Audio-Technica ATH-ANC300TW earbuds review: Exceptional sound, questionable value

Audio-Technica's been making audio equipment for almost 60 years. In that time, it's earned a reputation for making great, no-nonsense headphones. Its newest true wireless earbuds, the ATH-ANC300TW, play to the company's strengths: they're straightforward and sound incredible. But they're also simple to a fault, failing to offer high-tech features I've come to expect in premium true wireless sets — and that makes the prospect of spending $230 on them dubious.

Audio-Technica announces its first true wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation

Japanese companies are going big on true wireless buds with active noise cancellation. Sony was among the first to launch such a device, with Panasonic announcing its own range just yesterday. It's now rival Audio-Technica's turn to unveil a pair of true wireless earbuds with ANC at CES.

Review: Audio-Technica's $300 noise-cancelling headphones offer great sound quality and not much else

The ~$300 active noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphone market is heating up. Bose was arguably the pioneer of the segment, but many other audio companies have since thrown their hats into the ring. One of the latest entrants is Audio-Technica, a company with plenty of reputation to uphold.

Having spent several weeks with the ATH-ANC900BT, I've found that it's deserving of the Audio-Technica logos on it in terms of sound quality, but it falls short in other arenas. It reminds me a lot of the Bose QuietComfort 35 II in many ways, both good and bad. Ultimately, I don't think it's worth the $299 asking price given all of the issues.

Audio-Technica announces high-end ATH-ANC900BT noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones

Audio-Technica is a fan-favorite manufacturer of comparatively reasonably priced, high-quality audio gear. The company announced a slew of new products at CES this year, including several pairs of new additions to its noise-canceling QuietPoint line. Among those are the ATH-ANC900BT, a pair of high-end wireless cans meant to compete with the likes of the Sony WH-1000XM3.

[Deal Alert] Audio-Technica's Uber Popular M40x & M50x Headphones On Sale For $64.99 & $117.95

Audio-Technica's M40x and M50x headphones are some of the best loved headphones in existence. Rocking a 4.6 star rating on Amazon with over 2,200 reviews, the M50x is a shoo-win for the 'Most Popular' award in the audio device high school yearbook. They sound great, are well built, fit comfortably, and aren't terribly expensive.

Especially today, as they are currently on sale. Amazon has the M40x for an all-time low at $64.99 and the M50x for just $117.95 – which is also a great price for that set of cans. If you, like me, live in a state where Amazon charges sales tax, then you may choose to pick up the M40x for the same price through Adorama instead (make sure you use the provided link or the discounted price won't appear).

[Deal Alert] White Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Headphones Are Just $99 At Adorama ($140 Off Retail)

If you're looking for some high-grade headphones to get you through that insufferable plane ride or 12-hour road trip that's looming in a few weeks, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better deal than the one Adorama has right now. The online electronics store is selling Audio-Technica's ATH-M50x, a studio-grade set of around-the-ear wired headphones, for just $99. That's $70 off of Adorama's regular price, and a whopping $140 cheaper than Audio-Technica's recommended retail price. The white version is the only one available, but it's even cheaper than the Amazon deal from a couple of weeks ago.

The ATH-M50x features a fold-up design for compact storage, 45mm drivers, a detachable headphone cord (with no less than three included coiled and straight cables), a 15-28,000Hz frequency range, and an included carrying case.

[Deal Alert] Audio Technica's ATH-M40X Hits All-Time $67 Low On Amazon, ATH-M50X Is $119 With $25 Gift Card On Adorama

Among our favorite wired headphone brands, Audio Technica sits conveniently toward the top of the list, and we're not alone in thinking that. Amazon customers and people who know more about sound and audio signatures than me like and recommend them as well. If you've been wanting to grab a pair for a while or you just want to supplement your headphone collection with a relatively cheap but good addition, today's your day.

Amazon has the Audio Technica ATH-M40X at an all-time low. According to Camelx3, these usually retail around the $99 mark, and very rarely dip below the $80 line. At $67, they might be getting close to impulse-buy territory, especially since they're almost as cheap as the M30X (which are around $54 now).

[Deal Alert] Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Available At Their Lowest Price Ever On Amazon - $119.99 - Sale Ends At Midnight PST

Earlier this week I posted a deal for a pair of super bass heavy cans, the Sony Bluetooth Extra Bass Headphones. While that set of over-ear audio blasters appealed to some listeners, others may prefer a more balanced sound profile. If that's the style of headphones you're after, you'd be hard pressed to find a pair more popular than the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x. Today, they just happen to be available for their lowest price ever at $119.99, ten bucks off their previous low.

I could write a paragraph extolling the virtues of M50x's, but I won't. If you want to know why they are so well liked, you can find out for yourself by reading some of the nearly 2,500 reviews on Amazon, which award the headphones an average score of 4.7 stars.

[Deal Alert] Audio Technica's ATH-M50x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones Are Down To $129 Again, This Time As Part Of Amazon's Goldbox

Just five days ago, we shared with you a rather short-lived deal on Audio Technica's stellar Professional Studio Monitor headphones where the M30x and M40x were discounted 20% while the M50x was down $40 to $129. At the time, you needed to enter a coupon code to benefit from the offer, but it was still positively received because of its value. The deal is back today only on the M50x, and it's even easier now since you don't have to bother with coupons.


Both the black and white version of the headphones are discounted again to $129, $40 off the regular selling price of $169 ($110 off the original MSRP of $239).
