2012 Best Active Noise Cancellation Headphones
Meet the ATH-NC9s: active noise canceling, over-ear headphones from Audio-Technica. While they don't offer stellar audio performance, they do pass with middling scores and a good level of active noise canceling. Considering that active noise cancellation is technically destructive noise, it's actually very impressive that Audio-Technica was able to manage the performance given by the ATH-ANC9s. They may not be a fit for audiophiles, but they would work famously on an airplane or subway. At an MSRP of $299, you have to be willing to pay if this type of noise canceling is what you want.
