’s miniature microphones at the top of each earcup feed signals into the headphones’ sophisticated noise-cancellation circuitry, which creates a signal 180-degrees out of phase to effectively cancel ambient noise. Proprietary (patent-pending) noise-cancelling and venting technologies work together to maintain Hi-Res Audio reproduction in both passive and active-noise-cancelling modes. Locating the mics on the top, instead of the side of the earcup ensures consistent noise-cancellation performance unaffected by the listener’s head movement or wind noise. An internal rechargeable battery powers the ATH-MSR7NC’s noise-cancelling function for up to 30 hours.
The Audio-Technica ATH-SR5BT
wireless Hi-Res Audio headphones with Bluetooth technology also employ aptX® sound-improvement technology, specifically created to yield the best-possible audio performance over a Bluetooth transmission. The ATH-SR5BT remembers up to eight wireless devices for ready pairing with the listener’s favorite audio sources. Adding or replacing devices is simple thanks to the ATH-SR5BT’s NFC (Near Field Communication) functionality – simply touch any NFC-compatible device to the “N” logo on the headphones and the device and headphones are automatically paired and connected. The ATH-SR5BT also comes with a handy carrying pouch. The ATH-SR5BT is available in black (ATH-SR5BTBK
