iPod type of devices).

And do you have a date on when this will be available in US or in Europe (Finland).
Thanks

Thank you for your inquiry. They should be availble in mid April in the US. I cannot address availabilty in Europe since we only cover the Americas on this site. These are designed to work with Apple products. Some or all functionality may or may not work with the Nokia device. There are just too many phones avaialble to test them all.

Unfortunately, the ATH-ANC33iS will not be available for purchase until mid-late April 2013.

However, please check out the following web-page for Audio-Technica headphones with microphones:
http://www.audio-technica.com/cgi-b...

Models that will work with smartphones will have an "i" in the title (example: ATH-CSK55iBK).

Question

About purchasing this item in Australia

I live in Australia. I have a wonderful pair of the audio technica ANC23 noise cancelling ear bud headphones. I would like to get a pair of these for my mobile phone for talking as well, but they do not appear to be available in Australia - not on the Australian audio technica website anyway. Can I purchase them online at your audio technica United States website - and organise postage to Australia?

Our system indicates that the ANC33iS will likely be available through Best Buy starting in late June 2013, or through Staples starting in July 2013 (both in the United States). These are tentative release dates. If you would still like to purchase, please contact either retailer for a more accurate release date.

They should currently be available through Airport Wireless (http://www.airportwireless.com/). If you would like to find out which Airport Wireless stores they are available at, I recommend contacting them.

How to buy - Update?

I've had my eye on these since January. I waited anxiously for the mid-late April date and it has long past. Any update on the delivery to the US? Any suggestions on how I can get a pair, soon?

I keep throwing money at my screen, but nothing is happening. Super-excited about getting my hands on them, exactly what I want.

Question

the music is louder than the vocals

When I plug the headphones into my desktop computer, the music is considerably louder than the vocals - on all recordings on spotify. With my over the ear Bose headphones, I don't have this problem. How can I fix this? Thanks!

In this case, it sounds as if you are experiencing a "phase" issue with your headphones.

To troubleshoot them effectively, please observe the following:

1. Please make certain that your headphones are fully inserted, and that there is nothing (such as a protective-covering) preventing the connector from being fully inserted.
2. Please try the headphones on a different device that supports a headphone connection (such as a smartphone, .MP3 player, etc.). When doing so, please observe the above. If the headphones work on the other device, then there is nothing wrong with your headphones.

If you are still experiencing an issue with your headphones after trying the above, you will have two options:
1. Exchange the headphones at the dealer you purchased, pending their policy.
2. Send them to the Audio-Technica Service Department. For information on obtaining Service with ATUS, please visit www.audio-technica.com/service.

Question

compatibility with vintage portable cassette players

I'm trying to find earbuds that are compatible with vintage portable cassette tape players. The new style earbuds being made today don't work well with the old cassette players, the sound is distorted and too loud even with the volume control on min. I am by no means technically versed in this, but I think it has something to do with the impedance of the speakers. I noticed that the ATH ANC 33is model has double the impedance of your other models. Can someone confirm for me that this model will work well with the old style cassette players?

Thank you for your inquiry. There are two specs to look at when determining how loud a headphone may be. One is impedance. The higher the impedance the harder the audio device has to work to drive the headphones. The other is sensitivity measured in dB. The higher the dB's the louder the headphone will be. So, a headphone with a 16 ohms impedance at 109 dB of sensitivity will be louder than one with at 32 ohms and 103 dB.
