I purchased these headphones after reading a review on top 10 reviews. The headphones work well at reducing background noise. I couldn't hear the flight attendant when she tried to talk with me on my last flight. They also can drown out my two year-old's cries in another room, but I won't be using them for that purpose, but it was a good testament to their noise cancelling ability.
I would say that the audio quality is pretty good when the cancellation is on, but you really need a headphone amp when the cancellation is off. It isn't completely crisp, but I think that is also a function of the audio quality I am putting into it as well. Airplanes are not known for having quality audio tracks.
The headphones seem pretty durable but time will tell.
Pros Casual Listening, Travel, Block Noise

How do I change the battery on audio technica active noise cancelling headphones, quietpoint ATH-ANC7b?

On the side of the headphone without the switch there is a depression and an arrow. Use your thumb and push the plstic cover in the direction of the arrow and it will expose the 1 AAA battery.
