Audio-Technica Consumer ATH-MSR7NC overview

  • 1Description

The ATH-MSR7NC SonicPro High-Resolution Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation from Audio-Technica combine the same design features from the original ATH-MSR7, but with active noise-cancelling technology. They can be used in several applications such as music recording, mixing in the studio, listening to audio on a smartphone, and more.

The headphones are outfitted with 45mm True Motion Drivers and deliver distortion-free audio reproduction with extended frequency response. A miniature microphone is incorporated into the top of each earcup to pick up ambient noise that can then be blocked by the sound-cancelling signal when that function is active.

Furthermore, each earcup has an acoustic vent and is positioned on the side of the housing. It is 90° from the mic to enhance tuning without affecting sound quality. The result is consistent Hi-Res Audio reproduction whether in active or passive noise-cancelling modes.

With the flexible swivel design, along with the soft memory-foam earpads and headband, the ATH-MSR7NC SonicPro High-Resolution Headphones ensure lasting comfort even during the longest listening sessions. Finally, an internal 3.7V lithium polymer battery powers the active noise-cancelling function and can easily be recharged using the included USB charging cable.

The 45 mm True Motion Drivers, featuring a highly responsive diaphragm and lightweight voice coil, deliver Hi-Res Audio with controlled transients
Noise-cancelling and venting technologies work together to maintain the Hi-Res Audio reproduction in both active and passive noise-cancelling modes
360° omnidirectional noise-cancelling technology with high signal-to-noise ratio ensures consistent noise cancellation that is not affected by the user's head movement
Precision-tooled flange and crescent-shaped PCB balance and tune the mid/low frequencies for reduced distortion
Ultra-comfortable memory-foam earpads and headband
Internal rechargeable battery provides 30 hours of continuous headphone use when fully charged
Two detachable cables: standard 3.9' cable and 3.9' smartphone-compatible cable with in-line mic and controls for answering calls or controlling music
Includes airline adapter, USB charging cable, and pouch

    Audio-Technica Consumer ATH-MSR7NC reviews

    ATH-MSR7NC SonicPro High-Resolution Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic headphones! Top notch sound quality and ANC I travel frequently for my job and have come to rely on noise canceling headphones for movies, music, and phone calls throughout the duration of those trips. These headphones are, in my opinion, superior to the Bose offerings in all ways but one - weight. These are slightly heavier and not quite as comfortable as the corresponding Bose offering. However, the noise cancelling is every bit as good, and the sound quality is dramatically better. Bose does a passable job at noise canceling and decent sound, but if you are picky about your music sounding fantastic, the Audio Technica MSR7NC is the way to go. I had a pair of MSR7's prior to picking up the noise canceling version and use them at work almost all day every day. They are some of my absolute favorite headphones, and the noise canceling version is every bit as good. The only tiny complaint I have is that the rotating hinges above the earcups can get a little creaky over time. A tiny bit of silicon lubricant fixed the problem though. This is a great product, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for good over ear headphones with fantastic sound quality and solid noise cancellation.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid headset - but if you want ANC these are a poor choice This is a solid wired headset, but turned out not what I was looking for. The audio is solid, but they claim it has active noise cancellation and that's important to me. I spend a lot of time on boats and some time in the air. These headsets sound better than the BOSE QC 35, if you are in a quiet room, but out in the field (so to speak) there is quite a bit of ambient noise. The QC 35 ANC is head and shoulders above these, and the QC 35 sound much better in the field.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome headphones for metal fans I will write this review specifically for people who listen to heavy metal and hard rock. I tested literally dozens of famous brand headphones, and the Audio Technica towered above the rest in terms of sound quality (to be honest, there were some others that were great, but they were all open back construction, and because I use these for my commute, I need closed back). I listen to mainly technical death metal, melodic death metal, sludge metal, thrash, black metal and other genres that combine progressive melodic sounds with hard hitting drum and bass. Mot headphones do well on the melodies, but lose out when it comes to the extreme drumming of bands like Gojira, Lamb of God, Satyricon etc. Where others can get too heavy on the bass, the Audio Technica excels. They are in fact in perfect balance, which is easy to hear with bands like Opeth and In Flames, who shift between the melodic and the extreme metal sound. Even the growling vocals are clear and defined. I had to increase the bitrate on my music to accommodate the high resolution of these headphones, but that's a small price to pay. My only complaint has been the quality of the mic cable. It suddenly started faulting on one channel, rendering the cable useless. Highly recommended

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very good audio quality, very poor noise cancellation. Excellent audio quality.� Good, clean and accurate.�� I rate it 5 stars on sound quality. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that the NC function is useless.� It only cancels low frequency noise below 300 Hz which I didn't find out about until I got the manual.� There are very few places where there is only low frequency ambient noise.� If you want to listen to something with a radio, TV. high ambient noise level or other people talking nearby such as a waiting room or a plane these will do nothing for you.� They do a great job of cutting down the low end, but you can still hear everything else, which is pointless.� If you want good sound, I recommend the non NC version and save yourself $50.� If it weren't for the hassle, I'd return these for that version. The Bose I had did a very good job of NC, you could be sitting in a crowd of people and when you turned them on everyone went away.� But the Bose had abominable audio quality in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones, great sound, ANC feels like an extra This is just a veru good pair of headphones. It fits comfortably over my ears, build quality is great and the sound is amazing. I had to switch my entire Spotify library to extreme quality, because one can hear the difference. The noise cancelling works decently for low repetitive noises, but don't expect complete silence.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort and good isolation I am a touch hearing impaired, and while I am very pleased with the audio quality, I am not the right person to truly appreciate that aspect of these headphones. Instead, I will share my experiences that I can better relate. First these are very comfortable. They cover the entire ear and block out nearly all normal room noise even in passive mode, which I use most often. I used the active mode when returning from NYC by train and I was also impressed. I have also used the included phone cable which includes a mic. I used it with my Droid Moto Z via the USB-C adapter provided with the phone and this worked very well. It enables me to hear the conversation well where I occasionally have trouble unaided. These must, of course, be charged to use in the active noise canceling mode. My pair already had plenty of charge for me to do a quick test right out of the box and a micro USB cable is included for charging. Unfortunately, USB is no longer a hard and fast standard when it comes to available power and even charging signaling and these headphones do not include any advice on what is required. They have charged fine for me using what I had available. Note that while the now mostly obsolete two pronged airline adapter is included, a converter to 1/4 RCA plug is not, though they are easy to find.
