Having recently been diagnosed with Hyperacusis, a low tolerance of loud sounds, I purchased these to use on a flight to Croatia.
Once settled in my seat I put the phones on and there was already a reduction in noise from the passive effect of the snug fitting
ear pads, but when I switched on the active noise cancelling circuitry I was absolutely astonished by the peace which descended
on me. A big smile came over my face and a wow from my lips, these things are amazing. The sound quality is excellent also. If
need noise reduction in your life, you need a pair of these.

Honestly, when it comes to comfort, build quality and noise cancellation - there isn't that much between the Bose QC15 headphones (Colleague who sits next to me has them) in terms of effectiveness.

Where these cans set themselves apart is in flexibility and sounds quality.

Firstly, you have 3 cancellation modes which is a nice touch, I won't go through them as its in the product description, suffice to say they are pretty good and do what they say on the tin. (As with all NC cans, they 95% stat is nonsense of course!)

Secondly, there is a passive mode - ie they still work as headphones when not turned on/battery dead. Also, when off there is still the noise cancellation generated by the build of the headphones.
***Bose Headsets WILL NOT PLAY AUDIO UNLESS TURNED ON***

Thirdly, the sound quality - This is really where these headphones win:

I have a pair of Bose QC3 headphones - noise cancellation is laughable and the sound quality is muddy at best and has a huge amount of sound leakage.
Bose QC15 headphones have a better sound quality but still not what you would want from 300 notes!

Audio Technica - Compared to the comparable Bose, its like night and day. You're never going to get stellar sound from active noise cancellation headphones but this is the best I've heard - if you're looking at Bose QC15 - don't believe the hype and get a hold of these!

Very quick review I know, but thought a brief comparison with the Bose headsets might prove useful (Don't even consider QC3)

Really, really good.
Very good at cancelling noise - even a loud diesel engine is reduced to a faint murmur.
Also very good at MAKING noise - at least on par with my studio monitor headphones.
Very comfy - I regularly use them for 2-3 hours at a time and usually forget I'm wearing them.
Super, super chuffed with them.

Handy that they can be used without power, but be aware that they sound pretty lame in comparison to when the power is on.

Superb, headphones in every regard.

Firstly, you buy headphones for excellent sound Quality, The Audio Technica ANC9 can be regraded without Question lovely sounding, as having Detailed, stereo imaging, crisp natural highs and mid-range, lovely Bass and in tune. can be worn for very long periods with sound been so well balanced.

With the success of the legendary Audio Technica ATH-M50 one can be reassured their active noise canceling ANC9 would be the best ANC headphones on the market with 3, stage ANC which is astonishing how much noise these headphone cancel out wile used on aircraft, bus
travel,,, very good indeed.

The lovely presentation in very well made and professional storage and carry case to protect your investment, superb,,, included AAA battery, which one can obtain anywhere in any airport if need arise. however battery life is very long and lasts for hours, The supplied gold plated airplane adapters and gold plated 2 silicone signal leads of different lengths make these headphones a lovely professional peace of kit.
If Mercedes or Bentley made noise canceling headphones it would be these, superb.
Best ANC Headphones on the market with sound to match.
I highly recommend these headphones, you will hear detail in your music as never before, and the annoying outside disturbance with be forgotten and for you to be totally immersed in music heaven.

Excellent, I love them and the flexibility offered by the three modes. My main suggestion is not to buy them in the UK (£200 or so). Rather, buy them on Amazon USA for more like £120. Then they truly are worthwhile - especially if you can avoid the shipping costs by buying them when you are on holiday there, or get a friend to bring them back.

I bought these headphones as a cheap alternative to bose and I don't regret my decision. The main advantage is that they work even with no batteries and the difference between bose and ATH-ANC9 are insignificant. Also they are very comfortable.

Comfortable with a good cushion seal around the ear. Good noise suppression, particularly good on trains and aeroplanes where you can really notice the difference. Excellent sound quality - bright and with presence even with the noise cancelling on. Can be used without turning them on. I like the ability to remove the cable so you can use them for sleeping on aeroplanes. Personally, I'd like to see them with Bluetooth.

Bought these at the beginning of 2013 and have used at home, walking in the street, on the tube, train and bus, as well as on aeroplanes.

Pros:
- Very comfortable, with soft memory foam ear pieces.
- Lightweight, so doesn't feel like you are wearing large over the ear headphones.
- You can listen to music without the use of the battery, a key reason why I bought the ATH-ANC9s (surprising that not more brands offer this functionality!), but there is a price (see below in Cons).
- Fits well with adjustable headband, not too tight, but not overly loose (albeit, tipping your head backwards does result in slippage of the headband).
- Sound with noise cancelling on is bright, clear and without too much emphasis of any particular frequency. Thus makes it really enjoyable to listen to audio tapes and a broad range of music. Those with a penchance for bass heavy music can just change their equaliser settings on their music player.
- Choice of noice cancellation options (three) is useful to suite the type of noise, especially the function of reduced noice cancellation that then also reduces the usual background hiss you get from such technology.
- Noice cancellation is effective (although I note I have not tried other noice cancelling headphones, so can't compare real world effectiveness against similar products, but online expert reviews put the npice cancellation as being top end, which is one reason I bought these).
- Passive noise reduction via over the ear style of headphones is reasonable.
