The Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23 is my first pair of earphones with Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) feature. It is a feature that I had been looking for to snuff out background noises while doing my work. My sister helped to get it at ¥6300 (~S$79).
I pretty glad that the Audio-Technica’s QuietPoint technology works although I don’t know how does it compares to others (i.e. Bose QC20). My preference is in-ear earphones over headphones. Hence the choice of Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23. I guess I will need to try it for a couple of days more to know how good or bad is it.
