<b>CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Award Recipient</b><br/>Audio-Technica’s ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint® headphones use proprietary active noise-cancelling technology to provide a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise. Delivering noise cancellation up to a remarkable 95%, the ATH-ANC9 QuietPoint® headphones feature Audio-Technica’s new Tri-Level Cancellation™. Mode 1, ideal for use on airplanes, trains and buses, applies maximum noise cancellation to low frequencies. Mode 2, designed especially for use in noisy offices or crowded places, targets the mid-range frequencies, while Mode 3 creates a pristine, peaceful environment ideal for study. <br/>The headphones feature four miniature microphones, two in each earpiece, that pick up ambient noise and create a sound-cancelling signal to effectively block the noise. The ATH-ANC9 headphones also offer a cable with an inline microphone and controller for answering calls and controlling music. The mic and controller support select products, including iPhones, iPads, and many iPods. The microphone has an omnidirectional pickup pattern and it is designed for crisp intelligibility, so your voice will be clearly transmitted without having to speak directly into the mic.<br/>These headphones are designed to offer you crystal-clear sound that makes Audio-Technica the choice of leading artists worldwide. Wherever you happen to find yourself—in the comfort of your living room, in a noisy office, or settling in for a long flight—there is no better way to experience audio or immerse yourself in a peaceful environment.<br/><a href="http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/features/b3ef06fca462fcad/index.html" target="_blank"><b>Read how Active Noise-cancelling Headphones work.</b></a>
 

Will the Detachable 1.2 m (3.9') cable with inline control/ microphone and 3.5 mm (1/8") stereo mini-plugs from this product work with the ATH ANC-27?

Will the Detachable 1.2 m (3.9') cable with inline control/ microphone and 3.5 mm (1/8") stereo mini-plugs from this product work with the ATH ANC-27? I am looking for a cord with a Mic that will work with that product and the compatible one has been discontinued?
It will not. The jack on the ATH-ANC27 QuietPoint Headphones is actually a 2.5mm jack which accepts 2.5mm twist lock plug.

Crisp & intelligible pickup—far away or up close. In its “Tele” range setting, this cardioid condenser is engineered to pick up dialogue and sound effects at a distance, while bypassing ambient noise such as traffic, air-handling systems, room reverberation and mechanically coupled vibrations. Designed especially for use with video cameras.
 

My new ATR6550 plugs directly into my iPhone 5s, but it doesn't appear the iPhone is recognizing that there is an external mic connected to it. Ideas?

Do I need an adapter?
That is correct, the phone is not recognizing that a microphone has been connected to it. The iPhone jack is actually a "communications" type jack intended for use with a headset which has both stereo headphones and a mono microphone. Communications jacks and microphone jacks are not the same thing. An adapter made specifically for using a microphone with an iPhone is required. We often recommend the KM-IPHONE-MIC Adapter available from kvconnection.com

The tonearm automatic start

The Tonearm goes right into the middle of the vinyl whenever i press the start button, it does not anymore go to the beginning of the vinyl as it used to. What do i do? how do i fix it?
Check the size selector switch. Make certain it is still set to 12" for an LP record, not to 7 inch.

Playing slightly too fast

Recently my record player has started to play slightly faster than 33 1/3 rpms, only very slightly though, music generally only sounds a little bit faster than how it should sound normally. What could be the cause of this? How could I fix this?
A slightly faster speed can be the result of the drive belt position on the motor pulley. The belt should ride in the tapered section of the pulley. The belt should NOT stick up above the top, flat surface of the pulley. If it does, actual platter speed will be slightly fast.

I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH SOUND LOSS

I purchased a at 120usb turntable this past december and i am having occasional loss of signal through the left channel.If i change the input sides , the red lead always has a signal, but the white will cut out at times or not work at all.
Please watch the setup video for the AT-LP120-USB Turntable following this answer, paying particularly close attention to the section on balancing (or zeroing) the tonearm prior to setting the actual tracking force.

I suspect that there is too much downforce on the stylus assembly which is pulling the magnet for the left channel out of alignment with the pole piece that extends from the left channel coil located inside the cartridge. This is a magnetic type cartridge, so proper alignment of the dual magnets on the cantilever to the pole pieces extending from the coils is crucial for proper operation. Balance (aka level or zero) the tonearm by rotating the entire counterweight assembly in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction. This causes the weight to move backward or forward on the arm. The goal is to get the arm to float perfectly level in mid-air. this typically means the arm will be about 1/8" above the tonearm rest and parallel to the record. To "zero" the arm, next turn the black stylus force gauge ring ONLY, not the entire weight, to zero.The ring turns independently of the weight. Now to set the actual tracking force, rotate the entire counterweight assembly counterclockwise so the numbers on the ring go up in value, and stop when the ring shows the recommend tracking force. For the provided AT95E Cartridge (green colored stylus) this is 2.0 grams. Set the anti-skate control on the side of the tonearm pivot to 2 as well.

part number for clothing clip on AT898cW lavalier mic

For the AT898cW lav mic, what is the part number for the
clothing clip to attach the mic to a tie or shirt?
I am not refering to the AT8439 cable clip.
AT8461 is the model number for the alligator style clip with holder. AT8462 is the model number for the viper (pins) clip with holder. Note that both clips utilize a snap-in holder that holds the microphone cable, NOT the microphone itself.

Battery life?

What kind of battery life should be expected from the AAA battery? I am traveling and will have spares, but how many is the question.
A fresh alkaline battery can provide up to 60 hours of active noise cancelling operation.

Distortion

I have owned this turntable for several months. Today I put on a record and the volume of the speakers was left really high, and when the needle dropped I obviously heard a loud thump. After that, I noticed records that had played well before all sound distorted. Did I blow the preamp?
Actually, the fact that the volume of the speakers was left in a high position would have no effect on the turntable itself. The turntable outputs the same volume level regardless of the position of the volume control for your speakers.
Do other sources (CD, radio etc.) play undistorted through your speakers? If they do not, your speakers may be blown. If your system has a headphone jack, listening through heaphones could help determine this.
If other sources do play undistorted, verify that the phono preamplifier inside the turntable is turned OFF if you are connecting the turntable to a set of dedicated PHONO jacks on your stereo amplifier or receiver.That is, the switch on the rear should be in the PHONO position, not the LINE position.If you continue to have distorted sound, the stylus (needle) may be damaged. The ATN3600L is the replacement styus for your turntable.

Overhang?

In a previous answer you indicated overhang was 16mm but did not indicated where to measure from. Can we use the Technics overhang gauge, which gives you 52 mm from the headshell gasket?
The effective length of the tonearm on the AT-LP120-USB Turntable is 230.5mm which puts the stylus overhang (the distance the stylus tip extends beyond the center of the spindle when the tonearm is directly over the spindle) at 16mm. I believe the Technics overhang gauge sets the stylus overhang at the spindle at 15mm. Extend the stylus tip 1mm beyond the end of the gauge and you should be good to go. To verify the overhang is correct, simply measure 16mm out from the center of the spindle on the side of the spindle opposite the tonearm pivot when the tonearm is positioned directly over the spindle. The styus tip should be at the 16mm mark.

Left side seems louder than right?

I hear the left side louder than the right.There is clear sound from the right bass is tight so the driver is not blown. Checked the balance all the basic trouble shooting. any feedback would be grately appreciated.
If you are experiencing this problem when using the headphones with multiple music sources or a different set of headphones connected to the same music source do not exhibit the same problem, return the headphones to us for servicing. Following is a link to our Return Instructions.
