Ausounds launches first over-ear noise cancelling headphone to UK

Ausounds has launched its first over-ear headphone model to the UK, the AU-XT ANC.

Using Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) technology found in Los Angeles-based Ausounds’ in-ear models, the AU-XT ANC features 40mm Graphene drivers and tuned ear cup enclosure resulting in deep and fast bass with crystal clear vocals.

With a noise reduction of -25dB, the AU-XT ANC allows the user to isolate from external noises without compromising music playback sound quality. This custom feed-forward noise cancellation technology was designed for artists to travel, listen and create new music wherever they are, free from distracting background noise. Ausounds’ ANC system ensures the AU-XT ANC’s frequency response is unaffected by the ANC system, ensuring perfect audio in a super-quiet environment and exceptional dynamic range

The headphones offer aptX HD Bluetooth, onboard music controls, 30 hours battery life and fast charging via USB-C. Even with ANC turned on, the AU-XT offers up to 14 hours of runtime. For those in a hurry to charge-and-go, a 15-minute top-up using the high-power USB-C connection allows the AU-XT ANC to deliver an hour and a half’s playback.

The new headphones have been designed for all-day comfort. The soft silicon headband provides gentle even clamping pressure over the head and the ear cup materials integrate the softest synthetic protein leather, covering a memory foam core. The combination is engineered for long listening comfort while providing acoustic sealing for improved isolation. The silicone band and ear pads are sweat and moisture resistant.

Supplied with a travel case, cables and an aircraft adapter, the AU-XT ANC is a great high-performance headphone for home or travel.
