Audio-Technica has announced the offering of next gen headphones. The impactful Solid Bass, noise-cancelling QuietPoint headphones and fitness-oriented SonicSport models offer a variety of personal listening choices.
Audio-Technica’s new ATH-WS55i over-ear and ATH-CKS55i in-ear Solid Bass headphones deliver impactful bass along with accurate midrange and highs, for those who want to hear hard rock, hip-hop, electronica and other bass-driven music the way it was meant to be heard. Both feature an integrated mic and in-line three-button remote for iPhone, iPad and iPod that lets wearers control volume and music playback functions. The remote also lets iPhone users answer calls over the headphones, or while talking via Skype or VoIP on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
The headphones utilize an exclusive Double Air Chamber System that controls and focuses the air flow from the drivers to provide expanded bass output. Also available are the ATH-WS55 (in black and red/black) and ATH-CKS55, which offer the same features as the ATH-WS55i and ATH-CKS55i without the communications capabilities.
Other new Solid Bass headphones are now available in a variety of price ranges. They include the over-ear ATH-WS99 and ATH-WS77 and the in-ear ATH-CKS1000, ATH-CKS99i, ATH-CKS99 and ATH-CKS77.
And who doesn’t need a little peace and quiet now and then, especially when they want to listen to favorite music? Audio-Technica’s new QuietPoint active noise-cancelling ATH-ANC29 over-ear headphones feature redesigned earcups and a bold Audio-Technica logo for a sleek, contemporary look, and a restyled headband with extra padding for a comfortable fit. Designed to deliver exceptional sound with powerful bass, a natural midrange, detailed treble and precise imaging, the ATH-ANC29 offers up to 87% noise cancellation and works even if the batteries run out. Its detachable cord also enables its use as cordless noise-cancelling headphones.
Audio-Technica’s new SonicSport in-ear headphones are designed for stay-in-place fit while jogging, sports and active use. All have an IPX5 lab-certified waterproof rating and are sweat-proof and washable. The ATH-CP700 model has an in-line volume and music playback functions for compatible Apple devices, and features a thin headband that wraps around the back of the head. It also has a flexible pivot ear-fit design that directs clear audio and impactful bass toward the ear canal, while allowing awareness of outside sounds. The ATH-CKP500 headphones feature secure-hold C-tip earpieces that nestle in the outer ear, while the ATH-CKP200 has a hinged ear hook that adjusts around the ears. The ATH-CKP500 and ATH-CKP200 are available in a variety of colors and have XS/S/M/L choice of sound isolating eartips, and ridged eartips to allow a low amount of ambient sound for great safety outdoors.
