The Audio-Technica QuietPoint ATH-ANC70 are decent sounding headphones. They do a good job with audio reproduction but lack a little bass. Unfortunately, noise Isolation is very weak and leaves much to be desired. On the upside, they barely leak, so they won't be distracting in quieter environments.
The ATH-ANC70 do not shine in any particular category or use case. This makes them average-at-best as everyday headphones with a few flaws in design and sound.
Average for neutral listening. They reproduce track sufficiently well and will sound good enough for most casual listeners. However, they lack a bit of the ambiance necessary for pure neutral listening due to their closed-back design and slightly inconsistent treble range.
Mediocre for commuting. They're moderately comfortable but have a weak noise isolation which is not ideal for the loud environments of a busy commute
Mediocre-at-best for sports use. These headphones are cumbersome and far too unstable to use while exercising or running.
Decent for office use. They don't leak too much but the weak isolation won't block the chatter of a busy office.
The placement and feel of the buttons are clear enough to avoid any confusion. The volume slider, however, doesn't give enough tactile feedback.
The ATH-ANC70 are decently portable headphones. They have larger ear cups than typical over ear models but have a much thinner headband. The earcups also lay flat or fold up into a more compact format, which makes the relatively big headphones take up less space in a bag. However, they are still too cumbersome to carry on your person and will not fit into large jacket pockets or smaller handbags.
The ATH-ANC70 are not stable headphones. The thin headband and large earcups make these headphones sway a lot during moderate physical activity. They will fall off your head while running and are unideal for use while doing sports. On the upside, they have a detachable cable that should disconnect when hooked by something but because of the weak tension of these headphones, they may fall off before the cable can detach.
The ANC (Active Noise Cancelling) doesn't do very much. It does best at around 200 Hz, offering about 12dB of reduction, which isn't much. At other frequencies, it offers even less noise reduction.
The ANC-70 use standard AAA batteries that give them up to 47 hours of battery life. They do not have additional features like an auto off timer and cannot be used without the batteries. Luckily the two-day continuous battery life means you do not have to swap out the AAA as often especially if you're on a trip or a particularly long flight.
